Dare To Lead™
Who we are is how we lead. As a Certified Facilitator and Coach, I specialize in bringing out the inner leader in everyone interested in enhancing their careers and improving their work and home lives.
Karen Jones has the amazing capacity to challenge you to dream more, think more deeply, and achieve more, all from a deep heart-centered place. I have witnessed team members break through major challenges and emerge stronger and more resilient. While working with her, you will become a better person and therefore a better leader.
- Founder and CEO, Nonprofit
Exceptional executive coaching involves the whole person. Chances are that whatever is challenging you in the workplace is also challenging you in your life.
I first experienced Karen as a coach while going for a big promotion. Our weekly coaching sessions were something I looked forward to AND got a little nervous about… I knew that she was holding the space for me to be my best self and I did not want to disappoint. I did accomplish that goal and since have been able to witness her coaching prowess as part of an executive coaching program she developed for my company. I marvel at her ability to leave people empowered and challenged to bring their best, even in sticky situations. Karen is a masterful coach!
- Sen. Executive, Global Company
A speaker is asked to speak because of something he or she does surpassingly well.
As an entrepreneur and Toastmaster, I always admire quality, funny, engaging, insightful and prepared public speakers. When I first heard Karen speak, I immediately was drawn to her way with words, her unique delivery style and the valuable, relevant content all of her presentations bring forth. Karen is a joy to listen to and I know that anyone I put in front of her will walk away enriched. She is a leader and speaker that I try to emulate…a high standard!
A Unique Partner
My background is unique and informs my executive coaching approach. I’ve had a 17-year career in sales and management, 19 years in psychoneuroimmunology (research and clinical work), 30 years of experience in private practice as a psychotherapist, and 20 years as a personal and executive coach. I have the experience and training to work with all kinds of businesspeople from solopreneurs to busy medical practices to C-suite executives.
I enjoy working with clients who are motivated to change from within, sharpen their skillsets, and want to live up to their potential to make a larger contribution on this planet.
