“My bi-monthly meetings with Karl was time well spent! He offered me a wide array of tools and advice which actively helped me become a better leader.

Karl truly takes the time with his clients and is extremely comprehensive in his consultations and follow up. Working with Karl has been extremely insightful and helpful in highlighting my personal skills, values, and purpose in order to develop the strategy and structure I need as I try to pursue an unconventional direction for my career and life.”

“Karl helped me navigate to my purpose in such a profound way that I was actually speechless. The process works! It led me to a purpose that was so obvious when it was discovered, yet had somehow remain hidden in me. Through the compass project, Karl led me through a path of many twists and turns, but ended up putting me exactly where I need to be. It was a truly amazing exercise and experience and I highly recommend it for anyone who feels rudderless in their quest to find their purpose. I feel renewed and as Karl often says, “Lit up.”

- Bobbi R. | Boston

“When Karl first asked if we wanted to be a leader in my field, I thought ‘no way’! I simply want to write my books, make money and go about my life making no waves. But the question kept nagging at me. Is that all I wanted from my career? Have I not always been a leader through example? Do I not want to lead in the fields I write about? Eventually, I realized that I did want more. And Karl was the one to get me there.
After two consultations, I was blown away with how much I had to learn. But more than that, I was thankful and impressed with how much knowledge Karl has to convey. And here is the clincher–he is easy to understand. Everything nugget of information is given in a way that I can digest, process, and utilize. We go through the steps of what it will take for me to reach my goals. We do an overview to ensure that everything and anything that I can handle is being done. The process is then integrated into my life.
Now my career path is set to turn my dreams into my reality. There is no wondering how on earth I will ever get what I want. Karl has been giving me the know-how, and I am becoming leader in my field.”
- Heather Leigh | Author
