HERE’S WHAT OUR EXECUTIVE COACHING CLIENTS ARE SAYING.
“Karen develops world class success with her clients by applying a model of achievement she discovered through her journey to compete in the toughest race in the world – the Ironman World Championships.” — Brian Tracy, international speaker and best-selling author
“I’m amazed at how quickly my coach uncovered my blind spots, and now I’m learning tools to move forward.” Bill Steigers, CEO, Steigers Corporation
“I would rate Velocity Leadership Consulting coaching a 10. The coaching process challenged me where I needed it most. My coach understood the uniqueness of my business. I found our sessions highly productive.” George Eddy, CEO, Heinrich Marketing
“Velocity Leadership Consulting coaches listen. They care and they have professional experience from the employee, employer and client perspective. This insight is invaluable! I have a coach to give me support, push me through seemingly impossible challenges and encourage me to take steps I would never have thought possible on my own. Don’t be afraid, get a coach and get on with the career (and life) you want.” K. Morrow, CEO
“There is no amount of money that can account for the value that Velocity’s coaching has brought to me.” Bill Steigers, CEO, Steigers Corporation
“After one session, I am already experiencing some shifts…. I’m clearer, I’ve let go of a couple of things that were keeping me from achieving my business goals and things are starting to flow more easily. I’m thrilled!” Mary Ann Tate, President.
“Because of our coaching…
I secured a new client with 65 employees. (worth $60,000)
A current client renewed for 3 years. (worth $150,000)
I am now excited to create a plan and re-energize my business model.
Family is coming to town and I am feeling happy about it, not stressed.
I am at ease with a super-busy month, whereas before I would have been completely stressed out and my partner would have been impacted.
My partner noticed a difference in me; I’m more present and calm.
I am moving toward renewing my spiritual connection after a big epiphany, brought about by our coaching.”
Kate R, CEO
“Velocity Leadership Consulting assisted me in overcoming habits and patterns that I knew were holding me back from advancing in my professional and personal life. Your coaching comes with my highest recommendations, as what you do simply works! This is the most important work I’ve ever done, because it is changing my thinking.” Bill Steigers, CEO, Steigers Corporation
“Velocity coaches have an amazing knack for cutting to the heart of the matter. Their ability to hear what is going on underneath what appears to be the issue to bring better understanding of the true motivation is incredible. They very naturally guide by listening first, then speaking and suggesting, which always makes leaders feel like they are in a safe environment where true transformation can occur. It is clear that Velocity coaches care about what the leader is trying to accomplish and is there to help achieve those goals. Thank you, Velocity!” Amy Lynch, AVP, Pinnocol Assurance
“From our initial conversation I knew without a doubt that Karen was the coach for me. She listened to my challenges, what my exit strategy was and why a coach could help me reach my goals. Her response was shockingly spot on. Not only did she listen to my story, she responded with questions that made me stop and re-evaluate where I really was and what I needed to commit to in order to reach my business goals. Her promise to me was to hold me accountable to the initial goals I set for myself and to do the work necessary to meet those goals. Karen has not only kept me accountable but has given me the tools to create boundaries around situations that don’t meet my ultimate goal. Under Karen’s guidance I realize that I have been holding myself back from building the business I’m meant to have. Under her coaching direction, I have not only created a 7-year exit strategy but am finally aware of the power of the subconscious mind. Karen’s knowledge, professionalism and integrity is immeasurable. I am looking forward to working with Karen to meet my long term business goals.” Diana Anderson, President, DES Marketing
“It is truly amazing to see how seemingly small changes can yield tremendous results. What Karen excels at is helping you get out of your own way so you can unlock your potential. There is no magic pill, however…you’ll need to be honest and ready to work! When we started working together, I was struggling with team development, effective communication up and down the organizational ladder, and with strategic thinking and actions (vs doing the small meaningless tasks that clog my email box). Six months later, I feel completely in tune with my career and how to achieve success in what I do, both personally and professionally. Looking back, it’s amazing at what we have been able to accomplish together. Thanks Karen!” Adam Snyder, Executive Vice President, FirstBank
“Karen provides great insight into how you can increase your effectiveness. She offers constructive counsel with an empathetic but uncompromising delivery. I have not only enjoyed working with Karen, but have also benefited greatly from it.” George Eddy, CEO, Heinrich Marketing
“My issue is with schedule—feeling like I don’t have enough time to get everything done. Working with Karen (Velocity Leadership) challenged me to identify the biggest thing taking all my time and changing it. Like other leaders, I am a pleaser by nature, which meant I became the go-to and I thought it was easier to just tell others how to do it. What coaching got me to realize is that by continuing with this, I not only deplete myself physically, I also deprive my company of my best work. In addition, I cripple others from being empowered to be their own advocate and think of and find solutions themselves. This involved changing my pattern and, in turn, helping others change theirs. Since changing my behavior and theirs, we all have more time and higher-level work results. Thank you Karen.” Kelly Beauvais, Operations Manager, Flood & Peterson
“Prior to Velocity Coaching I had used intuition, being readily available, a strong work ethic, and a “lead by example” approach as my leadership style. This approach, while having many positive attributes, resulted in not finding time for strategy, high impact efforts, or proper balance in life. After working with Karen at Velocity Coaching I realized disciplined power work times and well defined deliverables were the key to unlocking new leadership skills. Working smarter vs harder is a much better “lead by example” approach. In addition Karen helped me appreciate the importance of restful renewal which has translated into improved creativity, goal setting, and increased energy for the team.
Karen’s methodical approach of thought provoking questions, excellent listening skills, regular coaching sessions, and strong follow through are what sets her apart from other coaches. In addition Karen encouraged me to share this journey with the team so they could see as a leader I am trying to balance many of the same issues they face each day. This empowered the team to work on themselves, grow as leaders, and opened the door for open conversations concerning our strategy and priorities. In short, thanks to Velocity Coaching the team is working smarter, on the most important things, and at the same time have the time and energy to be creative. Jim R, CEO FirstBank Colorado
