Like a light bulb being switched on!

by Lisa McCarthy

Working through the "Breakthrough Thinking" process with Karl was like a light bulb being switched on. The process combined with Karl's focused, personable and expert coaching allowed me to identify and understand both how I think, and how the conflicts created by my thinking process were holding me back. I left with a breakthrough strategy for myself supported by three personal objectives.

This process is unique, extremely effective and has helped me shift into a new gear as a leader.

by Linden Vazey

This process is unique, extremely effective and has helped me shift into a new gear as a leader. I'm excited to see the results that reframing my thinking will produce. I highly recommend Karl to anyone who is looking for results, fast.

The positive energy you injected was infectious.

Adam Heath

Karl, thank you for the insight you recently shared as part of our individual and team-based LSI exercise. I personally found the work to be exceptional and have had similar feedback from other members of the team. The positive energy you injected was infectious and appreciated, as was the personal care you took with each of our individual 1-to-1 debriefs.

Karl is an excellent guide to extracting the maximum value from the Life-Styles Inventory™ (LSI)

by Andrew Creahan

Karl is an excellent guide to extracting the maximum value from the Life-Styles Inventory™ (LSI) and Theory of Constraints Thinking Process (TOCTP) tools. His extensive knowledge of the tools themselves and his ability to ask the right questions has been much appreciated.

Karl was a great coach for me.

by Jacqueline Lynne

Karl was a great coach for me. He was able to understand where I was coming from and was able to help me through the difficult moments that I really struggled through. There were times when I couldnt find the answer. Karl was able to read the situation and break the information down until I was able to establish my own solution. He was professional and very effective in his methods as a coach.

I highly recommend Karl as your next business mentor, coach or facilitator.

by Ian Gower

Having worked with Karl now on several different projects, I can highly recommend him when methodical unbiased problem solving, team development coaching or Collective Agreement Negotiations are required. The experience, methods and tools Karl uses, help break down the issues into a clear and concise picture, without the conflict we have had in the past. The time spent "Setting the Scene" with Karl, will greatly reduce the overall time it would normally take to work through problem solving or negotiation. Once again, I highly recommend Karl as your next business mentor, coach or facilitator.

Fulfil your potential!

The greatest value of LSI 1 lies in the fact that no other self-assessment tool actually reveals and measures the thinking and behavioural styles that help or hinder you in fulfiling your potential.

Grant Kedian

I have worked with Karl for the last year or so. Through this time Karl has had a significant impact on my thinking and the way that I operate in general. Highly recommend Karl to anyone that wishes to dive deeper into their "go to" behaviours, and reassess and add to the tools that they have at their disposal.

Clearing the way for the development, practice and embedding of new ways of thinking.

Karl combines the elements of High Performance Engagement, systems and TOC thinking and a razor sharp approach to coaching to bring incredible value to our interactions. He has a brilliant way of using ordinary conversation to help you unpack your own baggage, clearing the way for the development, practice and embedding of new ways of thinking.

Highly recommended.

Karl guided me through the Human Synergistics Life Styles Inventory process in a very engaging, thoughtful and interesting way. Highly recommended.

A fantastic coach.

by Clive Cornford

Karl is a fantastic coach. What has impressed me the most about Karl is the sensitive way he encourages authentic self reflection particularly in those areas that can be confronting and/or challenging. As a consequence real and lasting personal and professional change can occur.

I now use these proven techniques in my own coaching - they work!

by Jo Lee

Karl has put the "spring back into my step" - I now feel motivated, inspired and positively charged to power into 2016. Karl has been my Coach and Mentor for the 2 years I have been a People Advisor. The skills and techniques Karl uses have enabled me to focus on clearly understanding my objectives and to set goals to chip away those 'barriers" which I had previously thought would stop me from achieving success. I now use these proven techniques in my own coaching - they work! I would strongly recommend Karl to anybody who wants to achieve success.
