enjoying your work to the greatest extent possible

It was specifically designed for...

Who may have experienced a crisis of confidence as a result, because you thought you were doing so well.

Your next career move is on the horizon.

meaningful and profitable at the same time.

So that you can...

Stay centered during conflict or challenges.

Stop and objectively look at the way things are being done.

Cultivate the culture of your existing business. OR launch a new business.

Balance being strategically proactive with tactics.

Ensure hiring and performance is culturally aligned.

Prevent problems. Trouble shoot as needed.

Revamp operational protocols and schedules. Make sure you're doing the right work.

Keep yourself and employees organized, engaged, and feeling good.

KNOW that working ON the business is as important as working IN the business.

“I had been feeling helpless at work, waiting for someone to fix the situations that were making me unhappy. Now I can be as happy and powerful as I want! I just have to be willing to own my outcomes, proactively ask for what I want with an open heart, and trust myself to have whatever conversations I need in order to get where I want to go. This honesty has led to the best chapter in our company’s history, both from a financial and morale standpoint. IAMX is the best ROI we’ve ever had with a training program, hands down!”

~ Tracy MacNeal, CEO, Materna Medical

"I use IAMX along with Karen's support to instill life values and meaning into my professional work. Using the IAMX Compass to inform organizational strategy and execute company tactics toward clearly articulated goals moves us in the direction of greater meaning and profit. The IAMX compass is a tool that helps navigate the uncertainty of markets while maintaining a deep sense of who we are and how we want to show up in the world. I recommend IAMX for people who want their True Work in the World and their career to align. I also hope to establish business to business relationships with other companies skilled in navigating the IAMX Compass. It's a game changer."

~ Link Shumaker, CEO, Biosystems Engineering

“Using IAMX to create our Genius Culture is all about us having those conversations that afford somebody who could be the victim of change the opportunity to instead be the architect of that change. So if I have an idea and I’m about to thrust a change on somebody, the onus is on ME to work with people I’m thrusting this change upon to work WITH them on creating the change. Why I’m making the change has to be clear, and WHAT the change looks like also becomes clear – with people’s involvement. That’s the essence of Genius Culture.”

~Peter Frost, Chairman and CEO, ATW Companies

“The True Self Assessment easily showed me how I had the controllable stuff with my work under control. The assessment did show me the opportunity I have which is looking more closely at the relationships around me and the stakeholders in the rest of my world where I can have more influence. I see the gap, and I’m going to deal with it!”

~ Martin Evans, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Renaissance Energy Partners

“Karen is a dynamic, smart and dedicated leadership and career coach who has an amazing talent for getting clients connected to their own potential and power. Using the IAMX approach, she helps me see areas where I am blocking things from coming into my life, and empowers me to know my value, claim my best life and get what I want – increasing my pay in the process.”

~Jill Taylor, Senior Sales Director, Alaffia

“IAMX allowed us to clarify everyone’s wants and act on them, instead of trying to force people to do things or getting caught up in either/or thinking. We use the IAMX Compass in almost every meeting to help us clarify WHY we’re doing something and create buy-in with less push back. IAMX has helped us to let go of or ignore small speed bumps and not see them as walls.

~ Rob Hall, President, Paramatech Corporation

“IAMX has given us a common language to name where we’re spending our energy and assess whether this is a wise investment, without making people bad or wrong in the process. Before IAMX it was confusing because some people thrive on drama, they create it or are passive. Now we deal with it in a constructive way.”

~ Mike Howard, President, Judson A. Smith

“I’ve been successful creating Genius Culture by using the IAMX tools in a unique and flexible way. Each group of people is as unique as each individual in the group – some need more structured and formal training, others need informal experiential learning. I’ve been able to use the tools in appropriate ways in a just-in-time fashion – to create culture change that sticks.”

~Toni Tamagno, Director of Human Resources, ATW Companies

“It takes time to understand why a project is important and plan what we are trying to accomplish. But when we slow down to do this work, to know what’s in scope and out of scope with a project, we have greater success. IAMX guided us in how to be more successful with our projects.”
