Karen Gervais

 

Executive coach and leadership consultant and
… agile acrobat

Karen has developed pioneering approaches in creative visioning, personal branding, executive presence, emotional recycling and boardroom relationships.  Valued for an engaging style and sparking fresh insights, she is able to get underneath difficult issues and release the energy in a human system where it matters most.  She is passionate about helping individuals and teams connect profoundly with their unique potential and breakthrough to new levels of performance and fulfilment.  Karen has worked transformationally at senior and board level in Europe, Asia and America over the past 15 years. She is a Faculty Member at the global Academy of Executive Coaching and spent over 10 years with EY Management Consultants in leadership and organisational development.

Being at the forefront is exciting to Karen. She was one of the first to gain a Post-graduate Certificate in Emotional Intelligence, worked with Henley Business School and the BT Global Challenge to research the link between emotional intelligence and performance, and co-developed an EMCC award-winning diploma in advanced executive coaching.  Karen is ICF-accredited, has a Gestalt Certificate in Advanced Individual and Organisational Change and is an NLP Practitioner. Just as energetic outside work, she loves running, tennis, singing, dancing,  doing handstands, 3 fabulous daughters and working with the musical youth theatre – sadly not as a performer!
