“I loved and valued [my coach’s] gift so much that I looked into becoming a coach myself to give that to others” – Karen Flynn
Name: Karen Flynn, ACC
Coaching Specialization: High impact coach for immigrant professionals who face uncertainty, discomfort and loneliness in their new lives; I spent over 20 yrs living/working in the Caribbean, Asia and the UK, adapting and raising my daughter through life-changing experiences. My clients are from diverse cultural backgrounds and I encourage them to be brave in pursuing professional & personal growth.
Coach Training Program: CTI
Why you became a coach: Fell into it; I spoke with a coach in England after I sold my communications agency (I had moved from Singapore to London). I feared the words “empty nester” and “retirement” and was looking for a meaningful second chapter! I loved and valued her gift so much that I looked into becoming a coach myself to give that to others.
Favourite coaching book: Go Beyond Resilience, Find your GRIT: a special book written from my heart, celebrating my first half-century and all my failures & successes.
Your happy place: On a hiking trail with my beautiful dog Tigger (12 years young).
Punctuation mark that best represents your personality and why? The exclamation for sure! I punch things home!!
3 words friends would use to describe you: Powerful, generous, maverick
Advice to a new coach: Practice: coach people from diverse backgrounds and situations. Don’t be in a hurry to “find your niche”. It will evolve as surely as you will as a coach.
Anything else you want us to know about you: I am seriously intolerant of conscious ignorance.
