“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.
