The session was very helpful! Karo quickly jumped on board and guided me exactly where I needed to be! She is very quick witted and and excellent strategist! Really enjoyed the time with her and the thoughts she put in my brain!
I am so grateful to have had the privilege of working with Karolina. She was clear and concise in her feedback and gave me exactly what I needed to make my idea even better. The whole experience felt like a conversation where she was excited about my idea and genuinely wanted to help me make it better. She has opened my eyes to new opportunities that I hadn't thought about previously. I could not recommend a better mentor than her!
Karo was a great listener during our session, making sure to understand what were my concerns while offering practical ideas on how to overcome them. I really appreciated the structured feedback she provided. Thanks again!
Karo has listened to my points very carefully and she has showed a lot of empathy. She has shared good tips to move forward.
Karo is a great coach! She really helped me in a challenge I brought to our session by building empathy, actively listening, making powerful questions that helped me put things into perspective. Thank you for your help!
I enjoyed our first session, it was straight to the point and also very structured. I know what the next steps are for me. Plus, I enjoyed the communication as it felt we were both connected. And you seemed to understand straight away what I needed.
Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life - Life-Changing Tools for Healthy Relationships
Marshall B. Rosenberg, Deepak Chopra
5,000,000 COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE • TRANSLATED IN MORE THAN 35 LANGUAGES What is Violent Communication? If "violent" means acting in ways that result in hurt or harm, then much of how we communicate—judging others, bullying, having racial bias, blaming, finger pointing, discriminating, speaking without listening, criticizing others or ourselves, name-calling, reacting when angry, using political rhetoric, being defensive or judging who's "good/bad" or what's "right/wrong" with people—could indeed be called "violent communication." What is Nonviolent Communication? Nonviolent Communication is the integration of four things: • Consciousness: a set of principles that support living a life of compassion, collaboration, courage, and authenticity • Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance • Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even in disagreement, and how to move toward solutions that work for all • Means of influence: sharing "power with others" rather than using "power over others" Nonviolent Communication serves our desire to do three things: • Increase our ability to live with choice, meaning, and connection • Connect empathically with self and others to have more satisfying relationships • Sharing of resources so everyone is able to benefitView
The Phoenix Project - A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win
Gene Kim, Kevin Behr, George Spafford
***Over a half-million sold! And available now, the Wall Street Journal Bestselling sequel The Unicorn Project*** “Every person involved in a failed IT project should be forced to read this book.”—TIM O'REILLY, Founder & CEO of O'Reilly Media “The Phoenix Project is a must read for business and IT executives who are struggling with the growing complexity of IT.”—JIM WHITEHURST, President and CEO, Red Hat, Inc. Five years after this sleeper hit took on the world of IT and flipped it on it's head, the 5th Anniversary Edition of The Phoenix Project continues to guide IT in the DevOps revolution. In this newly updated and expanded edition of the bestselling The Phoenix Project, co-author Gene Kim includes a new afterword and a deeper delve into the Three Ways as described in The DevOps Handbook. Bill, an IT manager at Parts Unlimited, has been tasked with taking on a project critical to the future of the business, code named Phoenix Project. But the project is massively over budget and behind schedule. The CEO demands Bill must fix the mess in ninety days or else Bill's entire department will be outsourced. With the help of a prospective board member and his mysterious philosophy of The Three Ways, Bill starts to see that IT work has more in common with a manufacturing plant work than he ever imagined. With the clock ticking, Bill must organize work flow streamline interdepartmental communications, and effectively serve the other business functions at Parts Unlimited. In a fast-paced and entertaining style, three luminaries of the DevOps movement deliver a story that anyone who works in IT will recognize. Readers will not only learn how to improve their own IT organizations, they'll never view IT the same way again. “This book is a gripping read that captures brilliantly the dilemmas that face companies which depend on IT, and offers real-world solutions.”—JEZ HUMBLE, Co-author of Continuous Delivery, Lean Enterprise, Accelerate, and The DevOps HandbookView
My motivation for meeting with Ms. Karo was to gather a new perspective about career change in the human resources profession, especially how to make the transition process easier and how to improve my learning in this area.
The conversation was both motivating and energizing. What impressed me the most was how systematic and open she was in addressing my questions, as well as her vast experience and knowledge.
Definitely worth a session!
Dear Mam, Thank you so much!
