Karen is an amazing coach and such a wonderful person! I recently took her buyers signals training class and absolutely loved it! The DISC model has really helped with being able to better recognize the communication styles of my clients, team members and family members in order to improve relationships with them. This training session has so much value especially with such an exceptional trainer, so I believe everyone could benefit greatly from this workshop!

Working with Karen in one of her Mastermind Groups, with its emphasis on DISC, has helped me to better recognize the communication styles of my clients, and team members allowing me to better serve their needs. As a bonus, I’ve been able to apply these same concepts to better communicate with my wife as well as other family members.I strongly feel that Karen’s leadership and the insights of my fellow group members were instrumental in helping me to reassure and guide my clients through a tumultuous year.

Karen has been an excellent coach to me and my business in many ways, many times. Most recently, I took her Buyer Signals Workshop, and I used not for sales but for recruitment. It helped me make a hire that’s a great fit for our high-performing team, and the fact that I could use the material in this way shows how versatile and useful it is. Thanks, Karen!

Karen Nutter has been my business coach for many years and has helped me to work ON my business as well as IN my business. Last week I took a workshop with her on buyer signals. The skills that she passed along in that class are invaluable. She has given me tools to help every personality type with the style, vocabulary and understanding that will help me, help my customers. Karen's knowledge, professionalism and delivery is all top notch. I encourage everyone in the business world to consider taking this workshop. These are not just business skills, these are life skills that Karen has given me. Karen, I cannot thank you enough!

Working with Coach Karen has been tremendous for my business! Most recently, I’ve taken her Buyer Signals workshop and was so impressed by the amount of content and how she delivered the information. It was so helpful and I was able to use what I learned the very same day to close a $2500 sale with confidence and ease! Highly recommend this workshop as well as her other coaching programs, she knows her stuff!! Thank you, Coach Karen!

Karen is one of a kind. I had the privilege of recently attending her Buyers Signals workshop. There were so many great takeaways in just a couple short hours. By implementing her techniques I made a sale (within a week of attending the workshop). Karen is compassionate and truly cares about helping people maximize their potential. I would highly recommend everyone attend her workshops.

When you take a workshop you hope that the skills you learn will be useful. Well let me tell you, the Buyers Signals workshop exceeded my expectations for usefulness. I took the course on a Thursday and was able to put my newly learned skills to use the very next morning, closing a $4800 sale! Thank you to Coach Karen for a supremely valuable workshop. I highly recommend the Buyers Signals workshop to any sales person looking to improve their buyer interaction.

Karen Nutter’s mastermind group helped me recognize DISC styles at work with, and between my peers. Our different styles helped us get feedback from all perspectives. We bonded and also became more accountable to each other throughout the year. With Karen’s guidance and advanced facilitation skills, she was able to support our growth as successful business owners. She let nothing slip in our communication and participation within the group. This made for great group dynamics.

Karen has been a game changer for me personally in helping me identify and understand my emotions and the impact they have on my relationships personally and professionally.The CBK Certified DISC Facilitator training has enabled me to assess my leaders and help them understand themselves as well as how they can interact with one another and our clientele. In addition to that, as I grow my coaching practice, the assessment tool has afforded me the opportunity to reach and help more people than I could have ever imagined. I am forever grateful to Karen!

Attended Karen’s Buyer’s Signals program and highly recommend it. I learned so much about how to recognize the different buyer signals that people demonstrate and how to capitalize on them. Plus I walked away with tools to continue to help me recognize them. Karen made the learning experience a lot of fun, too.

Karen is a wonderful soul and she knows what she is talking about! I took a class with her and the Artifex Gutter installation team did as well; since we took her class our sales have more than doubled and we are booked into the middle of April! Thank you Karen for making us comfortable and teaching us new ways to talk to people in order to make them more comfortable as well. We all can’t wait to find out even more!

I met Karen at a networking event. After being reluctant to pay for coaching over the years, she has helped me organize my daily routine and focus what is important and what is not. Highly recommended, cause we all need a little bit of help!
Karen is a great coach. I had the pleasure of working with her recently doing an exercise about my Why. She is thoughtful, insightful and a great motivator. Thank you for asking all the right questions and reminding me about me. 😘😘😘

I had the pleasure of meeting Karen Nutter (Coaching by Karen) several years ago at a conference. Karen was one of the featured speakers, and I truly felt like she was speaking directly to me. I instantly knew that I needed to meet with her for a coaching session. While I have had many coaching sessions in my professional career, none were quite as eye opening and beneficial as the coaching session I had with Karen. After speaking for a short period of time, Karen was able to assess my needs and guide me to make the best career decision of my life.
After being in banking for 15 years, I made the decision to start my own business in the field where my passion lies. Karen was instrumental in helping me plan for the transition, get the business going, and has been a tremendous support ever since. Whenever I need advice on taking my business to the next level, I know that I can count on Karen.

Karen came to PS27 Ventures during our Leadership Week and gave a presentation on emotional intelligence. Our staff learned the importance of managing tasks to work toward overall goals. Karen also touched on improving mind-body connection through meditation, showing a genuine curiosity for others well-being and being able to sense emotions effectively and apply them to collaboration. The presentation was interactive and memorable!

I have been going to Coaching by Karen for almost 5 years now, and besides all the of the growth I've experiencied not in just my personal life but in my career as well, she is the most down to earth, relateable woman I have ever met. She has a demeanor that can put the most restless mind at ease and is always there to help. She offers great classes from management courses through EQ (emotional intelligence) to personal classes and workshops on past present and future situations. If you are curious or even feel the need for a little direction I would HIGHLY recommend Coaching by Karen!

I met Karen a few years back at a conference. She was a featured speaker, and I truly felt she was speaking directly to me. Soon after, I met with her for some coaching. I knew I needed a change in career, and Karen helped me figure out exactly what that change should look like. I have been working with her ever since. Karen keeps me motivated, gives helpful hints, and sincerely wants to see me succeed. I could not imagine being a business owner without her support and guidance!

Karen is an outstanding corporate and individual coach. She has the business experience needed to understand the intricacies of leadership, and a personal history that makes her naturally empathetic and supportive. Her book on emotional intelligence, "The Power of EQ: Stronger Leadership through Emotional Intelligence" has made a huge difference in my life. If you're looking for a REAL coach, call Karen.

I had been teaching for eight years. I was coming home often with tears in my eyes and having tremendous anxiety about work every day. My husband came home one day and gave me a gift, life coaching sessions with Karen Nutter. I decided to resign from my job in hope of finding another that would allow for a better life/ work balance. After I left my job I consistently met with Karen who helped me work through my transition. Her enthusiasm for my wellbeing helped me to focus on the positive and move forward on my new journey. She helped me reflect and analyze my goals and passions using various techniques, which I can use in the future. Each session was always productive. Even though I know Karen has many clients, when you are in a session with her she makes you feel like you are the most important person in the world. Her integrity and positive nature helped me get through an emotional time in my life. I would recommend life coaching with Karen Nutter to anyone who is trying to find balance in their life.
