She helps them to articulate the key behaviours aligned to each value, thereby enabling leaders to set clear expectations, lead by example and hold themselves and their team accountable to behaving in ways that enable business success.

Team Building

As an accredited facilitator of the Team Management Systems (TMS) assessment suite, Karen guides teams to a deeper level of understanding of their individual work preferences and how they work together as a group. These workshops give participants the opportunity to understand how to leverage the strengths that they bring as well as areas in which they may not have strength or appropriate focus. Karen helps individuals to discover what their strengths and weaknesses are, and what they need in order to successfully achieve outcomes.

Facilitator

Understanding the concepts underpinning the TMS profile will not only provide participants with a deeper understanding of their own approaches to work, but will also improve their ability to work in line with the work styles and preferences of team members and other colleagues.
