often people feel “stuck” in their current situation whether
in their personal life or at work. It is not unusual for clients tell me
why they and/or their team can’t do something… it’s usually
positioned as if they are the victim of circumstances beyond their control.
They are not in the driver’s seat of their destiny. They are stuck
in neutral, pressing down on the gas pedal of their energy, hearing the
engine of their efforts roar and yet… they aren’t getting anywhere.
Then blame sets in and of course they are never at the business end of their
own accusatory finger. So, what’s up with that? Does this sound like
you? What is it that drives you to continue investing energy in a set of
habits and behaviors that are not working for you?
You need to get in the right gear at the right time in the right direction
to move your life (business or personal), your team (goals, projects,
communication) toward the bar you've set. Whether you’re a leader
and/or manager responsible for a team, you may find yourself in need of
an objective partner who can bring unbiased observation, guidance and
challenge to you; someone who will celebrate your accomplishments and
support you through those times when you miss the mark. You may be a successful
person who is looking to get to the next level of development in your
career and want help from outside the company for which you work. There
are many areas of your life that a coach can be of vital service to you.
Let’s discuss where you are and where you want to go!
My name is Karla Robertson. I possess over 20 years in the corporate
arena where I learned from people and experiences that had an impact
on the way in which I operate in my business. I consider myself
fortunate to have created successes as well as learned from those
times I fell short of my intended goal. I am a certified administrator
of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Steps I and II and am a
graduate of the Core Essentials Program of Corporate Coach University.
Currently, I am pursuing my Master Coach Certification with Corporate
Coach University. I earned my BS degree in Marketing and Psychology
and am active as a fund raiser and wish grantor for Make-A-Wish
Foundation of Monmouth County. I have over a decade of successful
sales accomplishments which include leading the country in sales
for 6 years and winning various awards for these accomplishments.
I have authored articles for industry newspapers and facilitated
team workshops for large organizations. I have built a private practice
along with a corporate client base and enjoy the challenge and energy
of both large and small organizations as well as individual clients.
Beginning January 20, 2004 I will be hosting my own on-line radio
talk show, The ExcelerationZone!sm from 3-4pm EST at
I’m very excited to be able to reach more people and have
an exciting and useful interaction with my guests and callers. Taking
all that I have learned through education, on-the-job achievement
and living my dream, I decided in 1999 that the next place for me
to go was to turn around and be in service to those people who were
striving to attain their vision of success. I made a commitment
to help them see what is so great about themselves, where their
strengths are and build on that to create the results they sought.
My goal is to guide people in self-discovery to uncover not only
what talents they have but also what are the barriers that are standing
in the way of their progress. Shifting Gearssm was created to provide coaching and consulting services to
people who are ready to shift from where they are to where they
want to be. So I have one question…
Are you ready to step into the driver’s seat of your life or do
you want to be a passenger relying on other people and events to determine
your course? If your answer is "Yes, I'm ready to shift gears,"
now and let’s get started on finding your ExcelerationZone!sm
The ExcelerationZone!sm is on
hiatus at this time. I invite you to listen to any of my archived
shows which you can find by simply going to the Talk Show button,
clicking on Schedule of Shows and then just click on the show
you're interested in. You will need RealOne Player to get the
voice stream. It will load automatically.
