"Having worked with Karl now on several different projects, I can highly recomend him when methodical unbiased problem solving, team development coaching or Collective Agreement Negotiations are required. The experience, methods and tools Karl uses, help break down the issues into a clear and concise picture, without the conflict we have had in the past. The time spent "Setting the Scene" with Karl, will greatly reduce the overall time it would normally take to work through problem solving or negotiation. Once again, I highly recommend Karl as your next business mentor, coach or facilitator."
Ian Gower. Head of Planning Engineering and Maintenance at Air New Zealand

"Air New Zealand is working towards being a more collaborative workplace. As part of this change a number of steering groups have been put in place with multiple (union/employee/employer) team members, and a number of new ways to problem solve issues have been introduced. One of these is an interest based problem solving technique. Karl was engaged to provide facilitation to enable stakeholders to work through an employment issue that had been around for some time. There are a limited number of facilitators endorsed to provide assistance with collaborative problem solving within Air New Zealand. Karl brought to the table a range of frameworks and methodologies to tussle with the issue, managed the inputs and interests of the stakeholders, resulting in a successful outcome. I would confidently re-engage Karl in the future for his facilitation abilities."

"Air New Zealand is empowering employees through collaborating to resolve problems or identify opportunities with those who are closest to the problem/opportunity .As part of this change a number of working groups have been put in place with multiple (union/employee/employer) team members. I have used Karl to facilitate problem solving sessions and collective agreement negotiations. Karl has used interest based problem solving and interest based negotiation techniques during these sessions. Karl has an energising facilitation style, he quickly judges the mood of the participants and their abilities and adjusts his facilitation style accordingly. Karl has a range of frameworks and methodologies he uses to manage the inputs and interests of the stakeholders, resulting in a successful outcome. I continue to engage Karl for his facilitation abilities and feel confident in recommending him to others."

Alexandre Medarov - Manager, Risk - Strategy, Policy and Planning,  University of Auckland

"I first met Karl when we were both working for the University of Auckland. My first experience of Karl's coaching was during his facilitation of a culture change initiative called 'Mission Vision and Values'. Using a combination of tools and the experience and knowledge of the team, Karl facilitated a process whereby the group came to the root cause of the undesirable effects we were seeing within the organisation. During the process, it created a shift in my thinking - that a logical process can be used to understand and find solutions to cultural and behavioral issues. I was hooked.

Since then we have both moved on to different challenges, but I regularly use Karl as a sounding board when I experience challenges or discomfort relating to change. His help has been extremely beneficial during my studies as I am currently completing and MBA and am experiencing changes in my beliefs and assumptions around my career. Karl has a range of communication channels at the ready, with 24x7 collaborative tools through the cloud. He is approachable and always willing to use his thinking processes to coach me, while allowing me to examine the assumptions and beliefs that may be holding me back from personal success. 

I highly recommend Karl to anyone who is looking for a effective, action oriented way to understand or change their organisation, their team or themselves. Karl's logical thinking process seeks to understand and uncover rather than to advise, and I often find that through his coaching I am learning more about what motivates myself and others."
