Meet Leadership Coach For Executives, Karen Benoy

Karen Benoy is on a journey to uncover and integrate her authentic self. That journey—and the effortlessness that follows living in alignment with your values—inspired Karen to lead others as a transformational leadership coach for executives. Meet your coach, Karen.

How did you start your journey as a transformational leadership coach for executives?

After being in the insurance industry for 17 years, it was time for a change. I thought about my values and knew right away that I wanted to certify as a professional coach. I wanted to leverage my strong intuition and empathy to impact the world in a way that would create the kind of cohesion that makes successful teams win.

What was the impetus or tipping point for your awareness of conscious choice?

My nephew died when he was 12 years old, as a result of injuries he sustained in an accident. I watched my sister-in-law experience a truly powerful process of enlightenment during the healing from this tragedy. In my observation and oftentimes support of her, as we endured this traumatic experience for our family, I started to peel back some of my old beliefs in a way that transformed me, as well. The most profound discovery was that we are so fearful of dying that we don’t know how to live. And, that if we can quiet the fear enough, we can hear the Universal Truths as well as our own truth… that we are all in existence to love and be loved.

What are your top 3 values and why? How do you live those values (or try to) every day?

My top 3 values are Connectedness, Communication, and Love.

Connectedness
I live by this daily as I make a point to connect to my higher power, the universe’s power, and the connections of everything and everyone around me. As an empath, I can deeply connect to the vibrational currents from every source of energy.

Communication
I live by this daily as I believe this is how I tap into my soul/essence. How I express myself through thoughts, feelings, and actions. How well tapped into my soul can determine whether I am catalyzing from fear or from the truth and this has a direct impact on how well I communicate with myself and others.

What is the hardest conditioned pattern you’ve had to overcome (or are working to overcome) as a woman/professional?

The hardest conditioned pattern that I struggle with is my intellectual arrogance. I was brought up in a male-dominated environment where women were not given much of a voice. And, if you did have the floor to speak, you’d better make damn sure you know what the hell you are talking about. My father’s famous line is “better to be thought ignorant than to open up your mouth and leave out all doubt”. This created the strong perfectionistic know-it-all in me and instilled that if I am not perfect and right all the time, then I am not worthy.

What is your favorite part of what you do as a leadership coach for executives?

My favorite part of what I do is when a client has an Ah-Ha moment that has such a profound impact that when they come back for the next session they can’t say enough about how it’s changed their life.

What is your mantra or phrase for this part of your journey in life?

My mantra is “With Compassion and Curiosity we can Create all that we need to overcome any and all of our challenges”.

What is some advice that has really helped you and who shared it?

The most helpful advice I’ve found is from Shirzad Chamine on learning how to quiet the saboteurs and execute the sage perspective. It’s been life-changing for me and for my clients. Also, Bruce Schneider helped me discover how fear is often at the root of our values and when we peel back those fears then our truths can be revealed.

What impact do you hope to have on the world with your work as a coach?

I want to help executives and organizations create systemic team cohesion and healthy and sustainable cultures. The more we can help people find their truths the more cohesive our world can become.

How do you spend your days?

As a transformational leadership coach for executives, I spend my days transforming amazing leaders from all industries at all levels. When not coaching, I love being at the beach, walking my dog, biking, hiking, and spending time with my 3 beautiful daughters, the love of my life, Mike, and many of my wonderful friends.

“When I started working with Karen, I expected to come out with some tools and tips related to prioritization and decisiveness. What I left with was a life-altering change of perspective based on a challenging and intense analysis of my personal principles and values. With her kind and empathetic coaching style, Karen helped me find the root cause of many of the professional (and personal) challenges I have faced and helped me develop an approach to addressing these that I most likely would not have found on my own. Thanks to Karen, not only am I now equipped to manage the challenges I currently face, but I also have great confidence in my ability to face and adapt to any new challenges based on the foundational understanding of my own values that Karen has helped me recognize and articulate.”

“The bTrue™ Values process opened up significant learning for me which led to possibilities that I had not previously considered. The depth of this process and the personal, transformational work that it spurs are unique to any other tool that I have encountered in my more than 20 years of experience in this space. The outcome of this work for me led to clarity in aligning the next step in my work with values that truly are at the core of who I am. That clarity is like a beacon that keeps my actions aligned and decision-making easier. In times like we have recently experienced, when everything seems to be up in the air, this clarity is a gift that anchors me every day regardless of what is going on around me. If you are looking for that clarity in your work or personal life, I recommend you give yourself the gift of time and internal work with the bTrue™ Values assessment.”

“Karen is a gifted leadership, business, and life coach. As a part of our coaching relationship, she introduced me to her tool, bTrue™ Values Assessment… Through the process, Karen invited me into the challenge of truly seeking to understand what I’m holding on to because of past experiences and who I truly am and how to more authentically show up in that way. I feel like another level of myself has been unlocked that I can put into play in all areas of my life.”
