Wake Up Your Spirit
Karen Beals, ACC, CPCC
Life & Leadership Coach

Life leads us down different paths and directions;  you get to choose the path that will have your heart sing.  

You cannot change others; you can change yourself and how you respond to others.
"The tenacity of the human spirit is courageous and beautiful."  Karen Beals, Life and Leadership Coach

My Journey as a Life and Leadership Coach began with my own story...

I lost a sister suddenly and unexpectedly in a car accident – her 3 month old was also in the car and sustained permanent, severe brain damage, blindness and paralysis.

I'm the parent of a beautiful young woman (I made it through the teen years....that's bonus points), and I have been through a divorce.

I'm a recovering people pleaser and know first hand the costs of saying 'yes' when I should have said 'no'.  Afraid of conflict?   Yep.  BEEN there.
Over the years, I have benefited tremendously from therapy (personal and couples), experiential groups and the 12 step fellowships.  I continue to do my own work.

Coaching was the next step. I experienced the transformative power of coaching ... and so I do this
because "it works if you work it".   It's my way of giving back.

Coaching has transformed my life. Let me help you transform yours!!

My Background

I am an Associate Certified Coach through the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and received my initial coach training through the Coaches Training Institute. In 2012, I completed Marion Franklin’s (Master Certified Coach) 12-week Laser Coaching Class. In 2014, I took the "Essentials of Coaching" through the "Professional Christian Coaching Institute" (PCCI) and  PCCI's "Cross Cultural Coaching" course.   I have been coached by Therese Kienast, MCC and  members of her team, as well as received coaching with Susan Valdiserri, an outstanding Professional Certified Coach and facilitator for Coaches Training Institute.  

I currently am an internal coach at Tuthill Corporation, a family-owned manufacturing corporation with approximately 900 employees globally, where I serve on the Vision Cultivation Team.  I am also a facilitator for our Leadership retreats.

The ICF defines coaching as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”


My Coaching Goal & Promise

My mission is to help you succeed. 

I am not an intellectual. If you are looking for someone who can go head to head with you...I am NOT your coach. If, however, you want transparency, authenticity, humor, heart and someone who will create a safe space for you, then I AM your coach. 

  • I will not give you the answers...because you already have the answers. You just need to discover them.
  • I will help you believe in yourself.
  • I will be a stand for you and your life.
  • I will invite you to start saying "YES" to your life and "NO" to whatever is getting in the way.
  • I will walk beside you.
