Karen Anderson believes coaching is her most significant work as an educator. She is passionate about working with leaders who are open to advancing their performance to a higher level. Leaders who “work on their work” in ways that challenge the norm, create a space for possibility, and include commitment to action motivate and inspire her as a coach.
Her dream is for every educator to have a coach; AND for every educator to “be” a Coach Leader. She wants her grandchildren to have a leader who looks for the best in all, values individual differences, and holds the highest standards and expectations for achieving one’s potential. She believes coaching has the power to transform the place we call school.
Karen has been a public school educator for over 45 years. In addition to coaching, her expertise has been facilitating groups focused on working collaboratively to discover solutions and improve processes and delivery systems. She is a national trainer and has served as an adjunct faculty member at Texas A & M University-Commerce. From 1996-2004, she served as the Executive Director of the Texas Staff Development Council and was recognized as the recipient of their Lifetime Achievement Award.
As a founding partner of Results Coaching Global (RCG), Karen serves as a seminar instructor, mentor, and coach. She has authored numerous articles including “Coaching for High Performance” and “Leadership Coaching for Principals.” As one of the co-authors of Results Coaching: The New Essential for School Leaders she was recognized as the recipient of Learning Forward’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
