About Kari Ginsburg

Hi, I’m Kari

I’m a former teacher, event planner, human capital strategist and credentialed change management thought leader. I’m also a Professional Certified Coach.

I bring curiosity, empathy, play and transparency to my practice.

As a certified and credentialed Executive & Life Coach, I want my clients to dream bigger, to take up the space they deserve, and to speak with conviction and courage.  I ask tough questions to push my clients to be more than what comes easily, to unlock something in themselves they’re keeping hidden out of fear or because they are unable to be their own champions.

There have been times in my career– when I was a new contributor, when I was a young executive– when I forced myself to behave in a way that was inauthentic. I tried to become someone I wasn’t because I thought that would help me be successful. I allowed my voice to be made smaller and my presence a little less flashy. Women who I reached out to for support or who offered to mentor me often had an agenda.

I didn’t know how to speak up for myself or who to reach out to for nontraditional mentorship, coaching and guidance. I was afraid that by asking I would be admitting that I was an imposter, unqualified or undeserving of my achievements. And honestly, I thought someone might notice my need as weakness.

It took me a very long time to crawl out of the hole I shoved myself into and to own that I’m a less conventional than what’s “normal”. And that’s ok. In fact, it’s more than ok. When I finally breathed my authentic self into my work and my interactions, my ability to get things done exploded. I sometimes think back on those years I spent small and quiet as wasted time. It wasn’t but I can’t help but wonder what could have been. I don’t want anyone else to feel that way..
