I am a certified executive development and career coach and offer a wider range of professional coaching and leadership development services.
I can help you with topics like
- Career management, from getting a promotion to changing companies or completely reinventing yourself
- Strengths and skills analysis
- Advancing your leadership skills
- Productivity, time management, decision making and ending procrastination
- Developing and nurturing working relationships (networking)
- Communicating more effectively
- Increasing confidence
- Stress reduction and resilience
Every client is different – and so are my coaching programmes. I take great care in getting to know you, understanding your world, your challenges and your ambitions before designing a coaching programme tailored to your specific needs.
The programmes differ in length depending on the topic but many consist of six to ten 60 to 90 minute sessions, held at a mutually convenient venue or online via Zoom over a period of several months.
Coaching will help you develop better self-awareness and effectiveness in every aspect. You’ll get deeper insights into your current situation, enabling you to set your future direction and reach your goals. Throughout the process, you will develop concrete and practical skills and strategies which you can put into action straight away.
How does it work:
There are several ways to get the ball rolling. Simply drop me a note to arrange for a free consultation call. Alternatively, you can also book a slot directly through our booking system on www.liebfrog.uk/contact.
During this initial conversation, we explore your current situation and your coaching goals. You will hear more about myself and how I work and can ask any questions you might have prior to making a decision.
If you decide to go ahead we will schedule the first session during which we talk in more depth about your situation and ambitions. We define measurable coaching goals so you can track your progress.
Throughout the coaching, I support you as you work towards your goals by providing you with a tailor-made coaching programme. This can involve self-reflection, the development of new practices and habits, and trying out new strategies and tools. After all, the most important aspect of coaching is putting learnings into action and practise new skills in ‘real-life’.
I coach in English and German.

Supreet Oberoi, entrepreneur
I have made excellent progress towards my coaching goal. Karin was the tonic that I needed to kick-start my dormant potential. The sessions kept me on-track as I knew that I was accountable to someone within a short time frame. Karin took a real interest in me and my situation and made me feel she cared if I succeeded. Some of the homework was quite tough! All of it very useful, tailored to my needs and helped me work out where I wanted to go. And although we had a tight schedule to fit in a lot of work, Karin didn’t make me feel pressured in any way. My overall rating of my coaching experience 5 out of 5.
Lynne Haddow, career coaching client
Karin is a wonderful coach – highly experienced, professional, empathetic and with a real talent for understanding you and helping you get to the crux of an issue quickly and with great warmth. I really enjoyed our sessions together. Karin keeps you focused while gently challenging you and supports you all the way. I would definitely recommend Karin to anyone looking for a coach to help them navigate a job change or indeed career change.
Mark Hanly, change management expert
Karin's holistic approach and warm, smart personality have meant that in a short time I'm already amazed by the breadth and depth of ways her coaching is impacting my life. I thought I was approaching her about a work issue, but her calm, caring manner quickly drew out the ways this was related to some much more deep-rooted beliefs and behaviours. I've found the insights she makes thought provoking - she's also got a wonderful sense of humour which helps when thinking about tougher issues! The practices she suggests have been rewarding, enjoyably varied, and creative.
As a result, in work contexts I've been amazed how quickly people have noticed improvements way beyond the issues I originally approached her about. My personal relationships are also now much calmer and happier. She is a wonderful person and I can't recommend her highly enough! Emily Oliver, Sustainability Consultant
Karin is a wonderful coach who has mastered the fine art of active listening. Her style is both supportive and stretches a person to achieve more than their comfort zone. The exercises are both insightful and liberating and are designed perfectly for the challenges at that particular point in time for the person. I am now more confident in my approach, more focused in my purpose and create more value for my key stakeholders. I feel truly blessed to have been coached by Karin, thank you once again for all your help & support over the past 6 months. Kush Kanodia, Social Entrepreneur
Working with Karin has helped me see why I am stuck and has directed that insight into something positive. She is very easy to talk to and I felt I could share every irk whether work or personal. After each session I felt rejuvenated and ready to address what I hadn’t been able to see before. The tasks set were not too taxing but cleverly revealing, and have made me see my views and values in a new light. I have found working with her incredibly helpful and beneficial.
