Hi, my name's Nathalie and I’m a Director with the Queensland Government. For the past 25 years I have invested heavily in my professional education and development but what I was missing was the insights and soft skills to enable me to confidently present my recommendations to senior management. At times this has been frustrating as I could see the path forward but was unable to convince my departmental leaders that my recommendations could achieve results. The coaching sessions provided the insights into my personality and the emotional intelligence uplift that I needed to help me become a more skilled negotiator and presenter. In particular by working through real-life challenges with my coach I was able to quickly achieve new results both within my team and also with the business units that I work with. This has been truly rewarding and has led to a new optimism in my work and my ambitions for the long-term. I am grateful that the close relationship I developed with my coach allowed me to be truly open and honest about what I was facing and how best to tackle it. Thank you Karen for all your help and insights.

I chose Karen to work with me as I felt that she would understand my challenges and not only provide great tips and information during our sessions, but also provide the background information to help me understand why I might be feeling the way I was and what I could do to make change…and I wasn’t disappointed. Karen was open, receptive, warm and supportive whilst providing me with new skills and knowledge to learn how to more effectively manage challenging conversations, organise my intelligence to present strategically and to tap into my EQ to build and maintain relationships. I’ve had many years in senior positions managing people and was initially not sure of what value Karen’s coaching could add. I have to say SO MUCH!! I would highly recommend Karen to anyone wanting to move to the next step in their awareness and understanding of their EQ and how to further enhance their strategic thinking!

Karen inspired me and gave me the tools to feel like I could conquer difficult situations. She was a perfect coach for me, kind and validated my concerns. She gave me solutions on how to move forward positively whilst staying true to myself. She was a delight. It was life changing.

I couldn’t recommend Karen Muggleton and People Alignment more highly. Karen has made such a big difference to my management style (and my life). I have always thought of myself as not a people person but with some guidance, some changes in approach and mindful responses, my teams and I are more engaged, I am getting positive feedback and we are kicking goals for our business. Its been a very positive experience.

Karen was fantastic, she was open, approachable and wise, creating a safe space for our coaching sessions without judgement. She has a natural ability and talent to tap into people. For me to be able to have met Karen has been an absolute pleasure, as a part of my journey. I feel really lucky.

I am a current coachee of Karen Muggleton. I have benefitted enormously from Karen’s coaching, wisdom and support. Being self-employed can be a very lonely existence but in working with Karen I feel that I always have someone on my side.
Karen’s coaching is built not just on some outstanding qualifications and experience but much more importantly on being able to readily connect with people. I think she is able to do this by asking lots of great questions which leads to a deep understanding of their needs and wants. In addition, I feel that Karen is able to empathise with people because of her own life and career experiences.
Each coaching session (they always start and end on time which is so important for busy professionals) begins with the question “what do you want to get out of this session?” So many coaches “tell” rather than “ask”. Not Karen. This simple question not just respects what I as a coachee want (rather than what Karen thinks I might want to discuss), but it also really focuses my brain on maximising our coaching time together.
Uppermost in Karen’s coaching style is ensuring that individuals are performing at their optimal level by developing in them a strong sense of wellbeing. Karen uses a number of simple but highly effective tools to do this including mindfulness and gratitudes. Each technique has science behind it and a very practical application.
Karen keeps me accountable, has coached me to achieve some encouraging results and is never too busy for me to bounce ideas off her in between sessions.

Karen’s coaching has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. It has not only benefitted myself, but also my team, peers, managers and family. I have a greater understanding of myself now because of it. I have learnt when I function best and how important it is to look after myself. This has allowed me to have more energy to do great things, more clarity to make sound decisions and more confidence to inspire and lead my team.
One of the greatest successes I’ve seen within my department is the positive impact Karen’s coaching has had on improving the relationships within my team. This resulted in more open communication and team work which has created greater efficiencies and a harmonious working environment. What I like most about Karen’s approach is she lays down the foundation to get things started, then provides you with the tools to self-manage, but always makes times to answer any questions along the way.
