Tell us about YOU!! Hi, I’m Karen Pambianchi and I am Certified Life Coach. I founded Swift Water Life Coach because I love helping women reduce overwhelm and stress through simple and effective routines and habits. Levering their strengths, my clients achieve their professional and personal goals, work toward their ideal work-life harmony and enjoy less stress on a day-to-day basis.
What makes you different/stand out in your industry? I get down to the nitty-gritty. While coaching always uncovers limiting beliefs, brings awareness to your mindset and behaviors, for me the power of coaching comes when it’s time to execute. I use a pragmatic and detailed oriented approach to ensure my clients are moving the dial on whatever their goal is session after session.
What do your clients love about you? My clients appreciate that I listen. Allowing my clients the time and space to think out loud and have a place to put their thoughts and feeling usually leads them right where they need to be. Listening also gives me the unique perspective to reflect back on what my clients share and that’s where the ah-ha moments happen.
What is the best advice you can share with others? Lean into your strengths. You have everything you need to accomplish your goals. When things feel overwhelming and you just don’t know what to do next – do what you do best. Lean in hard to the things that you knock out of the park and here’s the tricky part – apply those skills and qualities to the thing that’s hard. You’d be amazed how transferring your skills across parts of your life can have big changes.
How has the Women’s Business League helped you? Launching my own business was intimidating. I was reluctant to introduce my business when I introduced myself. Joining Women’s Business League gave me a safe space to practice talking about my business (and I get to do it often!) and has helped me shape that introduction. I also have met wonderful women who have helped me in my business and inspire me every day.
