Happy Clients Say…

The clients I work with are all high-achievers, committed to success in every aspect of their lives: professional, personal, civic and spiritual.

But even high achievers need guidance and support.

The clients I work with include:

  1. CEO’sHighly successful leaders of both companies and non-profits across the globe who struggle to manage the demands on their time, and their professional(board of directors, management, shareholders) and personal (spouse, children, friends) relationships. or achieve life/work balance.
  2. EntrepreneursBoth serial and first-time entrepreneurs who have the same challenges found with CEO’s but who also have the added stress of bringing innovation to the marketplace.
  3. Individuals and Families of Influence Both self-made and inheritors who struggle to manage the complexities that come with wealth and power.

During the last seven years, I have had the privilege, pleasure, and sometimes much-needed challenge of working with Timothy Karsten.  Throughout this time, I have come to deeply appreciate Timothy’s keen ability to help me uncover what matters most in a given situation, and then hold me accountable to being my best self.  He has also skillfully and successfully performed a similar role with members of our leadership team and my family. Because of my work with Timothy, my life and the lives of many whom I care about has been greatly enhanced.

Finding an executive coach that is a good match can be challenging. It can be even harder for a foreign expat. Timothy has been a tough but warm-hearted guide and facilitator for me over the past six years. His experience and knowledge in international business affairs and cross-culture issues allow him to understand the context and provide valuable strategy insights for success even thousands of miles away.

Timothy and I worked together formally for several years and he changed my life. Period. As someone who has led an influential financial services organization for 10 years, I didn’t want pep talks or a stair-step formula for how to be a better person. I needed an extraordinarily gifted listener. I also needed someone who could help me blast through deep-rooted patterns in my thinking and behavior.  Timothy did this, with big-time results on both the personal and the professional sides of my life. If you want to go deep, that is what you will get. I can’t recommend Timothy more highly.

President and CEO
RSF Social Finance

Timothy Karsten has served our family for many years. In this time, we have brought on a new team of wealth advisors, enhanced our philanthropic mission, and achieved greater impact and success in our investments. In addition, this work has served to bring our family together when before we were divided.

The Taylor Family

We found ourselves in the lucky position of a windfall in our finances. We were concerned that without a plan, we would blow through it in short order and sought advice from all quarters. Timothy stepped up with advice and guidance that we follow today. In our case, we are cowboys, artists, ex-Aspenites, and Irish. We possess all the bad stereotypical traits that are attached to those terms. Timothy Karsten managed to sort through those influences with care, sensitivity, understanding, and patience. We were also able to tap into Timothy’s network of advisors that served our goals well. We are certain they can do the same for anyone. Timothy Karsten is a great advisor with the ability to listen, ask the right questions, and support others to do what is best for them. It’s a unique gift and talent and we are forever grateful!”

Timothy brings a distinct capacity for grounded truthfulness. In our work together I have consistently benefited from his fierce grace holding me accountable to a high level of integrity. Out of his embodied silence emerges heartfelt and thoughtful guidance that illuminates next steps and serves as a catalyst for crucial inquiries. I honestly can’t imagine how I would have navigated some very difficult business and personal situations without Timothy walking along side me and providing counsel.
