"Karen has been instrumental to our organizations as we build leadership responsibility. She reads people well, works smoothly with our teams, and becomes an integral part of building skill and wisdom amongst our team members. Most importantly, Karen understands the value of an effective corporate culture and knows how to support management in developing that culture. We have worked with Karen for ten years and continue to be pleased with her insight and her manner of challenging our development.

"We have consulted with Karen Foster, Ph.D., for several years. She effectively establishes the trust needed so clients see themselves clearly in the mirror and are able to accept what they see. This self-honesty establishes a firm understanding of one’s self. From this solid foundation, leaders are able to focus on the areas that need development. We have been very satisfied with the results of this work."

Steve Olsen,
formerly President of Digital Payments Group, Fiserv, Inc.

"Our organization became acquainted with Portara Consulting in 2009 when we engaged Karen Foster to work with Executives around leadership, individually, and as a team. We have been pleased with the outcome. Her coaching has made our leadership team more effective and it has had a ripple effect across our organization."
