Our Purpose

Welcome! My name is Dr. Karyn, and I’m the Founder &  CEO of DK Leadership. Our purpose as an organization is to help people reach their full potential!

Over the past 20 years, my team and I have successfully coached hundreds of organizations around the world. We’ve taught Fortune 500 companies, governments, non-profits, educational organizations and family businesses how to achieve their goals. We’ve also worked with hundreds of families to help them with their relationships, confidence, emotional goals and career direction.

Whether we’re working with organizations or families, our expertise is in driving success through Emotional Intelligence. We do this by offering customized coaching and online training programs.

We call our unique approach Success Intelligence – because it’s one of the best ways for our clients to reach their goals, improve cultures and increase their performance.

If you have studied research on Emotional Intelligence, you know that it is the key ingredient for driving full engagement. But if you are like most people, you’re still not sure about:

  • What it is, (we teach this!)
  • How it impacts performance, (this too!)
  • How to measure it, (yes, we do this)
  • Or most importantly – how to build it!

This is what we are great at!

No matter what your definition of success may be, Success Intelligence is our key method to help you reach it.
