Design The Relationship Of Your Dreams!

For High Performing Couples

Did you know that 99% of marriages have no plan to develop their marriage?  So we created the Marriage Mastermind – 
an adventurous and romantic experience
equipping high performing couples in their most important relationship!


Are You In The 7% Club?

Is your marriage living up to your dreams?

Unfortunately, research says only 7% of couples are thriving, and that is not surprising when you consider that only 1% of couples have a clear vision and strategic plan for their marriage success.

Perhaps you face similar obstacles to other high performing couples.
OR, maybe you just want to take your marriage to the next level!

What Blocks Many High Performing Couples From Thriving?

We’re soon-to-be empty nesters and don’t have a vision for our next chapter. We’ve been living parallel lives and lack connection.

We need a process, system and markers for a thriving relationship (the same way we track success for our business).

We have a lot of distractions,
and travel a lot. We feel overwhelmed and need a strategic plan to move forward!

My partner and I work together in our business – our relationship has become transactional – the romance is gone!

Most of our couple friends are struggling. We want to be coached and grow alongside other amazing couples who want to thrive.

We need tools to communicate
effectively, manage work stress and create a plan for relationship success.

 Great News – We Have An Amazing Solution!

If we have not yet been introduced, my name is Dr. Karyn Gordon.

For the last 25 years, I’ve worked with tremendous success as an international Leadership & Relationship Expert – coaching CEO’s, entrepreneurs and high performing couples to thrive at home and building engaged teams at work.  My most recent leadership book hit #2 on the Wall Street Journal and my TEDx Talk was one of the Top #10 Most-Watched (in the World!) for 2022. 

My amazing husband of 22 years (Dr. Brent Penner) and I are also business partners; together we co-founded DK Leadership: A Global Leadership Coaching Company, equipping thousands of leaders across 17 countries. We understand the complexity of building multiple successful, fast-growing businesses while raising kids AND STILL prioritizing a thriving relationship with each other!

We are in this with you!

Here is what we have learned professionally and personally…

High Performing Couples Need A Plan Or They Risk…

Living parallel lives and fearing being together as empty nesters.

Being tempted to have an affair because your needs are not being met.

Settling for a mediocre, less-than-great marriage.

Difficulty focusing on your business because of your relationship stress.

Feeling exhausted, disconnected and dis-satisfied in your marriage.

40-50% of couples divorce in their first marriage and 60% for second marriages.

If this topic is hitting a nerve, we would love to share our proven Relationship Roadmap™ with you, so you can be part of the “7% Club” of marriages that are thriving! It’s easier than you think!

Our unique ability is teaching systems and practical tools (based on leadership principles) to BOTH organizations and families.

While I’ve taught our systems to global CEO’s and couples over the last 25 years with enormous success, my husband Brent and I are thrilled to offer a unique Marriage Mastermind– as an exhilarating fun NEW way for a small group of like-minded couples to experience adventure and learn together over a 12-month period.

We’ll teach you what you need to know, and guide you through the process.

Why Do Couples LOVE The Marriage Mastermind?



You need a vision for your marriage and we’ve never thought of that. I teach churches, I teach leaders, but like, our marriage?

Those streams didn't cross, and we emerged out of the weekend with a really great first draft of a vision statement and our values, which we've never written down as a couple before. So I think that's really going to help us navigate the next few decades... Having a retreat where we talk about a vision for our marriage and values and goals was just really timely for us. We've always individually set our goals and we share them with each other, but to have shared goals for our marriage is going to be super helpful ... If you look at a lot of high performing leaders, business leaders ... the very best people have the most coaches, and they're not hesitant to invest... This experience has been so healthy, very uplifting ... and so life giving!

financially for the future, but we never really invested financially for our marriage for the future. And this was just an easy route to say, what do we have to lose? We only have a lot to gain... From this experience we have better understanding of each other and better communication. It’s been exciting to have the follow through (Monthly Coaching)... We're finding ourselves in a different stage of life and about to be empty nesters ... We feel we have a good marriage, so, it was kind of like, why do we need to do more to try to work on it? But at the same time, it can always be better, and we have always more to learn and always more to connect on and bring us together. And we want to be a good example for our children of a thriving marriage!

The way Dr. Karyn teaches is really profound! We had experienced both kids leaving the house and she asked me – what was your empty nest plan?

And I realized that I had planned for everything but had not planned for empty nest life... The Marriage Mastermind is very forward thinking, its very clear. And being with other entrepreneurs, many running businesses together, we see how normal we are. Having Dr. Brent be part of this program is incredibly important. His comments and observations were really profound – I really like how they are doing this together. Karyn is the knowledge base and Brent is the implementor – and having both of these brought together from a married couple is what makes this so unique!

I felt every single person opened up with us, they wanted to know our story ... I felt like we really were so valued, and fit in right away....

A mastermind is built of people that are ready to give to each other, and that's what we experienced. We showed up and we said, "Any way that we can give and benefit other people, we'd love to do so", and everybody else showed up with that same attitude and because of that, our marriage is leaving better and everyone else who's leaving today, their marriages are also stepping away from this with a brighter future, which is incredible. So, we're so thankful for the format of what this was, we're so thankful for Karyn and Brent for putting this on.

      Don’t Delete – Space-keeper

      I Think This Would Be Great For Our Marriage But We Have Little Time With Our Business / Traveling Commitments. What Are Your Suggestions?

      The Marriage Mastermind program is designed for high performing / business couples to help you design and achieve your marriage vision without overwhelming your schedule. The 3-day retreat is an incredible, energizing, fun and meaningful experience for couples – and the monthly coaching is just 1 hour per month (with optional additional training if you like). Each month you will learn 1 new tool – and have the month to apply it – so that the process is energizing and not overwhelming.

      Can You Quickly Summarize What We Will Be Learning?

      Over the 12 month program you will learn valuable tools and systems which will accelerate your marriage goals, reduce your stress and even create capacity for you to drive your business goals! Essentially, you will be learning our proven SI: Relationship Roadmap System™ applying strategic business principles to design and achieve your marriage vision.

      Will The Monthly Coaching Sessions Be Recorded?

      Yes! To maximize the program – we highly recommend that couples attend (if possible) the LIVE Online coaching sessions. However if you are traveling or unable to attend, you can access the recorded content at any time, even if you are traveling, working, or unable to join a particular month.

      Is This Marriage Therapy?

      No, this is a Marriage Mastermind. The couples attending have all been interviewed and are looking for a unique experience, and new tools that they can apply to their most precious relationship.

      MM Members: Who Are They?

      MM Members are incredible high performing couples (CEO’s, Senior Leaders, Entrepreneurs & Professionals) from across the USA and Canada, involved in many industries and family businesses. Some couples run companies together and others are senior leaders and professionals who are passionate to learn new tools for their relationship. Together all MM Members share a common experience – they understand the stresses of a demanding career, work travel, and raising a family, and  also have chosen to prioritize their marriage relationship.
