Languages spoken

Karl-Eric believes that we all have the potential to take ownership of our lives. It is not easy; it asks us for “all we’ve got,” but it is within reach for everyone.

Karl-Eric started his career in Hong Kong, where he built a successful firm related to children’s book publishing. He later moved to Montreal. After all those years, to achieve a better equilibrium between his work and family life, he moved to the west coast. With the desire to share the fruits of his experience, in the last decade, he has also been teaching and coaching.

Our lives are made of the decisions we make every day. Some are easy, some are very hard, and many we make without even realizing it. Karl-Eric’s coaching focuses on the importance of those decisions. Countless possible reasons make us feel stuck in front of a decision. With his coaching, Karl-Eric’s clients come to have a different perspective on the challenges they face. They develop a different understanding of the possible options that lie beyond those decisions.

His coaching objective is to assist his clients in transcending the uncertainty inherent in every decision so that they rise above the obstacles they face and continue their journey.

Karl-Eric is based in Victoria, British Columbia.

Karl-Eric's Unique Style

His coaching is based on the concept that we open ourselves to a path of lifelong learning and self-improvement by accepting that the world is imperfect. The situations we face are imperfect, so are the people around us, and so are we. The decisions we make will therefore be imperfect, but that is not a problem. By accepting this, we learn to focus our attention on what is good and build on that, allowing the positive part of our lives to bloom. In doing so, we place ourselves on a path of happiness and self-realization.
