Our focus is entirely â€˜people developmentâ€™ driven. We work with individuals, teams and entire organisations to help them address specific challenges, drive improvement and growth.
Our approach is tailored to each client; however, we have an extensive resource centre of programs, seminars and publications to draw upon.
We have worked with local and state government; small, medium and large companies and NFP organisations to bring about cultural change through coaching, training and developing their people. We coach, train and educate to support the learning and development objectives of our clients.
We are passionate about the role mentoring plays in professional development, for both the mentor and mentee. So we develop and manage tailored mentoring programs for member associations and large organisations.
Our principal consultant is Dr Karina Butera, who has three decades of experience in people-oriented roles. Karina spent the first decade of her career in corporate roles in sales, recruitment and management consulting.
Her intrinsic interest in human behaviour, motivation and relationship building drove her to learn all she could in sociology, psychology, philosophy and gender studies, resulting in her winning many academic awards and scholarships and gaining her PhD in 2008.
Alongside her university studies she became a qualified professional coach, eventually attaining Master Coach Accreditation. In 2003 she set up her first business, Project Balance, which specialised in Corporate Wellbeing. Once developed, she sold the business and established her consultancy in 2006. Additionally Karina has founded and been part of the founding executive committees on several professional membership associations.
Due to her attention to detail and delivering quality outcomes over and above the expectations of her clients, Karina has become a highly respected leader within her profession. She was awarded the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Coachingâ€™s â€œCoach of the Yearâ€ award in 2012 and was a finalist in the Australian Institute of Training and Development's 2020 "L&D Professional of the Year" award. Karina has had dozens of articles published in academic and industry journals; and has been called on for her professional opinion in articles, on national television and radio.
The Karina Butera Consulting values are: Achievement, Prudence, Positivity and Integrity.
