Elevating Collective Potential:
With Power & Grace

I am probably a lot like you—striving to achieve optimal results with the least amount of energy. This principle guided me during my engineering career and has remained my focus over the past three decades in leadership and team development.

Optimal results require bringing together people with differing perspectives, priorities, and personalities. The creative tension is stimulating and engaging!

However, this creative tension can devolve into resistance, causing people to either withdraw or overpower one another. Such resistance drains energy.

The essence of my work is to guide individuals and teams to transform resistance and conflict into momentum.

This transformation unleashes a wealth of creative energy, all while maintaining honor and building trust.

Hi! I am Karen Valencic

One of the greatest rewards of my work is watching resistance melt away — and seeing the “ahhh…yes!” happen — when people experience the magic of Spiral Impact!

Spiral Impact® is a methodology for transforming resistance into positive movement grounded in the the martial art Aikido, the Japanese Art of Reconciliation.

When I first saw Aikido in action, it changed my world forever. Aikido is a radically different martial art, relying on position, not force. Realizing the impact these concepts had on everyday life, I swapped my engineering career to teach people how they can shift discord into honorable-innovative solutions in their work and life.

​Three decades, thousands of professionals, and one bestselling book later, Spiral Impact® is a game-changer in conflict mastery. Blending Aikido wisdom with physics, it's your toolkit for collaborative solutions and positive change.

​Connect with me and we can Spiral Forward to Success!

TESTIMONIALS

TESTIMONIALS

“Because we have chosen a staff that has a diversity of profiles, attitudes and strengths, sometimes they find it hard to collaborate, and will resist one another, or fall into the negatives of gossip, projections and judgments that separate. Karen helped us learn to make our conflicts creative and keep things flowing even when differences arise. She is a support for a higher level of operating as a team.”
Puja Dhyan Parsons, CEO
Growing Spaces LLC

Does This Sound Like You?

  • Do you feel like...you and others hold back ideas because others may disagree or are uncomfortable with how to share?
  • Does it seem...your team is going in different directions? 
  • Are you frustrated that... competing priorities and differing perspectives, and personalities prevent your team your best performance?
  • And when it comes down to it, do you wish you had more excitement, freedom, and connection in your work?
