Tenure Trackers


As a tenure tracker you have taken the next leap in your academic career. This is a position where you cannot stay for a long time as an Assistant Professor before you need to take the hurdle to the next level to become an Associate Professor.

It is a rewarding time because you know that you have achieved a lot to get on to this career path and yet being a tenure tracker can be accompanied by certain challenges and the pressure to perform outstandingly or to leave academia.

"I highly recommend being coached by Karen. Our sessions were constructive and thoughtful, while also being fun. Karen created an open and safe environment where I felt at ease to fully address my challenges. With her background as a scientist in the university system, she gave me the tools to create lasting positive changes in my professional and personal life. She also guided me to the Positive Intelligence model, a phenomenal program to meet my internal saboteurs and start handling challenges through positive emotions. It has been a life changing experience, thank you Karen!" Ghislaine Vantomme, Assistant Professor
