Meet the Author

After a twenty-year career with energy companies ARCO Oil and Gas and Ashland Oil, where she focused on organization and talent development, including coaching and development programs that impacted the senior leadership of the companies, and multi-cultural training for expatriate staff, as well as skills training for local staff in China and Indonesia, for the last seventeen years Dr. Karen Otazo Hofmeister has been a no-holds-barred, dynamic thinking partner and executive coach for executives in the US, Asia, China, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, Europe, Singapore and Japan.

Karen has a doctorate in Human Resources Development and two degrees in Linguistics. Languages and their effect on the way we think first attracted her to multi-cultural work and have been a mainstay of her unique talents for impacting individuals working in different cultures. As a consequence, she has both lived and worked in Europe in London, The Hague, and Paris, in Asia in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and New Delhi. Her consulting work has covered many more countries. She speaks English, Spanish, French, Indonesian, and Chinese.

Dr. Otazo Hofmeister is currently committed to taking an active role in non-profit, NGO, organizations. Her local focus is on empowering immigrant women in Texas to start their own businesses. For Houston-based, 100 year-old, Neighborhood Centers, Karen is working on an online publication in Spanish as well as their capital campaign.
