Job Coach and Founder Coach

Julia Karmo

I want to help you feel safe to explore places where you are currently stuck so you can move forward with more self-trust, clarity, courage and aliveness.

Coaching with me:

If you need a new strategy to decisively level up in your career, are looking for new meaning, or feel like you reached the end of the current road but can’t yet see the new one, I’d love to support you.

I have changed countries and careers (several times), went from a staff job to freelance, became a founder and juggled a demanding job with motherhood. I know that transformation can be a heavy and confusing process, and I also know that it brings rewards of new joy, courage and fulfilment on the other side.

To support you in this, I hold a safe, empathetic space into which you can bring your whole self, and I use my clear systemic thinking and tools to help you discover fresh perspectives and uncover insights. I am also a certified conflict mediator and a former journalist, so I can help you navigate your challenges in expressing yourself as you develop your pitches and communication strategies.

  • I have been a journalist for 20 years and reported from more than 20 countries. 

  • I directed a documentary about people who were at the centre of the Chornobyl disaster. This taught me a lot about how people make meaning in their lives.

  • I co-founded a non-profit newsroom in Berlin because I saw how the topic of migration was reported too negatively. I successfully fundraised, developed partners and persuaded great people to join my team.

  • I have been a meditator for 10 years now, I am a certified mindfulness teacher and a student of Zen Buddhism. Insights from this practice help me in my work.

  • I have to spend at least a week a year exploring an entirely new place and my goal is to do this more every year. And I also want to write a book about new ways of resolving conflicts.
