Karen Odelot Capdevila

Coach Up Founder & Team and Executive Certified Coach

I was born into a multicultural family in Paris to a Spanish mother and a French father.

I graduated in Business from La Sorbonne and I worked in some private and public companies before moving to Barcelona where I reinvented myself and I dedicated myself to development cooperation and international relations.

In 2006, I was an expat in the Moroccan Rif. That experience marked a major turning point in my professional life. I became aware I was not mentally prepared to meet the reality of a marvelous but very isolated area, an area clearly anchored in Berber traditions, far from the clichés spread by cities like Marrakech.

Later, I went through deep changes in my personal life. Those led me to study Coaching and to specialize in Team and Executive Coaching. I also went to Gainesville (USA) to be a Certified Practitioner of the MBTI® Step I and Step II Instruments and I studied Futuring. My recent accredited trainings in The International Profiler and International Preferences Indicator highlight my expertise focus: the interculturalism in the professional and organizational sphere.

And that is how I created the COACH UP project: a mix of my adventures, my experiences, my trainings and my passion for people and cultures
