Yes, we accept credit card payments, as well as business checks.
Yes, the LEADS! Executive Success System™ really works; if you commit to doing the learning and applying the leadership and organization development principles.
Take comfort …based on all of the clients we have served, and what we know to be possible for you to be an effective leader, we can’t imagine why you would be the only leader that Poimena’s signature programs and tried and true system, LEADS! Executive Success System™, wouldn’t work for. There is no reason you would be the one exception.
All personalities are welcome at Poimena. There isn’t a personality we can not work with. However, our trainings and programs do not work for professional women who make excuses, blame others, talk about being a victim of their circumstances, and complain of not having any money to invest in themselves.
Additionally, we don’t work well with individuals or teams with the mindset:
- Primarily concerned with what might to wrong and what won’t work
- Focus on the risks of new proposals rather than the potential of rewards
- Believes that life has a limited amount of opportunity to go around
- Are concerned with “getting their fair share at all times
- Won’t make investments that don’t show an immediate return
First, we are unique through organization as we assess ministries at three levels: individual, team, and organization. What does this mean to you? We review your ministry holistically beyond individual leadership roles.
Second, Poimena Consulting is different through the solutions offered are for Faith-Based Women Leaders, who serve in ministry. Traditional programs focus on the models and principles of leadership. However, Karlyn and her team signature leadership, team, and organization design programs are based on a biblical worldview; the Word of God. All of Poimena Consulting’s programs empower FAITH-BASED WOMEN LEADERS with strategy, tools, resources, and experiences that work in ministry.
Finally, as the leader of Poimena Consulting, Karlyn’s knowledge, competency, and experience are uniquely different than any leadership development and organization effectiveness consultant. Her values include: Godly character, commitment, faithfulness, trust, and leadership.
Leadership ability is determined upon a leader’s effectiveness. If you don’t know how to lead effectively, there will be a limited on your success. You personally determine your effectiveness by allowing yourself to learn, grow, and apply all that is required to experience successful and profitable results.
For example on a scale of 1 to 10, if you choose a 5 level of leadership effectiveness, then your team and organization will be a 3 or 4. Not much success there. However, if you choose to learn, apply and grow to a 9 or 10, then your team / organization will be a 9 or 10 in success and profitability. The sooner you realize the measure of your success determines the level of success for your team / organization, the sooner you can guarantee yourself to an effective leader in record time.
The guarantee is effective leadership in record time is entirely up to YOU.
This is a great question. If I was you, I would want to know our track record too.
. . .
Poimena’s consultants and Karlyn have great experience with working with corporations, small business, and non-profit organizations. Through the SHE LEADS! Strategically Success SystemTM we have successful addressed various challenges from building to leading to sustaining successful, profitable teams.
. . .
With over 20 years of corporate experience in management, along with consulting experience, Karlyn D. Henderson, M.A. brings to the table a rich experience of organizational leadership, as well as, high level facilitation and coaching skills to make each Poimena Consulting signature program an unique experience. Miss Henderson is currently pursing an Associate Coaching Certification (ACC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Additionally, Minister Henderson has served in ministry for over 25 years in various capacities of service to the Lord including a licensed Minister, New Members Class Leader and Teacher, and Singles Ministry, and Evangelistic Outreach. Currently, Karlyn serves as Church Administrator at Word In Seasons Ministry Family and Life Center in Norfolk, Virginia, under the leadership of Pastor Diana Elston.
Honestly, you only can answer this question.
Realistically, you can expect real results in 30 to 60 days in Poimena’s trainings and programs. Or course, this timeframe depends upon you following the program, taking it seriously, and doing the work and assignments that are put in front of you.
It’s more than reasonable to expect to achieve leadership success, teamwork, and increase revenue for your team / organization in record time.
There are several ways we can work together.
Poimena offers 1-on-1 executive and leadership coaching programs for WOMEN LEADERS who seek an exclusive experience. Additionally, Poimena provides group executive and leadership coaching programs in a confidential, non-competitive environment where WOMEN LEADERS can candidly discuss both personal concerns and leadership challenges in ways they would not feel comfortable doing in mixed-gender program.
Our two formats are conducted live and virtually. Our coaching programs have a combination of live and virtual events. Specifically, you will gain exclusive access to an online membership site for updates, forums, and training videos/mp3.
As Poimena Consulting newest client, we welcome you to help you soar to new level of greatness in building, leading and substaning a successful, profitable team. Get started NOW with the Leadership Breakthrough Strategy Consultation to take another step in your leadership journey.
Ah, we respect that your time is valuable. Thus, we value your interest in wanting to invest in yourself as a leader.
The average commitment for Poimena’s programs is from 1 to potentially 2 hours a week. However, this average varies depending upon your ability to understand, retain, and apply the leadership and team development strategies.
Developing any skill and applying new knowledge requires time and commitment. Each program contains various modules to aid in learning information at a reasonable pace.
In order to excel, you need to put in coherent and rigorous thinking. Consider this as an investment. If done properly, you will save much more time than you put in.

Poimena Consulting is committed to proactive consultancy and believes clients should be covered by a performance guarantee because we want you to be 100% satisfied with any product or service we provide.
. . .
Our service is 100% performance-based. If you are not satisfied we reserve the right to better the situation and outcome for up to three months (90 days). If after that time, you are still not satisfied, for any reason, you may receive a full refund. Administrative costs, shipping, and handling are non-refundable.
. . .

. . .
We ask that if you do submit a refund request in writing and that you return any materials via US mail sent to you via mail.
. . .

. . .
Make the most of your time here and have the experience of a lifetime.
This is a valid question. I’m glad you want to know the answer to the vital question.
A couple things. First, Poimena’s trainings and programs start where most other leadership and team development programs don’t starts – we help you discover who you are as a leader through our Discovery Zone phase. During this phase, you will have the opportunity to develop self-awareness of your strengths, motivations, values, capabilities, and attitudes (and so much more). Hey cannot lead until you lead yourself.. . . . . .
. .. . . . .
Next, we are different through the solution we offer: L.E.A.D.S.! Strategy and Success System™. Traditional programs focus on the models and principles of leadership. Poimena signature programs, including L.E.A.D.S.! Executive Mastery Program, I Own My POWER! and The TeamWorks Experience are the next evolution, a new and fresh look at leadership and personal development for LEADERS that truly drive results and performance, while being self-aware of how to interact with your team. All of Poimena’s signature programs empower LEADERS with strategy, tools, resources, and experiences that work in the real world.
Awesome! We’re so excited you’re ready to get started with Poimena Consulting.
First things first, to ensure a good fit for your selected program and trainings, we highly recommend you begin with the POWER Strategy Consultation.
Well if you have made it this far and are STILL reading, it is highly probable that WE would make a great team as we partner together to help you realize your desires to build, lead, and sustain a successful and profitable team.

Hold on! Are you ready to pay the high cost of doing nothing?
. . .
There is an enormous potential for organizations to improve their bottom lines by developing leaders who inspire people to perform at higher levels and who can recognize and remove obstacles to increase team productivity. In fact, research shows that good leaders can DOUBLE profits.
. . .
Cofounder of McBassi & Company discovered and proved that organizations whose leaders eliminate barriers, provide feedback, inspire confidence, share information, and welcome new ideas outperform those that don’t.
. . .
What ’s possible with better leadership via Poimena trainings and programs?
. . .
- Increase individual and team performance
- Reduced employee turnover
- Increased customer satisfaction
Today, the need to satisfy customers, create new innovative solutions, and get the most out of every dollar is very important. By improving, expanding, and elevating your leadership capacity, you can REMOVE the unrelenting drain on financial performance that allows your organization to grow and thrive.
. . .
Are you willing to pay the high cost of doing nothing because taking no action is often the most expensive option of all.
Absolutely! Although Poimena Consulting is a boutique consultancy, be assured it works towards your favor. We are flexible in our approach, faster in our decision making process, and there is not bureaucratic loopholes that you normally experience with large consultancy agencies.
Furthermore, you will not be passed down to a junior associate who has minimal experience and serving clients.
Most important, be confident that Poimena Consulting specializes in working with FAITH-BASED WOMEN LEADERS to increase their capacity in knowledge, skills, and abilities, so YOU will become a confident, effective leader in Christ Jesus. So know we are the “experts” in our field. We are NOT a jack of all trades.
Consider Poimena programs a personal INVESTMENT, because it is. It’s an investment in your future and your ability to become an effective and great leader. No more wasting money paying for programs that aren’t worthwhile for you. Definitely no more programs that waste your time because it’s not tailored to meet the specific needs to help LEADERS succeed.
How much is it costing you now? Specifically, how much does it cost you if you DO NOT invest . . .
- Does your team work environment promotes focus, goals, or cohesivness? Or, is it one of chaos, disrespect, resentment, or lack of commitment?
- Do you have a healthy work/life balance where your role as a leader isn’t taking away quality time with family and friends?
- Does your team have a strong vision and empowering culture? Or, does your team strugges to know where they are going and what they should do because you don’t know how to set the tone and direction?
- Are you providing your team with the day-to-day direction and support they need to do their best? Or, do you struggle in knowing how to daily support your team and well as remaing productive yourself?
At Poimena, we believe in the mantra: Invest in YOURSELF.
The leadership mindset, skills, and strategies you will learn and apply in our working together is useful for a lifetime. So, the way we look at it, you can’t afford NOT to hire a coach and consultant to get directed, focused, mentored, and trained on how to build, lead, and sustain a successful, profit team/organization.
Whether that coach/consultant is Karlyn OR NOT – and we’re not saying it has to be Karlyn or the Poimena staff – we want you to realize how much money, time, and sound mind you stand to lose by staying stuck and not moving forward at this point.
You may be saying to yourself “I don’t know if I afford it”.
However, one or two of you that may be true, but for the rest of you . . . answer these questions,
- “What is it costing you not to take action?”
- “How much longer can you afford NOT to take action?”
- “How much longer can my team afford if I don’t take action?”
Taking action requires you to step out of your comfort zone and invest in yourself. You’ve weighed the monetary investment but have you calculated what it has cost you and will continue to cost you if you don’t take action? Without knowing much about you or your business, what I do know is that the cost will be much, much, more if you choose not to step up. Plus, people are usually only willing to invest as much in you as you are willing to invest in yourself.
So, let’s get started. As Poimena’s newest client, we welcome you to help you soar to new level of greatness in building, leading and substaning a successful, profitable team. Get started NOW with the Leadership Strategy Consultation to take another step in your leadership journey.
