Project Description

Karim H. Ismail is the founder of BlueprintPal Inc., a peak performance coaching and team mentoring program focused on self-leadership. Individuals learn to think, plan & act differently. In doing so, they unlock their potential, achieve breakthrough personal and work results, and learn to sustain change. Ultimately, they are happier personally, which contributes to a successful team and organization.

The unique self-leadership approach provides the Framework, Attitudes, Skills and Tools that result in Clarity and Confidence: the two pre-cursors to success.

He is the author of Keep Any Promise: a blueprint for designing your future, based on the thinking, tools and techniques he developed over 20 years of managing multi-million dollar architecturally unique buildings and five years of personal search. He applied this thinking to fuel his own dramatic personal transformation after his personal life was completely out of balance and hit rock bottom in 2002/2003, despite huge corporate success. His renewal included climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro less than two years after not being able to walk to the end of his driveway.

His core beliefs are:

  1. There is tremendous, limitless opportunity for growth and expansion. The only barrier to growth is us;
  2. The faster we want to move in life, the more regularly we must slow down completely to pause, reflect and recharge;
  3. It is possible to live every day in flow if we manage our energy carefully. We can feel continually connected, peaceful, stress free and happy, like children do;
  4. Learning to embrace fear and how to replace obstacles with smart solutions is at the root of achieving success.
