Female Leaders

With expertise on gender issues and their impact on relationships and performance, Kari’s passion is helping newly promoted women make the transition to their new position with increased confidence, presence, and the political savvy to achieve results.


To accomplish this, Kari helps women leaders:

  • become aware of self-limiting behaviors and attitudes;
  • create a more positive self image;
  • explore the myths and beliefs that are undermining their effectiveness; and
  • develop new behaviors, habits and strategies that enhance their success and make them stronger, better leaders.


As a result of coaching:
