Leadership Coaching

Uman Resource Associates has a record of accomplishment helping senior executives and mid-level managers learn additional skills to optimize business performance and organization effectiveness as well as navigate leadership, relationship, and communications challenges.


Kari has been a leadership coach since the late 1990's when she was asked by an attorney to work with CEOs who had been accused of sexual harassment and/or creating a hostile work environment. Kari became known in the legal and coaching community for this work and was asked to join Executive Coaching & Consulting Associates (ECCA) because of this unique coaching service. Kari began to diversify her coaching and by 2002 Kari realized that she needed a framework, tools, and methods for her work. She attended the Georgetown University Leadership Coaching Certificate Program and in 2006 received her Associate Certified Coaching (ACC) designation. After years of providing coaching to a wide range or clients, Kari received her Professional Certified Coach (PCC) designation in 2017.


Kari continues to increase her coaching skills and is currently taking a 7-month course with Dr. David Drake, whose work on Narrative Coaching changes the relationship between the coach and client.

Women 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.
