Kari Uman has more than 25 years’ experience helping individuals and organizations identify and reinforce behaviors that support achieving their goals and identify and develop alternatives to behaviors that impede achieving them. She has more than twenty-five years’ experience working with individuals and teams in federal agencies, private sector companies, universities, not-for-profit organizations, and the intelligence community. She has worked with leaders and teams helping them evaluate their own behaviors, identify, and understand the impact of these behaviors on the organization, increase their emotional intelligence, and, when needed, learn new behaviors that are more productive for the successful performance of their role and the accomplishment of the organization’s mission.
Kari’s ideal clients are female leaders transitioning to new positions with increased presence, political savvy, and confidence to be more effective leaders. She helps her clients:
- Develop the skills of self-observation and then self-reflection;
- Explore the myths and beliefs that are undermining their effectiveness
- Increase their awareness of self-limiting behaviors and attitudes;
- Create a more positive personal and professional presence; and
- Develop both behaviors and strategies that enhance their success.
Kari’s focus is on gender issues, and their impact on relationships and performance, enabling her to help individuals change behaviors that are undermining their best efforts.
