Kim simplifies leadership into three simple steps anyone can take at every level of the organization: Do. Think. Be. Do what you want the people around you to do. Think the way you want the people on your team to think. Be the kind of person you want the people in your circle to be. When you've done that; you're being a leader.

Happily EverAfter Isn't Just For Fairy Tales
How to Have a Career, Have a Family and GET A LIFE! Who says life's no fairy tale? Almost Everyone! It's time we women get real- because the reality is that most of us have a career, and a family, but we don't have much of a life!

If this isn't the life you dreamed about at age 7, then grab your glass slippers and let's change it!
Talk Like A Man, Listen Like A Woman
How to Communicate Effectively with the Opposite Sex. Men are not hairy women. Women are not men in miniature! Men and Women have different needs and different communication styles in the workplace.

How to Master In-Person Networking- And not Just "Follow, Friend or Like" Someone. "Networking has become a buzzword that many of us have a love/hate relationship with.

But the most valuable and effective networking comes from "face-to-face-shake-my-hand" interaction. Kim will teach you how to start relationships right and then keep them going. Her innovative ideas are easy to implement, simple to remember, and meet one common goal: help you grow your network of professional and personal connections.
