After more than 25 years working with organizations of all shapes and sizes, for-profit and non-profit, Kari decided to follow her passion and founded Skloot Consulting, LLC. As a professional personal coach, consultant, public speaker and author, Kari started the Life-Work Coach division of Skloot Consulting to focus on helping women flip their thinking about balance and Put Your LIFE First! This unique spin on the traditional question of balance encourages all women to keep life and work in perspective and to define their own personal success. She provides individual coaching, groups, specialized executive director coaching and speaks on myriad topics in the field.
Kari’s style is collaborative, inquisitive and, most of all, passionate! She brings a genuine and calming energy that encourages, supports, and enhances the efforts of those around her. As coach and consultant, Kari is energized by people who are passionate about themselves and about their place in the world.
In addition to personal coaching Skloot Consulting works with non-profit organizations in areas of capacity building and resource development. Kari is a public speaker providing seminars, workshops, keynotes, breakout sessions and retreats for non-profit agencies. She is also co-author of the forth-coming book Nine Lives: Stories of women who found their own paths to success.
Kari and her fabulous husband of 25 years, Rich, live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago with their brilliant and overly-athletic 15-year-old son, sweet dog, and the cat who lets them live in the house.
