"Leadership now means the willingness to build the world we wish to inhabit."
"Karlin is an engaging, knowledgeable presenter who knows how to connect with the audience. She gave a talk on 'resiliency' to a small group of multimillion-dollar women business owners and they absolutely loved the session. She's total talent and no pretension."
—Laurel Delaney, Founder, Global TradeSource, Ltd.
"Knowing several members of Karlin's team, the word I consistently hear when they describe her is 'brilliant'. Having read her book and done a small bit little work with her, I would add 'insightful, practical, and innovative' to the list."
—Jeff Hornstein, President & CEO of The Speakers Choice
“On behalf of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), I’d like to thank you for joining us to share your insights with our senior agency leaders. From the start, you demonstrated a desire to understand our agency and to translate that understanding into an Executive Leadership Seminar (ELS) that was both timely and relevant to our audience. Your program, entitled “Leading a Resilient Organization — In Every Challenge, There is an Opportunity,” was much needed during these times of sequestration, organizational changes, and challenges to do more with less. Your small-group activities and take-aways were powerful tools to enable agency leaders to learn about themselves and their own resilience during the session, and many have already requested electronic copies of the handouts to use with their teams upon returning to their offices.
You should take pride in the knowledge that your presentation has had an immediate impact on our organization from the top down, beginning with the 183 leaders who participated locally or remotely. In fact, our Deputy Executive Director for Corporate Management noted that he used your problem statement exercise on Tuesday afternoon following the training to help him with a challenge. In addition, our Acting Assistant for Operations mentioned that she has already integrated the “take-aways” into her team meetings.
Based on the 19 evaluations received to date, the feedback from this ELS has been among the best we’ve received, with an average overall satisfaction score of 4.4/5.0.
— Ben Ficks, Chief Learning Officer, OCHCO, US NRC
Karlin Sloan is a frequent speaker on Inspiring Leadership, Resilience and Change, Crisis Leadership and Leadership and Psychological Capital.
I’ve been speaking professionally since 2000 and enjoy working with audiences large and small.
I have recently been speaking about the impact of Covid-19 on leadership, and how to build psychological resilience in the face of crisis.
I am currently working remotely from my home in Melbourne, Australia and therefore only available for speaking via webcam from my home office. That hasn't stopped me yet, I'll be keynoting a virtual conference this June.
