Do these career obstacles sound familiar?

Organizational politics, lack of networks, feeling stuck and unfortunately so much more. If so, you're not alone.

Hi, I'm Kristin Harper

Author. Speaker. Coach.

I know what it takes for employees to succeed. With 20 years in Corporate America, I went from college intern to Global Vice President of a Fortune 15 company in my 30s. I've interviewed hundreds of candidates, hired countless employees, and participated in talent discussions, often as the only African American, and one of few women in the room. What I'm most proud of, though, is helping dozens of employees and clients gets promoted and achieve to new levels of success, especially women and people of color. I'd love to help you, too!
