Leaders & Management

As women, we are faced with many competing demands on our time and energy. Many of us try to do it all, juggling business with family and trying to have some semblance of a social life.

Did you know?

We are at risk of a “she-cession” with many talented, brilliant women choosing to leave the workforce completely.

Female entrepreneurs report feelings of uncertainty and inadequacy, fatigue and muscle tension depressed mood and feelings of overwhelm with far greater frequency than male entrepreneurs.

I believe we are at a pivotal time in history to change and improve the way we work and the way we lead. The time to learn how to be an anchor in your business and your life is now.

You are not alone. I started my first business over 18 years ago as a solopreneur with very young children at home.

The myths I told myself:

I can’t afford to ask for help or to hire anyone. I tried to learn everything I needed to.

I was embarrassed to admit that sometimes I didn’t know what I was doing. I felt my staff depended on me for the answers.

I thought the more hours I put in the more successful I would be. I would often share how busy I was working late into the night and on weekends. The truth was I was tired, short fused and debating whether it was worth it.

I have ridden the wave of burnout many times over the past 18 years and I have promised to do everything I can to support other women to continue to build their goals and dreams over the long term while living the life they craved.

What I know now:

One of the best ways to get “more time in our days” by connecting and utilizing the time and talents of others.

Building great communication skills is one of the most valuable skills we can have in business and in our personal lives.

Effective communication is something we can learn.

Effective communication doesn’t come easily for many of us (and we are often the last to know when our skills aren’t up to par.)

Entrepreneurship and parenting have been the two greatest opportunities I have had to develop self-awareness and to shine light on the blind spots I had in my own communication patterns. In this course we will focus on the business side but the techniques I share will likely be helpful in your personal life as well.

Anchored Leadership is different that other “business or personal development” workshops. In this intensive training you will be guided step by step through a five-week process.

We will combine research, the theory of leadership with stories from my experience in building two businesses over 18 years (the good, bad and UGLY!) along with clear take away strategies that you can implement right away.

What you will come away with:

You will be able to define the core values of your business and how these values connect with building your teams and serving your clients.

You will dive deep into your own patterns and know how to move from reacting to consciously responding when faced with challenges.

You will learn simple strategies to apply when having tough conversations around unmet expectations or bad behaviour.

You will learn how people are motivated and inspired. This helps to build balanced teams that get things done, feel good about their work and feel connected.

You will feel more comfortable setting your priorities for time, tasks and delegating. This is where you get your life back.

You will build skills and strategies for resilience for yourself, your team and those you care about.

You will connect with other amazing women who are on this journey too.

The investment and the details:

Sessions will be recorded and available in a private Facebook group following each week if you are not able to attend live.

We will have a live q&a session each week in the private Facebook group. Members can submit questions throughout the week.

The full 5-week session is only $497 plus GST


Here is what our clients are saying:

I have had the pleasure of working with Kari both personally and professionally. I am continued to be amazed by Kari’s knowledge and her ability to connect with both kids and parents! I have learned so many practical skills and get very excited at every opportunity we have for her to present. She has made such a difference in my personal and professional life and I cannot thank her enough for all of her hard work!

Robyn O’Connell

An AMAZING workshop! Everyone could benefit from immersing themselves in this material around trauma. What stuck with me was ‘to make an impact on someone, especially a child, there needs to be a strong connection, stability and safety. Correction won’t happen unless there is trust and hope.

Christine - Family School Enhancement Counsellor

Every time I go and listen to Kari talk I am blown away with all the knowledge. Learning about kids who “flip their lid” and understanding the behaviours has moved mountains in my household. The last course I went to was “Be The Anchor.” I actually went twice and both times I take something else out of it to better myself and my kids. Thank you so much Kari.

Holly Maier - Parent

I attended the highly informative, engaging, and inspiring Be the Anchor workshop put on by Kari Lotzien. As a parent, there are many questions on a day-to-day basis that we encounter, including the classic, “Am I doing this right?” The workshop provided me a little confidence, and more importantly, the tools to understand that I need to be there for my child in the way he needs. The world of parenting is tough, but Lotzien, in her comedic relief and informative manner, made me realize that we are not alone in that feeling. Walking away from the presentation I felt supported and refreshed. I would recommend this workshop to any parent.

Jessica Jones - Parent

Overall, extremely pleased with your session today. Lots of ideas shared that I can bring into my classroom and it got me reflecting on my own attitudes and beliefs. I appreciate your REAL suggestions and solutions and all the resources shared. Thank you for your wisdom. You were terrific!

Jen M. - Teacher

Kari is SO easy to listen to. As a kindergarten teacher, I always come away with REAL ideas I can use tomorrow. Great stories and a good sense of humour all add up to an extremely worthwhile day.

Wenda D. - Kindergarten Teacher

I loved the stories and link to real life experiences! I wrote so many notes and hardly even doodled! That tells you how engaged I was!

Ashley - Kindergarten Teacher

You were a breath of fresh air! No fluff, just simple strategies that we can all use and what ALL educators need to hear.

Corey - Teacher

Kari is a mass of compassionate, caring knowledge. I love her approach and attitude.
