Women in Leadership

Learn to step up, stand out, and OWN IT at your next women in leadership event.

Being a leader is hard. Not only are you managing other people, but you’re also managing the voice in your head that says you can’t do it, you don’t belong here, you’ve made too many mistakes, you should just give up. Listen–I’ve been there! There is a way forward.

I speak to women leaders, both seasoned and aspiring, about the struggles we all feel. Sharing my story and experience, I help women embrace self-leadership, overcome feeling powerless over their lives and careers, become more resilient, and go after their dreams.

Check out my collection of interviews, articles, blogs, and podcasts featuring women doing what we do best–leading with heart, passion, and impact.

The Ownership Mindset

“Kerry spoke at our women in leadership sponsored event. Kerry’s story and how she delivered it left everyone inspired and better equipped to deal with challenges and opportunities.”

NANCEE RONNING, former COO at BNSF Logistics

Women in Leadership:

Destined for Success

Not only do I believe that creating an ownership mindset empowers teams, but I know that an ownership mindset benefits women, especially as they move up the ranks as entrepreneurs or in corporate leadership. As women, we face different challenges than many men who hold the same positions as we do. Should we let that stop us? Absolutely not! When we OWN IT, we can create the lives and careers of our dreams.

My keynotes and breakout sessions teach and inspire women how to think and act like an owner so they can go after opportunities and claim the titles, positions, and success that they deserve.

“When the Women of Wabtec needed a speaker for International Women’s Day, I knew we needed Kerry. By sharing her story, she helped the audience believe that there is resilience in all of us. Her keynote was exactly what our audience needed to hear!”

SARA HANKS, Senior Director, GE Transportation
