Meet Karin Lindner

Karin is the founder and owner of Karico International Inc. She has found her calling and her true passion in helping individuals and manufacturing companies to become the best they can be.

An author, corporate coach and reputed keynote speaker, Karin enjoys working with leadership teams to increase their personal and organizational effectiveness by fully engaging the energy, talent and intelligence of the workforce.

With more than 25 years of international corporate experience, Karin has acquired the knowledge and developed the tools to make a positive impact on her clients’ lives.

Karin is a passionate promoter of the manufacturing industry. She is determined to help people discover the sexiness of the manufacturing industry – an industry that is critical to the wealth and prosperity of any country.

She firmly believes that Respect for Humanity is the key to long-term success in this new manufacturing era. Karin has developed a keen understanding of organizational behaviours and values and the impact these can have on the bottom line. This has served her well in acting as a champion for change in a variety of manufacturing environments.

Karin has served on the SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) Toronto Chapter Executive Team and has written articles for numerous media publications on the manufacturing industry. As an active member of Toastmasters International for the past 12 years, she has provided leadership and support to the Toastmasters community as Area Governor in Richmond Hill for the 2013/14 term.

Karin used to be a part-time faculty member at Sheridan College and taught “The Impact of Culture on the Canadian Workplace” as well as “Communication” at the Faculty of Science and Technology. In 2015 Karin had to make the difficult decision to leave the College. Since then she has put her entire focus on supporting management in manufacturing companies to get the people process right.

Karin knows what it means to go the distance for her clients. In her spare time she likes to compete in marathons and long-distance triathlons. In June 2014 she raced at Ironman Austria. Ironman is the toughest 1-day endurance event in the world. She managed to complete the 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike ride and 42.2. km run in 12 hours and 29 minutes. She demands the most of herself and believes there are many similarities between sports and business. From personal experience, she knows that most amateur athletes strive for their PB (personal best). Why not encourage the people in their work environments to do the same?
