Operational Excellence is not a Skill.

It’s an Attitude.

Mental Fitness leads to Organizational Fitness

TOGETHER for manufacturing with a proven training methodology and an
exceptional follow-up process in order to get to next-level thinking.

You have Challenges. We have Solutions.

Resistance to Change

Resistance to Change

What can change? The goals, teams, playing field, roles, materials, strategies, time constraints, processes, systems, expectations, management, customers, suppliers … in short, what can’t change? Leaders today have to fully grasp what people go through emotionally, in order to make change sustainable. Will having the right tools help you to professionally guide your team during even turbulent times of change?

High Turnover

High Turnover

Everything we do in life and at work starts with people. Our reputation for dealing with them follows us everywhere. If we don’t get the basics of human interaction right, we don’t even have to bother with bigger ambitions. More clients, larger facilities, a greater ROI… These goals can only be achieved if people are mentally engaged and productive. How do you stay one step ahead of your competition?

High Absenteeism

High Absenteeism

If people don’t come to work, there is a reason. It’s often not a sickness at home; it’s an unhealthy work environment. Walk around and observe how people interact, and what emotions you read on their faces. If they’re negative, short with others, easily frustrated or completely silent, people are “phoning it in,” in more than one way.  How keen are you to get the people process right?

Health & Safety Concerns

Health & Safety Concerns

How often do you find yourself realizing that people on the shop floor possess more talent, skill and creativity than they are currently required (or allowed) to demonstrate? When people are engaged, they take responsibility for their actions and become far more mindful. This leads to a demonstrable reduction in health and safety concerns, violations and claims. Are you primed to raise the bar?

Quality Issues

Quality Issues

Why isn’t quality everyone’s business? The manufacturing industry is all about being faster, lowering costs, reducing scrap and building a high-quality product for the best possible price. That is a big challenge, particularly as the need to do more with less has become the norm. There are so many mentally creative steps that can be taken to improve quality. Where are improvement opportunities for you right now?  

Problems versus Solutions

Problems versus Solutions

Can it be that the way we look at problems is the problem? Thinking and speaking about problems day after day takes a toll on people’s mental and physical health. You have to have a strategy focusing on fresh solutions, not rehashing stale problems. When a growth mindset is fostered, people think, feel and act differently.  Can we support you and your team in developing a new mindset?

Negativity

Negativity

Far too many people live in the World of “W”: wishing, whining and wasting everyone’s time. The worst part is that negativity is like a disease; doesn’t one bad apple spoil the whole bunch? Without even being conscious of it, the “W” dwellers find a problem for every solution. They’re oblivious to their own mental attitude. How do you think negativity and frustration impact the bottom line?  

Entitlement

Entitlement

Society today seems to be all about instant gratification. Knowledge is at our fingertips with Google; buying anything we want is but a click away. We buy and don’t save. We text and don’t talk. We feel entitled to whatever we want, immediately. The one thing we cannot summon without effort is long-lasting, meaningful relationships. Are you interested in discovering a new and refreshing approach?

Complacency and Mediocrity

Complacency and Mediocrity

A lack of understanding of human nature – what makes people tick – prevents many owners and managers from tapping into their people’s potential. When people feel undervalued or bored, they feel stagnant and become complacent. Once dysfunction sets into a business culture, it becomes very difficult to excel – for the business and for the people. Are you accepting or rejecting the status quo?

  • Karin Lindner's book was launched into the Mexican market at just the right time.

    This book encourages the reader to develop a different thought process and shines a light on people who are, in fact, the essence of our business success. As Managers, we have to start being curious about the people around us and learn how to keep our emotions in check. With Karin’s help in my executive coaching sessions, I have managed to become noticeably better in my abilities as a leader. It’s all about listening to people’s input and involving them in our day-to-day business challenges.

  • Karin is a very determined individual.

    Karin is a very determined individual and a good role model for the people who have the privilege to work with her. I have learned to appreciate Karin because she is an example of how a person can succeed under less than ideal conditions. She is mentally strong and believes that mental strength is a leadership competency that anyone can develop. 

    - Lucian Maduta Plant Manager, KIRCHHOFF Automotive
  • I'm glad that we chose to work with Karin.

    Karin’s positivity and her focus on people is like a breath of fresh air, which definitely has had an impact on the business and the way we look at things. We saw almost immediate results by observing people from different departments who, after the training, started to interact with each other in a more positive and engaging way. This will help us to break down unnecessary communication barriers. Our team leaders have gained self-confidence and become more solution- and outcome-oriented.

  • Karin and her team have the passion for leadership training.

    Marwood International has engaged Karico several times to help our associates to reach the next level. Karin and her team are dedicated to serving the people in manufacturing environments. They have a deep understanding of the industry's challenges. I was highly impressed that Karico was able to gain the trust from some of the most difficult folks, and have a profound impact on team building and change management.

    - Naomi Hazell VP of Business Development, Marwood International Inc. 
  • I'd like to thank Karin for everything she has done for our company.

    There have been noticeable changes in many members of our team since the training through Karico. The people show more initiative and have more direct communication. There is a renewed sense of responsibility and accountability amongst team members, and we have an overall stronger team dynamic. I truly appreciate Karin’s daily emails as they always hit the nail on the head.

  • Karin's coaching has made me a better Manager and Leader.

    I consider Karin Lindner to be a “believer,” a fighter and a mentor who has the best interest of people in mind. At the beginning, I was hesitant about enrolling into one-on-one leadership coaching sessions, but pretty soon I started to recognize the value. The coaching has helped me to become more confident and to believe in myself. It has made me a better Manager and Leader. The people in our plant connect better with each other and it has become a more joyful work environment. Training, as well as Coaching, is important to establish change for the better and it benefits both management and the employees.
