I’m Karen Schmidt, the frontline leadership expert 

I want to start a grass roots change to the way we develop frontline leaders so they can go from surviving to thriving and help their organisations to grow.


Having authored 5 books and worked with over 20 industries in 8 countries, the people I meet tell me that most leadership development programs they’ve tried don’t work. I have a process that does.

My Practical Leadership Development model will show you how to design a strategy that will increase the return on investment for your frontline leadership development budget.

My coaching based programs help frontline leaders develop the skills they need to boost their performance, which leads to improved team productivity giving senior leaders peace of mind.

If you need a down to earth, practical approach to leadership development contact me to discuss how I can help to grow your managers into leaders.
