Working with Kara Hardin was a transformative experience for our team at Uber. From her group training sessions to her one-on-one consults, Kara was able to drive a shared understanding of mental health and its impact on performance amongst our team, all delivered in a fun and engaging way.
If you care about the health of you and your team, and you work in a start-up or high-growth organization, you have to work with Kara. Her thinking is transforming the way we understand mental health at work. She tackles serious ideas with actionable practices, take-aways, much-needed warmth, and lots of humour. I can’t recommend her work with The Practice Lab enough.
Kara is on my speed dial for many good reasons. I trust her. She is a committed coach who we have seen help many people through challenging times and knows when to connect them to additional resources. She is an excellent presenter and connects well with audiences. She combines her expertise on mental health and wellbeing with authentic warmth and compassion. She has a true passion for what she does and is committed to any organization she works with.
Kara brings authenticity, passion and a deep knowledge of both the legal profession and mental health to her work. She has helped me understand that mental health is a competency that we must develop at every stage of our people’s careers. In her presentation to our firm, Kara was able to successfully command the attention of a large virtual audience and make everyone feel heard. She inspired us to take action and gave us practical tips to do so. We are looking forward to having her back.
Kara is a joy to work with. She cares deeply about helping others, and brings extensive knowledge, passion, and humor to her work. Kara is an engaging presenter, able to capture and keep the attention of both large and small groups, in person or virtually. Kara has the unique ability to address sensitive topics in a caring, practical manner and create a judgment-free environment for lawyers and non-lawyers alike. She has a large fanbase at our firm, and we are always looking forward to her next session.
Kara and The Practice Lab offers programming that centers people. In our work together, I’ve seen the results of a custom course design that empowered people to understand their mental health at work and take away practical, easy, skills to implement into their lives post-workshop. TPL’s special sauce is that it combines the warmth and presence of a mental health practitioner, with techniques influenced by the health promotion field, to help create a safe catalyst for self reflection. As a former lawyer, Kara speaks the language of a high performer and provides the data to justify her calls to action. Her custom course was a fan favorite of the year.
I have had the pleasure of working with Kara since before the pandemic started and she has hosted multiple mental health training sessions at the firm. Kara is a true subject matter expert in the area of mental health and wellness. She brings a practical and pragmatic approach to her training sessions and participants leave with ideas to start implementing right away. She understands the daily demands a busy legal professional is under and is able to relate to her audience in a warm, empathetic manner.
