About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
Through one-on-one coaching, I help leaders:
- Meet their organization's goals more efficiently by simplifying and prioritizing
- Clarify the work they, as the leader, are best suited to do
- Train and develop their team members to more fully own the rest
- Confidently deliver performance feedback in ways that strengthen trust
- Unify their teams around a focused set of big rocks

Through group coaching and facilitation, I help leadership teams:
- Rally together to address internal and external challenges as a united front
- Develop stronger skills for working through disagreements productively
- Clarify their most important priorities and strengthen linkages across functions
- Address interpersonal divisions head on, naming the elephants in the room with empathy and compassion (and perhaps even humor)
- Improve culture and performance across the organization
Why would someone choose to work with you?
In my words...
- I've worked in/with a diverse set of leaders and teams across nonprofit, school district, and private sector settings
- As a nonprofit leader, I've grown teams; managed complex staffing, budgeting, and contracting challenges; and shaped organizational strategy
- I am committed to ongoing antiracist learning and action
- I can help you use the principles of adult learning theory to develop staff in ways that actually stick
- I will bring compassion, humor, and deep listening to every interaction
- I will help you simplify and focus amidst an overwhelming set of demands

In my clients' words...
-"Working with Kim gave me the time and space to explore management and leadership challenges, reflect on past decisions and explore future ones, and have a sounding board to develop my voice and confidence as a leader. Kim is compassionate, insightful, and a joy to work with--working with her has been one of the most fruitful professional development opportunities of my career!" (Vice President)

-"Kim [has been] instrumental in significantly improving the internal functioning of our organization this year. Kim is an excellent facilitator - she did an excellent job facilitating a retreat for our staff to internalize and contribute to our strategic plan, and she skillfully mediated a delicate situation between a supervisor and a direct-report." (Executive Director)
