Hi, I’m Coach Ken...and this is what I know...

about-ken

I know leaders have the responsibility to create a workplace where their team members believe they have the opportunity to be successful and grow.

I know that this work environment is difficult to achieve. I know many people are resentful and resigned to few possibilities. I know people want to be enthusiastic and appreciated.

I know that leaders shape their workplace through their actions and conversations. Leaders are accountable for the consequences of their actions and inactions; intended and unintended consequences.

I know leaders must look inward first if they are to become masterful. They must understand their personality style, blind spots, and strengths. They must learn to be mindful of how they perceive the world and how they “show up” in the world.

Memorable leaders embody a clear purpose that is greater than themselves.

My purpose: I help leaders create and achieve their visions.

I Base My Coaching Practice On These Beliefs

Being who you want to be is a skill you can learn.

Our bodies, emotions and language seek congruence. If we consciously shift one, the other two will follow.

Our personalities and motivations are a unique manifestation of our culture, our DNA, and our experiences. All these are in the past.

Our passion is found by discovering what we truly care about. From our cares, we have conversations and create commitments for action.

Everything we do is in the present moment. The more present we are to the present moment, the more capable we are to respond thoughtfully, not react impulsively.

We cannot change the past. We can change our interpretation of the past.

The two conversations which will determine your life are the ones you have with others and the one you have with yourself.

People read other people like books. Give them the book you want them to read.

We are never not in an emotion. Our emotions color our observations and influence our actions. Emotional agility can be learned so we can navigate to the emotion that will influence the action we want.

The second step is to practice change until you become the change you want. The first step is to give yourself permission to practice the change.
