Kelli Thompson leadership executive coach for women

 

HEY!

I'M KELLI 

I'M ON A MISSION TO HELP WOMEN ADVANCE TO

THE ROOMS WHERE DECISIONS ARE MADE.

IT'S TIME TO BOOST YOUR PEACE, YOUR POTENTIAL & YOUR PAYCHECK.

in 2019 i left my 9-5 on a mission to advance women. Why?

There are more women than ever in leadership today, but there is still a gap in the rooms where most decisions are made. Yet, companies with more than 30% female executives consistently outperform those with fewer women in leadership.

 

Meanwhile, women frequently cite doubt, imposter feelings and stalling until they “feel more confident” as a key reason they aren’t applying for promotions they are capable of, remaining silent instead of sharing their ideas or making brave asks.  The confidence gap and systemic issues are expensive—they cost women (and their organizations) in their peace, their potential, and their paychecks. 

WHO IS KELLI?

Kelli is an award-winning leadership and executive coach, keynote speaker, and the critically-acclaimed author of Closing The Confidence Gap: Boost Your Peace, Your Potential & Your Paycheck. In Kelli’s two-decade career leading teams in primarily male-dominated industries, she received industry awards for her ability to build programs that cultivated the pipeline of future leaders.

 

Kelli has coached and trained thousands of women leaders to lead with more clarity and confidence through her no BS, yet highly compassionate approach. Her corporate clients rave about the insightful, engaging and practical application of her training and speaking programs.

 

Kelli holds an MBA and her thought leadership is published in Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Forbes, Business Insider, and Market Watch. Her book was named a “Must Read” by the Next Big Idea Club, an exclusive reading list curated by Malcom Gladwell, Daniel Pink, Adam Grant and Susan Cain.

WHY KELLI?

Kelli’s programs help women, and the organizations they work for, boost their peace, their potential and their paychecks. Clients consistently say that Kelli helped them to stop selling themselves short and apply for next level roles, to trust themselves to speak up and make confident decisions, and fulfill their potential in their next level of leadership.

 

For organizations, these clear and confident women leaders are retained as critical and promotable talent in the pipeline. They create teams and organizations that people want to work for because they lead in alignment with their talents and values, inspiring innovation revenue and results.
