Lead more by

doing l.e.s.s.

Make the shift

from doer to leader

Kelli Thompson
Certified Leadership Coach | MBA | Award-Winning Trainer & Speaker

STOP THE OVERWHELM & start leading with confidence

Rest. Self-care. Anti-hustle. These might feel like dirty words in corporate America today. I’m ready to challenge a culture that we buy into—a belief that feeling overworked and riding the edge of burnout means we are doing great work. I’m tired of tolerating this belief that if we’re not suffering a little bit under the weight of a packed schedule, then we aren’t working hard enough. If we want to keep women, especially working mothers, in the workforce, it’s time to find more sanity in our schedules.
