I am a sociologist, communicator and a coach. That means I love working with groups, understanding how they connect and influence each other. I have spent most of my life helping brands, companies and families communicate, express themselves and find connections with their people.
Coaching allows me to help companies, individuals and families connect better, communicate authentically and grow.
I am also a wife, mom and step-mom, an entrepreneur and consultant.
I have won international awards, lead multi-cultural teams in more than 20 countries and created business impact that changed those organisations fundamentally. I have also failed, chosen the wrong partners, felt stuck and out of control. That’s the amazing classroom called life.
My top 5 Gallup Strengths are Responsibility | Achiever | Futuristic | Activator | Connectedness.
This means I am a coach that takes personal responsibility for what we have set out to achieve and will not rest until I feel we have completed it. My futuristic strength gives me the ability to visualise the end state, the potential you have and to help others see it too. My activator strength means I am quick to get started on new things and enjoy finding innovative new solutions. Connectedness gives me the skill of not only being able to connect to people but also to see the connections between ideas, strategies and how we all engage as a greater whole.
On a more personal note, after experiencing divorce as a child, and as an adult I have worked through the experience of being a single mom, a step mom and a wife in a blended family; I am passionate about working with people who are struggling with the effects of divorce and recovering from it. My husband, Jed, and I are facilitators of two different 13 week courses, DivorceCare and Single&Parenting. Contact me for more details.
What my clients say...
"I thought that I had worked through everything in my life, that I am clean and ready to face the world. That was until I started my journey with Keli. Wow, what a shock it was to discover that I still have so much to discover about myself. But what an amazing journey it is so far. Keli has a way of opening you up to yourself, she helps you see yourself for who you truly are, without judging yourself, and if you do it is in a loving way. I am in awe for how I am feeling at this present moment and what she has helped me to accomplish in the form of my confidence, the way I see people and interact with others. Also in what I have accomplished so far in the form of my business and in writing my book. Every step with Keli is exciting, and knowledgeable. I would recommend anybody to spend time with Keli in a session."
