Our Name

Nebo is named after a hidden lake in the Adirondack Mountains. 

Our name refers to a lake visited by founder Kate Ebner during childhood summers. This pristine natural setting gave Kate a sense of connection and inspiration that felt like home to her. Today the name inspires us to help all people connect with their greatest potential resourcefulness and sense of inner peace.  

We've learned that each of us has our own "nebo" — a place that brings out the best in us. We show people how to find that place without having to go there.

nebo (Slavic Languages) means "sky; a little piece of heaven."

Our Story

Founded in 2004 by change leader, organizational strategist and executive coach, Kate Ebner, The Nebo Company is a growing leadership development business based in Washington, D.C. Kate's keen awareness of the challenges and opportunities that face leaders at the top — along with her belief that leaders need partners, not just resources and support — have enabled her development of a forward-thinking model for working with leaders at all levels.

At Nebo, Kate has developed a talented team of coaches, facilitators and strategists who leverage extensive firsthand experience in guiding change in corporations, educational institutions, non-profits, government, associations and organizations focused on social change. This first-hand knowledge, combined with a solid understanding of the success factors critical to effective leadership, is what distinguishes The Nebo Company.

An executive mom herself, Kate has brought her insights about meeting the dual challenges of work and parenthood to serve women in leadership through the MOMreturns program and other Nebo for Women offerings. She walks the talk when it comes to women's leadership and has established cutting edge programs and methodologies for supporting women's career and life success.  

Today, Nebo serves clients across sectors, bringing expertise in leadership coaching and organizational development consulting. We demystify the process of creating and leading from an inspiring vision. We are committed to working with people who want to make a positive difference for the future.
