Kelli Kolling
Leadership Coach & Facilitator


Coaching is heart work.  I have a huge sense of empathy, and I enjoy helping people get out of feeling stuck, professionally or otherwise.  I help clients connect to the bigger picture and partner with them to become more visionary and purposeful about their leadership and lives.”

Kelli Kolling became a leadership coach after experiencing coaching herself.  She appreciates the possibilities that coaching opens up and also the accountability that it brings.  To Kelli, providing the space and time to work on meaningful issues is an essential support to great leadership.  Trained in both coaching and facilitation, she helps her clients to link their own aspirations with the opportunities and challenges of their organizations.   Kelli has been trained in the “Daring Greatly” work of Brene Brown, which focuses on moving courageously beyond insecurity and fear to take meaningful actions in one’s life.  She is an excellent listener and sounding board who is ready to “go into hard topics” on the path to developing as a leader.  Kelli enjoys working with emerging leaders and has an extensive background with all levels of leadership.
