Emotional intelligence is the ability to use emotion to increase your own and others’ success.

Professional background

Several years ago, Ken abandoned his quest to be the smartest person in the room and  switched his focus to making each room he is in smarter. Ken’s working assumption is that all work involving more than one person will be coordinated via conversation, but only certain conversations coordinate work. Observing his own clients, he noticed that intelligent, well intended, and adequately resourced teams often fail to produce the outcomes they are charged with. He determined that the source of the problem was a lack of ”conversational competence” – they had not learned the skills to hold the right conversation at the right time with the right people about the right topic which would lead to the right outcome. He’s been helping clients build that collective capacity ever since.

Coaching expertise

Ken’s main focus is helping his clients to discover, hone, and integrate the multiple intelligences that are available to each of us. Learning how to access and effectively use social, emotional, and relational intelligences is not a panacea for all our workplace ailments, but it does go a long way towards creating the kind of milieu where people feel valued and appreciated and where they can do their best work.

Ken has worked extensively with women and people of color on inclusion efforts to cultivate dignity, justice, and belonging, and the creation of brave (not safe) work spaces where hard truths can be heard and worked through for greater understanding and alignment.
