I don’t like to follow in the footsteps. I like to learn from the footsteps that came before me, forge my own path. ~Shari Redstone

Merry Meet

I’m Dr. Kathryn Bingham.

Ready to live and lead vibrantly?

When we seek something more, something different, or change that sticks, we need to ask: What’s the best path from where we are to where we want to be? If we’re facing a life challenge, how do we move from fear to fierce? If you’re facing or seeking change, I’ll help you transform your dreams and intentions into reality. Clearly define desired (inspired!) outcomes. Find focus. Execute. Oh, and you can be productive without sacrificing serenity. You can live and lead vibrantly, even amidst the toughest challenges.

A key take-away involves fostering creativity, autonomy, and confidence in my staff will build a stronger environment built on trust. … Leadership isn’t about being the “problem solver,” it’s about teaching and helping others to solve their own problems.
Sarah P, President, LaDiff

Kathryn served as my supervisory coach in University of San Diego’s Leadership Coaching Program. Kathryn helped me develop skills of being present with clients, hearing what is not being said, and co-guiding a conversation where the client needs it to go. She facilitated my ability to see beyond what’s in front of me, enhancing my capacity to help clients achieve their goals. She helped me recognize that the coaching process is collaborative, powerful, and rewarding.

Some of the issues at work do not have the root cause I believed. I see a path forward now (this is huge). The program had tons of practical application of the concepts that I can take with me and start using immediately.

Triche L, COO, Caracole

I’ve known Kathryn for several years. She has been a reliable resource of knowledge and support… she assisted me in developing a plan to better know myself and those that I work with to be a more effective leader. Kathryn is a great leader, mentor, and coach.

The Executive Meeting was worth the investment with great content. Kathryn was very approachable and I loved the advance book recommendations and reviews done by our small groups.

Connie P, CEO, Affordable Design Solutions

Dr.Bingham taught me that no matter what life throws at me and regardless of what comes next, this is my story to write. She is the person you can faithfully rely on to tell you what you need to hear while supporting you through every step of developing your path.

As a communications executive, I appreciate Kathryn’s ability to translate complex concepts (i.e., financial or statistical analysis) into the language of her target audience. She draws on an array of tools, analogies, and examples that resonate with professionals of multiple disciplines. Her clear business acumen and concise interpretations make her highly credible across diverse environments.

As a coach of top talent, Kathryn focuses on developing leadership and interpersonal skills, cultural and generational sensitivities, and characteristics executives need in the current business environment. She makes sure an individual’s executive presence is not just experienced face to face, but across dimensions of global virtual engagement. Kathryn enables leaders to see and respond to stakeholder perceptions, authentically and successfully.
