We start with results. Where do you want to be? What do you need to get there? We’ll consider multiple paths in order to create the changes you seek. Whether higher productivity, increased market share, higher retention of employees, or higher revenue returns, by starting with a specific goal, we’ll build a unique and customized solution for you.
Once we identify the gaps between where you are and where you want to be, Kristen Knepper Consulting will customize the training, coaching, and policy solutions you need. More than just providing answers, our team is dedicated to educating you on how to sustain the momentum and create lasting change.
Kristen Knepper is an attorney, consultant, and executive coach with over 15 years experience in creating diverse, high-performing teams. Her approach is both analytical and highly compassionate. She has been described as “straight from the heart, and backed up with a whole lot of data.”
Kristen’s eclectic professional background includes national politics, having served the White House and two United States Senators; legal practice at an international firm; over 10 years creating high-performing teams at a Fortune 500 technology company; and teaching law and human resources. She understands the human aspect of business, and which factors allow for an organization to drive forward, rather than hold back.
She’ll foster an honest dialogue, and push you beyond what you thought possible. If you’re looking for someone who allows you to play small and provides lip service, Kristen’s not your girl. But if you are looking for someone who will challenge you to step outside your comfort zone, and allow you to experience massive growth, then we should meet.
Kristen coached me through asking for a raise last summer. She helped me research my worth, pitch myself, and have the conversation that resulted in a substantial raise. Her coaching was invaluable, and I highly recommend her.
I always leave a session with Kristen feeling clear and calm. She has a special combination of practical drive and insight that make for a special blend of logical wisdom. I always appreciate her ability to break an issue down with her problem-solving brain and guide me or my team through to a new place. The team doesn’t always have a solution when we start, even though I suspect Kristen might, but we analyze the pieces until the pie comes together. Kristen is also focused, dependable and follows through, each something I’ve been finding lacking in professionals of her kind these days.
Kristen has such a real and effective approach, with a whole lot of heart! She is incredibly skilled at guiding me and asking the tough questions to help me shed the bs that gets in the way of my dreams and me kicking butt at whatever I go after. Working with and knowing her has been life-changing!!
Kristen is my go-to pro when it comes to career planning, and I have worked with her both in Leadership and Negotiation workshops as well as in individual consultations. She is not only an empowering coach but she is also an attorney so she knows her stuff when it comes to the legal framework around employment and career moves. This is what I like about her approach: she will walk you through the tough questions about yourself to “shed the bs that gets in the way” as another reviewer said, but then she will also 1. explain your rights and the rights of employers and 2. explain the employer’s point of view and motivations. This is a very thorough, mature approach to be both, confident and prepared.
After attending, Kristen Knepper’s workshops for Negotiation and Leadership I feel empowered and engaged in creating my career. Kristen’s workshops are thoughtfully presented and she attracts a kind, generous community of attendees. She has real world experience and knowledge in a variety of fields, so her perspective is diverse and relevant. She facilitates discussions well and is open to thinking about new possibilities in a collaborative way. I find myself communicating more effectively at work, owning the value of my contributions, and overall having a clearer view of my potential. I would recommend her services to anyone seeking to feel rejuvenated about career options.
Working with Kristen has enhanced my self-confidence, broadened my horizons, and exposed me to a new way of communicating to better achieve my goals. Kristen is patient, easy to talk to, and has an incredible amount of empathy. Her ability to focus on the issue at hand and very professional. Her skills and services would be an asset to anyone seeking to better him or herself whether it be in personal or professional life.
Kristen’s coaching has helped me far beyond my expectations. She is practical and direct and tells it like it is. She has helped me become more secure in my profession, see my own inherent value and has helped me advance further in my career than I believed was possible. I would recommend her services to any of my family, friends or colleagues!
