Delivering innovative private and group coaching to empower engineering executives and managers to ACT with IMPACT.

Topic: Effective communication: Partners Not Opponents


Do you feel like you are really getting through to your team, leadership, supplier, or customer?
Wondering how to get people to actually read the beautifully crafted, comprehensive email you sent that addresses ALL their questions.
Feel like a broken record? Asking yourself if you need to say it louder? slower?
Not sure you are speaking the right "language"?

You get frustrated with communication when it isn't working. When ideas and minds don't connect, people often say it's a result of "ineffective communication". We will examine what gets in the way of great conversations and what you can do to get the ball rolling.

Owner and Coach / Action and Ease coaching

As the founder of Action & Ease Leadership Coaching, Kris helps engineering executives and managers propel themselves and their teams forward. She’s best known for her innovative, 2-part coaching program that empowers you to identify the most valuable actions to take to grow yourself, lead with ease, communicate effectively, and guide your team to reach their potential.

Kris comes to this work having trained hundreds of people across her 20+ year career in leadership roles in engineering, quality, manufacturing, and the National Ski Patrol. She holds a master’s degree in engineering management, multiple key quality and engineering certifications, and has been a member of the American Society for Quality for over a decade. In all that she does, Kris is passionate about guiding you to be able to trust yourself, reach others, and act with impact together.

When she’s not coaching leaders and their teams, you’ll find Kris skiing the snowy slopes near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her daughter and her husband, Brian. Beyond being on her skis, she finds joy in a hot fresh brewed cup of loose-leaf English breakfast tea, the opportunity to lay in her hammock with a great view, and sharing a cold Michigan microbrew with friends.

All Guests must submit their individual registrations, group registrations are not available at this time.
