Norah Kennedy Orangeville, Ontario
Leadership Coach, Executive Coach
Values Based Leadership Graduate Certificate
Throughout my almost 3 decades in not for profit organizations, I have held the belief that how I work and how I lead, will ultimately make a difference – to the people who work for and with me, and to the communities and people we serve. With that in mind, I have worked to ground my leadership in my personal values of compassion, fairness and integrity – and in the joy of learning new concepts that deepen my understanding of the work I do.
As a Leadership Coach, I am equally committed to making a difference in the lives and leadership of those I coach. I aspire to work with individuals who are as committed as I am to evolving their leadership, however they define it; who are passionate about grounding their leadership in positive core values that contribute to the common good.
Through values based coaching, developing leaders learn to understand how their personal values play out in their leadership. By integrating their values into their everyday leadership approaches, they will see their workplace cultures evolve to be more engaged, more positive and more vibrant.
I bring to my coaching the learnings from all my successes and all my failures of 20+ years of senior leadership experience. I hold Graduate Certificates in Values Based Leadership and Executive Coaching from Royal Roads University and am a Certified Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT) Practitioner with the renowned Barrett Values Centre.
An International Coaching Federation credentialed coach with an ACC designation, I am committed to continuous personal learning and exploration, so that coaching with me can be a highly personalized, energizing and rewarding experience.
Norah has a gentle way of moving me forward and bringing out wisdom I didn't know I had. She gives me space to think out loud, and asks questions to help me get clarity to reach conclusions. Norah does this in a way that builds my confidence, deepens my thinking, and increases possibility and success. Norah's passion and talent for coaching is a gift for which I am truly grateful to receive.Elaine Capes
