FOUNDER, DURHAM COACHING & CONSULTING
Let’s be clear. I am HONORED to be writing a recommendation for Kathleen O’Grady. I have had the good fortune of knowing her on many levels. Teacher, mentor, client, and friend, because you can’t know Kathleen without falling in love with her.
As a student at Raleigh Coaching Academy, I witnessed this woman’s love, light, knowledge, and experience transform a room of humans who had different beliefs, backgrounds, reasons for being there, personalities, and stories over the course of the three month training. It wasn’t as though we were broken, on the contrary, but Kathleen’s gift for creating an intimate, trusting space allowed us to experience our training and our work through our own vulnerability, positioning us to experience exactly what our clients may go through as we work with them. Kathleen’s dedication to uplifting and empowering the lives of her students, clients, mentees even in her down time, when they are in need, I can compare only to the sacrifice we make for family.
As someone who has worked with her on a project on the business side of Raleigh Coaching/Raleigh Coaching Academy, Kathleen has been so much fun (& funny) to work with, even when we hit some challenges. She is highly creative, intentional, and I’ve had the good fortune to watch her push through her personal barriers as we’ve collaborated in order to manifest the most authentic product, which allowed me to see that even she has vulnerability.
From the standpoint of seeing Kathleen in many different lights…and hats, I highly recommend her whether as a Coach, a mentor, or if you are in search of a Coach training program because Kathleen is ridiculously knowledgeable, and she lives her motto of authenticity.
