Kirsten Meneghello, JD, ACC

Kirsten combines her strong leadership experience with her legal training to provide an illuminating and powerful experience for her clients. She specializes in coaching, training, and development for leaders. She has served clients in the following industries: professional services (legal, accounting, healthcare), manufacturing, outdoor apparel, consulting, and nonprofit organizations. Her knowledge and coaching skills helps her clients reach their professional goals, execute initiatives, and drive business results. She helps leaders create awareness of self and others, but always ties it back to actionable steps by focusing on outcomes and results.

Her approach helps leaders to get clarity around issues that are preventing them from maximizing their effectiveness, and results in:
• greater employee engagement
• lower turnover
• better decisions
• cost savings

Everything DiSC programs can help team members to increase their understanding of the various communication styles present on their team and help them to work more effectively together. They can also be used to sharpen leadership skills and teach best practices . Because they are adaptable tools, they can be customized for your group, individual leaders, or a small group of leaders at your organization.

  • I like how Kirsten puts the onus back on me and asks me difficult, reflective questions. It provides the basis for deep behavioral shifts, rather than quick solutions, to become a more effective leader.

    Mark M.
  • Having an unbiased person to talk through situations and challenges is so helpful. It allows me to have an open and honest dialogue. Kirsten has an exceptional skill of allowing you to be solution-oriented around the things you can control.

  • Kirsten recently facilitated an offsite workshop with my team. Her soft, confident, and professional approach allowed people to feel safe and encouraged to speak their truth. I would highly recommend Kirsten as a coach and a facilitator in working with all types of teams.

  • Everything DiSC Workplace

    Everything DiSC programs can help team members to increase their understanding of the various communication styles present on their team and help them to work more effectively together. The Everything DiSC Workplace helps you to:

    -Discover your own DiSC style (personality and communication preferences)

    -Build more effective relationships
    -Learn how to communicate with other styles
    -Create more team cohesiveness and effectiveness

  • Everything DiSC Work of Leaders

    The Work of Leaders report reveals your dominant leadership style and how it impacts your effectiveness with your team. The framework of "Vision--Alignment--Execution" is the result of a four-year research and development effort that ​analyzed and distilled the work of prominent leadership researchers. Leadership best practices were identified as a result of input from more than 300 subject-matter experts at over 150 organizations. ​Your personalized leadership assessment includes ratings on the 18 individual behaviors that impact leadership effectiveness.

  • Everything DiSC 363 Work of Leaders

    This 360º report combines the best of 360ºs with the simplicity and power of DiSC, plus three personalized strategies for improving your leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360° experience that's more productive, satisfying, and positive. Because the raters select amongst pre-defined comments, they can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that you as the leader can actually understand and implement. I have found this report to be head and shoulders above 360ºs created internally by corporations because the insights are more actionable and less painful.

  • The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Program

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To facilitate a learning experience that helps professionals and their organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. The Five Behaviors™ profile, which provides both individual and team feedback, is grounded in the model described in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, the internationally best-selling leadership fable by Patrick Lencioni. With this program, participants will learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of the model: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. Additionally, the program is powered by Everything DiSC® and All Types™, personality models that help individuals understand themselves and others better. Using their profiles, team members can create a better, stronger team.

    The program can be customized to meet the needs of your team and time constraints (one-day, three days or six half-days).
