Testimonials For Illumination Coaching LLC

  • The past year with Kirsten as my executive coach has been one of the most transformative experiences of my career. She didn't allow me to fall back into my normal comfort zone and only exercise the business muscles I had always used. Rather, she led with courage and compassion and helped me develop other muscles I rarely used.

    Charles Haeuptle Channel Sales Manager, Columbia Sportswear
  • As a leader trying to find my poise and confidence, I gravitated toward Kirsten’s polished communication and confident style. She asked me the hard questions to get to the root cause of my self-doubt, held me accountable to my goals, and shared strategies to help me navigate through my vulnerabilities. I can’t recommend Kirsten enough!

    Katrien Stai Account Operations and Analytics Manager, Columbia Sportswear
  • I engaged Illumination Coaching to facilitate an all-day team building offsite. Kirsten helped us to acknowledge and celebrate our wins, build personal commitments to our team, and have difficult conversations about conflict. Her confident and professional approach allowed people to feel safe and encouraged them to speak their truth.

    Autumn Woods Former Sr. Global Manager, Learning and Development, Columbia Sportswear
  • Using the Everything DiSC® tools have assisted our employees in creating a common language, providing more individual self-awareness, and understanding around co-workers that were previously challenging to work with. We've seen communication improve within teams and departments, reduced conflict, and better working relationships.

    Nancy Maichel Senior Program Manager, Leadership Development, First Tech Federal Credit Union
  • Illumination Coaching has helped us to develop the leadership skill of understanding different personality styles and the keys to communicating amongst them. This has helped our managers when having crucial conversations, addressing dysfunctional team dynamics, and have tools to be more effective with senior leadership.

  • Everything DiSC© Workplace

    The Everything DiSC© Workplace learning experience will increase team members' understanding of the different work styles on their team and help them to work more effectively together. The Everything DiSC© Workplace helps to:

    -Discover your own DiSC© style (preferences and priorities)
    -Understand other styles
    -Build more effective relationships
    -Learn how to communicate with and flex into other styles
    -Create more team cohesiveness and effectiveness


    Intro to Everything DiSC
  • Everything DiSC© Work of Leaders

    The Everything DiSC© Work of Leaders profile 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 these 18 critical 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™ Team Development

    The Five Behaviors™ is the only team development solution that empowers individuals through self-discovery and constructive behavior modeling to rewrite the traditional rules of teamwork. The Five Behaviors™ experience combines the framework of Patrick Lencioni's model for teamwork with personalized insights (Everything DiSC or All Types/MBTI) to create powerful, customized, and authentic team development solutions that empower individuals to make lasting change:

    ∙ Powerful, proven model
    ∙ Human approach to team development
    ∙ Innovative assessment
    ∙ Rich, personalized learning experience
    ∙ Tools for continued learning

    The program can be customized to meet the needs and desired outcomes of your team and be facilitated in one day, three full days, or six half days.

  • Everything DiSC© Productive Conflict

    Everything DiSC© Productive Conflict helps learners improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors. Rather than focus on a step-by-step process for conflict resolution, Everything DiSC© Productive Conflict provides learners with techniques to identify destructive behaviors and effectively reframe the situation. With highly personalized content, the workshop features an exploration of DiSC© in a conflict context, provides an opportunity for participants to explore their destructive conflict responses, and offers learners a method for making more productive choices in their response to conflict.
