Facing a professional crisis, I was fortunate to be able to work with Kelly both individually and in a group. With her keen insight and ability to help me see my strengths and vulnerabilities, I came away from those meetings with trust in my internal wisdom and the skills needed to weather the crisis. I have since moved much farther along my career path than I had dreamed possible, and continue to work with Kelly to grow professionally and personally. My life is better for it. - Dr. B. Brown, MD

I met with Kelly Wendorf for three days of private coaching related to specific goals that I had to move forward in my life. The trusting and supportive atmosphere she created for the important work I was doing was truly incredible. I loved the creative ways in which she facilitated our communication. Kelly provided experiential learning opportunities for me that I will never forget and which continue to serve my life today (nine months later). To put it mildly, I built a new foundation for myself. Through Kelly's impeccable and gentle leadership, I grew and transformed in the most wonderful ways. - T. Waller, nurse
When engaging in deep sustainable change in your life and or work, or navigating transition (death, illness, divorce or professional change), having good company in your corner over a span of time ensures that you not only make the changes you want to make, and create the outcomes you desire, but help to build a community around yourself that will support you with this change. Long-term engagements start at a minimum of four months, with weekly sessions in person or by phone / Skype, at-home assignments, and include at least one multi-day intensive private retreat.

Kelly's nuanced approach to designing experiences of meaning, that are readily reflected upon long after the event itself, and provide team members with a common language, shared meaning is uncommonly exceptional.
