Passionate about fueling the effectiveness of teams & leaders.
As a certified leadership and team coach, Kimberley Parsons has over nineteen years serving in Fortune 500 and not-for-profit companies. She has coached leaders across various industries including the financial services, tech, education, and medical services sectors. She has often been sought out to partner with leaders on establishing leadership vision, evolving to next-level leadership, building and leading high performing teams, leading with presence, and navigating organizational tensions and cultures. She began her career as an IT professional--doing everything from delivering code, leading tech transformation projects, agile coaching, and leading people—which caused her to immerse in a world that depended on team interactions and savvy leadership. Then, Kimberley’s career was disrupted after participating in a nine-month leadership coaching program for women leaders in Tech. She started the program with the goal of becoming a better leader and came out with a desire to make “great people”—not “great code”—her ultimate deliverable. That launched her second career in talent development where she has focused on developing team effectiveness, leading and executing strategy, and maximizing talent potential. Her experiences position her to bring pragmatism and a results-focus, as well as, an emphasis on the heart and humanity, to her clients. Kimberley obtained her Leadership Coaching Certification from Georgetown University and her Team Coaching Certification from Corentus, a premier team performance coaching company. Given her start of working with technology teams to deliver big results, she focuses deeply on the power of leaders to impact team effectiveness. She serves as an adjunct faculty member teaching Team Coaching in Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership. Kimberley received an M.S. from Virginia Commonwealth University and a B.B.A from Georgia Southern University, both in Information. Additionally, she is a Certified Practitioner of the Leadership Circle Profile 360 and Leadership Culture Survey and Personalysis. Kimberley lives in Richmond, VA and when she’s not immersed in work, she enjoys finding ways to “make memories” with her husband and toddler son.
