Kay James

Kay spent over 25 years as a strategic and financial advisor to the health care industry, serving as a partner in an international management consulting practice and as the founder of a successful niche consulting firm. Her clients valued her analytical thinking and advice on technical matters but specifically sought her out because of the benefits they found in her coaching for their growth as leaders and executives. As a result, Kay decided over ten years ago to concentrate her practice exclusively on leadership development. As a coach she draws on her deep understanding of business and organizations as well as on her skills in behavior change and conflict management to enhance organizational performance by guiding the development of key leaders. She is a keynote presenter and workshop facilitator for professional groups and leadership teams on topics related to leadership, strategy, change, entrepreneurship, and teambuilding.
