Kimberly Giddens is on a mission. A vigilante at heart (#deliberative) she aims to empower women in leadership roles with intent to disrupt the imbalance of power and make the world a better place.

“There is no more effective way to empower people than to see each person in terms of his or her strengths.” - Don Clifton

Taking Strengthsfinder over ten years ago ignited her passion for the strengths-based philosophy and how it drives results. Results measured in business metrics, employee engagement and the personal fulfillment from getting to do what you do best everyday.

Leveraging her strategic thought process and deep understanding of brand ideals, she incorporated this tool into one on one coaching, team development, new role assimilation and creating learning tools that connect employees to company objectives.

Kimberly has over 25 years of experience working for multiple Fortune 500 companies, leading multi-unit businesses across the US and Canada. Her results have always made her a finance team favorite, but its her people savvy that has earned her legions of fans among promoted, engaged and successful employees under her leadership.

She believes extraordinary results begin with the leader and are amplified by strong teams.
Although awareness and accountability are at the core of her practice, targeting moments of excellence is what energizes her most. Mapping those successes, uncovering patterns, pointing to talent and creating methods that enable each person to reach their potential.

Business results aside, she wants to be able to empower women to claim their success and gain fulfillment in their careers. According to several studies, the biggest problem we face today is that women are dropping out of the labor force, jeopardizing our chance for balance.
