Taking a Holistic Approach to Executive Leadership with Caren Kenney #88

In the episode, Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast by leadership thought leader and C-suite executive coach Caren Kenney!

Caren has worked with many leaders, from early-stage start-up CEOs to Fortune 100 executives.

She is also the Founder and CEO of Evolve Leadership, a global executive coaching and development organization that offers the world's only holistic (whole-person, whole-life) C-suite development programs that prepare leaders to thrive in highly-visible and demanding roles.

Now more than ever, top leaders are starting to talk about their struggles because of the demands of their roles — whether it’s a Fortune 100 CEO reflecting on personal sacrifices and impact on her family or a high-profile HR Director calling out concerns about his or her mental wellbeing – the reality is many senior leaders are struggling to cope.

Fortunately, Evolve Leadership’s C-suite development programs have helped 1000s of executives achieve and sustain higher levels of physical wellbeing, mental and emotional resilience, and character-centred leadership, and we will find out how during this show!

Before launching Evolve Leadership, Caren spent 12 years at Johnson & Johnson, where she was part of the Human Performance Institute leadership team and the Executive Director of its Premier Executive Leadership program.

Caren is also a co-author with Dr. Jim Loehr, international performance psychologist and human performance expert, of the book titled "Leading with Character-10 Minutes A Day To A Brilliant Legacy".
