I am an ICF Certified Coach and Senior Organizational Development Strategist.

Courtney Feider, BS, CMT, ACC

I started in the corporate world.

I began working in the corporate world in the healthcare and high tech industries and helping to launch global products. Transitioning to business ownership, I opened a strategic brand communication agency and ran it for 10 years, working with major corporate brands and becoming the founder and host of a variety of events and executive retreats.  I have served businesses of all types and sizes with executive coaching, strategic planning, leadership development programs, marketing strategy, and interactive communications development.

I am an ICF Certified Executive Coach.

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Communications and Secondary Education, with focus areas in Psychology and Art.  I also trained and worked as a Certified Massage Therapist, offering me a deep working knowledge of the body-mind connection and the effect somatic presence has on leadership.  As a coach, I have received certifications in behavior, motivation, emotional intelligence, and specialized training in working with teams.  Since 2014 I have designed and facilitated advanced leadership trainings focused on helping teams develop emotional safety and trust.

I am ICF certified and trained as a master coach.  I apply the principles of communication and presence in my work with tired leaders who need safe space to feel creative, valued, seen and heard.

I have done Organizational Development and Marketing/Communications Strategy for major companies in many vertical industries including the High Tech industry, Healthcare in the US and Canada, the Financial industry, and the Food & Beverage industry at Global Enterprise, SMB, and Startup levels.  I have also worked with reputable MBA programs such as Rotman School of Business at University of Toronto, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and Marshall School of Business at University of Southern California.

I have additional specialty training in Creativity, Strategic Planning, Marketing & Communications, Design Thinking, Culture Transformation, and Presence Based Leadership Development.

I also coach teams.

It is clear to me that the future of work is based on leaders designing a creative and emotionally stable culture for their teams.  I am focused on helping my clients achieve personal transformation, expansive leadership, and a profound shift in engagement and results individually and on the teams they manage.  I find deep satisfaction in working with leaders on a team, helping them to experience a return to real trust and safety in the workplace.

As a session facilitator I bring grounding presence and anchoring to a team or a group of people looking to share a transformational leadership experience as a group.  My group facilitation style is one of listening, inclusion, safety and creative thinking, and my one-on-one coaching helps each leader feel whole and considered so that they can bring their best to group leadership development work and back to the workplace.

My work is global.

I am a member of the Forbes Coaches Council and a regular contributor to Forbes and Thrive Global.  My work has been featured in Fast Company, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, All Business, and on numerous blogs and podcasts.

I work with companies of all sizes across North America and around the world.
