I am an ICF Certified Executive Coach and 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 worked in Organizational Development and Marketing/Communications Strategy for major companies across many vertical industries including the High Tech industry, Healthcare (in the US and Canada), the Financial industry, and the Food & Beverage industry at the Global Enterprise, SMB, and Startup levels.  I work with MBA programs to help students seek and find clarity via the use of emotional intelligence.  I have worked with Rotman School of Business (University of Toronto), Tuck School of Business (Dartmouth College), and Marshall School of Business (University of Southern California).
I have served businesses of all types and sizes with individual executive coaching, team coaching, visioning + strategic planning, leadership development programs, marketing strategy, and interactive communications development.

I am always learning.

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.  In my time as a coach, I have received certifications in behavior, motivation, emotional intelligence, and specialized training in working with teams.  I design and facilitate advanced leadership trainings focused on helping teams develop emotional safety and trust.

I am trained as a Master Coach and certified by International Coach Federation (ICF).  I am also a Certified Practitioner of Leadership Circle 360 and the Leadership Culture Survey and I use the synergistic approach of behavioral science, adult development, and ancient tradition to better understand my clients and help them better understand themselves and others.  I also work with the Enneagram and find great value in looking at each of us as “parts of a whole” and working with my clients to build on the ways they can elevate their vision for the future and look at every experience as opportunity.

I have additional specialized training in Presence Based Leadership, Transformational Leadership, Somatic Coaching, Authenticity, Creativity, Strategic Planning, Design Thinking, and Culture Transformation.

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.
