Dr. Brenda Kelleher-Flight

Brenda is highly proficient at leading not-for-profit boards, college boards, school boards, aboriginal councils/governments/boards, and business teams. Specific areas of expertise include research, governance policy, strategic and business plan development, risk analysis, management policy development, and formulating/updating of constitutions and bylaws.

Brenda is a qualified mediator. Her success as a coach brings referrals to her. Most of her clients are individuals and managers who are professionals in a specific field but have not had managerial training or mentoring or taught the skills necessary for successful interactions. Some of her clients are individuals facing challenges and need to learn conflict resolution skills or prepare for face-to-face meetings to resolve work or personal issues. The key is that when her clients learn how to center, the keys to charisma, and how to network successfully they are always successful in their future endeavours.

What Clients Are Saying

As a manager, I became more aware of the need to include the dynamics of the interpersonal relationship when conducting business.

Knowledge and experience by themselves do not trump the need to establish and maintain positive interpersonal relationships. It allowed me to become less anxious and less inhibited when working.

I am enjoying the moment more, and worrying less about how I am going to get there.

Coaching affirmed for me that with practice, preparation and commitment, I can succeed. My limitations had inherent strengths, which can play a part in my success.

Brenda came into my life when I was experiencing extreme, situational, work-related stress. Brenda’s coaching provided me with a safe environment to express my emotions. She encouraged me to acknowledge these emotions and name them if I wanted to.

Brenda helped me to embrace the idea that all emotions come to help me. For example, help me to recognize my triggers. Also, her coaching helped me to identify the skills that I have and would need to have to manage when those triggers surface.

Brenda listens to my story and helped me to identify how I processed the world around me. Brenda enabled me to see that I was listening to the voices in the world around me – the voices of others.

One of my favorite descriptors of my time with Brenda was that her coaching helped me eliminate all the fluff in my thought-process, mainly the voices of others, and to better focus on the important stuff, or what I wanted to say.

Brenda helped me to identify my truth – my positive truth. One of her frequent questions was, “What is my truth?”

Her coaching helped me to identify and to speak that truth. It helped me created my own voice, and that voice is helping me identify my own power.

Thank you so much for all of your guidance and support, Brenda. You are amazing. We have much work ahead of us, but I feel that we all much better equipped to handle the challenge. I am sure that I can speak for the others that we deeply appreciate your commitment and professionalism.

It is such a fantastic feeling that we are now working together as a team!

M. Tucker

I felt that the exercises were a very good part of the session. This made all of us think about some of the hard questions with respect to the role of management and board members. This approach is more practical and hand-on and works much better than lecture style

Julie Kavanagh

Dr. Kelleher-Flight’s presentation helped us meet our conference goal by providing information to benefit delegates in their respective businesses. We were very pleased with the positive comments on your workshop.

Hubert Langdon

Dr. Kelleher-Flight is very knowledgeable on the subject of governance. She kept us focused on the task at hand and involved us in the discussions on each aspect of governance. She quite willingly and capably answered our questions. She makes the distinction between governance and management quite clear.

Lori Donovan

I found Dr. Kelleher-Flight to be very informative and engaging. What could have been a very tiring session was actually energizing. Dr. Kelleher-Flight’s knowledge of strategic planning was excellent. I learned a lot. She kept us on task and within the timelines. The goals of each session were reached. We also began to think about what kind of board we are (which is very important to us at this time). Overall, I found it very useful. Thank you.

Regina Wright

Thank you for your excellent work in the preparation of the report. It is most comprehensive and your presentations on this Report were excellent.
I learned how my “Gregorc Mind Style” will help me understand my natural way and how to relate to people who have different styles. I know i)what makes a good elevator speech and how to make people want to know more and ii) the importance of having ‘offerings’ that will give people a choice. I now have a practical way of making sure my business objectives are met.
