My coaching superpower is empowering you to see things as they really are through reality testing. My go-to strategy within the 15 EQ-i subscales is breaking down the truth through strategic questions that uncover solutions. My go-to question is: “What about this is 2% true?”. As an expert in the EQ-i 2.0 debrief process, I’ll help you use your results to tap into your strengths ultimately building your MSU®-busting superpower, letting you sashay your way to success.
Training teams and individuals to perform under pressure for more than 30 years, I’m the go-to behavioral dynamics expert. Emotional intelligence much? My superpower is my EQ x-ray vision: my ability to see someone’s strengths, weaknesses and potential blind spot patterns and how those show up in their behaviors, perspective, relationships and communication styles. I take each piece, view it as a whole and chart out an easy to implement roadmap that results in practical steps and lasting behavioral change.

Also known as “Dr. Fancy Pants” because I’m actually a Doctor of Physical Therapy AND a sassy leadership coach! I’m a huge fan of disrupting the status quo, stretching your individual capacity, and helping you see your potential in a new way.
My coaching superpower is my ability to put people at ease (which is probably a direct result of my signature coaching cocktail: one-part genuine curiosity, one-part candor, finished with a heavy splash of disarming humor. Cheers)!
Joy Humbarger, PCC
I’m all about turning things up to amplify the power of collective individuality. My coaching superpower is maximizing others with a healthy dose of PEEP (patience, encouragement, enthusiasm, and positivity); and yes, I do love Peeps – human and candy)! I was first hired as a coach two decades ago with a genuine curiosity and ability to bring about awareness in people. That led to the awesome privilege of working with leaders across the world, both as a coach and coach educator.
Can I get a connection? My superpower is building relationships to connect individuals to a community and sharing resources. Throughout my career, I have developed my creativity to problem solve. It is the people, not the numbers, that fire me up. I transitioned to the coaching world in 2012 to help others define their version of success so they can live on their “happy island”. I thrive when creating connected communities and being part of KSYE is one of my “happy islands”.

The Connector. That’s me. I’m all about building relationships that build potential. I hook up inspired coaches with the right next step, because I’ve been on both sides of the crazy coaching equation. I leapt into sales strategy and coaching after spending nearly three decades (count’ em!) in sales and marketing for giants like IBM and Compaq. I bring a contagious energy and a customer service conscience. I’m never afraid to share my experience. I’ve got the scars and patience to field any questions.
Keeping stress at a minimum and checking off the boxes to amplify the work of KickStart Your Edge Team—that’s my superpower. I’m all over the details, making sure all that the other stuff gets done. Even my checklists have checklists. I’m not afraid to ask questions that bring the team closer to our goals with a creative solution always in my back pocket.
Karen Sullivan, PCC
Unshakable and ready to G.S.D, I’m the retired police chief constantly inspired to create game-changing impact in the next arena. I’ve trained over 1000 coaches and I’m calling out the REAL issues and elephants in the Zoom room, training room, or board room because there’s no time for B.S. I don’t do boring and fluff goes with peanut butter not coaching. I’m always agile, tweetable, and ready to pivot.
My coaching superpower:
getting to the thing-behind-the-thing
Jenn Barley, PCC
Always ready to bring the fire, the insight, and the most relevant jam for the room (talkin’ music not your mama’s marmalade). I’m going to shake things up. A master coach, facilitator extraordinaire (been teaching this coaching thing since 2008) plus I’ve got an uncanny ability to break down concepts with as many illustrative examples as I’ve got funky shoes in my closet (note: it’s a big closet).
My coaching superpower:
Endless, creative flow of questions
