About Ken Kilday

Meet Ken Kilday.

Ken is a former executive leader and current Executive Business Coach. He uses the diversity and depth of his leadership experience to help CEOs, Business Owners, and Executives become better leaders, make better decisions, and deliver better results, both personally and professionally.

Whether by implementing the It’s Business, Not Social™ method, individual coaching or team effectiveness work – the unifying principle is that of awareness. The highest performing leaders use keen awareness to do three things consistently:

  • They step away from their day-to-day responsibilities to think about and focus *on* the business rather than *in* it.
  • They connect with other leaders in similar roles and share learnings to help each other make important, more informed decisions.
  • They constantly seek outside perspectives for new and innovative ideas to bring into their businesses.

Ken’s unique ability to connect with others, help them reflect objectively, and confront challenges with courage leads to positive results in business and at home.
