Leadership coach and advisor Dannielle Kennedy, Ph.D., is passionate about getting her clients the information and support they need to deepen awareness, drive success, and develop and inspire their teams.
Drawing on her background in psychology and group dynamics Dannie helps executives to understand and leverage their talents, identify and address limitations, personal and organizational, and to read and influence organizational forces that shape outcomes. Through an holistic, systems-oriented approach that often uses verbatim 360° feedback, she asks clients to locate themselves, their roles, and their goals in the surrounding mix of values, work processes, and competing agendas. Her method enables leaders and teams to surface hidden obstacles and develop personal and organizational strategies that create forward motion and growth.
Dannie is a former president of the Board of Directors of the Boston Center of the A.K. Rice Institute and has directed conferences on authority and leadership in the Tavistock tradition. She is on the faculty of the Executive Coaching Program at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and has served on the Case Series Editorial Board of the Family Firm Institute. As an adjunct faculty member at Simmons College and guest lecturer at Harvard University and Smith College, she has taught courses on leadership, executive coaching, organizational theory and consultation, post-merger integration, applied research methods, and group dynamics. Prior to joining WorkLab (formerly Nautilus Consulting Group), Dannie worked as a senior consultant at KRW International, an executive development boutique.
Dannie holds a Ph.D. from Simmons College and is a graduate of the Advanced Studies in Organizational Development Program at the Boston Institute of Psychotherapy. Her clients include Fortune 500 corporations and institutions in electronic information, financial services, advertising, publishing, testing and assessment services, human resources and university administration.
