Change management consultant Kelley Black’s unique brand of coaching involves Naam yoga and honest self-questioning.
“Why are you here?” she asks clients who take her classes. “What do you want to contribute?” After this simple exercise in authenticity, she then deftly turns a room full of Type A personalities into a relaxed and willing band of consciousness-seekers.
For Black, balance is not about juggling two diametrically opposed forces, but integrating them. She talks of “moving through the world from the heart with the intellect serving the heart — the two of them linked.” Her wisdom is self-liberating: Rather than driving a point home, elevate the conversation. Rise above the level of the problem. Feel whatever you’re feeling, but don’t get stuck in it.
