Kimberly Napier is a certified executive coach, speaker, author, and intuitive guide with over thirty years of experience working with Fortune 500 companies. Committed to helping professionals step into their most authentic and conscious version of themselves, Kimberly has spent the past decade coaching hundreds of executives across industries from pharmaceuticals/biotech, high tech, retail, and consumer brands toward elevating their level of success and personal fulfillment.
Her unique 1-1 coaching style is a transformative blend of pragmatism and intuitive guidance, which leverages her training in neuroscience, positive psychology, conscious leadership, organization/relationship systems coaching, and mysticism. Kimberly’s clients have called her a ‘wizard at discerning their truth.’ Her superpower is uncovering and reframing, the unconscious blocks that have kept people from living the fullest expression of themselves. Kimberly is masterful at helping her clients connect more deeply to their own intuition, where they cultivate the courage and trust within themselves to become more conscious, confident, and resilient leaders.
Prior to coaching, Kimberly worked in market research insights, innovation, and brand strategy. Working with some of the most iconic brands and their teams as a facilitator, focus group moderator, and strategist, she helped them uncover their brand purpose and build their innovation pipelines. Kimberly held executive consulting positions at Nielsen (Head of Analytics) and Forbes Consulting (SVP, Partner) working with global brands including Unilever, Gillette, PepsiCo, Pfizer, and Loreal. Her final corporate role was as the Head of Global Insights for Welch Foods and was instrumental in revitalizing the brand image. After twenty years of helping companies uncover their purpose, her work evolved into helping individuals and teams find theirs. Having shared experiences with executives, Kimberly is uniquely able to reach them on a deeper level to navigate leadership challenges and create the desired impact for themselves and their organizations.
Following a tragic wake-up call that propelled her to reinvent her personal and professional life in 2012, Kimberly created her own proprietary process for sustainable positive change: the DAREchange® Method in 2013. This process is highlighted in her best-selling book “Know What You Want Next” and in her celebrated online course by the same name. She is also the best-selling author of “Elevated: Take Your Life to the Next Level,” which helps people live a life aligned with higher consciousness. Kimberly has an MBA from Babson College, is certified in positive psychology, and is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with The International Coaching Federation. She is also a certified coach (CPCC) through CTI – Co-Active Training Institute and trained through CRR Global in systems coaching.
