Professional and Master Coaches are deeply familiar with the tools in the WiLD Toolkit. Each brings their own unique coaching style and methodology to their coaching. If they share two things, it is their mission for investing deeply in this generation of leaders and potential leaders, and a belief that the heart and the mind of leaders are equally important. Therefore, they are driven to increase the performance of their clients, while never ignoring the sacrifice that may be necessary to lead at the next level. Most Wild Coaches and facilitators are independent professionals who have been trained to facilitate the tools or serve as executive coaches, but are not employees of WiLD Leaders.
- Coaching Style: I bring my own expertise leadership experience, but always focus on the needs to those I’m coaching. As one client said, “Amanda’s experience alongside her ability listen is what made the difference for me.”
- Coaching Interest: I love coaching individuals who find themselves leading in a corporate or formal organizational context.
- Work Portfolio: I am currently the Deputy Commissioner for the Department of Transportation in the state of Alaska.
Relationally Introspective is the way I would describe my coaching style. I will walk beside you as we embrace the tough questions that bring to light the darker areas of your leadership acumen together. I am passionate about providing the time, space, and resources that you will need to grow in the why, what, and how of your leadership context.
My coaching experience has been enhanced through serving in multiple ministry contexts, the non-profit world, and more recently, the retail and customer service arenas. I have learned in each of these contexts the greatest challenge we face as leaders lie within us. The WiLD Leader’s Tool Kit has played a significant role in that discovery. I believe it can do the same for you.
In sailing, you typically have two sails. The front sail is often the jib sail. Its primary purpose is to empower the mainsail. I find that to be a great metaphor for coaching. As a coach, my purpose is not to set the direction or provide the forward movement. It is to be out front just enough to empower the client. With coaching, you will find yourself moving forward with more confidence and success than you would without a coach. I bring a diverse employment background ranging from corporate management to pastoral ministry. I have been trained by Coachnet and WiLD Leadership and have been coaching and teaching coaching for over 10 years.

I’m known for pushing people to know their limits. Coaching with me is going to take you to another level. I like to ask a lot of questions and learn about your passions, as well as your calling. If you don’t know your calling or purpose, I’d love to come alongside and discover them with you. If you get high on ideation, innovation and strategy, I would get along great with you. My desire is to help you see the gaps in your life and help you balance the ever-changing “work and home” spectrum. I love working with diverse groups of people and companies who are aware that work and life intersect.
To me coaching is an opportunity to take a leader the next level and bring some people with him or her. I have worked with small to medium size business leaders and startup entrepreneurs to help them achieve their dreams. I was designed to connect with people and solve process problems. I founded over 10 companies personally and several more in partnership. I come from Spring Arbor University with a decade of experience in social media, marketing and communications strategies. I love consulting with international corporations, evaluating and implementing new media technologies, and information systems infrastructures. My background is in web optimization, applications, and implementing services to enrich teams and grow global businesses in many fields.

Robleh Kirce recently opened LifeLabs San Francisco office as their Director of Coaching and primary leadership development Workshop Facilitator on the west coast.

My obsession with psychology began in childhood, watching my parents’ sociable and influential behavior in the community, in contrast with their turbulent relationship behind closed doors. Before our teenager years, my younger brother and I were orphaned as the result of a murder-suicide. This experience fueled my drive to empirically understand human motivation, perseverance, and meaningfulness in life. And it continues to fuel my passion for preparing clients to be successful in and out of the workplace.
I am driven by creating positive impact through empowerment and redefining relationships in people’s lives. My recent experience includes talent assessment for impact investment firms, women’s leadership research, leadership coaching, and organizational consulting including large scale diversity assessments. I received my Masters in Industrial Organizational Psychology from Seattle Pacific University and am finishing my PhD in the same area. I believe in developing leaders who understand themselves as uniquely designed individuals embedded in a social world, with a special focus on the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, and culture in leadership.
My philosophy of coaching is that it begins with you. I believe that you have passions, hopes, and dare I say dreams that you believe you can achieve. My job is to help you run wildly after these dreams. As a long-distance runner, I am compelled by human potential and the possibility of what you think you are capable of doing. I use a systems-thinking approach to who you are, how you came to be, and what you need to understand as you move forward. As a coach I promise three things: to support you, to actively help you see blind spots and obstacles, and to convince you that you can do more than you think you can.
Dr. Rob McKenna is the Founder of WiLD Leaders, Executive Director of the Center for Leadership Research & Development, and Chair of the Department of Industrial-Organizational Psychology at Seattle Pacific University. Recently named in the top 30 most influential I-O Psychologist alive today, Dr. McKenna is committed to the idea that we could change the world if we could raise up a generation of courageous and sacrificial leaders.
Dr. McKenna has worked with coaching clients all over the world, from executives based in the United States to emerging leaders in India. To him, coaching is a chance to see a leader and to take one intentional step beneath the surface to something that is real and tangible for the leaders he coaches. His goals are to help his coaching clients become aware of things they may not see, understand their impact on the people around them, and use that understanding to impact the next actions they are taking. Coaching clients describe him as insightful, oftentimes hitting the nail right on the head, and coming alongside them as they seek to get something done, see themselves better, and see their impact on their organizations and the people they serve. As he often says, who and why we are impacts what we do. As he will also tell you, he works well with clients who are have the courage to step out and lead, and a willingness to change for the sake of those around them.
