I’ve had ridiculous years before. But never a year of bullshit. Here’s what I learned when a friend called my bullshit and I revealed my dark side.
I advise leaders on how to make their change efforts successful, coach and mentor marketing, sales and corporate communications teams so that they achieve more than they thought possible, and facilitate important off-site leadership and board meetings. As trusted guide, facilitator and thought provoker, I believe the answers you need can be found from the people within your organization.Read more about working together
I've been a change agent and rebel throughout my career, helping some of the most respected companies in the world sell, market, communicate, deal with crises, go public, adopt innovative practices, and occasionally try to move mountains. During this journey, I became a student of change, learning what it takes to get people to embrace new ideas. My role model is the late actress Ruth Gordon. My cause is the Rebels at Work movement. My obsession is creating clarity from complexity.Learn more about Lois Kelly
I teach, research, and write in order to learn. Please enjoy the presentations and eBooks I've created during my learning journey. Some have been viewed by 100,000 people. One was the basis for a book. Others have been thought starters for me, and I hope for you.View Resources
Curiosity and fearlessness have governed my career, beginning at 15-years-old writing feature stories for a Boston newspaper, getting immersed in issues management and crisis communications right out of college, moving into high tech marketing as the dot com boom starting booming, writing an award-winning book about word of mouth marketing in 2007, guiding clients into digital and social marketing innovations, and helping rebel change makers at large companies overcome obstacles to create important new initatives.
I have worked in corporations (AT&T), big marketing agencies, and boutique consulting firms. While I was honored to work in executive roles at some extraordinary companies, I opened my own firm 17 years ago so that I could focus my time on counseling clients.
