HI, I’M KRISTY.

I created Sow to Speak with the sole intention of helping people communicate from the inside out. I support established and emerging leaders in raising their emotional intelligence, presentation, and communication skills. I realize that when you strengthen any mental muscle, it transcends and impacts every area of your life. Through waking up to the way you show up in the world (self-awareness), you’re able to shift gears (self-regulate) within yourself and notice how to relate with others too (empathy and social awareness).

The result? A sustainable and cohesive shift of trust, empathy, and courage from the inside out.

Once you establish a genuine connection with yourself, you show up more present, real, and clear for others, plain and simple. Why? Because it’s all an inside job. And with that comes increased engagement, retention, innovation, productivity, and profitability. It’s all connected.

As a certified ICF coach, I combine my years of research and practice within personal and professional development with my education from my graduate work at Emerson College, the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College, The Stella Adler Studio of Acting (NYC), and The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre (NYC) to bring you practical (and fun!) tools that you can mix and match to support you whenever you need them most. It doesn’t just take a village to raise a child; it takes a village to raise a human. We were never meant to go at it alone; let’s do it together.

NOW ABOUT YOU.

The best leaders have the incredible ability to bring us together so that we can truly connect and express our unique selves all while finding a genuine sense of belonging in this whole shebang. 

We’re all leaders somewhere in our lives. Sometimes it’s our choosing; other times it’s our duty. Either way, it’s our birthright. What’s needed is…

A SHIFT IN THE SPOTLIGHT.

Stellar communication and creativity are not designated for the chosen few. There’s no secret password or cool factor required. We all have the potential to reach deep into our imagination and find inspiration that already exists within us.

This is the sweet spot for creating meaningful work. Once you tap into how the work you do services the greater good, you’re golden.

After all, individual commitment to a group effort is what makes the world go round in the right direction.
