Support that starts with listening to you.

You’re not interested in checking-the-box. You’re looking for real connection. Training for your leadership & team that isn’t forced or superficial. Engaging and witty conversations that increase productivity and boost communication. You’re hungry for more clarity and discovery, less confusion and stress. I’m here to help.


 

You deserve outside-the-box support

Your organization is one-of-a-kind. Your challenges exist within your specific culture. You value innovation and productivity, and aren’t interested in the show. You care about creating real connection. Good news: nothing about our work together is about checking boxes. This is about meeting your very real needs. Our work together is nuanced, layered, and hands-on. Our work is a deep and meaningful journey. That’s why I only work with a limited number of organizations each year.

I was nervous about the Start Talking About Race workshop. I think my whole group was a little nervous. Most of my group was white. Krystle led us in an activity that was thought provoking and felt natural and possible for us. She listened very deeply, and very gently. At the end of the workshop I felt a sense of relief, and a good feeling of having moved a step forward in the right direction.

The workshop allowed our team to address weighty, baggage-laden ideas and experiences with vulnerability, empathy, and insight. The self-driven, judgement-less orientation of the workshop allows for the challenges it addresses to be undertaken with unique authenticity.

Testimonials


I was hesitant at first to talk about Race being one of 3 minorities in the session. I approached it with much trepidation for many reasons, but after a few minutes I realized that I had to feel all the things I was feeling in order to truly be vunerable and show my heart to those in the session with me. It definitely required an extraordinary amount of bravery, but I walked away being so very glad I did it.
