Keynotes, Speaking, and Workshop Facilitation

In her candid and provocative style, Dr. Kym displays genuine vulnerability as she reveals a tsunamic career experience that led to her mantra, “Competence is more than Performance.”  The brand bruising lesson has inspired her business and her message.

Dr. Kym is passionate about helping other leaders, executives, and women of color understand why they must minimize the “head down, hard work approach to success” and off-set strong performance with authentic relationships that matter.  Her keynote and workshop messages impart relevant and practical strategies from her M.O.R.E Mindset coaching methodology, which is based on four pillars: Maximum Self-Awareness; Optimal Optimism; Rich Relationships; and Empathetic Engagement.

Dr. Kym skillfully guides her audiences to the awareness that authenticity, bold action, courage and mutual understanding are what lead to meaningful career success – without compromise. Her message leaves audiences with insights and tools to influence, collaborate, motivate and lead more effectively.

Dr. Kym delivers conference keynotes, facilitates conference breakout sessions, leadership development workshops, and webinars.  She speaks at Leadership Conferences; Corporate Events; and Colleges and Universities. Her topics include:

  • The Qualities of M.O.R.E.® Mindset Leadership
  • How do People Experience You? – The Power of Self-Awareness
  • Optimism: The Secret Sauce of Resilience
  • Balancing Performance with Relationships that Matter
  • The Power of Empathetic Engagement

Dr. Kym Harris has years of experience as a leader in human resources and solid academic credentials as well, but what makes her most effective as a leadership development professional is her powerful presence. When Kym presents before a group she is all there, and her honesty and vulnerability, combined with her knowledge and competence, create an extraordinary developmental experience for the audience. It is impossible to grow until you can see yourself clearly, and Kym both tells us and shows us how to do that. She understands the unique challenges women and particularly women of color face, but she also goes far beyond that to speak to each of us as human beings – and helps us all be more humble and more courageous.

You are a great presenter. You have great poise and confidence and you make connecting with strangers look easy.

Dr. Kym Harris is a consummate professional and one of the best speakers I’ve heard and I’ve heard a lot! In a recent women’s leadership seminar with an audience of over 60 business executives and professionals, she made a flawless presentation. I was extremely impressed with everything about her presentation – including the rich content and her ability to connect with the audience through real world examples. But perhaps the most impressive of all is Kym’s authenticity as a person, and how she integrates her own story of growth and development as a leader, demonstrating both personal vulnerability as well as true character.
