Leadership Coach for Creative Professionals + Entrepreneurs – Amelia Kruse

Amelia is a creative leadership coach transforming professionals and entrepreneurs into flourishing leaders of work and life.

As life gets more complicated and responsibilities increase, we all want the ability to manage challenges gracefully and successfully but often find ourselves ill-equipped to do so. Professional and personal challenges of any nature can have a significant impact on our wellbeing and can cause us to experience states of stress, self-doubt, frustration, anxiety, depression and denial.

So what if you could learn ways to see and utilize these inevitable road-bumps, dilemmas and hardships as opportunities to grow and evolve authentically? That’s where Emotional Intelligence, EQ, comes in. EQ is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express your emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. When we regularly work on maintaining and improving our EQ, our ability to manage and grow from challenges exponentially increases.

Leadership coaching is an exceptional way to develop your EQ and flourish in your professional and personal life.

I coach creative professionals and entrepreneurs through challenges and transitions so they can authentically grow their unique form of leadership. I focus on developing self-awareness, empathy, emotional management, effective listening and communication skills, confidence and compassion in my clients in ways that can become a part of their habitual makeup.

I help my clients tap into their innate strengths and underlying values, passions and motivations to build authenticity in thought and action. I coach clients to challenge long-standing assumptions, identify and eradicate blind spots, and illuminate fresh perspectives to remove identity blockers and find their path forward as a leader of themselves and others.

I specialize in coaching individuals and teams in the creative industries and entrepreneurial space. Individual clients have come from companies like Droga5, Google, Spotify, Anomaly, Airbnb, The Participation Agency, NBA, Calvin Klein, Domino, Weber Shandwick, Joan, Flatiron Health, Fishawack Health (Carling Communications), Timberland, Delivery Hero, Narcity Media, Matter Unlimited, Sotheby’s, Wednesday Agency, Skillshare, Newmark Knight Frank, Presence Learning, Mathematica, Quizlet and 1010data.

I have a holistic coaching style that focuses on the development of the whole person so my clients can flourish and best lead themselves and others in all facets of work and life. I am an intuitive and compassionate certified professional coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and a certified EQ assessor with Six Seconds (EQAC), The Emotional Intelligence Network. I am based in New York and coach professionals and entrepreneurs globally.
