Kristen Ell

Founding Partner


I am a life-long Minnesotan, 15-year Global HR Business Partner, and Executive Coach. I hold several HR certifications and am on track for obtaining my ACC after completing the Executive Coaching program through the University of St. Thomas. In addition, I am a certified Analyst and Talent Optimization Consultant for the Predictive Index, as well as a Shift+ 360° Certified Facilitator. I earned a BA in Anthropology, with a Psychology emphasis from the University of Minnesota, Duluth and am currently enrolled in the Positive Psychology Specialization Certificate Program through the University of Pennsylvania.

Why I’m a Part of CCO:

My exposure to Coaching positively and profoundly shifted the course of my life, and I believe this same level of empowerment is available to everyone who seeks it. The like-minded and extremely talented community I have met in the process has solidified a call to action in me to see the CCO take root and grow vast with the altruistic belief that we can share our message, skills, and community to ultimately incite the best in each other.

If we meet, you should ask me about:
