Kristen Kirkland

Scaling for Growth: Head of Operations

Kristen Kirkland is a key driving force behind the infrastructure and implementation of Scaling for Growth, RHR’s premier cohort-based leadership program. She is motivated by her ability to create tangible change in the lives of leaders; radically enhancing the way they lead others and support their own mental health. Having worked as COO of the nonprofit Every Mother Counts for six years, Kristen has experienced first-hand the challenges and pressures that executives face.

Kristen’s Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology and unparalleled passion for long-distance running enable her to practice exactly what she believes in - mental health and fitness as vital elements of a busy executive lifestyle. At RHR, Kristen weaves this into the way she innovates by creating new leadership development products while also providing outstanding assessment and coaching for leaders from Fortune 50 companies to young start-ups. She combines this with her unique ability to create structure where it is most vitally needed, a skill that also supports her as an energetic and dedicated mother.
