laleo, pronounced lal-eh’-o, is a Greek word meaning: to speak. At laleo ministries we believe that speaking comes in many forms including words, images, and even silence. In particular we are all about making room for the word of God to speak to God’s people. Two of the primary ways we do this is through coaching and speaking engagements.
We hope you find in us a connection to God, to word, to life – full life, abundant life.
About our founder: Kristen D Williams
For as long as I can remember, I have been a cheerleader for others (although my sixth grade tryouts tried to tell me otherwise). I am by God’s design, and confirmed by Gallup Strengthsfinder, filled with contagious enthusiasm. I have been told by many along life’s journey that I bring positive energy wherever I go, even that I “light up a room.” My passion is to use this positivity to help others get excited about life, especially their own.
I spent most of my adult like using my positivity, and my other top five strengths (activator, communication, responsibility, and strategic), as integral parts of my professional career. This work has included information technology, accounting, product development, alternative delivery systems, systems analysis, youth work, church work, committees, teams, budgeting and leadership development.
Then in 2012 I discovered that there is a vocation perfectly suited for my gifts and strengths. Enter coaching.
I have been prepared for coaching through study, training, and experience. My coaching studies include: systems thinking, action learning, human development, positive psychology, appreciative inquiry, dialogue, and emotional intelligence. My coach training includes: deep listening, powerful questions, professional covenants/ agreements, and coaching ethics. My coaching experience includes: training groups, individual coaching, team coaching, leadership development, and team building. This experience has taken place in person, via voice calls, video calls, and online learning.
