Dennece McKelvy, founder and principal of Intuitive Directions, has been awarded one of the first-ever business “Team Coaching Certifications” from the prestigious International Coaching Federation.
She is one of only 136 worldwide to receive this distinction, which differentiates her from the more than 30,000 certified coaches worldwide, according to a press release.
Ms. McKelvy, of Phoenix, has more than 25 years of leadership experience, including general, operations and program management. She has successfully led people and organizations through start-up, turnaround and growth modes.
Ms. McKelvy has been coaching teams within multinational organizations for over 10 years using a proprietary team coaching process, Team Advantage, developed by the Pyramid Resource Group, the release states. This has uniquely positioned her to coach local companies such as PetSmart, and Banner Health. She also coaches nationally and internationally as an adjunct team member of several large coaching firms.
“Being one of the first to receive certification from ICF is a major accomplishment,” Ms. McKelvy said in a prepared statement. “This is an additional mark of credibility as team and group coaching become preferred means of inspiring valued leaders and their teams. It creates long-lasting partnerships, which are vital, as I assist clients in making transformational changes, becoming more agile and resilient in the face of today’s business challenges.”
Rob Burrows, former vice president, global product portfolio management of Pfizer, recalls his experience with Ms. McKelvy fondly.
“I really enjoyed the experience working with Dennece, he said. “She has a great ability to quickly understand the dynamics of a situation and then ask probing questions to help the team develop potential solutions. In addition, she prevents teams from going down ‘blind alleys’ by reminding them of the objectives of the team.”
Ms. McKelvy earned a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from the University of Arizona and her EMBA from Arizona State University. She received her professional coaching training from Adler International Coaching School and resides in north central Phoenix.
