About Colleen

Colleen OMalley is a changemaker and wayfinder focused on unleashing human potential and pathways. She believes in a future where we all show up as our best selves to create purposeful and thriving lives, communities, and workplaces.

For the past 30+ years Colleen has worked side-by-side with organizational, educational, governmental, and military leaders to provide targeted problem solving as it relates to people development.

Her genuine and compassionate approach paired with her successful career unite as she inspires, motivates, builds trust and mutual respect, and creates alignment for individuals, teams, and organizations. Colleen also enjoys writing, podcasting, vlogging, and keynote speaking.

Core areas of focus include onboarding, justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI), visioning with aligned action, vulnerability, trust and respect, leading during crisis, talent / pipeline development, and employee well-being.

(FOURTH WALL BREAK) My favorite part of being Colleen is my life experience, from living full-time in an RV with my little family and seeing North America, to trusting my intuition before letting my brain kick in.  Doesn’t mean I don’t use my brain, I just know how to successfully read people and situations while solving for problems by following my heart and soul first.

(BACK TO THIRD PERSON NARRATIVE) For fun Colleen and her family have a little hobby farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and when they aren’t caring for their critters and space and place, they plan trips to places like Iceland, Maine, British Columbia, Quebec and Greece, not that we’ve taken all those trips yet, but we do love our adventures!

It has been a remarkable year!  Colleen has inspired me to dream bigger than I ever have before and – more importantly – helped me define concrete steps to reach each goal.  I’m finally learning how to do life the way I really want to do it!  Colleen’s gift of encouragement is truly amazing, and I can’t wait for us to get started next year.  Bring it on, coach!  ~ Emma, Sydney, Australia
