Executive Career Coach And Speaker Launches Book On Career Courage


Successful executive coach and speaker Katie C. Kelley has released a book focused around ‘Career Courage’. Providing executive coaching, the book walks readers through the vital process of analyzing their motivations and taking stock of strengths to muster the courage to take the next step in their career.


Including inspiring stories of people who hit critical junctures and broke through fears and limitations to make a change, Career Courage offers guideposts for finding your true calling and improving your ability to take risks, build alliances, project confidence, and create trust and goodwill in your life and work. It offers strategies and insights from a seasoned career coach who serves as a personal guide through the questioning and development process ahead.


Katie is People Development Director for Fuerst Group, parent company of KEEN footwear and Chrome Industries. Her own career pivots include stints as a psychotherapist, a medical salesperson, an ABC Television contributor, and, most recently, as an executive coach with clients that included Google and Time Inc.


An inspiring and easy read that gave me focus and drive to figure out where I’m going with my career. This book made me reassess what I’m doing in my current role, if I have the right balance in each part of my life and where I want to be. Until reading this I wasn’t able to grasp how I have enabled myself to become comfortable with just collecting a paycheck versus finding career happiness. Now I feel motivated to make adjustments and armed with knowledge on how to do so. I highly recommend this for those seeking career guidance and focus.

Erin Courtney, Financial Executive


To celebrate the launch, Katie has partnered with organizations such as CNN, Time Warner and Google, as well as Universities such as the University of Pennsylvania, Emory University and the University of Oregon, to offer premium Career Courage workshops for students and employees.


Career Courage is being distributed on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and an audio book will soon be released on iTunes, Overdrive and Audible.
