Kris Plachy Coaching Manifesto
We are thought leaders here We don’t suffer fools and we also don’t indulge in what the pack is doing. We invite ourselves, our teammates and our clients to always be stretching beyond what we think is possible.
We are creative and innovative and do not accept justifications, blame or excuses as a means to rectify mistakes. We acknowledge when things don’t go well and then we move along to find better solutions.
We are somewhat giddy about what we get to do every day and who we get to do it with. We are so damn lucky to work with each other and with the clients we serve. How could it possibly be this good? Light hearted, but serious is a daily approach to our work.
We connect with people for reals There’s nothing phony or inauthentic about connecting with this team. We don’t placate and false praise. We give honest, meaningful feedback and we connect as adults. We are emotionally mature and consistently show a willingness to grow and challenge ourselves to be resilient.
We recognize that everything changes Change is not to be avoided; it is embraced. We know there can always be a way to be better and do better. We show up for one another. We have each other’s backs and we work it out, like grown-ups.
We love to play We make commitments to celebrate, just as hard as we work. We live lives that are full of fun and play time. We don’t define who we are by last month’s performance but more about how well we design the lives we love.
Lastly, we are the team that when others see us coming, they say “Thank God you’re here.” We are recognized as the best at what we do. We are proud of that association and we take pride in what it takes to achieve an impeccable brand and the investment it takes to continue to evolve and uplevel.
In order to meet our mission To Prove the Power of One Thriving Woman, we are compelled to be conscious of the barriers that we face as women in what is viewed as a male-dominated arena of entrepreneurship.
For women who have identities that are marginalized by society, including LGBTQ+ are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), and many other identify intersections, we are cognizant of additional systemic and societal barriers they face.
At Kris Plachy Coaching Group, we recognize people have unique lived experiences that impact how they experience the world, and how the world perceives and treats them.
We want all women in our programs to know that we not only see your uniqueness, but that we recognize the differences of your lived experience, and we honor you.
We are committed to continuous improvement in our own learning, growth, and institutionalization of consciously inclusive practices.
We approach conscious inclusion of diverse perspectives and experiences with cultural humility, openness, and commitment to helping all women CEOs thrive.
While we are constantly innovating to meet the needs of our diverse clients, we are currently institutionalizing conscious inclusion in our business through multiple actions including:
- Staffing: intentional recruitment of diverse team members, coaches, and guest experts that reflect our diverse clientele.
- Curriculum: hiring an in-house Conscious Inclusion advisor to our team and clients through regular workshops and dedicated weekly Conscious Inclusion office hours.
- Purchasing: partnering with equity-minded women and BIPOC-owned vendors and service providers to circulate dollars in minoritized communities.
- Action Planning & Accountability: completing Inclusive Behavior Inventory (IBI) Assessments and action plans for all KPCG staff to identify and benchmark areas where we can improve on being more inclusive.
