Kip has been practicing authentic and self-aware leadership for over 35 years as Founder & CEO of The Hollister Group. Her passion to help leaders discover the possibility, inner knowing, and worthiness that resides within them drew her to launch the Cultures division.
Kip's innovation shines through as the mastermind behind the proprietary REAL™ Leadership program designed to assist organizations led by people-centric leaders in developing effective teams, maximizing individual contributions, and fostering work cultures that encourage sustainable creativity and impact. Kip feels strongly that the focus for all leaders is about being human first which led her to create her flagship program, Unlocking the Mind, a three-day intensive retreat designed to strengthen participants’ ability to introspect and to be in the inquiry about what holds them back from creating the life they desire.
Beyond her executive role, Kip is renowned as an energy activator and keynote speaker, distinguishing herself with an engaging conversational style that prioritizes being with people, rather than talking at them. Emphasizing the essence of being human first, Kip tailors each engagement uniquely, drawing from the collective wisdom of the group to awaken individuals to their true, vulnerable, and authentic selves.
Experience Kip's supportive and conversational nature through her podcast, Well Being Walks, launched in 2020 amidst the pandemic to create connections among leaders through real and meaningful conversations. Committed to community service, Kip actively contributes by serving on the boards of local organizations such as The Women’s Edge and Recovery Works. She has also received many accolades including the Pinnacle Award as well as being a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur award.
Kip's commitment to continuous growth is evident in her certifications. She holds a Leadership and Coaching certification from the John Maxwell Team and is certified as a Positive Intelligence coach, RTT Therapist, and Deepak Chopra meditation instructor.
On a personal note, Kip is a loving mother of four children and resides in Dover, MA, with her husband and two labs. Her life journey encapsulates not only a legacy of leadership excellence but also a genuine passion for fostering genuine connections and positive transformations in the lives of individuals and organizations alike.
