Kelly Irons bring a passion for facilitation to every group she partners with. With a solid background in off-the-shelf and custom facilitation, Kelly has led learning sessions on topics ranging from Safe Crisis Management through Human Capital Management. Her facilitation success is rooted in an ability to quickly connect with an audience and respond to the dynamics in the room while keeping the objective intact.
Kelly started her career in operations management for non-profit mental health facilities in the Philadelphia area, where development of individuals was the core business. From there, a career in training and development emerged, pointing her towards leadership roles in both public and private organizations.
Today, her roots in human development remain at the core of her business practice, and she operates under the guiding philosophy that — in order to impact a group, you have to impact the individuals that make up the group. From this foundation, her work in coaching, mentoring and leadership emerged.
Her leadership style and commitment to individual and organizational excellence have earned her multiple awards throughout her career, including Agent of Change, Employee of the Year, Vintage Partner Award, and an HR Excellence award.
