Pamela Green

Before Pam transitioned into executive coaching and consulting, she was an executive leader for the world’s largest human resource association. It was during that time that she became a fierce advocate for the human resource profession and ensured the voice of hundreds of thousands of global human resource leaders was heard and respected around the table. It was also during this time that Pam realized that not all c-suite tables and experiences are the same and that she had an opportunity to help CEOs and their talented suitemates achieve more than individual excellence, but to gain competitive advantage.

To help companies fulfill and maintain their competitive advantage, Pam has been working with leaders aspiring to executive leadership, and those in executive ranks who’ve come to terms with this one crucial acknowledgment: what got you here won’t keep you here. Because economies shift, customer expectations shift, and talent competition is fierce, a new playbook is in order, and she has that playbook for the executive team willing to listen, willing to shift their thinking, and willing to roll up their sleeves and do the work.
