American Express Leadership Academy

Kim Madrigal, Ph.D. is a certified executive coach with over 25 years of experience in leadership development, organizational operations, and the development of quality and safety standards. In leadership coaching, she partners with leaders to set intentional personal and professional goals and plans to move the initiatives forward. The journey for Kim is a focused one: to combine creativity, knowledge, and experience to deliver the best leadership development for "partner-leaders" to provide the greatest personal and professional impact within their own organizations.

Kim's formal leadership training includes studies as a Woodruff fellow at Georgetown University, which led to a certification in executive coaching. Kim also achieved a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Cultural Studies. These skillsets better prepared Kim to diversify her service in leadership coaching and development to help leaders and teams achieve their full potential.

Certified in a number of organizational development tools; executive and performance coaching, program quality and external assessment, and competency modeling and consulting, Kim currently leads the operations for one of the top seven largest Boys & Girls Clubs in the country. Endorsed by Leadership Strategies as a master facilitator, Kim has led training and professional development for hundreds of leadership teams for Boys & Girls Clubs of America, one of the largest youth-serving organizations in the country.

Over the years, Kim has worked with for-profit and nonprofit leaders to ensure mission-centric goals are achieved. Kim has traveled the nation and trained thousands of CEO's, executives, board of directors, and frontline staff in leadership development, strategy development and implementation and program design and facilitation. She has also provided consulting on strategic planning, team development, and the implementation and evaluation of curriculum, quality, and safety for organizations of all sizes.

Kim sees the Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina Greensboro as a tailored component of her educational journey. Combining her Ph.D. with a Master of Liberal Studies degree from the University of Toledo and a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Indiana University has provided her with the leadership tools to foster those skills in others. Kim’s role is to help others recognize the leader inside and commit to further developing their own potential as leaders in order to better achieve personal, as well as, collective organizational goals.
