BBW Member interview with: Christy Kahana, Leadership Trainer/Team Developer

What is your name and occupation?

Christy Kahana, Leadership Trainer/Team Developer

What is your instagram handle?

Don't have one yet, anyone want to teach me how to use IG for business?

How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

Less than a year.

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was born and raised outside of Philadelphia. I came up here for a 6 month work assignment (that was 12 years ago!).

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

My company is CK HR Consulting. I started it a little over a year ago when I realized I could help more people by being on my own and working with a variety of different companies. I do team development, leadership training, and Insights Discovery. Insights is a global team dynamic tool that helps people gain self awareness about themselves and awareness of others styles. Think DISC or Myers Briggs (but better!)

What would your clients say about you and your company?

Funny, I'm working on testimonials right now for my website revamp! Clients say I am high energy, committed, knowledgeable and dedicated to making sure they are getting the personal attention they deserve. My facilitation style has been described as upbeat and relatable!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Don't be afraid to put yourself out there and be unapologetic about the work you do. People will see your authentic self if you just be yourself.

What’s your favorite book?

Personal: Girl on the Train; Professional: Lean In

What’s your secret weapon?

Insights Discovery. I swear by this model, this tool, and everything it stands for. I've been teaching it for over 10 years and it's the best thing I've ever done!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

You have plenty of time to figure out the big stuff. Slow down and take in the little moments.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I'm in the 1994 publication of Who's Who Among American High School Students. I was awarded the spot for Sports (Cheerleading!).
