Colleen
Bracken

Founder and Managing Partner

Colleen Bracken

Colleen Bracken founded Bracken Leadership in 2003 to contribute to creating healthy organizations in which leaders and employees feel valued and inspired to contribute to the mission of the organization. She understands that people drive business, and has designed Bracken Leadership around that tenet.

Bracken Leadership has been built on more than 20 years of experience in human strategy, human performance development, communication and organizational dynamics, and personifies the collaborative spirit and drive embodied by Colleen. As she teams with clients across industries, she brings her experience in group dynamics, facilitation, and leadership to create powerful, healthy communities within organizations, including her own.

Kim
Pelle

Chief Left Brainer

Kim Pelle

Kim Pelle is responsible for keeping Bracken Leadership on top of its technological and fiscal health, drawing from his broad experience in computing, finance, and logistics. Ever the maximizer, Kim is a force in our continuous improvement and pursuit of excellence.

Kim’s left-brain prowess was honed as the head of U.S. Logistics at Copenhagen-based Greenland Contractors (GC), which operates a U.S. Air Force base in Greenland. He is a native of Denmark, and as a part of his work with GC he lived above the Arctic Circle in Northern Greenland for 15 years. We think that’s pretty cool.

Laura
Steffen

Systems Maven

Laura Steffen

Laura Steffen is the maestro behind the everyday operations of Bracken Leadership, helping to identify invisible system glitches that cause friction and reengineering them so they glide with ease. Her unique perspective on the world helps all of us at Bracken Leadership see and grasp opportunities without fear of failure, which translates into a better experience for our partners and customers.

Laura’s background and skillset are tailor-made for Bracken Leadership. With a passion for continuous process improvement and an MBA in Sustainable Business, her years of experience in project management and as a business coach are a perfect complement to our team and culture. We couldn’t be happier that she’s here.
