    Meet Your Instructor

    With a decade of experience in People Operations in the corporate world, a Masters in Organizational Management, and a thriving online business with a remote team, I am no stranger to the sensitive issues involved in the human side of running a business. There's a lot to learn from hiring, onboarding, training and managing the performance of over 500 employees for a multimillion dollar business. The good news is, I learned it all so you don't have to.

    What Our Students Are Saying:

    I would recommend PMF to Founders and CEOs who are growing their team and really want a safe place to talk about management. While you may have been a leader in your company for a while, managing a team may be new and having an environment you can learn how to handle conflict, coach and create a culture that reflects the values of your company is powerful. It is worth your time having these conversations!

    Abigail Pumphrey | @bossproject

    PMF was so helpful for our small team. Kira taught us how to truly care & connect with our employees so we can be the best managers we can be. We truly learned how to have difficult conversations, create meaningful boundaries and be better communicators. I'd highly recommend PMF for every business owner or manager out there!

    PMF gave me so much confidence in my management. The way Kira organized and presented the content was so relevant - I finally felt like I was getting a comprehensive leadership and management curriculum with how she structured it, instead of just learning management lessons from the trial and error. I'm going to continue to revisit this content as I continue to grow as a manager. It's priceless to me.

    Megan Baker | @megkco

    I would recommend PMF to new managers and seasoned managers, alike. The support that it offers + having a community of people to talk and brainstorm with when you face new employee situations is unparalleled. PMF helped me gain confience to be a transparent and authentic leader and trust my intuition. If you're looking for a solution around navigating management life, look no further!

    Paris Hanvey | @fearlessCEO

    I'd never managed a team before starting my own, and I was always nervous that things were working out because I got lucky - not because I was a good leader. Going through PMF helped me learn from other entrepreneurs and new leaders who were going through the same thing, and working on our management styles and leadership skills helped me feel more confident in my ability to lead any team!

    Haley Johnson | @propegy

    As an online business owner who went from art school, to corporate, to running my own business, and suddenly "managing" a team of 5 employees - I was over my head with what it actually meant to manage a team in a way that supported everyone. Taking PMF helped me to confidently step into this new role as a CEO and empower others to lead and manage on my team as well. I was able to bridge the gap between my values and vision for our company, and what would actually be supportive for our team as they were onboarded and grew their roles.
