Who We Are

Resonance Rising is an empowerment-based, social-justice oriented, and collaboration-minded professional coaching and consulting organization. We meet leaders and teams at the intersection of critical thinking and spirituality.

What We Do

Resonance Rising specializes in leadership coaching, team coaching, strategic planning, culture change, and facilitating group experiences, trainings and retreats. We specialize in working with non-profits and small businesses.

Why We Do It

Leadership is sacred work. We envision a world of radically aligned leaders who have embraced a slower, more intentional and heart centered approach to their work that centers their own well being and the lived experiences of those they serve.

How We Do It

We start by unearthing the root challenge. We support, guide, and empower community organizers and leaders by honoring inner wisdom and the power of strong relationships. We infuse our work with ritual, mind/body practices and strategy.

We are committed to your growth and expansion. 

Kori Stephens, MPH, ACC

Lead Strategist, Facilitator, Coach, Akashic Records Consultant

I  am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, human rights advocate, dreamer, planner and inspired by all forms of human expression.

I belong to two amazing little boys who are growing up too quickly and who have the most wild, adventurous and creative souls. I love seeing the world through their eyes and how they have truly become my most loved and profound teachers in my life.

I am dedicated to supporting, guiding and empowering community organizers and leaders by honoring the deep wisdom that we each have within us. This commitment has shown up through my work as a birth and postpartum doula, a nonprofit leader working to build the capacity and resilience of child serving organizations and as an advocate for systems change to create a safer, freer and more equitable world.

 After 11 years serving as a strategic advisor, organizational consultant, trainer, facilitator and leadership coach in the non-profit sector, I founded Resonance Rising in October 2020, with a dream to bring something new and different to the leadership development space.

I believe leadership is sacred work. Leading people is both a responsibility and gift. It requires a deep commitment to personal growth and evolution. Resonant leadership means connecting with people at a heart level, meeting them where they are at, giving just enough guidance to support their growth and then getting out of the way so that they can thrive.

This belief is infused in all we do from coaching, strategic planning, organizational culture work and facilitating group experiences and retreats. I often envision a world of nonprofit leaders who have embraced a slower, more intentional and heart centered approach to their work that centers their own well being and the lived experiences of those they are serving.

I can’t wait for you be a part of our journey and to join our movement.
