Brendalyn King, M.Ed, PCC, works with self-starters, educators, managers, and business entrepreneurs. She specializes in expanding leadership capacity to increase performance and enhance presence for achieving balance in life.
Brendalyn describes herself as “an old-soul millennial, coming from a lineage of strong, women teachers.” Her great-aunt and grandmother were both educators. Her grandmother earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees in the 40s and early 50s.
Brendalyn’s commitment to entrepreneurship is rooted in the legacies of many black men in her family, who “passed down the persistence and grit I exercise today in all pursuits,” she continues.
As director of programs and strategic partnerships at Bhavana Learning Group, Brendalyn manages its training and development programs and cultivates partnerships with organizations. Her work establishes training and development programs, practice fields, and learning dialogues rooted in deep listening, unlearning, and presence.
Specializing in innovative “fulfillment structures” and integrating contemplative practices. Brendalyn works with professionals to increase capacity for leadership and collaboration. She is committed to supporting high achievers in unlearning habitual energy to create space for emergence.
As a Leadership Coach and trainer, Brendalyn employs generative language tools and practices to increase individual performance and cultivate presence that aligns purpose and meaning for her clients.
