As Founder and CEO of Positive Disruption, Kim LaFever specializes in working with teams in transition. By leveraging the power of team performance tools, the latest research on the science of change, and her leadership experience within Fortune 100 companies, she helps teams navigate change faster, with less stress, more resilience, and better results.
Kim founded Positive Disruption to work with organizations who need to restructure in the face of a rapidly changing consumer and employee marketplace. This may be for a global company, one department in a larger company, or a fast-growing start-up that needs to take off. Her goal was to provide clients with tools and training to help teams improve their quality and speed of delivery, communicate better, move through change more quickly, and stop the madness of “Groundhog Day” where teams seem to have the same meetings over and over again without really getting anywhere.
As a motivational and keynote speaker, Kim delivers presentations and training workshops on communication, leadership, transition and change to large corporations, professional organizations, athletic teams, and community groups.
Kim’s past experience includes working for a premier, global sports and apparel brand based in the Pacific Northwest, where she specialized in helping to transform their global project management, strategy and operations, and retail technology organizations.
Kim holds certifications in project and change management from the Project Management Institute and PROSCI and has been a project management and business analysis practice leader for multiple organizations during her career.
Kim has a BA in Journalism and Business from Indiana University. She loves living in Portland, Oregon, one of the weirdest cities in America, with her husband, cats and the happiest dog in the world.
