A Note from CEO Craig Wiley

From the time Transcend was founded more than 20 years ago, my passion has been to create a space where CEOs and executives could experience transformation for themselves and the people they lead, unleashing their full potential in the business world as well as in their lives outside the office. Our commitment to delivering excellence is rooted in years of working with, and listening to, the specific challenges faced by our clients. 

Born out of those challenges is a suite of solutions that we use to drive real transformation and solve challenges for CEOs and their companies, regardless of business status and industry. My vision is to transform the coaching journey into one that not only helps executives manage the real-time needs of the enterprise but also helps them develop a business skillset across the core competencies that all executives need to reach peak growth and success.

The Transcend Team

Our team is comprised of talented advisors, coaches, communicators, and consultants who are deeply committed and devoted to your success. They draw on years of experience and intensive training in psychology, performance coaching, strategic planning and organizational development to activate transformation.

As a senior strategist and executive coach with extensive consulting and corporate experience in leading teams to excel in challenging environments, I know first-hand what it takes to help senior executives lead during times of hyper-growth, organizational transition, and operational turnarounds. With three decades of experience in leading strategy development and coaching executives to drive elite performing teams to implement ambitious corporate visions and plans, I’m known to have the ability to relate and distill information into concrete, measurable action steps that drive sustainable change. With certifications across the continuum of leadership variables, including emotional intelligence, organizational dynamics, personality traits, and behavioral mindsets, I use a holistic approach to helping leaders and teams crystallize purpose, drive performance, fuel innovation, and accelerate growth.

Kim Stiver

Senior Brand & Business Strategist

Clear and engaging communication with the right people at the right time is one of the most critical aspects of lasting success for executives and the organizations they lead. Without it, workplace cultures crumble, talent look for greener pastures, customers become confused and frustrated, and innovation wanes. As a champion for communication, I am passionate about helping our clients articulate mission and vision, create meaningful and inspiring dialogue, guide expectations, drive change effectively, and execute their strategic roadmap with excellence.
