Pamela Kennedy

As Principal of PKennedy and Associates since 1986, Dr. Kennedy’s passion and primary contributions are in leadership – in the profoundly personal connections and competencies required to successfully lead individuals, teams and organizations. Pamela builds strong, enduring relationships with her clients, who benefit from her twenty-five-plus years of executive and consulting experience. Pamela’s earlier background includes co-founding a Houston-based business consulting firm, later becoming Vice President and a member of the Board of Directors, and serving as Senior Consultant with the American Productivity and Quality Center, continuing over time to be a consulting resource for the Center.

Pamela’s central focus is coaching executives and teams:

  • Optimizing leadership influence and success – relationship, strategic and executive,
  • Building, leading and managing extraordinary teams,
  • Enhancing “live” individual and team capabilities,
  • Facilitating organizational transformation.
With an ability to remain impartial yet fiercely focused on results, her style is both direct and supportive -- she has been called an “iron fist in a velvet glove.”

In addition to her consulting, Dr. Kennedy served as Director of Team Learning, Senior Lecturer and Adjunct faculty member in Organizational Behavior at the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Management, Rice University. In that capacity, she developed and led a group of EMBA alumni volunteers who facilitated and mentored the EMBA teams. Pamela continues to coach EMBA students to maximize effectiveness and performance. Dr. Kennedy has worked with a diverse and extensive list of business, government, union and non-profit organizations -- including boards, CEO’s, management, union leaders and staff. She has consulted in industries such as oil, banking, education, healthcare, architecture and design, airline, chemical, paper, steel, food processing and furniture.
