Meet Camille

It’s great to meet you!

My name is Camille McKinney and I am the Founder and Principal Executive/Leadership Coach, consultant and speaker at Leveraged Leaders. After decades working in the corporate sector, I launched Leveraged Leaders to close the gap between learning how to lead and BEING a great leader people want to follow.

I am passionate about elevating the impact leaders have on people and organizations. I believe that leadership is an ‘inside job;’ great leadership starts within each of us. My own personal evolution resulted in the creation of a model for developing one’s personal Self-Leadership, which includes six building blocks to explore, embody and express one’s unique leadership brand.

My core values of integrity, courage, creativity and wisdom are the foundation of my coaching approach; I believe that leaders who know and live their values and tap into their strengths, talents and gifts lead others with empathy, confidence and focused intention.  

Before becoming a professional Leadership Coach, I worked for over 25 years as a learning and performance consulting professional in the banking and healthcare industries, where I also led a team of sales training professionals. My commitment to demonstrating effective leadership and empowering my team to be their best resulted in Great Place to Work employee engagement scores of 100% two years in a row! I bring my experience in leadership, Emotional Intelligence, performance consulting and training to support leaders in revealing their personal leadership advantage, both in business and in life.

I have a degree in Business Management, completed Coach U’s Core Essentials and advanced coaching programs, and I am a Certified facilitator for Linkage’s Advancing Women Leaders Academy. I am also a Faculty Member of Linkage’s Women in Leadership Institute. I am active in the Los Angeles International Coaching Federation (ICF) community, holding various Board roles since 2018, including Chapter President in 2020, and am currently their Executive Advisor.

"I came to coaching with a few goals in mind, specifically to increase my capacity given my and my team’s increasing workload, to build my self-confidence in my ability to have crucial conversations, and addressing my tendency to ‘run too lean,’ all impacting my and my team’s ability to achieve our goals.

Since working with Camille, I am clearer on my role as a leader; I am effectively serving my team by empowering them to stretch themselves in their work. I am able to have more effective conversations with my team and colleagues using Camille's communication model. I’m also happier in my work life because I more effectively prioritize my and my team's workload and responsibilities.

I am able to use Camille's coaching and continue to refine my learning over time, as Camille's coaching does not apply to one or two situations; Camille's coaching is adaptive and will be effective for years to come. Thank you Camille. You are a wonderful coach and mentor."
