Meet Coach K

DSC00314 3.40.15 PM.jpg

    Hey, I’m Kalyela Josephs (they/she) best known as Coach K, I’m an LGBTQ+ Coach, Speaker, Wellbeing Advocate and founder of QueeronPurpose Coaching. 


    Being 'Who I Am' in both the workplace and in my spiritual life was a challenge I initially perceived as a barrier rather than a strength. Early in my career, I was told that my intersectional identity as a Black Latin Queer Woman, coupled with my education from a Historically Black College, would hinder my success in corporate spaces. 


    Similarly, I was taught that spirituality and queerness couldn't coexist. In response, I internalized this narrative, dimming my light and distancing myself from LGBTQ+ ERGs and communities to 'fit in'. However, after years of feeling isolated and stagnant in my career, I realized that my truth resided in embracing every part of my identity. 


    This revelation propelled me forward, inspiring me to found QueeronPurpose Coaching LLC, where I am dedicated to helping the LGBTQ+ community thrive both professionally and spiritually. Through coaching sessions, workshops, and advocacy initiatives, I prioritize inclusivity and diversity, fostering environments where everyone can thrive. 


    My work extends to supporting LGBTQ+ ERG leaders,  DEI practitioners, and allies effecting change in Fortune 500 companies. These change-makers are on the frontlines of policy change, advocating for equitable healthcare and Trans Rights, all with the aim of co-creating workplaces where LGBTQ+ professionals feel seen and heard. 


    It's been a source of gratitude to assist thousands of Queer Leaders and professionals in finding authenticity and purpose in their leadership journeys and beyond.
