Workshops and Speaking


LoveYourWorkNew research has proven what we’ve all (secretly) suspected to be true:

When we are happy, we do better work.

We’re more creative, more collaborative, and more productive.

12 – 37% more productive, to be exact.



That’s why – when companies book me to lead a workshop for their teams – I focus on what it takes to cultivate happiness + deep satisfaction, both at work + at home.

Because when your employees feel happy + whole, the entire fabric of your company is stronger.

I lead half-day and full-day workshops at non-profits, universities and for-profit companies in the Twin Cities metro – and I’m willing to travel for the right opportunity, as well.


Kendra was one of the keynote speakers at a half-day training we sponsored. Overall, she brought incredible energy and fantastic content to her program. Prior to the presentation, Kendra worked closely with us to ensure the complete success of our program. She was very knowledgeable about the topic area and readily offered suggestions for creating the best possible presentation. In the end, she provided a program that exceeded the expectations of both our organization and the audience. It really was a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend Kendra as a keynote speaker.

My most-requested topics are …

:: How to run an unstoppable team.

:: How to fall back in love with your job + avoid “career divorce court.”

:: “Having what matters, not having it all”: a new paradigm for work / life balance.

:: Women’s well-being: When women feel better, everyone does better.

:: The sweet spot: how to align what matters to you with what matters to your employer.


My workshops are lively and interactive – think: one part life coaching, one part TED Talk, paired with on-the-spot exercises + worksheets to drive the messages home. My intention is always to leave people uplifted, inspired, and armed with practical tools to live + work differently.


To chat about booking a workshop, send a note to kendra@kendrabrodin.com and tell me:

“When I look at my company / department, the biggest problem I see right now is _____________.”


Tell me what’s happening, and I’ll write back + recommend a specific workshop (or course of action) for your team.


I look forward to hearing from you and supporting you.



lisa-dimonteI co-presented a keynote presentation with Kendra at a CLE, and I enjoyed every minute. I found Kendra to not only have a depth of understanding about her topic, but also a delivery style that was accessible, easy to understand, and completely enjoyable to watch. Kendra’s energy is contagious, and she cares deeply about making sure her audience understands and can use the material she presents. I hope to share the stage with her again sometime very soon!
