People won't remember what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.


My name is Dr. Kortney Peagram and I am here to support you. I hear and see you. Running a business, changing careers, and raising children are full time jobs and, often, we are navigating in the dark. Let me be your sounding board, your support. I have been working in schools and corporations for over 11 years, building leadership skills, interpersonal skills, and social skills.

My focus areas are:

  • Emotional intelligence
  • Social emotional learning
  • Social skills
  • Bullying in school and the workplace
  • Kindness and empathy
  • Communication, trust, and conflict management
  • Group management and facilitation skills
  • Goal setting
  • Personal branding
  • Understanding technology and social media

My goal is to help you build your confidence, learn how to best manage different situations, have tools to develop kindness and empathy, and work on finding your balance. I love my work and I want to share all that I have learned in my podcast. I talk about strategies I have learned, books I have read, podcasts that add value, and I interview experts to give you more insight.

Working and balancing parenthood is a daily challenge and this is the place

to be your true self. Come join our tribe and let’s have a conversation, share a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and talk “real talk” about being a working mom or parent.

Sending you lots of love and positivity,

Dr. Kortney Peagram

We Have a Lot of Work to Do: Coaching Through Pain and Uncertainty

In the past few weeks, I have been trying to figure out how can I best serve the Black and African Americans without making it about me or trying to be the “One Upper” of the group. I have worked on keeping my ego at the door, brining to light my subconscious biases, and taking a step back to foster my strengths to help versus hinder #BlackLivesMatter.

A Love Letter to Humankind

Dear Humankind, As I look over the news, my heart aches from the pain and violence. My anger rises for the injustices going on in this country. My thoughts race of what I can do to help, what we all can do to help. With my experience and work as a Bully Teacher and Educational Consultant, violence will never combat hate. Anger and aggression won’t reunite us. But can I blame people for fighting back, being angered, yelling and screaming? I don’t. I see that things are no longer working or really have not been working at all. Black men

Keynote Speaking Engagement

The speaking engagements are interactive and customized to the audience. I work on developing stories that add value and new insight, I bring in content and activities to get your audience engaged, and I have strategies to get people motivated and empowered. My goal is to provide a message that has a deeper meaning to your organization, group, or school. I work on fostering connections during Keynotes by using my energy and passion. Below are some themes I did at past keynote engagements:

  • Building your career
  • Networking and building a support system
  • Cyberbullying and social media
  • Engaging your audience with experiential learning
  • Finding your passion
  • Building your dream business

Parent Coaching

These sessions are designed to help parents build healthy and strong relationships with their teenagers. We work on conflict management strategies, managing emotions, addressing challenging conversations, building confidence and self-esteem, recognizing bullying, and social media. We work on trust, communication, and breaking down the walls between the teenager and parent. Each session is between 30-60 minutes.

In the session, we go over strategies, tools, and talk about the best way to implement them. As your coach, I do email check-ins and give you recaps to keep you on track. I use leadership models and team building concepts to help you connect and grow with your child. I create a road map to help you navigate these years and give you the support you need. I use positive psychology, leadership models, and team building concepts.
