About Our Facilitator:  

Gwen Kinsey

Gwen Kinsey, President of GK Network helps transformational leaders incorporate innovative leadership systems and tools so their organizations are adaptive as well as effective.

Gwen believes that “our capacity to stay relevant into the future comes from how well we engage others… our ability to collaborate, network for ideas, and facilitate the development and diverse experience of others.” Gwen knows that transformational leaders need more than motivated employees. They need talented people excited by the opportunity to create new solutions.

Before beginning her leadership development practice in 2010, Gwen held progressive sales and top management positions during a 17-year leadership career in the television industry. Her former employer called on her to serve as President and General Manager of 4 of the 10 stations they owned. A key to Gwen’s portability was her strength developing people of all experience levels, building strong teams and innovating digital initiatives.Business highlights include:

  • Innovating digital business models adopted by the group’s other stations.
  • Turning around a poor performing station that increased news ratings, won prestigious journalism awards and subsequently sold for high multiples.
  • Transforming sales teams that beat their market competition by generating more new, local advertising revenue during declining advertising markets.
  • Improving talent recruitment, training, employee engagement, and developing managers who were promoted throughout the company.

Areas of expertise:

·       Seeding innovative work cultures

·       Employee engagement

·       Culture change specifically geared to developing new solutions

Gwen is a certified coach (ACC) by the International Coaching Federation and is a member of the National Speaker’s Association. She is accredited to use emotional social intelligence assessments by the Hay Group in Boston. Gwen is a graduate of Temple University with a BA in Radio, Television and Film.

Resolutionary Thinking

Focusing on solutions. Thinking creatively and tenaciously about outcomes. About what’s in your best interests. Getting matters resolved, so you can get on with what matters to you. That’s resolutionary thinking. And that’s made Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy & Ecker, P.A., one of the largest, most respected law firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

In 1972, Shulman Rogers was founded on a commitment to client service. Today, the firm’s roster of highly skilled attorneys and other dedicated staff members are all guided by that same commitment. A client-first approach. A smart, efficient practice. A relentless focus on problem solving. And an underlying compassion—for our clients and our community. It all adds up to resolutionary thinking. The kind of thinking you can count on from the people of Shulman Rogers.
