Sunny Widmann: Director at NAS, certified coach, nationally recognized facilitator and leadership program designer.

As a coach, I am passionate about helping leaders live out their values at work, contributing to healthier workplace cultures, more powerful relationships and higher performing teams. I partner with clients – from entrepreneurs to executive leaders – to work through transitions and establish a clear vision for the future.

My love of coaching stems from my over ten years of experience as a nationally recognized facilitator and designer of learning experiences. In these capacities, I’ve seen firsthand how deep listening and thoughtful process can create “aha!” moments that transform lives.

This is the same approach I bring to my coaching. Through our work together, my clients have:

  • Found the courage to advance racial equity in their organizations
  • Addressed and managed imposter syndrome to lead with confidence
  • Created a vision for a new career path – and taken action in that direction

I’ve had the honor of working with hundreds of leaders in the arts and culture sector over my time as Director at NAS. In this role, I’ve co-designed leadership programs with institutions such as Harvard Business School, University of Michigan – Ross School of Business, Stanford Graduate School of Business and University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Social Impact Strategy.

Given my vocation, it’s no surprise that learning and growth are two of my deepest held values. My degrees are from Butler University and American University, with additional training from the Interaction Institute for Social Change, Race Forward, Equity in the Center and the NAS partner institutions listed above. I integrate the many frameworks and tools I’ve learned on this journey into my coaching to offer more value to my clients.

I am a member of the International Coach Federation with an anticipated accreditation date of July 2021, pursuing my training through the NAS Leadership Coaching Training program and Goldvarg Consulting Group.
