Welcome to Turning Points Leaders Community

A Community Committed to Changing the World Through Exemplary Leadership

About Me

My name is Dr. Kristen Albert, and I'm the President of Turning Points LLC. I'm an executive and leadership coach who believes that exemplary leadership is the only thing that is going to make a difference in the challenges that our communities, our nation, and our world face every. single. day. And so I dedicate my work to developing people in all the ways that enable them to live their most satisfying lives and do their best work. When people are empowered to bring the best of who they are alongside their true passions and giftedness, they are practically unstoppable. And not only that, they inspire others to do the same. 

I believe in the power of communities of practice, and (in this space) design and offer spaces that cultivate human imagination and collaboration to support folks in tackling the messy problems we face every day. 

So what qualifies me to do this work? 

I'm a proven leader. In fact,  in 2021 I was rated in the 99th Percentile in the two categories most highly correlated to leadership effectiveness according to the research of Bill Adams and Bob Anderson,  and between the 80th and 99th percentiles in all of the other qualities positively correlated to leadership effectiveness. (My rating comes from a comparison of my results against more than 275,000 global leaders.) I think a picture paints a thousand words -- the better the leader, the more green shading in the top half of the circle. I won't bore you with more details, but am happy to share more if you're interested. 

What are my formal credentials?

  • I earned a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Delaware (2006)
  • I've been a leadership coach since 2012. Prior to that, I enjoyed a 29 year career in education.
  • I am a certified ontological coach from the Newfield Network (2013)
  • I am certified to administer and interpret the Leadership Circle Profile (2021) -- aka that fancy circle data you see in the photo above.
  • I am practitioner of the cutting edge practice of Positive Intelligence (PQ), developed by Sherzad Shamine. 
  • I hold an M.Ed. in Counseling from Shippensburg University of PA
  • I am Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion focused in my work.
