Kyoko Kusama is a bilingual (Japanese and English) executive coach, facilitator and trainer with leadership experience in global financial services and technology. She has held managerial positions in sales, customer service, product management and business administration, and led a corporate-wide culture transformation initiative for a major U.S. bank as the program director for Japan. This pivotal experience ignited her passion for helping leaders and organizations grow towards realizing their unlimited potential.
As an executive coach and facilitator/trainer, Kyoko has worked with global corporations delivering leadership development programs for salespeople, middle managers, and senior leaders. Her management experience in a large matrix organization enables her to relate directly to the issues and challenges faced by her clients, and to help expand their perspectives while guiding them through a process of self-discovery, making conscious choices and taking actions. She is also an active member of a non-profit organization providing career coaching to women to support their career development.
Kyoko is based in Tokyo, though New York is her second home – she grew up in Bayside, Queens and Yonkers, New York. And wherever she travels, she loves visiting local farmers markets and picking up exotic spices and inspirations for her “improvisational cooking.”
