I work with organizations that want stress-management strategies to reduce the mess of stress and increase productivity, engagement and wellbeing.

As an Elite Life, Stress-Management and Mindset Master Coach, education is not only a key component of my work – it’s also a personal passion of mine. At the heart of every presentation is my driving message that stress is a mind game. Gone are the days of discussing nutrition, exercise and self-care. Stress is about WHO we are being.

During my presentation, I will reveal the top Stress Personalities and specific stress-management techniques for each one.

My storytelling and how-to approach engages the audience and leaves them with practical strategies that can be implemented immediately.

I will partner with you to tailor my keynote and workshops to ensure your event is a success. Your participants will be equipped and inspired to manage stress in ways that lead to greater engagement with clients and colleagues, increased productivity, and improved wellbeing.

I’ve had the joy of sharing my insights and advice at speaking engagements for organizations like PBS Distribution, MOCPA, BOMA, St Louis Society of Association Executive, Rockwood School District, Fort Zumwalt School District, Classic Travel ConnectionsProfessional Women’s Alliance, Little Black Book: Women in Business, Fearless Women, Chambers, Rotary Clubs and more.

If you’d like to book me to speak to your team or organization, just reach out! I’d love to discuss which topics would be most helpful for your group and goals – and can even create a custom presentation just for your organization.

My Experience Working

with Kelli Risse

“Kelli has been helping me work on myself for almost a year. I was first drawn to Kelli because I was living in what I call “overwhelm”. I was not focused, my boundaries were fluid, and I was stressed. I needed a life reset! Kelli helped me to be more focused on the things that are most important to me in my personal life and my business. AND the most amazing thing that has resulted in my weekly sessions with Kelli, is that I am now living out a reality that was a lifelong dream in my business. I had wanted to create an extension of my business for many, many years, but never allowed myself to move past the dreaming stage. Kelli helped me to move past my negative self-talk and lack of confidence in myself. She helped me move forward into making those dreams a reality.I’m grateful for Kelli look forward to many more dreams, action plans and the results of those two things coming together to create the life I want.”

-Christen P., Travel Agency Owner, Business Strategist, Wife, Mother

“As a new mom who passionately loves her career, I found it hard to prioritize work, family, and taking any time for myself. I would go from a serving heart all day at work, to pouring all I have left into my family, and by every evening I was more than running on fumes. Kelli helped take my overwhelming and drowning feelings, unpack them, and create a game plan that was manageable and achievable. Now I have time in my day for me, remain calm in stressful situations, have more energy, and am free from emotional stress that was weighing me down. Working with Kelli was incredible and life changing!”

-Amy W., Chiropractor, mom, wife

“Working with Kelli has allowed me to reset from a life consumed and controlled by stress to a life where I’m learning and growing every day. The small instrumental changes I’ve made are making a HUGE impact in my everyday life. I am healthier physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Now, I am able to stay calm, manage stress in appropriate ways, be more productive, choose carefully what is worth my time and what is not, constantly complete routine tasks so my household runs more efficiently, and better care for my mind, body, and spirit. For years, my life felt like I would surface from insane stress, gasp for breath, and immediately be pulled back under into more stress. Now, I’m learning to swim with my head above water with a calm, steady and empowered stroke!”

-Amy R., Professional, mom, wife

“My breakthrough session was unlike anything I had ever experienced. Kelli’s demeanor, professionalism, and empathetic nature was so welcomed and appreciated. Her skillfulness of sitting one-on-one with me with only palpable love and her confidence in my ability to take the tools she was revealing to me and use them for my own good was so empowering. If you feel like you’ve tried everything and you want a proactive plan for growth in your life and/or your business, I would highly recommend this session.”
