About Us

Tammy Krings
Tammy Krings, CEO, The Conversations That Matter

The Conversations That Matter works with leaders and teams who want to strengthen how they align and engage — in a whole new way, at a time when we are starving for true connection. The Conversations That Matter provides an integrated approach that sustains leadership and team change – well beyond traditional training. We know that training alone does not cause the shifts we desire.

The Conversations That Matter is impacting the workplace in a time that desires and requires the space to pause, reflect, and refine in order to gain clarity in the vision, alignment, and execution of their strategy. Her expertise includes program development, recruiting, training, facilitation, leadership coaching and change management. With a reputation for building collaborative environments, breaking down communication barriers and helping people challenge their assumptions, we are passionate about engaging people in the conversations that matter.

The Conversations That Matter model came from our founder, Tammy Krings, recognizing a need in the workplace from hearing her clients discuss wanting to have breakthrough conversations, but just not knowing where to start. This is where The Conversations That Matter can help.

Tammy believes that we always have a choice and that timing matters. Speaking truth is her purpose and building up the community is her passion. She craves a spiritual depth, being courageous, and taking risks. The greatest act of courage occurs when we are most vulnerable and where we can create a renewed purpose together. The more we embrace bravery, the more we live our lives to the fullest.

She has experience working with all kinds of industries including non-profits, agri-business, government, education, and corporations. No matter what industry or company she’s helping, Tammy is there to guide leaders and teams to make significant shifts in how they show up, do the work, and relate to each other. Teamwork is the #1 competitive advantage of any organization. You either make a strategic intention to work as a team or you struggle to compete in the marketplace.
