Summer Camp For Stressed Out Managers Who Want To Keep Great People On Their Teams
If you’re anything like the other management experts I talk with me, you’re probably done with:
It doesn’t have to be this way!
You can learn how to manage your team with integrity and easy, get great results, and retain your best employees.
And here's the real problem - 70% of your team's success depends on YOU. You heard me – your team's success depends on y-o-u.
Managers excel when they:

Is Kish Camp Right for You?
Here’s What You’ll Get:
Let’s get right to it. The new budget is ready.
Operational planning is underway. Things are moving so now is the time to light your own leadership fire and hone your management skills.
You know as leaders we are always looking for ways to help our staff, but then we forget about ourselves. Ever done that?
You’ve gotten so busy (and good) at finding ways to transform processes, build new programs, and improve techniques that you don’t focus on you. Each year you read 10 new books (okay you skim them and listen to the audiobook) to move your business forward, and you learn a great deal of new concepts. Yet, OVER HALF of what you planned as you sat up until midnight is NEVER implemented because where is the TIME? Deep Sigh.
I was you. You may not believe it, but I was definitely where you are right now. You’re excited to be in a management role and enjoy the promotion you deserved. You have your degree and certifications, and the bookshelf in your office is filled with every title “they” told you you needed to become a fabulous manager. BUT...something is happening. The words from the books aren’t translating to team success and you’re frustrated. You’re fumbling to handle colleague to colleague power struggles, you’re trying to teach your next level directors how to become managers, and you still have a load of staff development you need to implement. I know all about this. I was you.
Camp Out with Me this Summer!
How Does KishCamp Work? Well this is a virtual summer camp so you can camp out (read - unplug) with me from the comfort of your home, favorite coffee shop, or hammock in your backyard.
You’ll receive your camp guide, your campers badge and access and then you can pack your bags (pen, pad, tablet, highlighters and one of those big camping mugs too).
Camp is broken into two parts: Camp Sessions and Camp Fires. Camp Sessions are where we gather live for our deep dive into a common trouble spot for today’s busy and tired people managers. Camp Fires are where we gather to practice what we learned.
During your camp experience, we will go DEEP on 4 key areas of managing people well.
DELEGATING TO WIN
How to Delegate for Your Sanity (and results). You’ll learn how to hurdle the challenges of delegating well and tools that will support you as a manager and your team doing the work
Dealing with Performance - Crucial Conversations
Having conversations about personality conflicts and performance issues is tough stuff. You’ll learn how to navigate even the most challenging situations with ease
TEAM PLANNING + DEVELOPMENT
It’s easy to just ready.set.go. You’ll learn how to plan for your teams development so that their professional aspirations and your business needs lineup and they will grow in their roles
Terrible meetings ruin lives. Never have a useless meeting again. You’ll learn how to plan meetings your team will actually attend and how to get the most out of meetings you don’t run.
We will have 4 sessions during your camp week and a camp guide that’ll make your trip to camp as fun as it was when you were a kid.
I’m a woman with a sweet tooth so I have a TREAT for you during this Summer Camp for Manager Masters!
Let’s have SMORES together! ----->
We will Strategize, Map, Organize, Refresh, Energize, & Solidify your management plan!
Meet your Camp Director
I’m Kishshana Palmer, CFRE and I am a management and leadership consultant, trainer and coach. I love managing people, teaching others how to manage people and I’m damn good at it. It’s my jam!
I’ve spent the last 22+ years as a chief executive working at some amazing organizations. And I’ve managed over 80+ people across 7 teams zig zagging the U.S. I’ve coached thousands more people on becoming better managers and leaders and my work is just getting started. I’m a certified Clifton Strengths Coach, Certified Board Governance Trainer, Q3 Leadership Coach, Enneagram and Human Design enthusiast and relationship aficionado.
My management and leadership skills are hard won. I’ve seen some things, y’all. And I’ve done some things too. Along the way I realized I picked up a unique set of skills. Here are a few:
I can teach anything. I mean it. Give me the content and a few hours and I’ll have even your most resistant employees singing my tune.
I know how to coach. High performers? Check! Middle of the road folks with potential? Yep! Disengaged and fighting to stay with it? Ummmm Hmmmm - them too.
I can spot your unique strengths, pull them out of you, teach you how to access them so you can excel at work (and not flip tables!)
Difficult employees are the peanut butter to my jelly. While I’m at it, so are difficult boards. I don’t know why; but I can handle even your toughest curmudgeon
I develop amazing managers annnnnnnd some amazing leaders.
