For nineteen years, Gregg Kendrick was co-owner and CEO of a software technology training firm whose clients were primarily Fortune 500 corporations and federal agencies. Within this business, he brought an awareness of needs-based communication among the staff, and transformed the structure and operation of the business to be a needs-centered culture.
Awed by the potency of that experience, Gregg founded Basileia LLC and has been a full-time consultant and trainer since 2004. Using human needs-based frameworks and processes, such as Nonviolent Communication (NVC), the cultural transformation tools of the Barrett Values Centre, and the Sociocratic Circle method, he supports leaders to activate the human potential of themselves, their teams, and their organization.
His specialty is whole-team facilitated conversations that deepen connection among team members while advancing the team toward its goals. Gregg’s work focuses on developing power — with leaders rather than power-over — teaching a mindset and skill sets that inspire, empower, and build trust among people. Such leaders become more authentic, more empathic, and more grounded as they create cultures of collaboration and purpose.
Gregg’s other key business experience includes serving on several boards of directors of nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and co-managing an investment fund for seven years.
Gregg is a CTT Certified Consultant and a Certified Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) trainer who has facilitated extensive trainings in the United States, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Australia, South Korea, India, and South Africa, including leading International Intensive Trainings (IITs) with Marshall Rosenberg, the founder of NVC. He resides in Charlottesville, Virginia, with his wife and three daughters.
