KASA means ‘umbrella’ in Japanese.
An umbrella provides shelter and protection.
In Zen Buddhism, a KASA allows one to travel undistracted.
This KASA brings those ideals into the modern world
LENORE CHAMPAGNE BEIRNE
I am a leadership coach and partner at KASA.
My mission is to drive positive transformation in companies, industries, people and communities.
Businesses scale with our capacity to lead. Having lead and worked with startups and social entrepreneurs for over 10 years, I support founders as their coach. Together we grow their leadership by aligning themselves with their highest and best qualities, creating greater results and deeper fulfillment.
When I’m not spending time with brilliant founders, you will find me in Brooklyn with my husband and daughter.
