Amii Barnard-Bahn's picture

A former Fortune Global 50 executive, I'm a C-suite coach who specializes in accelerating the success of legal and compliance executives and their teams. My clients include Adobe, Gap, Chegg, Boehringer Ingelheim, Lyft, FedEx, and Bank of the West.
A contributor to Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, and Compliance Week, I previously shaped company culture and strategic initiatives as an executive (CAO, Chief Compliance Officer, and Chief HR Officer) at Fortune Global 50 companies such as McKesson and Allianz. I advise organizations on how leaders create ethical workplaces -- exceptional cultures that out behave and outperform the competition.

Forbes was kind enough to call me “one of the top coaches for legal and compliance executives.”

I'm a Fellow at the Harvard Institute of Coaching and member of Marshall Goldsmith's MG100 Coaches, which brings together the world's top executive coaches. Our mission is to inspire, develop and energize leaders for the future.

I guest lecture at UC Berkeley, Stanford and have extensive experience presenting (virtually and in person) to corporations, industry groups and associations such as the California Chamber of Commerce, Georgetown Alumni, The Conference Board, Association of Corporate Counsel and SHRM affiliates.

I earned my law degree with honors from Georgetown, BA from Tufts, and am a member of the California State Bar.

I work to ensure that women have a platform for their unique challenges and perspectives. A lifelong diversity advocate, I testified for passage of California's SB826 and Washington state's SB6037, the first laws in the U.S. requiring corporate boards to include women. Outside of my business, I'm active in supporting the arts as a way to bring people together and bridge differences to cultivate deeper understanding.

A graduate of the Hudson Institute of Coaching, I’m a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coach Federation.
