Kenneth Hahn is from the US and currently lives in Northampton, MA. He has over 30 years of experience across almost every continent on the globe, in roles as diverse as the countries he has worked in.
Kenneth holds an MBA from Yale University and a BA in Sociology and Economics from Harvard University. In his early career, Kenneth studied and consulted with worker-owned companies, focusing on the use of ESOPs to foster greater employee participation in managerial decision-making.
In 1990, Kenneth started his own adventure travel company, which over the next 22 years sent thousands of travelers to Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean Basin. In 2012, Kenneth sold the business to begin a consultancy practice, working with industry leaders in areas of strategic planning, hiring practices, marketing and branding, and talent acquisition.
Not wanting to do the same thing for 25 years (and just shy of this mark), Kenneth decided to chart a new course. In 2016, he was ordained as a rabbi and now works as a chaplain in a major trauma center in Massachusetts, supporting patients and their families as they face life-threatening medical challenges.
Kenneth has found that being with a dying patient or a business client is not all that different; in both instances, what is called for is presence, compassion, an inquisitive mind, and a recognition that the patient or client already knows exactly what they need to know. Kenneth creates an environment where the inner wisdom of the client is both given permission and encouraged to emerge.
Kenneth is a husband of almost 30 years and the father of two adult children. He marvels at how amazing it is to maintain a relationship with all three of his family members, even as they continue to change and mature. Kenneth is an avid cyclist and loves to ride his bike several times a week, usually long distances.
