Eric Kohner

What I bring to you is a brave wisdom born from the streets of New York and grown through years of coaching experience with individuals, executives and teams.


Eric is an internationally recognized executive coach and keynote speaker. He founded eKCosystem, a global corporate training company dedicated to bringing HUMAN BEING into business, because “in today’s highly competitive world, the new hard skills are the heart skills.” eKCosystem is successfully bringing the heart skills to high-level executives in global organizations such as the US Navy, Capgemini, and ING just to name a few.

Eric is a pioneer of the coaching profession. Eric enjoys icon status in the business due, in part, to his fearlessness in calling people forth for the sake of their learning and leadership. A catalyst for leadership excellence across cultures, Eric has delivered training programs on five continents.

Prior to becoming a coach and leadership trainer, Eric worked for 20 years in the entertainment industry appearing on stage as well as in film and television. Eric has broken new ground in leadership development by applying his acting expertise to his work.

Eric was born in NYC and was a taxi driver in the Big Apple early on in his acting career. He still carries a New York edge from those days, which he uses in service of his clients’ transformation. Eric currently lives in Pasadena, California with his wife and daughter.

“I can confidently tell you that I consider eKCosystem as one of the 
best companies for culture building and leadership development.”
