"Kristal is dedicated, professional, and always willing to go out of her way to provide excellent support for her students." 

- Nadira Charaniya, Ed.D., Educator & Administrator

| Bio

I have worked in the learning and organizational development space for over 15 years helping clients engage people, apply processes, and implement technology to improve human and organizational performance. My expertise includes developing strategy and executable tactics in the areas of leadership development, talent development, succession planning, diversity & inclusion, performance management, and employee engagement.


A teacher by trade and a thought leader by temperament, I bring great value to the partnerships and relationships I've built over the course of my career. I launched the Kristal Walker Brand (formally 3C's Training Group) alongside my full-time career to design and develop soft skills and compliance training for small and medium-size companies. For my name sake, my goal is to be known as a Knowledgeable Resources in Strategic Training and Leadership. 

My andragogical approach to learning and development is to use a mixture of reading, writing, role-playing, and discussion to explore issues and relate them to the lives of my learners and myself. A basic premise for any course that I teach is that both my learners and I bring to the learning environment a wealth of knowledge from our personal and professional experiences. Those experiences coupled with empathy, transparency, and accountability to transform skills into performance is typically the ground upon which my courses yield the highest return on investment for everyone involved.

I earned an undergraduate degree in human services, a graduate degree in management and organizational leadership, and a doctorate of management degree in organizational leadership. I'm a Certified Professional in Training Management™ and pride myself on developing the next generation of leaders using sound evidence-based curricula. I'm also certified in analyzing Caliper Essentials and PDP Assessment data, which allows me to provide expert coaching and strategy in building talent from selection through succession. When it's all said and done, I get to be the wife to my loving and supportive husband, and the mother to my amazing children.
