Our Team

 

Cornelia Cannon Holden, M.Div. is the CEO of Mindful Warrior, which she founded in 2004. Cornelia holds a Masters in comparative religion and contemplative studies from Harvard Divinity School where her program of study also included courses at Harvard Business School on family business management and leadership. Following her tenure with The Bridgespan Group, the non-profit consulting division of Bain & Company, she ran a private, holistic healthcare practice focused on body-centered pastoral counseling and trauma resolution. Cornelia trained the U.S. Women’s Ice Hockey team from 2006 through the 2010 Vancouver Olympics as the team’s mental skills, team building, and leadership development coach. During that time, the team enjoyed unprecedented success achieving its first-ever No. 1 world ranking. Cornelia has lived and worked on a variety of campuses -- Bowdoin, Harvard, Yale, Hotchkiss, Stevenson, the Navajo Nation, and the Olympic Training Center -- which has given her deep, first-hand knowledge of the pressures and privileges of high-performance, intercultural environments. Cornelia also understands elite-level training and commitment: she graduated summa cum laude from Bowdoin College, where she was a NCAA Division II giant slalom ski racing champion and a member of both the varsity tennis and crew teams. Her experience working with people in diverse environments informs her work coaching high-performance executives and their teams through periods of growth and innovation.
