Seattle, Washington

Noralee Severns is an HR Professional who is passionate about coaching, leadership development, seeing people achieve their goals and advancing in their careers. She easily develops relationships that foster the growth and development people are seeking. She has extensive experience in talent acquisition and developing talent, always with a focus on building a great inclusive culture. She says, “It’s all about the people. I get excited watching a person grow and reach new heights that just maybe they didn’t think was possible.

Working with leaders, Noralee sets goals to develop their teams and then sees that happen through coaching and mentoring, which she says has been a highlight of her career. “I quickly establish mutual trust and respect so we are able to identify strategies for achieving results. I’ve worked in technology, public accounting, event planning and coached women in transition.”

She was born and raised in the Pacific NW, attended Central Washington University, and was trained by the International Association of Coaches (IAC).

Coaching training through Compass Enterprise Training Program.

Noralee was my HR Business partner for over 3 years at Concur. She ran HR for a global 200+ person R&D organization. She was key in: manager training, conflict resolution, employee growth plans and coaching, change management. Noralee provided leadership in assimilating employees in a large domestic acquisition, and an international acquisition. She provided key support in launching our Prague office. Noralee is very perceptive, devoted, hard working HR professional, and it was my pleasure to work with her and give her my strongest recommendation.
