Hi everyone! My name is Rick Kitagawa, and I’m someone who loves helping others build change. (I know, I know, a bit weird for a member of a Dark Art Society, but keep going with it..there’s monsters throughout!).
I’ve struggled (and still struggle) with impostor syndrome, and I know how hard it is to deal with it, so I’ve built a coaching practice called Kaiju Coaching that focuses on wrangling those inner monsters that hold you back from being the person you were meant to be.
I’ve been a part of both amazing, generous communities, as well as toxic, cut-throat organizations. This has led me to focus on trust and how it underpins every aspect of organizational health, so I co-founded Spotlight Trust to empower leaders and organizations to reap the personal and financial rewards of being more trusted.
Besides the work I do in the coaching and consulting space, I create monsters of my own. I design and sculpt art toys, portraits that mix abstraction and figurative paintings, and write both short horror fiction as well as a podcast that mixes all of the above into one amalgamation called the Inner Monster Podcast.
Thanks for stopping by and it’s great to meet you!
