Christina Benty, MA


Christina Benty, MA is a speaker, facilitator, published author and a performance coach for governing bodies and senior management teams who want to develop a culture of high performance. Her superpower is that she can deliver intellectual content with energy and enthusiasm. As former Mayor for the Town of Golden, her leadership journey forced her to face her own resistance to uncertainty and discomfort. Now she uses her lived experience to help others develop their own leadership muscles, welcome curiosity into discomfort and expose the stories that keep us out of partnership and out of collaboration. She does it in the political arena where power dynamics, hierarchies, and competitive ‘us and them’ thinking is a risk to all of us.

Christina has over 16 years’ experience on numerous policy governance boards spanning from health care, government, information technology, and community planning. She is the newest member of the Audit Council for the Auditor General for Local Government. Her passion for good governance is evident in her chosen profession as the owner of Strategic Leadership Solutions, a consulting firm designed to assist teams in building a culture of excellence in leadership and governance.

In addition to her lived experience in the political arena, she studied political science for her undergrad and completed her MA in Leadership at Royal Roads University. She is a certified Power + Systems Organizational Workshop Trainer, an experiential learning methodology designed to expose and transform system blindness. Christina has developed and facilitated numerous governance/asset management/service delivery education sessions and roundtable discussions. She has worked across the country informing, educating and engaging local governments on roles and responsibilities as well as sustainable service delivery challenges and opportunities. Christina uses a variety of methodologies to stimulate group dialogue. She focuses on the importance of building a common language and understanding that allows local governments to address their complex issues in a collaborative manner.

Christina is passionate about internal and external leadership development, organizational culture and change management.  She believes in the importance of cultivating leaders who lead from the inside out. After her wealth of time spent living within the world of local government, she recognizes the need for relevant coaching and consulting to assist teams and individuals in understanding their roles to achieve their goals.  Check out Christina’s TEDX Talk on Leadership here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmDN0PLHZHk
