Stacie Riffert

Empowered Leadership, LLC



Stacie believes that you can be both a successful business leader AND have the time to show up for the people and things that matter most in your life. She believes that working parents should feel something more fulfilling than always “busy”! Stacie helps business leaders to lose the guilt, stop the overwhelm, and build businesses they are proud of.


She specializes in helping business leaders remove stressors, manufacture more time, empower their teams and generate more revenue, with the ultimate goal of creating more time and energy to live their best life. She believes that we can find better, smarter ways of working so that we can be more present for the people and things that matter most to us.


A FocalPoint certified business and executive coach since 2017, Stacie is also a licensed facilitator for a host of corporate training programs ranging from leadership to sales to personal development. Stacie is a certified Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and DISC behavioral style practitioner with TTISI. She has worked with businesses of all sizes and industries from small one person operations to non-profits to large corporations, like Davey Tree and Michelin Tire.


Prior to starting her coaching practice, Stacie had a successful two-decade career at PepsiCo where she held numerous roles of increasing responsibility, highlighted by leading both a large sales and distribution operation (consisting of 135 people and $25MM in revenue) and a $130MM+ sales team responsible for growing the relationship with Target. She has managed, trained and coached both front-line and professional leaders from all types of backgrounds and experience levels.


She is the recipient of FocalPoint’s Alvin Law Award for coaching, PepsiCo’s President’s Ring of Honor recipient, and was recognized as a Top Woman in Grocery by Progressive Grocer Magazine.
