I've worked with Kevin and his team for six years, spanning two companies and a variety of roles. Kevin has played a pivotal role in fostering my growth as a leader and a member of the executive team. He has guided me to actively improve my communication and leadership skills, while capitalizing on my inherent strengths to cultivate an authentic and confident approach. Kevin's honest and candid method, coupled with a remarkably high EQ and true care and compassion, has positioned him as one of my most trusted advisors. Among the standout coaching experiences that I've had was a full executive team coaching module led by Kevin. This direct intervention in team dynamics led to swift and remarkable performance improvements in our team. I enthusiastically recommend this to any executive leadership team aiming for optimal and integrated performance, countering the isolated efforts that often surface.

Kevin was introduced by our Board. After six months of coaching, my growth as a leader was significant, I felt more confident in my own skin as I led the organization, and my Board was impressed. I then had Kevin coach the leadership team as a whole. Kevin clarified the connection between our leadership and our culture and made each team member a stronger leader. We’ve become a high performing team as a result, and this makes us more effective as an organization. He is a true and trusted adviser.
