Kim was a pleasure to work with. She listened (and heard) what we wanted (and needed) and crafted a day for us that was both productive and fun.

Kim’s insight and guidance is impeccable! During a recent career transition, I began working with Kim to navigate the job market. We initiated our work together by identifying my strengths, discussing how to leverage them during my job search, and how to best build on them. Once we had a concrete base established we progressed into determining my career objectives, and evaluating the types of positions to pursue that matched my goals. The coaching Kim provided kept me focused on being critical of the roles I was evaluating. This focus resulted in multiple offers. I ultimately accepted a fantastic opportunity where I am able to leverage my strengths in a different functional area furthering my professional growth. Kim and I continue to work together due to the high premium I place on her deep expertise in team building, talent management and focus on strength building. Her coaching style is engaging, thought provoking and supportive… you know she has your best interests at heart! I am proud to have her as a Coach and Friend!

— George, General Manager
One of the things I appreciate most about Kim’s coaching is that she is one of those people that relentlessly tries to call out the good in me and believes in me more than I sometimes believe in myself. She is consistently pouring into me as my coach...putting me in situations that will help me grow as a woman, a friend and a Sales Director. She recently helped me decide to take a risk in moving from a global powerhouse company with a great reputation to a startup. She made it so much less scary and I truly feel that I am where I am because she was coaching me to be confident in my calculated risks and I invite anyone that is considering taking Kim on as an Executive Coach to reach out to me for a recommendation.”

Regardless of where you are at in your career regular coaching and feedback is critical to continued success. I have had the opportunity to be coached by Kim for over a year. She has helped uncover many strengths I didn’t know I had but also helped highlight areas that I could improve upon. She has truly made me a better leader to my employees and a much better peer to my co-workers. As I share various situations with her, she has an amazing ability to ask thought provoking questions that allow me to find my own solutions. I thoroughly enjoy all our sessions and I always leave them by saying I think this was our best one. She is so easy to talk to and I know she has helped me be a better person overall. I look forward to continuing our sessions and continuing my growth as a leader.”

I am thankful for the opportunity to have Kim coach me on my Gallup Strengths Finders results. I was very familiar with my top four strengths but did not understand my fifth. Kim did an excellent job presenting the theme and allowing me to explore how that theme was present in my life. What a difference that made because that theme is pervasive throughout my actions, thoughts and beliefs. Then, Kim opened more opportunity for exploration by talking with me about how well my top three themes work together to make me even stronger. While I understood the themes individually, I had never seen them from a united front that elevates them. Kim is an excellent StrengthsFinder coach and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a deep understanding of their themes.”
