Testimonial

“I have had the pleasure of working with Kim and observing her in intensive situations in which she has coached and advised leaders. She is outstanding at what she does.


Kim has an incredibly diverse background that she brings to her work, ranging from playing multiple roles in a small business to over 20 years of leadership experience to C-level executives in one of Fortune's Fastest Growing Companies as well as a Fortune 500 Company. With this background, along with her training and methodologies to consult, coach, train, and advise leaders, she brings fantastic value.


In my experience, Kim is the consummate professional, remarkably poised, grounded, and diplomatic -- even when under pressure. She gets to the root causes of an issue, and always looks beyond the logical solution to the issues involved in collaborating, building a team, and bringing people together. I also know that Kim is never going to compromise on ethics or her values, and I greatly appreciate that about her. Her work focuses on executive and organizational presence - a brilliant set of solutions that include leadership presence -- how executives "show up" -- and naturally extends to how the organization as a whole shows up in the marketplace.


If you want to work with a leadership advisor who has both a broad and deep set of experiences and skills, and also has the professionalism and polish required to navigate complex organizations, I highly recommend Kim's work.”
