Transitioning into a new leadership position is a blessing and a curse. It's a time of excitement and opportunity to expand your impact, increase your salary, and fulfill your career dreams. It also represents a significant challenge - leaving your former role's comforts, determining your key priorities, building coalitions of support, navigating the unwritten rules in the culture, and having an impact quickly. Research reveals that leaders who are unable to navigate a transition successfully may derail their careers.

I have had the great experience of working with Kevin who has helped me significantly -- both professionally and personally. He is thoughtful, kind, empathetic and effective. He is very talented at asking the right questions, listening, and seeking to understand. Kevin helped me to create and execute a unique, individual, and on-going plan that provided outstanding support, structure, and focus to help me reach my goals. He has greatly assisted me in developing my confidence and building my own personal brand. His personal coaching style and mentoring abilities have been a tremendous benefit to me. I highly encourage anyone to work with Kevin for any coaching needs they may need.Joe Goerge
My experience with Kevin has resulted in tremendous and ongoing growth as a communicator and leader. He's truly a great listener who does an excellent job of balancing targeted professional suggestion, while becoming a partner in resolving the inevitable issues that challenge each of us in leadership roles. The result is a more fully developed skillset, as opposed to a quick fix; which is truly meaningful!Jerry D.
