"Kevin’s coaching style is really well suited to any professional situation. He is non-judgmental but challenging. He is confidential and supportive, and great at sharing techniques and his experiences. The work helped me understand my leadership strengths and weaknesses and Kevin’s coaching modeling helped me understand how to coach my direct reports. I cannot recall every feeling like he was unhelpful, or that he took the wrong approach. Kevin is very good!"

Wayne Ferrari, CEO, iAutomation

"I appreciate that Kevin is a good listener and that he facilitates a good exchange of ideas. He has the ability to address issues and develop clear recommendations. I value his professional experience (he “gets it”) and he has access to tools, e.g., evaluations, personality assessments, articles, etc."
