“It’s rare to find an advisor who can combine thoughtfulness and practicality when working with executives; Kevin is that advisor.  I had the pleasure of engaging Kevin as an executive coach and executive team advisor for one of my large healthcare clients.  I was deeply impressed by his ability to coach the whole person while keeping the focus on business results and organizational issues.  Kevin is a truly gifted executive coach who brings his in-depth knowledge of people and organizations to every engagement. Any senior executive could count on him for insightful coaching and wise counsel.”
