His practice focuses on creating resilience and agility at three levels: individual leaders, leadership teams, and organizations. Kevin’s coaching approach is based on three perspectives. From a cognitive perspective, he helps his clients gain awareness of how thoughts, beliefs and assumptions impact their behavior. From a social context perspective, Kevin explores the social context that a leader is embedded in to help increase awareness of these social forces. Finally, he uses a strengths-based situational approach to helping leaders identify their strengths as well as the situations where they may enhance their effectiveness by engaging others to augment their weaknesses. He earned a Ph.D. from Fielding Graduate University where he conducted research on resilience and social support among middle managers during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. In addition, he has an MA degree in human resource development, an MA in human, and a BS degree in Information Science. He is certified in the Bar-On EQI, MBTI, Conflict Dynamic Profile (CDP), and the CCL Benchmarks 360. Some of Kevin’s former and current clients include Abbott Pharmaceuticals, American Association of Port Authorities, American Psychological Association, Cisco Systems, Eli Lilly, Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, National Cancer Institute, Port of Los Angeles, Sodexo, Texas Instruments, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Prior to launching his practice in 2001, Kevin worked as an HR director, financial analyst, CPA, instructional designer, training manager, and software developer. Beyond his vocation, Kevin has a passion for flying trapeze, volunteer work with hospice patients and the homeless, Latin culture, and swing dancing. Kevin can be reached at or at
