Works with our company as a partner

Brings groups to consensus and action
“Kevin asks the right questions. He is warm and compassionate, yet able to challenge you when needed.
He facilitated a group for us that was tasked with updating some statewide standards. The group was large, with diverse perspectives. Kevin fully engaged the group, honored each of their contributions, and brought the group to consensus.
Kevin’s approach is now used as a model for us as we work collaboratively across statewide systems, and it gets results.”

Kevin was great! His ability to facilitate the day for my team was exceptional.
“Kevin was great! His ability to facilitate the day for my team was exceptional. He represented Life Care Services very well. He was very knowledgeable of the DiSC material and 5 Dysfunctions of a Team book. He took the time to get to know The Heritage of Green Hills which gave him the ability to make the material relevant for the group. I have received a number of positive comments from Leadership Team members about Kevin and the time spent yesterday. Kevin helped make the day a success and helped my team move forward. I would highly recommend him to others.”
