“The Hospitality Leadership Sessions have been invaluable. Dedicated time getting to know one another while developing life-long leadership skills is a true gift. We’ve been able to gain different perspectives and viewpoints along the way through each of the sessions. The laughter alone is good for the soul.”  – Jodi Krefetz, Director, Food Services

“I cannot say enough positive things about the Leadership Development courses. Kimberly and her team have the gift of bringing the best out of everyone. The sessions empower you to be genuinely open and to share your flaws, in a fun and approachable manner. Throughout each session, I have continued to do a deeper self-analysis into the person and professional I am, while remaining vulnerable and admitting where I am lacking… which is a huge positive step in the direction of becoming the person and professional I want to be! I would recommend any and all Leaders to attend these courses, new or seasoned!”Peter Stanislaw, Director, Express Services

“This time with peers has given us time to get to know each other, laugh with each other and learn about each other. It’s hard to find that time during the workday and without the ability to have any social events, we’re lucky to be able to come together for some relaxed time together that’s not focused on the day-to-day tasks.”   – Terry Duffina, Director, Sustainability

I really appreciate all of your suggestions and coaching today. I am inspired to put together a business proposal with a roll out plan for relaunching Persevere Consulting. I now have a very clear concept of what elements need to be included in this plan. Thank you for your inspiring me!

I was fortunate to have Kimberly and her team facilitate a very engaging and productive session with my team of Technical Program Managers in Aug 2019. The intent was to energize and motivate the team to feel empowered and make changes to deliver better results. Kimberly spent an afternoon (many felt it was too short) delivering very compelling and thought provoking messages though interactive exercises that kept the group of ~60 people on their feet.

Everyone left with a great deal of positive energy and with a promise to implement their takeaways in their professional journeys. I would highly recommend Kimberly for any organization that is looking to inject some energy and fresh thinking into their teams

I worked with Kimberly while she was a consultant working with Extreme Networks and I was on the core project team. Extreme wanted to speed up its product development lifecycle and enlisted Kimberly’s help to do so. I found Kimberly to be smart, tough, dynamic and a welcome change agent. She navigated through the executive level politics and was able to deliver results that greatly improved the process controls and adherence with the company – enabling the company to focus on doing the right things, having the right checks and balances along the way, and improve time to market. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Kimberly again.

Kimberly is one of those people who’s enthusiasm is infectious. You can’t help being motivated by her, even if it’s via email. Her wit, experience, and business savvy make her someone I am honored to be associated with. I am a guest blogger on the University of California Santa Cruz Extension PM website, and Kimberly is our fearless leader and motivational cheerleader. She keeps us going strong with her creativity and pizazz.
