“In 2015, when my company was going through the culture issues that come with fast growth, I felt like I was at a loss. I hired Keith to help me align my team and move past the issues at hand. With Keith, I got a partner dedicated to my individual success as a CEO, the success of my executive staff, the success of each employee, and the overall success of my company. Keith pushes us all to become better people. My company has grown by leaps and bounds and it's thanks to the tools that Keith has provided and continues to provide us each time he works with us!”Amy BallietKiller Infographics

“We are so thankful to have Coach Keith lead us on our Metronomics journey. We feel that he is the perfect match for our team, and we felt that our 2-day strategic planning session was the best session we have ever had and that it provided a clear vision of where we are going and the path to get there. Keith has a way of coaching us that fosters open and honest communication to establish alignment. He allows the conversations to go where they need to go when necessary and reins them in when they are needlessly wandering. He reinforces our understanding of the purpose of the various steps of the process to foster our continued commitment. The improvement in our results in the first quarter of our Metronomics journey was amazing. We wouldn’t have gotten these results without Metronomics and Coach Keith. We are excited to continue working with Keith and to celebrate our successes along the way.”Roseann Schmid, P.E.Fisher Associates

I can’t say enough about what Keith has done to help me bring my dream business to life!”Mary CecchiniFounder, Living Big

I believe in different paths to success. In my over 30 years of business management, I’ve coached many clients toward their dreams—whether that’s more profitability, more free time, or a more mindful growth plan. We always get from Point A to Point B. But how we get there is always different.
I personally know what it’s like to break free from fear. To have time to do your best work. Live your best life. It’s amazing how your attitude toward your work, your family—everything—changes. Knowing that, I can’t stop sharing what I know. It’s just what I do.
I’m genuinely passionate about getting to know my clients, and helping them discover their unique path towards success and the freedom to live well.
