“I have worked with Coach Keith for the past two years. My entire team has benefited from Keith’s mentorship, experience, and facilitation. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and kind. I give Keith the highest possible recommendation as a coach.”

“Our team keeps getting better each and every session, and Keith has been instrumental in that development! Our team was firing on levels I’ve never seen before in our last meeting – Amazing!”

“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.”

“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!”

“Keith has helped us make incredibly tangible progress as a company. We’ve gone from reluctance, to mild hesitancy, to eagerness, to a kind of passionate commitment to the work we are doing with the Keith Upkes Coaching. Our firm has made enormous, positive changes as a result. None of them was easy, as change never is. But they are critical things that wouldn’t have happened without the strategic vision and guidance Keith has provided.”

“Keith will help you work hard to bring your team to the next level. He keeps us on task, but he lets big moments within the team play out.”

Keith recently took our leadership team through a customized planning workshop. We left the workshop all in alignment with our One Page Strategic Plan complete! Because the workshop was custom for our company, we got so much out of it!

“Bringing Keith on was a turning point in our business! Ever since we incorporated Keith and the Rockefeller habits, we consistently post 30%+ growth of top line revenue and profitability year over year. It’s no coincidence! Keith has challenged us to deal with the challenges that come with such significant growth by coaching us through those decisions. We have moved from a small entrepreneurial company to a leader in our market.”

“Our team has developed a rhythm for delving into the planning sessions that really clicks. I do believe having the pre-planning session made our full day of planning more productive and less rushed. The accelerator meeting with our team was very beneficial as well!

After a work session with Keith, I leave so much smarter, and clear about where I want my business to go and what steps I need to take to get there. I feel comfortable bringing him the big scary problems that keep me up and night, and through his calm nature, large toolbox of resources and thoughtful approach he helps me discover a path forward. I can’t say enough about what Keith has done to help me bring my dream business to life!
