Accelerate growth by designing the right people strategy.

People problems have been hard to fix, until now. Most companies create a business strategy and determine what business results they want to achieve—but they glaze over the critical “people work” that happens in between. You can’t wing it when it comes to team building and culture; you need to take a data-driven, strategic approach. And that’s where talent optimization comes in.

"Ken has brought significantly more than I did expect – professional mentoring, being always available, sharing advice and providing candid feedback.

It sounds possibly as a standard set of behaviors and skills however the quality of the conversations, trust built from day 1 and wealth of experience Ken has demonstrated made the relationship special from my perspective.

I believe his listening and coaching skills, genuine care for people, strategic thinking, deep HR content knowledge and overall passion and engagement are making Ken a very special person to work with and rely on.”

Jarek Tobola, Head of AXA XL Poland

Ken is an incredible thought partner and I love collaborating with him. He has helped me with a variety of things such as new leader integrations, coaching, top team effectiveness, and multiple projects where I needed a strategic thought partner who can also roll up his sleeves and pitch in to help meet tight deadlines and incorporate feedback from multiple stakeholders. He is the kind of person you trust instantly, as if you’ve known him for years. He has a wealth of HR knowledge, so whenever I have an issue he is the first person I call!
