Her deep expertise, ability to adjust to my style, her energy, empathy, communication style and ability to read her client on every level is extraordinary. Her passion for her work and authentic focus on putting her client's interest first is an inspiration.

I have full faith that the practice / habits she helped me to instil, will lead to a more fulfilling, joyful and successful all-around existence".

“She is hands down the best personal coach with whom I've had the privilege of interacting, and I look forward to working with her again in my career. I recommend her without reservation. Kim facilitated group discussions, lead 1:1 coaching and feedback sessions, participated in meetings with our Board of Directors, consulted on group projects, and followed up with each of us individually. Kim is extremely personable, intelligent, hard-working, resourceful, and effective."
Goldman Sachs, Vice President
"It has been a rewarding experience working with Kim. She distinguishes herself as a coach and trainer in a host of ways:
- Attentive listener/observer – Adept at integrating both verbal and non-verbal messages into the foundation of a relationship.
- Deep knowledge base and experience – Kim understands the complexities/hurdles that often inhibit growth & change.
- Rigor coupled with patience – Recognizes that change and growth require a focus on mindset and changing behaviors in small but meaningful ways.
- Authenticity – Kim consistently conveys her commitment to her clients and exhibits ongoing resourcefulness in being part of the journey.
- Creativity – Kim embraces the reality that there is no one simple formula for growth and change. She customizes her approach to the individual and that individual’s unique circumstances and goals.
Goldman Sachs, Vice President
“As part of a year-long high-performance development program, a small group of us attended a leadership session that Kim facilitated. Kim filled the space with warmth and energy from the moment she entered the room. She inspired us to find our own leadership strengths and development some new skills through a balance a positive reinforcement and challenge. Kim also allowed her own leadership presence to grow into the room in a way that we were able to observe and grow with. Kim’s style is vibrant and refreshing. I would certainly work with her in the future and recommend her leadership coaching to others.”
Lend Lease, Head of Environment, Health and Safety
“Kim trained and coached a group of people in the American subsidiary of an Australian company and achieved stunning results. Global projects are complex yet if you have consultants like Kim who are smart, interested and have no issues with being flexible to the needs of the group, they work really well. Kim is detailed and methodical in her preparation and approach. This is a sure sign for me of someone who wants to deliver exceptional results for clients.”
Maximus International, Associate Director
Nomura Investment Bank
“Kim has deep expertise in Leadership and Development and brings a thoughtful approach to client relationships helping drive solutions that have real business impact. Her follow up and ability to build strong relationships are second to none. As a trainer and coach, she delivers programs with passion and creates an environment where participants can immediately start to apply the subject matter to their world; a real asset in what is often a time compressed environment.”
Nomura Investment Bank, Global Head of Talent Development,
“Kim was a standout. What impressed me about her, was the combination of skills and traits she brought to the table. First, she was always extremely well prepared. She researched the nuance of our industry-within-the-industry as well as quirks of our corporate culture. This made for productive sessions with advice that was not generalized but customized to our challenges. Kim has a captivating personality, full of energy and full of knowledge that she conveys in an engaging fashion. All of her coaching was helpful, but the 1:1 sessions in particular. Kim helped me to focus on natural strengths and how to get positive energy from those. She also needed to give me some critical feedback which she did in a constructive way. I still refer to my notes when I need a mindset adjustment or am trying to craft a better approach to a situation at hand. I am anxious to work with her more."

"The term powerhouse applies to few so much as Kim Lancer. Last Friday night, Kim -executive coach, keynote speaker founder of www.tallpoppies.us, and all-round wonder woman- lent her prodigious talents to the gathered crowd at the Belgium Beer Cafe. With a series of exercises to prod and poke the ego, she taught an array of 60-odd professions the tenets of self-leadership needed to supercharge their 2021."
