        Kim’s coaching is honest and powerful – professional development is YOUR responsibility, always use data to support your accomplishments, and seek industry recognition to further your career. Kim gave me the nudge (okay, shove) I needed to go after industry awards this year and it was well worth it.

        I wouldn't have landed in my dream job without our paths crossing and the constant encouragement you have provided. For proof, the CEO and CFO of my new company said one of the reasons they were interested in talking with me was from seeing my blog. The KIM effect strikes again! :)

Learn with a comprehensive curriculum


Curate Your Career Narrative

Why let others curate your story? In Module 1 we cover how to take control of your career narrative. After deep diving into your course goals, Kim shares her K.N.O.W assessment, walks you through real world examples and outlines three common concerns about “career branding”.  


Create Your First Impression

You can only make a first impression once. In today’s digital-first world, you are likely to get “Googled” before you even get to the door. Module 2 focuses on developing your digital doorstep through platforms like LinkedIn. 


Create Community

Module 3 walks you through becoming an active player in your career and industry by engaging in the digital ecosphere. By leveraging global platforms like LinkedIn, Kim breaks down how consistent connecting fosters fast-forming relationships and opportunities with current and future clients. 


Lure in Power Players

The age-old saying goes, “You are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with” but in today’s digital-first era that expands to your network online as well. In Module 4, we will build a beacon to draw in high-level leaders and industry executives by sharing your expertise.


Build To Serve, Not Self-Promote

If you knew how to tie a shoelace & I didn’t, would you help me? Module 5 works to reframe your mentality to helping those around you by sharing your industry knowledge. Kim shares her concept of “serving over self-promotion” while giving guidelines to help you begin to share your knowledge online.


Leverage Your Expertise

In Module 6 we will create a runway to launch your expertise to the next level. From finding career advocates to pinpointing applicable awards & honors, this session will not only widen your perspective but give you actionable steps to start up-leveling your career trajectory. 

Who Is Kim?

Learning is better with cohorts

Learning is better with cohorts
Active Learning, not Passive Watching

Workshops are not for leaning back, they’re for leaning in. Kim plans on leaning in with you to dive into modules, lessons, frameworks & worksheets. From breakout sessions to real-time Q&A this fast-paced session will make the hours seem like minutes.

Learn with a Cohort of Peers

Through peer learning and collaboration, you will meet like-minded industry leaders who are ready to run the distance. You have as much to learn from those in your cohort as you do from Kim. 

Accountability and Feedback

Workout class is harder to skip when a friend is going with you. You also tend to work harder if someone is watching than if you’re alone. Knowing this, feedback and accountability will be major factors in your success. If you can’t hold yourself accountable, we’re there for you.

Special Guests

Kim has an extensive network of amazing guests that will be popping in throughout the 5-week course. Echoing her Coffee with Kim series where she interviews powerhouses like NY Times Best-Selling Author Jim Kwik & Entrepreneur Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Jason Feifer, these sessions will be intimate and give cohort students face time with industry leaders.
