I was part of Kevin’s Leadership Development Program a few years ago. I wanted to let you know how instrumental your guidance was throughout that program. You ignited my passion for true leadership. I have been accepted to the Oregon Health Science University Healthcare MBA and start this Fall. I continue following your LinkedIn and appreciate your articles and posts. Thank you for guiding those of us who try and follow your example.

Kevin is passionate, knowledgeable, and an excellent facilitator for our Leadership program. He developed and facilitates this program and consistently receives outstanding reviews from participants. He also is flexible, easy to work with and always looking and willing to make changes to improve the program. With a strategic eye, Kevin is thorough in assessing the needs of an organization. He carefully produces a customized approach that will lead to evidence-based outcomes, communicates his findings along the way and makes sound recommendations that ultimately lead to implementation success.

Exercising Influence offers practical tools to integrate immediately in discussions that will deepen, broaden and elevate ordinary conversations to extraordinary. Kevin Nourse eminently increases the value of Exercising Influence with his breadth of knowledge and personal leadership style. We’ve heard post class stories from our leaders on how they have been able to change conversations from -- dragging along to expediting quickly. EI is simply valued!
DIVNA WHEELWRIGHT, MANAGER OF CHILD LIFE, CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF MICHIGAN
I feel I owe you and the entire Leadership Development Committee a tremendous thank you. I was just selected as the new Manager of Child life and Volunteer Services at Children's Hospital of Michigan. I am confident that I would not be in this position had I not had the formative experience of participating in the Leadership Academy. If you could please pass along my gratitude to Nourse Leadership Strategies, I would appreciate it.
PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Kevin Nourse supported us in 2 ways: conducting an environmental scan with the board – identifying opportunities and threat - and co-creating and facilitating a staff retreat. The benefits of both of those engagements continue to unfold in the organization through strategic discussions and shifts in our culture.

I am happy to recommend Kevin Nourse as an executive coach and organizational development expert. Our General Manager spent a year recruiting and hiring her senior managers. We contracted with Kevin to help her develop these highly qualified managers into a strong management team. For the past three years, Kevin has designed and facilitated the annual planning meeting for the senior management team. He has facilitated critical conversations, provided developmental coaching, assessed organizational training needs and supported various cross-divisional teams in their efforts to improve internal communication. I am happy to recommend Kevin to any organization that wants to develop their leadership, innovation, and strategic thinking.
FLAMINIA MANGONE, LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, THE NATURE CONSERVANCY
Kevin is an outstanding consultant and facilitator who cares deeply about producing high-quality results that are customized to his clients' needs and values. He is a strategic thinker, possesses a strong business acumen, and has an unusual ability to connect with others with ease, grace, and compassion. Kevin recently facilitated a Constructive Negotiation class for my organization and connected easily with the participants, demonstrating flexibility to accommodate their needs while delivering the intended content. I highly recommend him as a very talented, intelligent, insightful, trustworthy, and caring organizational development consultant, training facilitator, and executive coach.
