Testimonials

  • "I had the privilege of working with Ken as my leadership coach earlier this year, and he did not disappoint. During our time together, Ken helped me identify both strengths and opportunities for development, then worked closely with me to outline actionable steps for growth as a leader in the communications industry. Several months after the end of our engagement, I consider Ken a great mentor, partner and friend. I would highly recommend him for leadership coaching."

  • "Too many consultants are eager to tell you what to do to try to prove how smart they are. That's not Ken Jacobs. Ken possesses a very rare combination of skills --- coach, analyst, cheerleader, father confessor, strategic muse -- and masterfully transitions between those roles (and a few others) to guide you where you need to go professionally and personally. And he does it with warmth, humor and just the right amount of nudging and tough love when required to keep you on track to achieve the crystal-clear goals he insisted you create for yourself. Now, when I find myself out on a limb I think, "What would Jacobs do?" When it comes to business and leadership, Ken has become the all-knowing deity to whom I routinely appeal."

  • "Ken is a seasoned hand who has a knack with people. So he seemed like the right guy to turn to as an executive coach for some of our top performers. We’ve given him multiple assignments – none of them easy – and he’s far outperformed our expectations every time. We’ve taken to calling Ken the “PR Whisperer” around the office."

  • "Ken has been invaluable during a year of incredible professional transition for me. He has provided helpful advice on varying professional topics, as well as taught me how to dig deep to use skills that I wasn’t even fully aware I had to overcome obstacles. Ken made what could have been an incredibly tough year instead a year of rewards and learning. I would highly recommend Ken."

He really helped me distinguish what was reality vs. my own imagination, and did a great job in holding me accountable for coming up with (and doing!) actions that would get me closer to my dream life.
