KEVIN JOHNSON

KIND WORDS FROM MY BOOK COACHING CLIENTS

Kevin helped us connect all the pieces. He methodically brought clarity to the writing process and ultimately shaped a manuscript readily understood by a wide variety of readers. Our book got better because of Kevin’s expertise.

In all my experiences with Kevin—as my editor, coauthor, and co-presenter—I’ve seen him strive for excellence in himself and encourage others to pursue it as well. Kevin has keen insights into human nature and communication.

Kevin is an incredibly talented author and editor, and his creativity sparked my limp prose to life. In this marathon, he carried me across the finish.

I trust Kevin’s instincts and experience. He’s more than a book coach. He’s an empathetic and authentic person, a life coach during writing and long after. I leave every conversation with him encouraged and full of ideas. Run—don’t walk—to the chance to work with Kevin. He has my highest recommendation!

MARCIA BALLINGER, PhD

Kevin is a top-notch editor. He took what I thought was a very good manuscript—and made it great! He has remarkable skill at bringing the author’s voice and content to its highest level to drive maximum reader engagement.

THOMAS SCHLICK

Author of Jumpstart Your Service Revolution, Executive Consultant, Schlick & Associates

Kevin tirelessly and cheerfully pushed me to create a fast, readable book. Without his encouragement, know-how, and collaborative partnership, my book would not have been possible. He’s a friend for life.

KRISTIN FITZMORRIS

Author of Leadership Fitness, Principal, Hidden Brook Communications, and former CIA Operations Officer

I didn’t know where to start with my book, but Kevin knew all the right questions to ask. He helped put written words to my talent management practices for leadership succession, and his connections made publishing painless. The resulting book is business-smart and inspiring. No thoughtful leader can read it without being informed, challenged, and transformed.

STEVE SALMI, PhD, LP

Without Kevin, there would be no book.
