“Kent Frazier’s coaching came at a critical time in my life as husband, father, and professional. He helped me transform the lens through which I viewed these aspects: from compartmentalized competing responsibilities to harmonious reflections of the same individual. He taught me the power of framing, perspective, and the associated tools to reinforce these concepts and seek balance within, among peers, and my greater community. The effects of these methods and teachings were quite simply transformative, helping me thrive as an individual, a colleague, a community member, and a leader.”

“Kent and I worked together actively for several years while he was VP/Talent at LRW.  In this role his impact was transformative. He changed the way we think and the way we talk.  His language (and the ideas behind them) are still active in our day to day work activities. The first major learning and development program he introduced was concerned by many to be the best ever at LRW.  I still use lessons I learned in this class daily.”

Kent Frazier is one of the most thoughtful, brilliant, and insight-full people I have the joy to know. We’ve had the pleasure to work with each other in many different capacities over the last 5+ years, including in a vendor partner relationship, as co-facilitators sharing the stage, and even as business partners. Without fail, I have come away from our mutual experiences with a greater sense of what is possible in the world at large and with a deeper and broader understanding of myself.

Working with Kent helped to shift a really important and fundamental pattern in me. There were some emotions and self-beliefs I did not want to face (and didn't know that I didn't want to face). This also meant that working with Kent involved a lot of discomfort in facing and befriending these emotions and beliefs. But that was part of the territory - shift happens only after hard and often unpleasant work. These patterns did shift and I have much more openness now in a way I am and express myself. This would not have been possible if I hadn't done this work with Kent. All in all - hard stuff, but good stuff!

I appreciate Kent's care and dedication. Even though the work took much longer than initially assumed and agreed upon, Kent was willing to go the whole way. I could see his dedication and care in seeing me go through this change. Thank you Kent!

Kent is a kind, generous and compassionate person I have been blessed to collaborate with and be coached by. His personal presence and approach provide a container for honest reflection and self-discovery. I especially appreciate Kent’s commitment to working with the whole person. He was skillful at challenging my thoughts & my habits and helping me find my way back to personal and professional effectiveness. It takes a very practiced coach to be able to challenge with diplomacy that enables self-accountability and break-through thinking, and Kent continues to surprise me with new challenges and new learning every time we work together. I am blessed to have him in my life!

I met Kent when we both worked at the same firm, he led our team through difficult personnel challenges, led one of the most effective leadership programs I’ve ever participated in throughout my professional career and he coached me personally, when I needed help to regroup and reground my professional life. I consider Kent to be my “go to” coach and a friend. He always offers clear-eyed perspective, wrapped in deep personal concern for my well-being and the well-being of those who live and work with me. What makes Kent effective is that he has the soul of an artist, the listening skills of a therapist and the focus of a business professional. In our work together we set clear goals; explored frameworks that I now use every day and share with others; we assessed our work relative to the goals we set out for ourselves at the end of every conversation. I highly recommend Kent as a coach who can help you, your team and your business achieve at the highest level.

“Having worked with Kent, I can attest to the thoughtful and deliberate approach the takes to helping people understand, clarify, and pursue their “purpose.” He is an extremely articulate and persuasive communicator, and I saw, firsthand, the impact his work had with others on my team. In particular, my right-hand person became a much more communicative, solutions-oriented, and dynamic leader as a result of Kent’s Executive Leadership training. It made a big difference right away!”

“Coaching with Kent allowed me to see how I was showing up in the world (intentionally and unintentionally) and move to a way of being that made me more accessible to and connected with others.  His way of taking me through this understanding was both fierce and caring and created motivation around change instead of resistance to it.”
