Kevin’s message is simple.
‘Creating Excellence starts Within’.
What is Excellence? Excellence is a powerful state of focused and balanced inner wellness, the Mind Body Soul connection, which then reflects outwards. Remember, organizations as well as individuals also have a body, mind and soul to them. When you are in this state you are potentially more energized to create impactful solutions and attract abundance. These solutions have dynamic effect on yourself and others around you, such as, family members, teams at work or in sport, plus organizations, clients and more.
Therefore, Lead from a place of Excellence, Now! Consider this to be one of the relationships you wish to be with.
A Little about Kevin
I started my life in a small logging camp on the West Coast of Canada. My family later moved to Victoria where I began my schooling and training to ultimately become a Canadian Ice Dance Champion; skating coach; contemporary dancer; elite figure skating choreographer; director of large scale events (1988 Olympic Closing Ceremonies); inspirational and creativity coach; author; and more.
This led me to living, coaching and directing in such world metropoles as New York City, Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Melbourne as well as throughout Canada.
Aspiring 4 and 2 Excellence has been my inner strength and life focus. I utilizes my athletic and performing arts history; interest in multiple philosophies, sports and arts; relationship coaching studies as well as other personal and executive coaching; and neuro-linguistic (NLP) tools to innovatively inspire my clients and audiences.
I like to integrate a performer's unique flair, while offering a variety of interactive, mindful and experiential English-language workshops and retreats.
Aha’s Moments of Realization
The inner magical energy that exists within and without a person or organization, if channeled mindfully, leads to awareness and discovery of ‘Aha’ Moments. These, ‘Aha’s’, are like flashes of realization. The Pearl of knowledge sits behind deep behind the Aha awaiting your consciousness. The Pearls in your life are within our own life’s stories no matter how positive or negative they may be. The true ‘Aha’ learning is hidden behind your stories. Once you distill your learning’s to a single word – presto, ‘Aha’ - that is where the powerful energy resides.
Once realized, now you can begin to use your ‘Aha’s’ or Pearls to assist you in creating well-formed strategies, tactics and solutions. Therefore, leading towards personally and within organizations excellence.
CLIC – 2 - Excellence
Over the years of working in the creative milieu I have come to realize a process that I use with great success. It is a unique model to excellence (or getting to your destination) and it is called, CLIC = Connect. Listen. Inspire. Create. In all situations in life there is a process to get to the your goal or objective. CLIC is the process to result relationship tool you may want to embrace.
To reach a goal, objective or dream, you first want to realize what that is. Once you determine the ‘Where you are going to’, then the real excitement and journey begins. A process is then created to get to your destination. The ‘How will you get there?’; ‘What many pathways will you take?’ are powerful questions you may ask to establish that journey. CLIC is a process to move you towards your destination.
