LIVE THE LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS.

Corporate coaching, team facilitation, & lifestyle design.

For more than two decades, my journey has spanned from the vibrant streets of Chicago to the bustling energy of Shanghai. Throughout this remarkable voyage, my role has evolved into that of a trusted guide, partnering with global leaders and teams to navigate the ever-shifting landscape of success.

My mission is to ignite a transformation within you—one that not only prepares you for the challenges of today but also equips you with the vision and tools to lead authentically into the future. I merge the realms of purpose, people, planet, and profitability into a seamless tapestry of leadership excellence.

At the core of my being, I am an artist with a unique gift for transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. With each stroke of insight and brush of innovation, I empower leaders to transcend conventional boundaries and embrace a new, expansive perspective on leadership that reaches far beyond the confines of Western conventions.

"I started coaching in 1998. I'm often amazed at the many displaced gifts and talents my clients have. I now challenge them about that limited thinking. Our gifts are meant to move."

THE COACHKJ EXPERIENCE

My dedication is empowering you.

Guided by the wisdom of overcoming adversity, I've joined forces with some of the most brilliant minds and compassionate hearts in the business realm. This firsthand familiarity with the challenges of self-mastery, fostering resilience, and guiding others toward a united vision fuels my dedication to empower you.

True mastery lives in the "soft" skills.

Today, my canvas extends to the corporate world's boardrooms, executive suites, and team collaborations across the globe. Within this VUCA world—a world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity—I weave the brushstrokes of my experiences to create a portrait of leadership that defies convention.

  • Holistic Lifestyle Design
  • Social & Emotional Intelligence
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Transformational Leadership Coaching
  • Evidence-based methodologies
  • Organizational Management & Culture

I'm a firm believer that true mastery lies not in the "hard" skills alone but in the harmonious integration of diverse perspectives, equity, and emotional intelligence into the very fabric of leadership, team dynamics, organizational culture, and customer relationships.

ROOTS.

I am the father of three young adults. I carry two legacies from two families: my adoptive family, from which I draw inspiration from my great, great grandfather Oliver Lewis, winner of the inaugural Kentucky Derby in 1875; and my birth family, from which I draws inspiration from my father Jerry Harvey, community leader, Black Panther, Freedom Rider and 33rd degree Mason.

I enjoy acrylic painting, poetry, songwriting, eclectic music, salsa dancing, and long-distance running, resulting in 3 Chicago Marathon finishes -- and I get on the dance floor at every opportunity.
I currently live between Chicago and Costa Rica and I love the expansion that living abroad brings to my coaching lens.

Senior HR Leader | Leadership Coach

Asking the right questions

"...I knew that he was a dynamite coach - accessible, non-judgmental, energetic and thoughtful. I felt strongly at the time of our first meeting (and that belief has not changed) that those staff lucky enough to get assigned to his group would have an amazing week of learning and developing. Kevin exudes what coaching should be about: creating a safe space for self-discovery. Anyone would be lucky to work with him. So lucky."

Strategic Leader

Coaching through change

“…As we spoke my angels kept confirming and revealing certain things to her and the reading was genuine and fluid. She was great… Waking up this morning I have a sense of spiritualism which I have been searching for that I lost. I was and I’m at peace. She provided great clarity! Thank you for a great reading- we both said it at the said time lol. It was a long one but worth it!”

Discovering a new level of peace

"I hired Kevin as a career coach, but he wound up becoming my personal mentor. He guided me for 2 years. He has not only provided me with advice, he gave me frameworks to approach both life and career in an intentional and thoughtful way...He challenged my assumptions and pushed me to think about [my] why. Thanks to Kevin's coaching, not only did I achieve my career and financial goals, but I've discovered a new of mental peace as well. "
