Tim Keck gets my highest recommendation as a coach and mentor. His unique ability to recognize, understand, and explain the way every team member thinks and operates blows my mind. It turns out that there's so much about life and leadership that I didn’t know. Whether it’s personal coaching for just me or including my whole team — he provides a priceless amount of value. I name Tim as one of the top contributors to the success that I enjoy as a business professional today.
