Kim Nugent, Leadership Coach

Kim Nugent

Leadership Coach

Expertise and Coaching Approach

Since the beginning of her career, Kim has been building and improving organizations’ talent management systems, including performance management, career pathing and development, succession and leadership development.

Some of the representative clients over her career have included: ACNielsen, Booz Allen Hamilton, Cigna, Eli Lilly and Company, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Stanford University, U.S. Steel and United Airlines.

Kim developed her own Career Development coaching methodology to help individuals discern and navigate among different career motivation styles (achievement, meaning and balance).

She helps her clients discern the cultural landscape of their present organization and set goals that align both with their values and career priorities. Kim is passionate working with leaders to build cultures of accountability, innovation and collaboration in our fast-paced global and digital world. She believes that downtime, rest and an understanding of how we spend our time, is critical to the success and well-being of our own lives and our teams.

Furthermore, she believes slowing down and really listening to others is the super power that all leaders need to build the high-performance teams and careers they want.

Education and Credentials

Kim earned her BA from the University of Notre Dame. She is about to complete her certification in the Hogan Assessment tool.

And Life…

When Kim is not doing the work she loves, you will likely find her laughing with her 10-year old son, taking advantage of cultural life in her Chicago backyard, and dabbling in her art, including water colors.
