Dr. Kim Hires – Leadership Coach 

Let’s End Leadership Burnout

Coach, Author, Speaker 


Who checks on the Leaders?

Leadership Burnout is ‘The Wall.‘ It’s the intersection of exhaustion, frustration/anger, destroyed confidence and a forgotten Why. Leadership Burnout is an epidemic and every industry is affected.

Why are Leaders more susceptible to burnout?

1. The responsibility of leadership makes leaders more vulnerable.

2. Most Leaders are High Performers who struggle with Perfectionism.

3. No one tells Leaders that “winning or succeeding at all costs” is a toxic mindset with lifelong consequences.

4. Leaders are charged with monitoring for burnout in their team but need an objective eye to identify burnout in themselves. 

That’s where I come in…

What practices and policies are in place to support your Leaders? High leadership turnover is a sign that misalignment is rampant within the organization. Dr. Kim’s customized consulting packages  will help your organization identify, implement, and evaluate strategies to help your Leaders thrive.

Leader Development

Leadership Development starts with Self Development. We lead not from what we know but from the essence of who we are. Leadership burnout occurs when a Leaders’ passion, purpose, performance and resources are misaligned.

She finds the human behind the armor and taps into them within the first 90 seconds. Part story-teller, strategist and coach, she balances vulnerability with empowerment causing audiences to feel aware and encouraged, and ready to implement new knowledge and tools right away.

Kim 1 on 1

The essence of coaching is the ability to understand you: to think how you think, and understand your perspective. From this benchmark, I place another perspective on top of yours – stretching and growing you to gently see a more empowering way. Done right, coaching demolishes limiting paradigms.

Dr. Kim

I normally tune out when we have a speaker. That sounds terrible to say but we have so many things to do. But I could not stop listening to Dr. Kim! Every word out of her mouth spoke to my soul!

There are very few people I know who light up a room when entering it. Now Dr. Kim has made this list of being one of those people in my book. Dr. Kim not only owns the room she commands your attention with her engaging smile and professional demeanor which she maintains at all times.
