Tom Keith

Retired Federal Government Executive

As the Associate Director for Acquisition and Logistics at NIH from 2006-2012, I had multiple opportunities to call on Ken to help us improve many of our business processes. Each of those opportunities proved unqualified successes for my organization. As well, Ken helped develop and execute several strategic planning sessions, organizational team work exercises, and provide personal coaching to my senior staff of government managers. His company’s help was key in seeing each of these initiatives succeed, and his organizational coaching skills more than once improved many of my junior and senior leaders strategies for leading a diverse and talented work force.

Project Anaylst/Coordinator (Consultant) at Department of Veteran Affairs

Ken Boxer is a diligent professional and genuinely cares for the well-being of his clients. He is intentional and passionate in providing service and will go beyond the call of duty to ensure that his customers are satisfied. As a result of these qualities, past customers seek him out for repeat business and refer him for organizational development projects both in the private sector as well as in the Federal Government space.

Jonathan Ward, PCC

Organizational Strategy Execution Consultant and Executive Coach

Ken Boxer is one of those rare Washington DC area consultants who is equally skilled at consulting to the Government and to the private sector. He has an extensive network of contacts, with whom he maintains excellent relationships, enabling him to stay current on the most-pressing issues faced by leaders in today’s organizations. He is generous with his time, listens closely, and quickly gets at the heart of the situation. He assembles highly-qualified teams of consultants when necessary to ensure that his clients’ requirements are fully satisfied. Always an optimist, and always able to deliver on his commitments, there is no problem that Ken can’t help a client find a way to resolve.  I had the good fortune to work with Ken on several organizational development projects both for the Federal Government and private industry. Ken built and led diverse teams that were targeted to the situation at hand. He had a highly-collaborative management style that was a refreshing change from other consultancies with which I had worked. I can’t thank Ken enough for his kindness, generosity, support, and encouragement – and his balanced feedback. I am a much more effective consultant and coach today because of what I learned by working with Ken.

Kelly Fairbairn

President of PPS International Limited (home of Lockwood Leadership International and SkillTeach) • Director of SyNet

Over the ten years that I have known and worked with Ken, I’ve noticed three things:

1)    He is authentic and engaged — genuinely caring about the client, the result and the effect of each engagement.

2)    He uses the talents of others to their greatest ability — matching individuals with projects and tasks that are not only suitable to their skills, but interesting to their preferences.

3)    He puts in the effort it takes to understand clients and their unique needs, organizational culture and strategy.

As a partner on projects and as a colleague, these qualities make for a true professional.
