About Ken Top

As the name of the company implies, we offer our clients a Thinking Partner.

Leadership can be a lonely undertaking.
As a leader, you carry a lot of responsibility. Your team is counting on you. You may be under pressure from your boss or board.

Who do you talk to?
Our clients often call us their sounding board. Someone they can run their ideas past who can point out things they may have overlooked or ask questions to help them clarify their thinking.

why you need a thinking partner

Get Feedback And Perspective From A Neutral Third Party

Sometimes the value comes from simply “talking it out” - as one of our clients put it:

“I find it helpful to have Ken validate that I am notionally headed in the right direction.”

But mostly it comes from honest feedback, delivered compassionately.

“Ken offers high-quality feedback. It can be hard to find people who are neutral, candid, and skilled in this area.”

If you’d like to have a Thinking Partner on YOUR side, let’s talk.
