I received leadership coaching from Kimberly McNally during my first 12 months as a new nurse manager. The experience was invaluable and provided me a solid foundation to expand my nursing career in a formal leadership position. Kimberly provided coaching in many forms, including individual and group settings, phone consultations, and reading/writing assignments. Her guidance, council, and leadership helped me move forward with confidence. She is amazing!

Camie Spieker, RNClinical ManagerSeattle Children’s Hospital

I engaged Kimberly to facilitate portions of our Board of Directors Retreats related to Governance and Strategic Planning. Prior to both events, Kimberly was very accessible and mindful about tailoring her training to specifically address the needs of the Board, in order to achieve the most successful educational outcomes. Kimberly’s insight and intellect stimulated participation of Board members, who left with tangible tools and techniques to immediately implement during their board meetings. There would be no hesitation in recommending Kimberly to any organization who is seeking an experienced professional to engage their employees or Boards. I have every confidence that others will be as pleased with their desired outcomes, and having the pleasure to have worked with Kimberly.

Kimberly’s breadth of leadership experience, personal insight and use of evidence-based tools provided tangible benefits that could be readily translated into my daily work life. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any leader seeking team development, team problem-solving or fresh perspective about their leadership legacy.

Kimberly encourages and inspires you to become the best leader you can be. She has an amazing ability to connect, encourage, and push you to places you hadn’t considered going or being as a leader.  She helped me increase my emotional intelligence.  She was very skilled at teaching me how to acknowledge, reflect and celebrate my successes. She is empathic, respectful, and most of all she is fun to work with. I look forward to every call, and interaction with Kimberly, as after each session I had energy, motivation and desire to succeed. She has a tremendous knowledge around organization function, team dynamics, and resources that help assess leadership and teams.


Cindy Davis, RNChief Nurse Executive

Kimberly guided me in establishing goals for our sessions as well as for my career. As the director of a leadership development program, I found our sessions to be thought provoking and the insights gained have helped to shape my approach in developing future projects. I plan to work with Kimberly again and highly recommend her as a coach.


Ann O’Doherty, EdDLeadership Program Director

Kimberly created a safe and dynamic learning environment for board chair/CEO pairs to address challenges faced by their partnership. Drawing from her knowledge and experience, she used her warm personality and humor to generate lively discussions about roles, communication, and leadership. When participants were asked what would make the session more effective, participants said “nothing — leave it as is with this same trainer”.


Betsy Veith, MPHDirector of Governance Support

Thank you so very much for the time and effort you put into the Emotional Intelligence training session for our Physician Leadership Program.  All of us are better for it!

John Vassall, MDChief Medical OfficerSwedish Health Service

Kimberly McNally worked with the executive team at Mason General Hospital on two levels, individual coaching and team dynamics, delivering exceptional outcomes in both areas. Kimberly brought tools and structure to the engagement to engender introspection and dialogue, but most important was her ability to develop trust in the process and in becoming more vulnerable, which really means open to opportunities to develop. Kimberly is exceptional at listening and connecting with people. I whole heartedly recommend her services.

Kimberly facilitated a Board retreat to assist our Commissioners in a self-evaluation process and development of an action plan. The process received high praise from the Board and management. Kimberly provided key interactions with all involved and provided guidance to a value-based plan. Her knowledge and professionalism served us well.

It was a profound experience to have been coached by Kimberly McNally.  She has the ability to inspire you to make the changes in your life to be the best you. She was exceptionally proficient in coaching me to be able to increase my self-awareness and self knowledge which enabled me to fast track my executive development. Kimberly’s coaching style has helped me to have broader perspective of understanding the problems and the unpredictable challenges as an executive. She has guided me in identifying the sustainable practices I need in my life and workplace to ensure long-term success. She taught me how to be unstuck from the dilemmas of the daily work and transfer the results for the organization. Kimberly has inspired me to make the behavioral changes needed to transform myself to increase the results and performance of myself, staff and organization. Kimberly is an amazing coach and being coached by her is a great investment.

Anne Blunden, PhD, RNExecutive Director of NursingKing Abdullah Bin Adbulaziz University Hospital

Kimberly has an uncanny knack for targeting areas for growth, even those that may not be obvious to the client. She takes the time to discover key issues and work with the client to develop skills that will spearhead growth and development. Kimberly’s use of diagnostics, combined with a firm, yet honest touch, provide client’s with the tools needed to truly see themselves and find ways to be “the best they can be”. During my 6 months working with Kimberly I learned not only how to be a better leader, but also a better mentor. The safe space she created provided a priceless opportunity to look at all the possibilities for the future. Under her guidance and expertise I was able to develop new skills and insights that will enable me to continue growing not just in my career, but personally as well.

Your InsideCoach™ program was so well received at our hospital.  It is one of the best leadership development activities we’ve ever done.  The program is practical and hands-on and you customized it to our needs.  It gave us the traction we needed for our cultural change work.
