Kim Huggins


Kim is a highly experienced executive coach and consultant having worked both within large corporations and on the leadership team of management consulting firms.  A perceptive change and organizational executive with experience that spans a diverse range of industries, organizations and operational roles, Kim employs an empathy-driven approach to improve leader behaviors and the way people work together. She specializes in operating model transformation, creating and implementing strategies to support top team development, leadership alignment, organizational effectiveness, ID&E and employee experience.

Kim has worked side-by-side with executives, from Fortune 500 to start-up biotech, to support them in executing strategic priorities and leading organizational change. Because she’s been on the corporate side of the consulting equation, working for ExxonMobil and Merck, she can truly empathize with clients’ challenges and help bridge the gap between employees and senior leadership.

Previously, Kim was a coach for Stanford University’s Executive Education program where she coached emerging and sitting c-suite leaders from companies across the globe.  She is currently on the faculty for Rutgers Business School Executive Education where she contributes to their mini-MBA program on leading a multigenerational workforce. Her original research on the subject spawned a book, Generate Performance! Unleashing the Power of a Multigenerational Workforce, which explored key strategies that can elevate and enhance employee performance across an organization.  Kim has worked with customer facing functions in the financial services and pharmaceutical industries to educate and understand generational communication styles, approaches and preferences.

Kim is passionate about mentorship and development of future leaders and serves on the board of The POWER of Professional Women, a nonprofit organization focused on developing the next generation of women leaders in and around the Philadelphia area.  Kim has also been a Project Leader for Compass Philadelphia who provides pro-bono consulting services to nonprofit boards.

Kim earned a B.S. in Business from Drexel University. After traveling and relocating several times in the corporate world, she settled back in the Philadelphia area.  Kim cherishes the time she spends with family, preferably on a beach somewhere. When she’s not supporting clients, she’s likely gardening, doing yoga or cooking for friends and family.


"Kim worked with my leadership team and provided coaching to several individuals.  I truly valued the way she balanced empathy and directness.  She was so invested in us and our success as a team that it made us more committed and accountable to each other.”

“I met Kim several years ago when she ran an assimilation program for our new CEO and executive team.  As Chief Marketing Officer, I later hired Kim to work with me and my team.  We have now known each other for over 12 years and Kim has become someone I reach out to regularly for support, coaching and just to bounce ideas around.  I value the way she listens, asks questions and helps me think things through. There is no question that I am a better leader, and I have made better business decisions, because of my interactions with Kim.”
