About Kevin Nourse


Kevin Nourse founded Nourse Leadership Strategies in 2001 to provide executive coaching and leadership development services after a multifaceted career in software development, finance, training, human resources, and consulting. The firm works with clients in Southern California including the Inland Empire, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

Kevin's passion for flying trapeze transformed his perspective on risk-taking and leadership, leading him to realize that entrepreneurship was the perfect fit. This transformation was realized in Cape Cod in the summer of 2001 when Kevin called his boss from a phone booth to volunteer to be downsized from his job and fly into entrepreneurship.


Kevin has an MA degree in human resource development, a BS degree in Information Science and is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) from the International Coach Federation. He earned his Ph.D. in human and organization development, focusing his research on crisis leadership in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.​​


Prior to launching his practice in 2001, Kevin worked as an HR director, financial analyst, CPA, instructional designer, training manager, and software developer. The breadth of his organizational experience has proven invaluable in his work with leaders and managers.


Kevin is a big believer in helping his clients live balanced, integrated, and intentional lives - as well as modeling this approach to living for his clients. Some of his passions beyond his work include impressionist oil painting, hiking, photography, volunteer work, road trips and volunteer work helping the homeless.

He lives in Palm Springs, CA - a part of the Inland Empire - and works with clients in the Inland Empire, San Diego, and other parts of California.
