The Turnaround in my business in a year is astounding!
Keith brings insight and clarity to the complex subject of managing teams. I’ve worked with him as my business and personal life coach. The turnaround in my business in a year is astounding!
Keith’s bestselling book “Light Your Fire,” brings together all of the concepts he has taught me into a single, easy-to-read, easy-to-implement, concise blueprint. Keith gives you the tools to dig deep, figure out what you want to achieve and make your plan to get there.
We all benefit from coaching and occasionally limit ourselves with financial excuses. This book removes the excuses and is like having Keith sitting in the room with you, helping you to make your business and your life everything you want it to be.

I would highly recommend them to anyone
Baldwin Success Coaching left a good impact on the 35 participants we worked with for our first annual Leadership Empowerment Summit. They spent two days with our young leaders from across the North Slope region and fostered a better understanding of the strengths within the participants, and how to best utilize those strengths. Cindy and Keith were great to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking to gain professional and personal growth.
-Patuk Glenn, ASRC Project Manager

Guided focus is at the heart of Keith’s coaching
I hired Keith because I just could not get organized at work and make forward progress. I understood what my agency leadership role should be, but I felt a frustrating disconnect between my vision and my daily activities.
Keith helped me map out a clear path ahead. He provided the focused exploration to help me bring out the best in myself. I came away from Keith’s VIP day with renewed excitement and confidence. I knew I could mold my team into a team with a winning spirit, enthused about their ability to focus on achieving — a team that could excel.
Guided focus was at the heart of Keith’s coaching. He helped me move my thought process forward and take the necessary action steps to realize my vision. Keith equipped me with a plan AND the confidence and accountability to take action.
Keith’s decades in the insurance industry means he understands the wide scope of what we do as insurance agents. He really gets that the solutions are at times complex. After working with Keith, I can see how he is able to help agents create successful insurance agencies by bringing a broad inventory of successful best industry practices.
An amazing listener, Keith has a remarkable ability to take things I was trying to articulate and cull them into a concise direction for moving forward.
As a bonus, my work with Keith also inspired me to examine my life beyond work, and start thinking about how to create equity among the different areas of my life.
Keith’s skilled coaching led me though the weeds and helped me get “unstuck.” After being stalled out, thanks to our work together, I am back on track with new skills and tools. Both my agency vision and my quest for better life balance are works in progress, but I now have a game plan for getting where I want to go. I see the value of working with Keith and know that I will continue to reach out to him as I move forward in realizing my agency vision. — Nancy Pipinich, Agent, Bothell, WA

I recently spent a little over an hour on a coaching call with Keith regarding Strengths-Based Leadership. Keith was strategically insightful in asking the right questions, diving a bit deeper where needed, making me THINK and offering powerful insights and suggestions.
His expert guidance helped me see greater ways to utilize my strengths to reach desired outcomes while balancing them for greater communication and leadership success. I can’t wait until our next call. Thanks, Keith, for your generosity of spirit and wisdom

I would strongly recommend Cindy
Cindy served as an invaluable resource for me. She was the first person I went to when a need arose and always provided me with the advice I needed to solve said problem. She is intelligent, effective, and genuinely cares about the people around her. I would be overjoyed to work with her again and strongly recommend her as a highly competent and a truly enjoyable person. – Sam Blankenship, IT Manager, City of Bethel, Alaska
Keith held my feet to the fire, asking me “How?” and “When?”
Before working with Keith, we had a positive work environment, but we lacked focus and structure. Our results were positive, but I wasn’t confident we could sustain them. We suffered from a lack of personal and team accountability. I never really knew if the activities needed for success were actually being done.
Keith encouraged me to take time to think about the business. His knowledge and experience around insurance agencies equips him to understand the common struggles agents have and how to overcome them. Keith’s many years of experience in the industry made his suggestions — and even his questions — credible. Keith became my encouraging and resourceful accountability partner, always offering informed, unbiased insights into the struggles I was facing. He didn’t try to answer things for me; rather, he challenged me to come up with my own solutions. His feedback was always honest and direct. When I said I wanted to change something, he would hold my feet to the fire, asking me “How?” and “When?” I felt like he was invested as my partner in success. With Keith’s coaching, I’ve become more purposeful in how I prioritize my time. I’m now an active participant in the development of my people – not a spectator. This makes my days at the office so much more fulfilling. Even my time away from the office has improved, because I’m now less worried about what’s coming at work. I know I’m prepared for whatever lies ahead. Since I’ve become more proactive at work, I can be more in the moment at home. If you genuinely want to see positive changes, I can’t imagine a better person than Keith to give you that push to go for greatness.

Keith helped me “Name, Claim, and Aim” my Strengths
Even in a very short amount of time, Keith was able to not only help me analyze my StrengthFinders results, but also steer me in a direction to set a near term goal, purposefully using these strengths. In the follow up coaching session he honed in on where I can tweak to succeed in future similar scenarios. His demeanor is inviting and very relaxing. When others may seem critical about “basement” aspects of a particular strength, Keith still managed to find the ability to be accepting and dedicated to help root out the cause of destructive behavior/un-achieved results. I highly recommend coaching from Mr. Baldwin to anyone who is seeking guidance on how to use their strengths! – Amanda M., Govt. Intelligence, Tampa, Florida
Guidance and Understanding!
Talking with Cindy showed me that I had the strength to step out of my comfort zone and make major life altering decisions in my career. I was able to express my fears to her and she immediately turned those doubts into exciting avenues of change.
Drawing from her own professional experience and growth, she took the time to help me discover what was really important to me and how I could go after what I really wanted.
I recommend Cindy’s council to anyone looking for direction when faced with choosing different pathways in career or personal life choices. – Brenda Marie Kincannon, IOM – Marketing & Brand Management Influencer Anchorage, AK
Turn Business Dreams, Goals, and Vision into Action!
I highly recommend Keith for any insurance agent who wants to turn their business dreams, goals and vision into action. I hired Keith because I wanted to optimize my business. I figured that, if professional golfers and race car drivers have professional coaches, why not insurance agents?
Keith helped me focus and prioritize, holding me accountable for the goals and objectives that I set for my agency and team. With Keith’s support, my team is more energized and proactive. Working relationships are better and I’m seeing improved results and increased productivity. What’s more, there’s a new sense of excitement in the office. Keith is a pleasure to work with. He is totally client-focused and knows how to create a bond of trust. His coaching agenda is always about me and my office. His broad knowledge spans coaching, leadership and management techniques. The positive changes Keith has helped me make in my business are feeding over into my personal life. The investment is well worth it. A coaching session with Keith doesn’t feel like work — it feels like I’m building a better me and a better Al Bowler Insurance Agency. — Al Bowler, Agent, Eagle River, AK
Keith very quickly helped me see who I am and leverage my strengths.
When I first started working with Keith, my greatest challenge was learning how to market myself as an architect. Keith has an amazing ability to listen, remember, recall and connect pieces of our conversations. He showed me that I had been assessing myself in terms of weaknesses to be improved. He’s been coaching me to focus instead on my strengths to be leveraged. With Keith’s coaching, I’ve been able to attribute self-doubt to the struggles inherent in starting a new business. Thanks to Keith’s advice, I remain alert to the chatter of the “gremlins.” He’s taught me to focus on my successes. Keith is a fantastic listener and he very quickly helped me see who I am and leverage my strengths. He makes me feel heard, valued and important. — Michael Wangen, Architect, Bainbridge Island, WA
Big Goals… Now, I don’t hold back!
I have always had big goals, but I had a fear of being selfish. I realized I’d been trained to play “small.” After working with Keith, I don’t hold back. His coaching has helped me discover that I have always been capable of so much more. — Anthony Lopez, Cisco/IT, Temecula, CA
