Ignore Your Dreams or Live Them.
In an uncertain world, we have one primary goal: to offer the right insights, guidance, and support to help you discover your best self. We’re vigilant in our fulfillment of purpose, commitment to mastery, and achievement of exceptional results. Everyone deserves an opportunity to live up to their full potential, including you.
MISSION / ETHOS
Our mission as coaches is to provide customized and versatile support for young adults so they achieve their goals faster than they could on their own. Through this work, we change the world for our clients, families, and communities.
We bring an ethos of boldness, compassion, and excellence to every aspect of our coaching philosophy, from initial assessments to exercises and insights to support and guidance, no matter who we’re working with or where they are in their personal growth journeys.
Founded by master trainer and high-performance expert Greg Pestinger, Kykeon grew from Greg’s deep commitment to helping young people realize their full potential in order to impact the world in a positive way. This ripple effect of fulfillment and purpose forms the backbone of every assessment, insight, strategy, and guidance across Kykeon’s coaching programs and services.
