As an Executive Coach for Fortune Management, Kim McGuire brings over 15 years of leadership experience in sales and marketing to the Denver Dental community. Kim coaches Dental teams to understand and prioritize ‘what’s most important’, creating accountability, as well as incorporate the financial policies and office procedures necessary for the practice to run smoothly and efficiently.
Kim believes the coach-client relationship works best when it is co-managed–mutual trust, respect, open communication, and dedication to success – so that learning and growth are maximized. Her dedication to vision-based strategic planning creates a strong, supportive work environment focused on truly embracing the mission of the Doctor.
An energetic speaker, Kim leads workshops on topics such as Goal Setting, Case Presentation and Enrollment, Impact Marketing, Time Economics, Staff Accountability and Leadership. Participants will walk away with practical business solutions as well as a better understanding of how to communicate more effectively in their personal lives.
Some of Kim’s personal activities include yoga, international travel, skiing, and non-fiction reading. In addition to the extensive leadership training she has received through Fortune Management, she has completed her Life Coaching Certification through the acclaimed Coaches Training Institute, which complements her B.S. in Business Administration from California State University, Chico. Kim is a member of the Academy of Dental Management Consultants. Her commitment to lifelong learning & personal development enables Dental practices to achieve their personal and professional best. Originally from California, Kim has coached doctors in the San Francisco Bay area and the New York City metropolitan area before settling with her family in Denver, CO.
Kim as my personal coach: Kim always asks the right questions that help me clarify my thoughts and ideas in a non-judgmental way. Her support has kept me on track as a leader in organized dentistry, practice owner, husband and father.
Kim as my practice coach: She did not come with a template on how a practice should be and then attempt to “shoehorn” our practice into that template. Kim helped our team clarify our values and the vision of our practice. She helped me improve my leadership skills to help me be a more effective leader of our team.
She guided us though goal-setting exercises and then helped us implement structures to achieve these goals. She has always been available to speak with us personally (team and doctors) to help us overcome any unforeseen obstacles.
The team learning modules have given us tools to maximize our contributions to our practice and each team member’s personal visions. With these tools, my team has gelled into a cohesive unit of ladies that support each other and the patients that we serve.
She is an accomplished writer and speaker. I would say that she is motivating in just about any venue!
I highly recommend Kim and the coaches at Fortune Management for anyone looking to grow – personally and/or professionally. I consider her a valued colleague and, even more, a valued friend.

“I have worked professionally with Kim since the summer of 2009 and she has been my business coach through Fortune Management. She has conducted in-house workshops, attended our bi-monthly staff meetings bringing communication and team building exercises for our team to work on, and has conducted off site seminars. She has performed these tasks with professionalism, great insight and enthusiasm. To Kim’s credit, this past year with her guidance and encouragement we have increased production, created and achieved goals, formulated staff accountability and have improved office systems. With her leadership abilities, we are moving toward our ‘ideal’ dental practice!”
