Personal Note from Kat . . .

There are days (aka "daze") when I wake up thinking, "What the Bleep!" And other days when I bound out of bed excited to take on the day. This roller coaster we're on is real and my new best friend is "Grace!" Be kind to yourself and others as we all do our very best to support one another through this time of uncertainty and all that goes with it.

Are we having fun yet?

Disruption can be painful and at the same time, transformational. For Kat, it’s yet another opportunity for reinvention. Something she knows a lot about. Kat has a long history of reinvention and doing so under fire – with immediate and long-lasting results. She is known for doing the seemingly impossible and coming out the other side better for it.

For many companies, it’s requiring that they repurpose what they do to address changing demands. In some cases, they literally need to reinvent themselves. For others, it’s requiring heart-breaking decisions that result in laying off or furloughing loyal staff. In every case, this often needs to be done overnight in the face of uncertainty and confusion.


It’s difficult at best to be objective when you’re under fire and so close in. Kat knows first hand how important having a coach is, especially nowadays. It's been a lifesaver for her and she wants to BE that for others. Kat is committed to working with you to make sure you and your company come out the other side of this crisis, better than ever . . . because of the steps you're taking each day towards your new priorities.

Kat is in the people business


Every business is dependent 100% on its people to deliver on their promises. Leading people during this crisis and beyond will determine how people respond and the results you will achieve. Let's face it, even under the best of circumstances, people dynamics can be challenging, especially when it comes to communicating across the organization and with different generations. 


Understanding and appreciating generational distinctions is more important than ever! We've compiled years of research and experience into a series of insightful infographics to help you with that. If you'd like help putting those insights into practice, let's connect
