Leadership & Professional Development


Let’s work together.

YOU’VE WORKED HARD TO BUILD YOUR DREAM TEAM. NOW it’s time to help them thrive as individuals so that your organization can do the same. how? by investing in the growth & development of your high potential, emerging leaders who are stepping up to manage projects and teams — often for the first time.

Doing so means empowering your emerging leaders to do brave work: to have difficult conversations, to give and receive feedback, to lead authentically — especially when things are uncertain or risky. Cultivate a courageous culture like that, and you’ll find not only higher employee engagement, but also happier clients, partners, and investors.

In other words, investing in your people pays off.

Did you know…

  • Engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave their companies than their disengaged counterparts.

  • The cost of replacing an employee is 50-250% of their annual salary + benefits.

  • Companies with engaged employees saw 2.5x more revenue compared to competitors with low engagement levels.

What to do about it? Invest in your people by providing well-designed learning and development opportunities to foster more fulfillment, connection, and engagement. I work with organizations who are looking to intentionally develop their team to do just that.

I can help you:

  • Support your team’s innate desire to learn and grow.

  • Empower your employees to craft their own courageous career development paths.

  • Create opportunities for your employees to authentically connect and support one another.

  • Counterbalance managers who don’t have the time or know-how to provide enough coaching to their direct reports.

  • Keep employees connected to the culture and values of your organization. 

To inquire about working together, please set up an introductory call with me to talk about your organization’s needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

I’m here to help by providing:



Looking to boost a specific skillset among your team? I provide what I like to call “workshops in a box” where I facilitate 1-2 hour interactive, hands-on workshops to enable tangible leadership skills.

Topics include: Maximizing Team Strengths, Integrating a Growth Mindset, Fostering Resilience, Creating Authentic Connections on Teams, Giving & Receiving Feedback with Impact, Situational Leadership, Managing Up, and Effective 1:1s.

Seeking a workshop on another topic? Let’s talk!

coaching for emerging professionals


While many organizations focus solely on executive coaching for their most seasoned leaders, there’s a whole fleet of emerging leaders ready to move your organization forward. They’re driven, full of potential…and often overlooked. I provide both group and 1:1 coaching to help your emerging leaders find their footing and hone their authentic leadership style.

Whether you have a group of high potentials or new managers on your hands, together we can customize a coaching program for your emerging leaders to meet your needs. I’ve conducted 6-week group coaching programs with a consistent cohort as well as 6-month 1:1 coaching with several employees within an organization. Contact me to discuss a coaching program that works for your team.

learning and development programs


Looking for a tailored approach? With experience designing in-person intensives, interactive 1-2 hour labs, experiential learning opportunities, blended learning + coaching programs and more, I’d love to design and deliver custom programs that meet your team’s needs.

Katherine brings a perfect blend of professionalism, enthusiasm and subject matter expertise to each workshop she leads.
— Will, Embedded Software Expert

Happy Clients


“How do you manage, over the course of three days, to take a group of 25 strangers and turn them into a team? How do you find the balance between sticking to an agenda and allowing room for the personalities of said group to breathe it's own life into the process? I can honestly say that my cultural onboarding experience with Katherine was the best I've had in my professional life. Whether we were discussing company initiatives or being personally vulnerable in break-out sessions, Katherine was instrumental in creating an atmosphere that felt safe and allowed participants to share and grow. I loved working with Katherine and am thankful for the onboarding experience she brought to life.”

— josh, sales director


“The first thing you will notice about Katherine is her welcoming authenticity. Then, within only minutes, you are drawn to her engaging stories, her relatable style and ability to connect a room full of people to both the material and each other. She's also exceptional at training beginners on how to become skilled facilitators - a program in which I had the pleasure to take part in! If Katherine is leading a personal coaching session, facilitating a large group or training the trainer, you can bet you will walk away with way more than you expected.”

— Rae, talent manager


“Katherine brings a perfect blend of professionalism, enthusiasm and subject matter expertise to each workshop she leads. Having had the honor of being in both in-person and virtual workshops that she's led, I always walked away feeling that she brought out each of the participants’ strengths (even if they didn't know that she did) and that we more than accomplished the objective of the workshop.”

— will, embedded software expert


“I participated in a week-long new hire training facilitated by Katherine and it was by far the most impactful session I have been a part of. She is incredibly talented and personable, thoughtfully creating a space where all members, regardless of background, are able to share and feel heard. I discovered new areas I need to improve on, as well as learned valuable lessons from other coworkers in the room, due to her facilitation style. Months later, I can still see the impact of her session affecting my life today, with the lessons continuously resonating with me. Her relaxed demeanor, motivational attitude, patience, and deep understanding of the subject matter is the perfect combination for a successful facilitator.”

— Caitlin, Sales Enablement Intern


“I first worked with Katherine at Stanford, where she built and ran a 6-week program to help students unlock their personalized, ideal career path within the healthcare industry. Katherine leveraged her L&D expertise and ran an effective and organized program with a net promoter score of 80. Katherine has an impressive arsenal of personal assessment and career growth tools. She is a certified coach and she has a knack for listening and giving people tools that are tailored to their situation. I often point colleagues in her direction because I’ve witnessed her providing so many folks with clarity and I have personally benefitted from her thoughtful questions, exercises and processes.”
