“Cathy's coaching has made an enormous difference in my career and in my confidence as both a leader and a manager. She brings strategic thinking, and sharp intuition, coupled with compassion and understanding, to every conversation. I appreciate how quickly and fully she understands the challenges and opportunities that I describe. Our time together is efficient and effective - always. She consistently delivers advice, insight, coaching, and a lot of fresh thinking in the areas that are most critical for my growth. Cathy’s executive coaching has been the most significant source of professional growth and development for me over the last five years.”

"What I love about Cathy's style is that she asks lots of probing and insightful questions and listens carefully to my responses. She then offers a critical lens. She is like an experienced personal trainer at the gym that pushes you hard to get results and your workout becomes far more effective than anything you can do on your own."
-Business Development Executive, Financial Services
"I have been working with Cathy as I transitioned into a leadership role in a highly matrixed organization. Cathy was instrumental in helping me truly understand my strengths as a leader - and helping me leverage them to build a new team and establish priorities for the organization. Cathy's advice was key in helping me navigate potential challenges or 'watch-out' moments in my critical first few months in the role."
-Head of Marketing, Investor-owned Energy Company
"Cathy is both a keen listener and a strategic thinker. She challenges presumptions and presents other perspectives for consideration. She gently but firmly pushes you to embrace new possibilities and find creative solutions to complex situations. At the end of a conversation with Cathy, I feel energized and equipped with an action plan and path forward."
