Signature Programmes

Leverage Your Strengths
8 Week Programme

This is an intensive accelerator programme which provides 8 hours of one to one support  on a semi structured development plan – further  shaped by both of us based on your needs when we start working together.

The programme includes flowbooks, videos, and a done with you service – I spend 8 hours with you and 4 hours behind the scenes tailoring the experience and opening up pathways for you to step into your personal power.

You will receive all content relevant to all my corporate career support courses as well, either through attendance or slide decks and loom recordings.

I keep you accountable in this programme by answering all your messages or texts for up to 3 months.

Get in touch to find out more before you make this committment – as it needs to be right for the goals you want to acheive. Let’s talk it through.

Career Strategy Intensive

In a hurry for a solution? This is an intensive Career Strategy half day with added bells and whistles.

We will do a desk top exercise to work out what suits you and build an execution plan.

While this service solves an immediate problem, and meets the demand of some customers, it does not offer deep transformational change.

If you choose this option, then decide to upgrade to the leverage your strenghts package, you will only pay the difference, when ever you decide to do it.

 

THIS IS PERSONAL!

“Career sketching is my signature offer to support driven professionals like you to achieve more with balance.

My vision is to help you transcend the very notion of work.”

I do this because I wished someone did this for me., during 20 years of successful but imbalanced corporate life.

As you feel the impact of the economic pressure, job fallout and difficult decisions, I recognise your frustrations, as that anxiety creeps in, no matter where you sit in the organisational chart.
 

I designed this career sketching programme to help you address the volatility and complexity that has grown in our ever connected lives, and craft a path to fulfilment that enriches you.

embrace both the challenge and the fear

Are you craving gently pliant structures, and seamless systems,

to deliver on control with freedom?

Do you want to give more free reign to your teams, but not sure how to balance this with results?

What our clients say

Customers reviews

What a result! In the first 5 minutes of speaking face to face with Katherine, I knew I was experiencing a kind of training that was rare. The hardest thing to achieve during coaching sessions is a deep level of trust and respect. When I explained my unique experiences to Katherine, she deeply understood what I was describing and feeling. Very quickly we have been able to develop a synthesis in our coach/student dynamic that allows me to make great progress between our sessions. If you have hit a wall in your career, or you face challenges that feel too complex to think through on your own, speak to Katherine. I’m certain she will help you find a way forward!
Thomas
Chief Operations Officer
Highly recommended, even in remote sessions Over the past 4 months I have had regular coaching sessions with Katherine. Because we live in different countries, we worked over Skype with excellent results. The main objective was to guide me through the process of finding a new job, but the results went beyond that. The program is designed under a holistic strategy, approaching different areas relevant for self-development. As a result, I have gained self- confidence and clarity on my objectives which have been very helpful not only on the hiring process but also, on my approach on other matters that are important for my progress. Katherine is a passionate person, highly committed and hard worker. Her critical thinking abilities and the vast professional experience she has, makes her a strong reliable decision maker. She had a very friendly approach with high ethical and professional standards. I highly recommend her coaching sessions as well as her consultancy programs.
Cynthia A
Operations Director
I have worked with Katherine in her “Corporate” life phase. Already at that time I found always very inspiring talking with her about matters which concerned human behavior in corporate world. Katherine is a very serious and strong professional, her passion comes through at the first encounter and her curiosity for learning and self improvement is a constant in her life. With all her background, her knowledge and her attitude she is the best person to go to for advice and support in critical moments throughout your career!

Frequently asked questions

Mentors and coaches both have a vital role to play in your personal and career development. A mentor is a specialist in a discipline or domain, with great leadership insights you can learn from.

A coach on the otherhand is a specialist at helping you tap into your core strengths, and providing you with the tools to gain greater self empowerment.

Coaches and mentors have different levels of training to perform their roles. There are coaches who can be mentors, as often the best coaches come from a rich background and experiences, but these roles are done best when they are separated, as it helps you streamline and focus on what you need from whom.

ROI for a coaching engagement varies greatly, as it is a service that depends on your goals. If you want to accelerate some specific outcome, then you and your coach can work together to define that measurable result before you begin your engagement. Outcomes I have acheived for my clients included early and unplanned salary increases, more job offers, expanded networks, greater personal gravitas. It all depends on the goals you set together.

We design bespoke services after our initial consultation. The leverage your strengths programme is tailored for you by both of us, to ensure we can give you what you need. If I am not right for your particular need, I will let you know it, and refer you to others who can.

I own empathy as a strength, and intuition as a gift, and curiosity as a value. Those 3 things have given me all my career success, regardless of the fields I’ve worked in. I decided in 2019 to go full throttle on my strengths, and this career sketching programme is one of the greatest outputs of that focus.

I am a polymath, that influences my learning across multiple disciplines. My coaching services are distinctive because of my depth in empathy, intuition and curiosity, and my breadth across STEAM fields and traditional careers.
