Ignite your leadership.

Elevate your impact.

Are you navigating the shift from a stellar employee to a manager of people, and feeling the weight of leadership on your shoulders?

Do you aspire to cultivate a thriving team culture, master crucial conversations, and become a leader known for resilience and agility?

Are you ready to not just survive but thrive in your leadership journey, armed with practical skills and a unique leadership philosophy?

Are you seeking a dynamic program that not only equips you with tools but also provides a growth guide for becoming an influential mentor?

With over two decades of experience in human resources, organizational development, and executive coaching, Dr. Katie is a seasoned expert in guiding professionals through crucial career transitions. She knows the challenges that people face when stepping into leadership roles. As an executive coach, Dr. Katie has empowered countless leaders to navigate the complexities of management, fostering environments of growth and success.

Author of the Amazon #1 New Release in Human Resources, You Might Be an Asshole… But It Might Not Be Your Fault! and host of the podcast The Path to Leadership, Dr. Katie brings a refreshing and candid perspective to leadership development.

I've been given some major impactful tools that have helped me grow as a leader—even just the growth of confidence in myself. I've learned so much about myself as a leader. Katie and her team have provided us with tools that have helped me grow in conflict resolution, leadership growth, and holding people accountable with compassion. On top of that, Katie, Jenna and Emma are fantastic leaders in Kansas City who are always willing to help when you need anything. I will always recommend Catalyst Development to anyone who needs help or growth in their leadership journey.
