Empowering Teams Foster Creativity


When organizational cultures cultivate safety, trust and risk-taking, employees bring their best self to work.

Great leaders can thrive and support their teams when they are:

  • Self-Reflective
  • Purpose-Centred
  • Action-Oriented
  • Other-Focused
  • Adaptive
  • Confident
  • Humble
  • Audacious
  • Empowering

Thriving Teams Stem From Inspiring Leadership

Are you craving a team that’s vibrant, collaborative, and impactful? 

Do you wish you could handle difficult workplace situations with curiosity and courage?

Do you often find yourself thinking, there has to be a better way?

Are you wondering if there is something you are not seeing?

Today’s organizations face an ever-changing landscape with less surety and more complex decision-making than ever before.

Sometimes leaders can get stuck in a self-perpetuating system that isn’t working, and staying in that state drains their energy, creativity, motivation, productivity, and can even negatively impact their physical and mental health and wellness.

However, moving towards a transformational state of leadership pushes us out of our comfort-seeking state and ironically when we leave the comfort-zone we can step out of stagnation and into new vitality.

Organizational Inquiry and Change Management

When we are close to our problems and challenges, it can be difficult to see all facets of what is really going on. A third party perspective can provide insights otherwise unavailable. When Kathy is invited to partner with a leader or organization, she comes in as a trusted confidant with an objective curiosity about barriers and challenges facing people and teams.

Kathy is equipped with a collection of tools and processes that can be customized to your organization’s needs. Throughout the process, optimizing the key outcomes that matter to your business are always front of mind.

Organizational Development

Your people are your most valuable, and often underutilized, resource. When team members thrive and are given opportunities to succeed, their innovation and creativity can dramatically impact organizational success.

Conflict is no longer seen as negative, because in a culture where respect is honoured, those differing opinions can lead to a better way of doing things.  

Depending on the needs of your organization, Kathy can facilitate growth and exploration in the following areas…

  • Trust-building
  • Self-awareness
  • Interpersonal awareness
  • Team building
  • Team communication
  • Empowerment

Open the door to possibility and grow a resilient, resourceful and impactful organization by exploring organizational consulting and training.

The Role of Spiritual Intelligence

Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) is defined as the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation. As leaders, SQ can inspire employees to improve performance and embrace comfort in the face of uncertainty. 

Spiritual Intelligence complements any Leadership or Organizational Development program by enhancing learning, embracing creativity and encouraging safe environments which can create a competitive edge over other organizations. 

When leaders and teams are invited to bring their soul to the workplace and tap into their Spiritual Intelligence, they become better thinkers who focus on the bigger picture and higher purpose.
