ALL TRAINING and WORKSHOPS can be done VIRTUALLY
Through the Jon Gordon Companies, Kate's most sought after program as Jon's lead workshop facilitator, is the Power of Positive Leadership and Power of Positive Teams workshops. Often paired with Jon Gordon as a Keynote speaker, or as a stand alone event, or package of workshops to bring to entire organizations, these workshops take the books' powerful proven principles and bring them to life through engaging activities and presentation for long term success rather than short term motivation.
Since the release of Wall Street Bestseller, Stick Together, coauthored with Jon Gordon and over 70 thousand copies sold, the 7 principles to build stronger teams has been transforming teams all over the globe. Feedback from organizations and teams that have been through the Stick Together workshops has been an overwhelming theme of team buy-in, refueled leadership, recommitment to goals and purpose, and measurable results. The transformation is often visible as perspective and commitment shift even before the training is complete.
After the release of Kate's latest book, Superpower, individuals and teams have been embracing the power in our diversity, in our unique perspectives, traits, experiences, and abilities. Teachers have named this fable as a must read for all pre-teens and teens who struggle with fitting in and self-worth, and CEO's have dubbed it the confidence builder and the advice everyone deserved to have growing up but never got. Superpower workshops are a celebration and exploration of who we are authentically, and how that elevates our mission, purpose, and drive to succeed and build powerful connections. Where we are similar we come together to relate, but where we are UNIQUE and DIFFERENT are where we add value. These differences are not flaws, they are our INIMITABLE superpowers!
These interactive deep dives have been creating powerful results within sports teams of all levels from youth through professional, well as business teams, leadership groups, directors summits, universities, and non-profit organizations.
As a consultant to leadership, coaches, and organizations around the US, Kate has helped create packages, programs, short and long term solution building, and curriculum to drive performance and engagement through a better connected culture.
Collegiate Leadership Programs:
Kate works on a range of projects from individual leadership coaching, to packaging workshops, speaking, and direct meetings with leadership and teams, as well as creating a full 4 year Leadership Academy for Universities' student athletes. She is currently building out the leadership program for University of Denver, a project that will soon be available to all universities to implement and brand to their athletic department based on the books and proven principles from Jon Gordon's best selling books. This program is tiered to cover the entire 4 year experience of each athlete, bringing them through to graduation where they will have earned a leadership certificate and master the skills of leading self, influencing teammates, leadership, and transitioning into a leader after college.
