About Catherine

I exist to transform managers into inspiring leaders


I have over 25 years experience in leadership, communication and conflict management and am a certified Power Coach with Mind Kinetics™.   My expertise is in establishing a solid framework to help clients focus on what matters most and move forward on their goals in life and work.


I’ve learned that vulnerability is showing up as we really are without guarantees. I enjoy learning about myself and others and challenge myself to take risks and reach for what’s important. There have been many times in my life when I’ve had to leave the familiar behind and start over, set a new direction and overcome challenges. I’ve felt fear, discomfort and uncertainty.


I help leaders to act in alignment with their values, honour their strengths and focus on important goals.  I establish a safe environment for my clients where they can take risks, believe in themselves and create the life they desire.


I know how to help you change your life. My science based and holistic coaching approach transforms your thinking and establishes new belief systems that strengthen your body, mind and spirit.


I have a reputation for solid thinking and look at problems with careful reasoning and empathy.  I’m known to have a gentle, positive approach and am a respectful, warm and encouraging listener.


My core values in my work, volunteer and personal life are.

  • Making a difference
  • Gratitude
  • Leadership
  • Kindness
  • Dependability


I’m the author of three books:

  • Does Anybody Hear Me? How Leaders Communicate So People Will Listen

  • Be the Leader They Love!: Attracting, Developing and Retaining People While Earning Their Trust

  • Building Bridges to Agreement: The Art of Principled Negotiation


One of my priorities is to give back to my community. I currently tutor adults who have immigrated to Canada and need to improve their speaking and writing skills in order to advance in their workplace or be accepted for post secondary education.
