Kat's Love Letter to Leaders

Put simply, I’m on a mission to save the world from bad leaders. Because I’ve been up close and personal with them more times than I can count. More than half of leaders don’t take their responsibility seriously. They put the leadership part of their job on the back burner, focusing more on the fires and hot priorities of the moment. As a result, they wreak havoc on the workplace, which carries over into the personal lives of nearly everyone under their watch.

While I’ve seen the devastating effects of poor leadership, I’ve also seen the remarkable effects of outstanding leadership. Work environments where every employee is positioned to win. Innovative ideas spread like wildfire. Collaboration abounds. Sales skyrocket.

If there’s one thing I know, it’s this: exceptional leaders create room for exceptional performance.

Prior to opening Energize Leadership, I worked for my fair share of bad leaders in jobs where I couldn’t be my best self. In every case, I was hired for the magnetic, bright light I showcased in the interview process, but it didn’t take long for me to be told to dim my light. Instead of capitalizing on my strengths and creating a progressive environment where they could shine, my bosses saw and treated me as their greatest threat. And we all missed out on what could have been.

I began to understand what drives me, how I operate at my best and how I fit into the work I choose when I discovered assessment tools. They allowed me to find my place in this world and learn what I needed to do, how to do it and where to do it. And everything changed.

The truth is, everyone has a significant contribution to make through their work. But far too many aren’t given the opportunity to shine. And then, there are others who simply don’t believe they can make a worthwhile contribution. So they don’t. They spend their life underperforming—or what some may call, under-living.

I was born with a gift to see things most people can’t. When others see obstacles, I see opportunities. When others see problems, I see potential. When others see hurdles, I see hope. And that’s what I bring to the table. A badass spirit on a mission to develop leaders into game changers that make work a place people want to be in. Because it brings out the badass in you. And everyone loves a badass.

So leaders, this is why I created Energize Leadership. To be a different kind of leadership consultancy. One that focuses completely on helping leaders focus on bringing their whole self to the table, put the leadership part of their job FIRST, and be the badass leader they’re meant to be!
