Your Leadership Edge: Purposefully Planning Your Leadership Efforts

As leaders, we are so busy doing our “work,” getting things done, and focusing on results that we end up putting our “leadership” responsibilities on the back burner. Move your leadership efforts from reactive to proactive in this powerfully practical session that will blast your leadership into a new realm of awesome. Kat covers the secret weapons that will make leadership the easiest part of your job, including:

  • Putting yourself first in order to make more progress and meet everyone else’s needs while you do it
  • The critical foundation for leadership success and how to build it into the way you work
  • How to leverage infrastructure as the secret sauce to getting leadership right
  • Thinking about processes and systems to help manage all the moving pieces of your role

Don’t Be a Lame Leader: How to Embrace the Leader Within to Stand Out from the Crowd

You have the position, the title, & the paycheck. But have you fully stepped IN to your leadership potential? Be the leader you want to follow. Be the leader your team needs you to be. Be the leader your clients are looking for. In this highly energizing presentation, Kat will inspire you to push yourself to excellence, beyond excuses, beyond fear, and beyond doubt.

  • Understand what the world’s worst leaders do and be clear on what NOT to do
  • Hear about behind the scenes secret leadership failures learned from over 20 years of experience [be prepared to laugh]
  • Reflect on your leadership habits and make a plan to guide your next steps
  • Have no doubt about what it will take for you to master your leadership journey for maximum impact

Master Leadership and Life by Harnessing Your Energy

To be a great leader there are three critical energies to master: Connection, Engagement, and Performance. How do you measure up in these three energies and are you ready to face the future of leadership?

In Kat’s cornerstone presentation, she will lead you through a new model of Purposeful Leadership to help guide your intentions to a successful future. You will leave with:

  • An understanding of the three critical energies for today’s leaders so that you can achieve what you want to achieve and have the life you want to have
  • A reflective checklist for evaluating your own energies and clarity on gaps so that you can lead from your areas of strength – so that you can focus on the right things and offload the rest
  • A clear idea of what gets in your way so that you blast through to the impact you are meant to have
  • A renewed sense of direction and commitment in your own leadership journey


Up Level Your Leadership and Your Life by Creating More Whitespace

Our brains are the maestros of our life: our failures, our successes and every single one of our experiences. It is critical to understand the powers at play behind every thought you have and every action you take. Hear about how I found myself in utter chaos and my simple solution that can help us all to improve your relationships, strengthen your connections, increase your productivity, and be the leader others need you to be. Kat will leverage the best of current neuroscience insights to help you:

  • Understand the role your brain plays in your daily experiences and interactions
  • Explore how to better align the heart with the brain so that you can make better decisions and long-term plans
  • Gain tips on how to set your brain up for success every day and maximize your energy
  • Leverage the importance of adding whitespace to each day so you can achieve a better balance yet accomplish even more

In this extremely pragmatic session, Kat will enlighten, engage, and inspire leaders through a transition to a new role by covering:

  • How to establish a framework to guide yourself through the transition into your new role
