“Kate gave it to me straight, there was no pussy footing around or hidden agenda. She called it and identified instances so I couldn’t have any reaction other than to understand.”
Hi. I’m Katherine, and most of my clients call me Kate.
I’ve been coaching full-time since 2003 and have over 10,000 hours of direct coaching experience.
My education includes a Master of Science, Coaching Psychology from the University of Sydney, which leads the world in rigorous evidence-based coaching research, in addition to a Bachelor of Adult Education, which helps me inspire lifelong self-directed learning in my clients.
I use a combination of “evidence based coaching”, which means that my methodology is built on what has been repeatedly proven to be effective, partnered with a humanistic approach to adult development, encouraging my clients to unearth and harness their natural abilities and core values.
I’ve been developing leaders in particular since 2007, and my own leadership experience includes being elected President, International Coach Federation Australasia 2012, leading over 1,300 coaches across two countries.
Prior to coaching, my business experience included generating over $100 million of new business on the short term money market for Citibank within four months, through taking great care of my clients.
My Myers Briggs personality type is INTJ, which fewer than 1% of women in the U.S. possess. Whilst compassionate and flexible, I have, at core, a pragmatic, structured approach. Being female, I understand women, however my thinking is more masculine. You kind of get two-in-one with me.
Raised in Australia, I have lived and worked around the world since 1995. I’ve coached individuals of many nationalities and have had significant experience working with and adapting to different cultures. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, I also work virtually with clients around the world.
I am passionate about my vocation and learning; about understanding men and their journeys, my own development, and the degree to which I can be simultaneously honest and loving in my own life, and in service of my clients. I appreciate beauty, art, nature, wisdom, literature, and whatever is timeless.
When not working intensively with clients, I enjoy a peaceful life and spend a lot of time reading, walking, thinking, keeping a close knit group of friends. This is often interspersed with some radical adventure or life changing experience. It all comes out pretty even…
“As an ex-Army officer I demand the highest integrity levels from my business associates and I have found Kate to have a level of integrity rarely found in the business world.”
