Facilitation & Team Development
Teamwork has proven to be more critical to organizational success than strategy, finance or technology. My belief is that the combination of conversational capacity and psychological safety is the jet fuel needed for people and organizations to thrive.
Focus areas with teams can include :
My passion for nonprofits
In addition to working with businesses, I love helping nonprofit organizations develop the synergy they need to deliver on their mission. I have been a fundraising and board development coach for dozens of nonprofits throughout the US & Canada. Prior to launching my coaching & consulting practice, I spent a decade in business banking, working with nonprofits on financial sustainability.
I have held leadership roles as Interim Executive Director, Development Director and served on several boards including the Nonprofit Management Program at the University of Washington, where I taught a popular class on Nonprofit Financial Management for Fundraising professionals.

What clients say...
I worked with Kathe on creating a strong business team. She's high energy, strongly motivational, with solid insights. The connections she makes are both warm and business savvy. She helped to transform the team to a higher level of effectiveness in just a few sessions.
Kathe has the ability to see beyond today, craft a long term vision, articulate that vision with enthusiasm and then execute the vision successfully.
