Our Program

Our System

Step 1:

We meet with you to discuss the challenges your organization is facing and work with you to conduct our Organizational Health Assessment. We will sit down with you to go through the results and discuss areas of strength and potential areas for improvement for us to focus on. Based on this, we will recommend: (a) a Keynote address, followed by a workshop (which we call a Playshop) or (b) an Awakened Strategy Tune Up or Reset session followed by (a).

Step 2:

Working closely with you, we will design and deliver our Keynote, Playshop and Strategy Session to you, based on our Awakened Company System:

  • Outcomes of the Strategy Session: greater clarity on the purpose and direction of your organization and by-in from your team.
  • Outcomes of the Keynote and Playshop: a Team Development & Individual Relationship Plan with specific, trackable behaviours.

Step 3:

After a period of time (6 months-1 year), we will conduct our Organization Health Assessment again to measure improvements in your: company’s and team’s performance, individual relationships and individual development & performance.

Step 4:

After seeing measurable improvement to the company, team and individual, we work with you to develop ongoing team and individual programs for continued growth and improvement.

6 Key Areas of Our Program

Our Program is energized by proven business practices of outstanding corporate leaders and leading business researchers, and infused with perennial insights from the world’s wisdom traditions.  We will work with you to develop a bespoke program to meet you and your team’s needs.

Keynotes

Catherine shows leaders how to use their heads, hearts, and hands to awaken a new and better way of working together. While the recommendations are counter-intuitive, the results are both practical and deeply impactful. Audiences will leave with the ability to act on three important aspects of their experience and maximize their potential. The result will be industry-leading productivity, innovation, collaboration, communication, and job satisfaction. Customized to clients’ needs, Catherine’s presentations are high impact, content rich conference experiences and keynote speeches.

3-Day Playshops

Our Playshops are deeply impactful, real, and joyous, leaving individuals, relationships, and teams with key actionable takeaways.

Our three-day Playshops focus on the following key attributes of an Awakened Company:

  1. Leadership Awakening – self-awareness and self-development.
  2. Awakening Relationships – improving one:one relationships within organizations. Individual Relationship Plans will be created with actionable behaviours that can be tracked over time.
  3. Awakening Team and Organizations – assessing level of health in the organization and creating team development plan with actionable behaviours that can be tracked over time.

Year-Long Programs

Comprehensive, intensive playshops and coaching support to transform leadership, culture and organizations. In this program, we use these tools from the Awakened Company System to help you build better leaders, teams and organizations:

  • Awakened Assessment Tool – to determine the overall health of your organization. Assessments will be done at the beginning, middle and end of the program to track and benchmark improvement
  • Strategy Session
