As a leader and facilitator, she was both fluid and focused, fierce and nurturing, spending time where the team needed to go deeper and going far beyond the established agenda for the day to make sure we were all aligned in the same direction. Catherine is a gem and a true professional. Visionary, strong, and grounded. I had the privilege of learning from Catherine at an all day team building session with a diverse team of leaders. What impressed me first: her total commitment to the work that needed to be done for the team to understand each other and to know ourselves better to improve our performance. She set a powerful context to open difficult conversations quickly.
