We cultivate conditions for belonging in the fine grains of your soil.
Getting tiny, we help your mission, vision + values permeate the
daily experience of diverse teams + stakeholders.
The quality of our relationships is the #1 predictor of our wellbeing. Cultures that promote wellbeing have a greater positive impact on their clients, employees, and stakeholders.
We are wired to connect deeply and broadly, so we work with our social natures when we invest the attention, honesty, time, and energy into our relationships with ourselves, each other, and our environments.
Hiring for EQ is great, but the need to train to enhance EQ is a huge advantage. Relationships change, meaning we can always take our mastery to new levels.
You matter. You are irreplaceable. Your presence, experience, wisdom, personality, life story and skills are totally unique, respected, and given a place to flourish. You belong here.
Why am I doing this? All work can be meaningful if we connect our tasks and role to the larger purposes we're serving in the company and in the world. We prioritize staying connected to our personal + professional purpose in the micro, mundane tasks as well as the epic ones.
We are all wired to create and aren't fulfilled unless we're given a range of freedom to tinker and make decisions. We consider everyone a creator and the organization as a network of co-creators.
Having fun, playing, laughing is core not just to excellent performance, but to cultivating joy and well-being. We use a Joy Meter to see where things are awesome to help direct all policy and metrics.
We train around + reward kindness above all other leadership attributes because it is literally the heart of any organization that aims to create a people-based culture from the inside out.
Where do we start? Where you are. We do a soil assessment of your ecosystem, look for the magic beans that are working, and anticipate needs and opportunities.
.Based on Phase 1, we craft an integrated plan of pilot projects, communications, measurements, and infrastructure needs .
We will run rapid, mini pilots from work in Phases 1 + 2. The efforts that show life will be adopted and adapted to more contexts.
Everything we design is one-of-a-kind, 100% hand-made for your exact needs + goals.
We partner with leaders across industries, across org charts + org sizes
+ across project development phases.
.We specialize in outside-the-box solutions to nearly impossible challenges.
"Without a doubt, I’d work with Cat again on any project of consequence."
- Greg S., CEO, Shadowbox
"If there are others more naturally “people-centered” than Cat, I've never met them. So in the areas of community, connectedness, interpersonal-relatedness or simple friendship from one human being to another, I can't recommend Cat highly enough. If you're in the business of people in any fashion, consider her an asset. You will be thankful that you found her."
- Cedi A., Principal, Night Fire Media
"When my time is blocked off for a meeting with Cat, I know with confidence that it is going to be time well spent ... Recently she has helped me face the fears of starting a business and creatively letting go in my writing, allowing me to move forward in my dreams with confidence!"
