Groups (or teams if you prefer) navigating change require a facilitator to more quickly see the path forward, uncover group opportunities, and accelerate growth and development.
Why Work With Kathy?
- Receive a step-by-step process for working more effectively together

- Increase meeting effectiveness and shorten meeting times
What Is Kathy’s Hourly Charge For Services?
There are no hourly charges. There is one cost we negotiate upfront. Factors considered:
- Your budget and the results you want to achieve.
- Type of relationship needed for change – facilitator (during the meeting), coach (for the leader and/or individual team members), coordinator (meeting planning and follow-up), and adviser (in-the-moment insights and recommendations). All or some of these relationships may be helpful.
- Time – how frequently we need to meet. Some groups need more face-to-face time upfront to see them in action, plan for meetings, etc. Others do not. It depends on where your group is in their journey of working together.
- How long for the group work – shortest time has been a few weeks and the longest has been six months. Again, this depends on the group’s journey of working together.
What Does Kathy Expect Of Me?
- Open and willing to work more effectively together
- Interest in becoming more self-aware (both individually and as a group)
- Take responsibility for improving (both yourself and the group)
- Carve out time between group meetings to accomplish tasks
- Contribute fully during group meetings
