ABOUT USLearn more about Team Awesome.
There are a lot of amazing leaders out there that at some point have felt like an outlier. We know what it has been like to feel misunderstood, capable of more, or feel small. We specialize in high-potential leaders who are outliers: the misunderstood potential of Millennials, the quiet strength of introverts, or leaders who have been so successful they don’t realize where they are holding themselves back from even higher levels. This is what you have been searching for. Are you ready to be part of Team Awesome?
A NOTE FROM KATIE
Finally, you’ve made it. I am glad you are here.
I love coaching and developing leaders, and it’s been my passion since, well, forever. Think of the impact that one single leader has on the world through the ripple effect of their actions. I can’t wait to help you understand and optimize the effect you have on the world.
I am usually the outlier. I have often found myself to be the youngest person in the board room, the only woman in the group, or the only leader who seems to see things from a different viewpoint. And as a result, I felt small. It is sometimes hard for us to see where we are getting in our way, and giving myself the permission to play bigger (no really, way bigger) was the break through that I needed.
This is the place to feel heard, get out of your own way, and realize the potential that you weren’t allowing yourself to own. We are way too awesome to be playing small, and you were meant for bigger things than a slow death by conference calls.
Let’s get started.
Katie is a TEDx speaker alumna, author of the best-selling book, Hidden Brilliance: A High-Achieving Introvert’s Guide to Self-Discovery, Leadership and Playing Big, and co-host of The Life and Leadership Podcast.
