WHAT WE DO
Catalyzing profound change in organizations since 2009
Foundational leadership training experience that explores the “basics.”
8 Hours, 10-15 Participants
Session 1 – Building Leaders of Character
Ethical constructs and dilemmas; practical exercises that offer solutions to common, business-oriented, “sticky” situations.
Session 2 – Understanding Emotional Intelligence
This small group discussion introduces participants to emotional intelligence as defined by Daniel Goleman. This session highlights the critical relationship between emotional intelligence and leadership excellence.
Session 3 – Leader as Self
The responsibility we bear to consider who we are as leaders is a big one. Before we begin to work productively with others, this leadership identity must be determined.
Journeys to Greatness
Tailored and effective programming that evolves with your team.
12-24 months, 10-30 participants
Tailored program for your organization’s specific needs. Needs are determined via organizational assessments and we ultimately work with leadership cohorts you specify (from the line to the boardroom). This program evolves with your team as you learn and grow. Topics include:
- All Leadership Boot Camp topics
- Building your Organizational Leadership Brand
- Communicating as a Leader
- Building on Accountability Culture
- Conflict Resolution
- Practical Succession Planning
- “Virtual Staff Rides” or Capstone Exercises
One on One Coaching
Figure out your next steps with personal, 1-on-1 coaching sessions.
Catalyzer employs a question-based leadership coaching framework, modeled after the seven-question outline offered in the book, The Coaching Habit. We believe that the most effective coaching conversations are guided discussions where the coachee is allowed to figure out what they should be doing for themselves.
Tailored assessments provide insight for personal and team growth.
We believe many organizations are at the point of “assessment fatigue.” At Catalyzer, assessments are an integral element for other programs and coaching and only used where the insights they provide have specific application.
WHY LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT TRAINING?
There is a war for talent raging all over the country and turnover is not only disruptive, it is exceedingly expensive. Smart companies with well-developed, effective leadership are much better postured to mitigate these challenges. It is way more cost-effective to keep your current employees engaged than it is to find, hire, and train new ones.
New Hire Cost
This process is among the very few non-negotiables we have. It is critical to establish a foundational understanding of your organization. With that understanding, we develop world-class programs that are specific to your organization and context.
In the Discovery phase, we work to understand you or your organization by asking questions directly or through survey instruments and then analyze the response. Discovery outcomes provide better organizational insight into conflicts in alignment, organizational structure and culture.
Creating a Plan
Represents Catalyzer’s Discovery analysis and recommendations to include an acknowledgment as to whether we believe we can assist in achieving the organization’s intended program outcomes and our proposal for growth.
To bring tailored, world-class leadership development to every organization in every corner of this country, and to help grow those organizations – one leader at a time.

Recently, Chris John, one of Catalyzer’s original founders and Directors, hiked for 9 days on this panoramic and meditative path of Cotswold Way. He observed, “The present-day leadership lessons exemplified on this journey mirrors life. Not everyone demonstrates a mastery of the journey and that’s where service to others, by way of rendering assistance or encouragement builds capability on the trail and in the workplace.”
Our organization spends lots of time on the road with the organizations we support, and when the pandemic began accelerating last February/March, we were reluctantly forced home. But not for long. Eighty-eight days after suspending travel, we were back at it and have...
