Catalyzer Approach and Services


Catalyzer can help turn things around

Is your organization struggling to provide a positive work environment and keep employee retention high, all the while trying to stay competitive? Companies are more diverse today than in the past. Traits like empowerment, employee engagement and employee satisfaction lead to higher productivity and profit. Managing and leading are a great deal more complex today. In the past, employees were expected to keep quiet and simply do their job. If we honor and empower the individuals, we can make a more effective organization. 

We seek to decrease turnover, and the costs associated with it, find opportunities for growth and create a leadership culture that transforms your team. Through our process, we will uncover hidden traits inside individuals and leverage them to create better leaders. This allows organizations to be in more nimble and adapt to changes more rapidly in an increasingly complex business world. It is imperative to have leaders in organization thinking about these changes in a unified manner.


People often ask us about our leadership philosophy. It’s not ours that matters, but your organization’s, which we can help uncover through our assessment process. We work really hard to exceed your expectations. Whatever your previous leadership development experience was like, we guarantee that this will be different.


Catalyzer does not believe in weekend retreats or periodic “cheerleading” sessions where leadership is concerned. Behaviors are difficult, at best, to modify, and so the challenges your organizations face will not be resolved in a day. We commit to working with you over a period of at least 12 months. Your organization will mature as we work together, so you should expect us to outline programmatic detail for about 6-9 months into the future.

An introductory conversation about the challenges facing executive leaders in America and proposed solutions for moving forward. 

Topics include:

  • Leadership Challenges in American Business
  • Workforce Engagement—Its Causes, Costs, and Cures
  • An Approach to Leadership—The Catalyzer Way


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.


Understanding You

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. 


We Know You’re Wondering

Our program costs are from one-half to one-third the expense when compared to other programs. Few will tailor something for you and most only offer experiences that last from 3-5 days. We never want the finances to be the barrier that prevents you from engaging us for the leadership development experiences you need. Even if you think your budget may be insufficient, we hope you’ll give us a call and let us think through options with you.


I liken a lot of the things we’ve done in the past to a can of soup. What you get is what you get. With Catalyzer, you have options, you can add whatever ‘ingredients’ you like to make it your own. Needless to say, we jumped at the chance to work with them.
