'My passion in life is enabling people – professionally and personally to unlock their power and potential. To help them live fully as the leaders and individuals they were born to be. I gently but stubbornly unlock the truth; drilling down beyond the superficial and limiting perceptions that encumber progress and achievement to get to the deep truth where, once identified, real, long- lasting change for the individual, team and business, starts to occur. My combination of support and challenge provides a safe but catalytic environment for clients to feel comfortable with their vulnerabilities yet inspired and motivated to achieve their personal and professional dreams.'
Kate’s coaching and facilitation style is highly supportive, collaborative and warm yet challenging, sharp and provocative. Known for calling people to action and account, Kate demands an honesty and awareness that awakens and ignites peoples’ belief in themselves and their abilities – the result: inspired, energised and high-performing individuals. Kate started her career in marketing and recruitment, where she gained extensive commercial experience working for British Airways and marketing recruitment specialists, Ball and Hoolahan. She then spent 15 years working as a coach for both corporate clients and individuals. For the last 7 years she has lived overseas, in Sweden, Poland and Paris where she has gained a cultural perspective that has added another dimension to her coaching. Kate has 3 children and is an instructor of Ashtanga yoga and can use the combination of yoga and coaching to bring about extraordinary results for her clients.
Kate is passionate about realising human potential. She specialises in group facilitation and regularly delivers programmes such as coaching skills for managers and leaders, full potential leadership programmes and team building activities. Her expertise in conflict resolution and raising self-awareness combine to tackle and challenge people at the deepest level, inspiring and motivating leaders and groups to work differently, and more effectively in order to achieve their goals. Latterly, through examining her own strength, authenticity and passions she has moved more towards individual coaching as this is where she feels she is at her most powerful. Kate’s USP is undoubtedly her ability to draw upon her very broad range of skills, work & life experience to design unique programmes to suit individual needs.
“Kate Woodward is uniquely gifted, highly evolved and makes the coaching process fun, yet works at a deep and fast level. Her intuitive abilities and her trust & confidence in using them in the sessions adds a dimension that is invaluable”
