Catalyst 1 Global is committed to

enhancing performance and increasing profitability through people development

We help companies
achieve exceptional results by developing leaders and teams at all levels

We help individuals develop the confidence and skills necessary to lead

What makes a great leader? It’s a critical question for every organization. There are multiple examples of high performers who are promoted into management roles but can’t make the transition to becoming effective leaders. That’s because exceptional leadership requires a brand new set of skills.

Catalyst 1 Global helps individuals to understand what it takes to be a great leader, then we work to develop the competencies they need to build and coach high performing teams – the ones that have an exponential impact on the success of the organization.

We bridge the gap between strategy development and strategy execution

Typically, executive development programs focus on the skills and tools necessary for those who set strategy. This is critically important for organizations, but it’s not enough.

By connecting people to strategy with systems that foster engagement and involvement, Catalyst 1 Global works with organizations to develop scalable, results-focused models that provide guidance to new team members and structure for existing staff. We’ll ensure that everyone understands how their day to day efforts align with the overall strategy of the organization.

We create the clarity that leads to an evolution in company culture

Culture can be defined as shared values, stories, and language. It’s a simple definition, but the pressure to achieve results, the increasing reliance on technology, and the energy required to survive at the ‘speed of life’ have complicated and confused our understanding of culture.

As experts in the fields of emotional intelligence, collaborative team building, and innovation/change management, the Catalyst 1 Global team helps organizations identify and reinforce shared values. Then we work to create a common language that promotes greater collaboration and more effective communication.
