LEAD WITH CONFIDENCE:
Building the Inner Strength to Weather Any Storm

In this powerful program, I use my signature mind-body-spirit approach to teach the most effective ways to boost confidence. You’ll learn research-backed strategies for supercharging self-confidence, allowing you to improve performance and achieve greater professional success while also experiencing more personal fulfillment. 

  • Discover and implement the 5 Ps of confidence
  • Uncover mental and emotional patterns that sabotage confidence
  • Learn techniques to overcome a scarcity mindset and improve decision-making
  • Develop your optimism and resilience, which translates into achieving valued goals


BOOST YOUR MENTAL METABOLISM:
Converting Thought Patterns into Bursts of Energy that Lead to Breakthrough Results

Physical metabolism is how our bodies convert what we eat and drink into energy. Our mental metabolism is how we convert thought patterns into energy. If our thoughts are constantly negative and we are blindly leading with bad habits, we’re squandering our precious energy. 

On the other hand, if we recognize our strengths, lead with those, and work to build good habits and positive mindsets, we boost our positive energy. That’s why it’s imperative we examine our thought habits and mental metabolism every day. How can we improve our mental metabolism? The key is identifying, leveraging, and building on our strengths.

In this session you’ll learn how to:

  • Plan and set yourself up for for success every day
  • Adapt to challenges 
  • Look beyond yourself for resilience and fulfillment
  • Align your goals with your strengths, values, and priorities
  • Give up habitual negative thinking or self-talk
  • Stay committed to new and improved perspectives, even when it’s tempting to fall back into old thought patterns and behaviors

EMPOWERED COMMUNICATION:
Say What You Want to Get What You Want

Communication is critical to success, and we’re most effective when we know how to get our needs met through cooperation and the willing contributions of others. Empowered communication shows us how to use language to exchange information, resolve differences, and meet our own needs while honoring and respecting our own values and those of our team members. The outcome is an environment of mutual respect, greater cooperation, and enhanced productivity.

In this program, you’ll learn the keys to empowered communication and actionable steps that can be implemented immediately to:

  • Strengthen self-awareness
  • Accelerate productivity and performance
  • Create and maintain winning habits
  • Inspire collaboration over competition 
  • Maximize positive outcomes and desired results

YOUR CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON:
Achieve Peak Team Performance through
Mental and Spiritual Mastery

A championship season is created minute by minute, day by day. As my national team swim coach, Larry Lyons, would always say, “If you take care of the little things, the big things will take care of themselves.” To create a championship season, I share my unique methodology to empower you and your team to break through the less tangible roadblocks undermining our goals -- excess mental and emotional baggage, deep-seated insecurity, self-judgment, and overwhelming stress and anxiety.

Attendees with walk away with:

  • Neuroscience-based practices that bolster resilience and inner strength

As a sportscaster, I’m going to put this in baseball terms: Kate hit a grand slam! Her speech affected everyone in the room. She’s able to look at herself, give a positive message, and have people feed off of that message. I think she’s a powerful speaker who is going to touch lives wherever she goes because she makes people look at themselves.
