About this Case Study

This case study offers a radically different perspective to a common problem.

Katherine shares practical advice from over 5 years of experiments and experiences coaching and training executives and leads in tech in very tough scenarios. She'll show a different way of leading yourself, teams and divisions out of hellish circumstances in order to get back onto the pathway of effectiveness.

Katherine will highlight an alternative technique and framework(s) from eastern philosophical thinking that she has found successful and will tell stories from practical, real and very recent case studies from the last 2 years (eg at large organisations such as The Economist and Springer Nature).

She currently enjoys being an active participant in a community of lean and agile practitioners in Europe who explore and challenge the status quo through experimenting and collaborating.
