If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more…you are a leader.

Hi, I'm Kate!

Thank you for being here! I am a leadership mindset mentor passionate about helping women fulfil our potential. 


Bringing your whole self to work has become a corporate mantra but too many women stay small and dim to fit in. It is finally time to step out of the shadows and shine as your real, authentic self. 


I’ll show you how to speak your truth, stop hiding your emotions for fear of making others feel uncomfortable, stop making yourself small for fear of showing others up and stop worrying about being ‘too much’. Because the world needs you to show up and shine just as you are.

What does it mean to have a leadership mindset?

If you Google leadership, there are a gazillion definitions but in simple terms I see it as a set of skills and choices we make to uplift ourselves, and sometimes others, to achieve a vision. Mindset is your frame of mind or attitude. Therefore, to have a leadership mindset is to approach life consciously with positive intent that helps you to fulfil your aspirations – whatever they be. 

Whether you are just starting out in your career, or you have 30 years under your belt, I am here to share a whole host of tips and techniques that you can put into practice to help you succeed – whatever your definition of success is. It isn’t about climbing the ladder to become the next CEO, although go for it if that is what you want to do. It’s about getting the most out of your life, enjoying the experiences you have along the way and realising that you are enough just the way you are.
