Catherine Burdett has 25+ years of business experience including senior roles in sales and marketing, sales leadership and coaching across several industries in the corporate and government sectors. She is an accomplished facilitator and executive coach highly knowledgeable in the fields of emotional intelligence, resilience and communication. A self-employed entrepreneur who has travelled the globe extensively for more than a decade; her teaching, facilitating and coaching professionals has helped dozens reach the highest levels of business performance. Catherine knows that optimal performance in life and work is a choice. A choice based on our ability to be consciously aware of our emotional state and how that state impacts our thought processes, chosen actions and ensuing impact. She knows that the intelligent use of emotions is a game changer opening the pathway for the pursuit of meaning and purpose, for relationships of mutual respect and trust, for compassionate care of self and others, for clarity and capability in problem solving, for ease in decision making, for optimism and ultimately happiness and well-being.
Certified in the use of related assessments, tools + techniques, Catherine has supported individual and organizational clients to transform their lives and workplaces by reconnecting them to themselves, challenging them on patterns of thought and beliefs and reminding them that everything is possible when the external noise and distraction takes a back seat to our inherent wisdom. “Challenging clients to slow down is counter intuitive in a society that increasingly demands more of us. And yet, getting quiet is what is required in order to receive the click of clarity, informing how to best move forward with any relationship, any task, any problem, any thing we seek answers to. We always know and rarely allow ourselves the opportunity to hear that knowing. Harnessing the dynamic heart + head brain combination is a powerhouse catalyst yielding a renewed sense of optimism, enthusiasm and belief in our capacity to live and work in alignment with personal core values, strengths and the worthiness that is our birthright.
Catherine is a Past Director with the International Coach Federation, Calgary Charter Chapter, a PCC level coach with thousands of hours of experience, coaching and facilitating and a HeartMath Master Trainer.
