Kate is a skilled Facilitator, Mediator and Mentor specialising in Team and Community Up-skilling and Cohesion. Her work addresses ‘harvesting’ from and responding to the riches and common challenges we face as people working and/or living together. Having a passion for working with groups, Kate understands the significant contribution of the development and maintenance of the essential critical structures + practises that ensure health + wellbeing of communities, families, couples and groups.
These include developing Conflict Response Systems, Decision Making Processes, Feedback Systems, Vision, Values, Goals Identity, Governance, Individual and Group Wellbeing. In this time of great change and uncertainty, Kate is increasingly inspired, nourished and sustained about facilitating and participating in the Work that Reconnects. The results of all of this are often astounding and beyond what we thought possible.
“My mission includes seeing ourselves as already whole, working to reveal and increase agency, choice and self responsibility with our unhelpful training in patriarchal and colonial conditioning.”
