Hi! I’m Kata.
I’m a collaboration strategist.

I support high-growth digital businesses in systemically upgrading how their people collaborate for more ownership and trust, and less tension and chaos.

However, the systems in which we organize ourselves haven’t kept up. Despite your best intentions of building a highly functional culture and radically collaborative teams, it’s normal to accidentally fall back into sneaky silo thinking, hidden blame-games, and hierarchical decision-making.

I help teams to become more productive by leading courageous conversations about how to work together, turning friction and tensions into the very building blocks of your growth engine.

You can create a positive, go-getter work environment by having difficult conversations. It’s not an oxymoron. I promise.

My clients build futures. They are innovators, not only in what they do, but in how they do it. Together, we make the work culture of tomorrow real. 

How? By creating a bridge between your envisioned culture and strategy and your everyday business reality.

We all know the world of work is changing at a rapid pace. 

Services

The business world is brimming with amazing ideas about the future of work. What we need more of are companies who can take us there by actually makeing thesethose ideas real.

My services help you turndo that by turning inspiring but hard-to-graspvague concepts into practical, strategic solutions for building a cutting-edge organizational culture.

A culture that drives innovation, enables problem solving and effective decision making and makes you stand out as an employer too. to building the organizational culture you want to see.

Collaboration Workshops

My workshops help teams zoom out of the everyday hustle and take an honest look at how they work. Based on the well-researched methodology of Radical Collaboration, each workshop is carefully designed to match the current development stage and challenges of your team. 

Meaningful and constructive facilitated conversations really do build teams.
They serve as a springboard to increase productivity by establishing a common understanding of the team culture, untangling conflicts, or improving interpersonal skills.

People identify the ineffective behaviors standing in the way of their collaboration and learn how to communicate more effectively: how to solve problems, negotiate, or give constructive feedback in a way that builds relationships instead of damaging them.

Unlike traditional skills development or team-building programs, working with a collaboration strategist helps you analyze the interpersonal dynamics in your team. These insights also give you a long-term action plan for further developing the team and its members.

Strategic partnerships

Growing fast comes with growing pains at every stage of your growth journey. Whether it's establishing or reinforcing your company's culture, going through change management due to an acquisition, or rethinking team structures, a constant stream of new challenges is part of the game.

As a strategic partner, I join forces with HR and management to design interventions and change processes, give advice on how to communicate internally, and establish feedback loops regarding important decisions so that you can take changes in stride. 

The best approach to any organizational challenge is to apply a human-centered design approach: unearth issues and involve people in addressing them. This empowering process engages people, drives the best results, and allows you to keep growing without losing control of the narrative.

Speaking

I take ‘soft’ and buzzwordy topics like collaborative cultures, self-management, or psychological safety, and speak to them in a way that’s hands-on and relatable to your everyday business reality. You'll likely get the feeling that the scenarios I share were taken from your last meeting.

The real stories and easy-to-understand frameworks give your teams a reality check about their current state of collaboration. They'll be able to identify what's missing in order for them to be radically collaborative and use the practical steps from the talk to make changes.

If you want people to take more ownership of the organizational culture you are co-creating together, an energizing and actionable speech will pack a punch in a short amount of time.

Co-creating human-centered cultures, one interaction at a time

Elevating culture and collaboration to a strategic level means much more than organizing a few workshops or taking a few pieces of advice.

If we start collaborating, we truly become one team with a common goal. We combine your internal understanding with my external viewpoint and expertise to design an intervention your team or company currently needs.

From discovering recurring patterns to reframing them into custom-built interventions, my work process is designed to keep your business and your people in the center.
