Hi, I’m Katie Anderson.

It’s time to bring the idea of people and purpose back to business.

If you’re a leader, who wants a proven way to unlock the potential of your people, think about this: Are you asking the right questions?

That’s what my process is all about: creating a culture of learning, so your whole team is empowered to lead, and you can focus on things like quality, service and growth (and maybe even having some time for yourself).

Hi, I’m Katie Anderson.

It’s time to bring the idea of people and purpose back to business.

“I feel Katie has this ability to introduce concepts, but in a kind of grenade way. She throws the grenade in and then people sit back, and as the explosion goes off, people are cogitating about what this means for them. I love that. That’s the type of learning I love… I couldn’t sit there and just be lectured at for hours and hours.”

Dr. Mark Bloomfield,
Director of Commercial Transformation

That testimonial from Mark made my heart soar, because, to be honest, I couldn’t stand and just lecture for hours and hours. It’s not my style. 

I’m here to help inspire, guide, and give you the simple concepts and structures to help you learn. 

Yes, I’m a high achiever and an academic at heart, but I’ve also waitressed at Planet Hollywood when I moved to London after graduating from Stanford University. I’ve travelled the globe to seek out new experiences and I’ve lived in many different countries — in the East and West.

I own nearly a dozen chickens.

I believe in embracing failure and reflection as a source of learning.

My favorite color is purple.

I’m a mom of two school-aged boys.

I sign nearly all of my emails with “Have a great day” because “Today is a Great Day”  was my dad’s saying until he died.

And I have a deep affinity for Japan and its rich culture, including the daruma doll.

And I have a deep affinity for the daruma doll.

Daruma doll (達磨 daruma):

Daruma dolls are weighted at the bottom so that when they get knocked over, they right themselves to their standing position. 

They represent perseverance and tenacity.

They encompass the Japanese proverb, “Fall down seven times, get up eight.”

And their eyes are powerful, too. Fill in your Daruma’s left eye when you set your mind upon a goal or intention, and keep the Daruma nearby as a visual reminder of your goal. Fill in the right eye when you accomplish your goal.

It’s a beautifully simple way to stay focused on what is most important to you.

These paper-mache figures called Daruma dolls have become one of my personal trademarks since I first learned of them while living in Japan in 2015.

Why am I telling you all of this?

Because above being a leadership coach, I’m human. 

And so are you.

That’s our starting point. 

Being human. Being curious. Genuinely caring.

That’s what organizations are often missing. Their humanity. And a focus on everyone learning.

I want to help you rediscover this, and grow your people into the most empowered, intentional, positive problem-solving high-performing leaders and team members they can be.

My journey into my business

July 23, 2013 was the day I became an entrepreneur and began on a path toward greater impact than I ever could have before.

Making the choice to leave the career path I’d been on was a challenge.

Yet,  I needed to take the leap into the unknown and chart a new course and establish Katie Anderson Consulting .

It’s not always been an easy journey — and I’ve had to live the Japanese proverb “Fall down seven times, get up eight” — but it’s been an incredibly rewarding one

My business has flourished and I’ve had the privilege of impacting and inspiring tens of thousands of people globally to lead with intention & become better learners and leaders.

I work with amazing people from big-name multinational corporations to small-family owned companies, across various industries, all around the world.

I’ve keynoted the main stage of events across the US & Europe — and been invited to speak with leadership teams around the globe to inspire & provide tangible skills.

I partner with organizations and their leaders to help them create intentional people-centered learning cultures.

I can’t wait to work with you!

My journey into consultancy

July 23, 2013 was the day I became an entrepreneur & began on a path toward greater impact than I ever could have before.

Making the choice to leave the career path I’d been on – one of regular employment and progression – was a challenge.

Yet, on this day I decided I needed to take the leap — and before my last day of employment, Katie Anderson Consulting had several work contracts under negotiation.

Now, 8 years later, my business has flourished & I have had the privilege of impacting and inspiring tens of thousands of people globally to lead with intention & become better learners and leaders.
