It’s easy to believe that to be a great leader or coach you have to be the expert
in the room with all the answers.

But, what if that belief is not true?

Not only is it not true, it’s also not helpful, because ultimately it leads to you putting out all the fires and completing urgent tasks instead of using your problem-solving skills and your time to address the most impactful challenges to develop people.


I’m Katie Anderson, internationally recognized leadership and learning coach, consultant, and professional speaker, and this is what I believe:

Intentional leadership and coaching is one of the most powerful ways to nurture transformation and discovery in your people, as they learn, grow, develop and succeed, while your business achieves significant results.

“I had the privilege of being coached by Katie Anderson and it was such a learning experience for me and finally helped in understanding how to be a better person and eventually a better leader.”

Take a look at how a period of rapid growth in the family business inspired a small leadership team to seek out the new skills they needed…by learning and improving together (with a little help from me!) Learn more about Eddie & his family.

You and your organization want (and deserve) more…

More engagement of your people
More problems solved
More satisfied customers
More revenue generated

But you’re too busy juggling competing priorities to be able to do it all

What if the secret to success didn’t come from doing more, but rather from learning more and creating more value by engaging everyone in problem-solving at all levels?

What if the secret to achieving more came from adjusting how you lead your team to learn and how you lead yourself?

So, what is the Leading to Learn Accelerator?

If you’re new to my work...there are two important things you need to know in order to understand what this Accelerator is:

1. I’ve had the privilege to coach teams and individuals around the world to become more effective leaders; and

2. I’ve written a #1 International Bestseller, Learning to Lead, Leading to Learn.

In Learning to Lead, Leading to Learn, Toyota leader Isao Yoshino and I discuss what it means to learn, to lead, and to care. Created through years of collaboration, this book offers our shared reflections on leadership and learning, providing readers an inspirational experience that defies generational and cultural divides.

The Accelerator is structured around the book as a shared learning experience. 

You don’t need to have previously read Learning to Lead, Leading to Learn to take part in the Accelerator — If you haven’t yet read the book, this will be the perfect opportunity to discover your lessons from the stories within.

If you have read the book, I’m so excited to support you here to deepen your experience and lessons learned as you reflect with a new perspective.

“Through intention setting and reflection, I believe I have made progress on not always jumping straight to providing an answer or solving a problem. I recognize when I am doing this and step back and ask the team more questions to help them get a deeper understanding of the issue and what needs to be done. I still have a long road ahead, but I am definitely more aware when this is happening and can catch myself in time to save the learning opportunity.”

“I got that ‘aha’ moment so early on in the Leading to Learn Accelerator program. I remember just sitting there…you know when you stop and pause, the penny really has dropped. The ability to marry purpose and intention is something so fundamental for a leader.”

You’re committed to being the leader you know you can be, who’s innovative and effective, achieving greater success, as you advance collective learning with your team and organization.

But…if you’re like a lot of people I’ve worked with, you’re probably also…

  • Not entirely sure how to align your habits with your purpose
  • Struggling to get the results you want as a leader or coach, while helping your people grow, despite your best efforts
  • Frazzled, because you’re juggling all the problems, instead of leading or coaching a team to solve them, while you focus on growth, value, and productivity (i.e. the BIGGER PICTURE)

I know what that’s like.

Through my own journey as a people-centered leader, I’ve discovered the power of living and leading with intention. 

Earlier in my career, I realized that many of my habits were not aligned with my purpose:

To help people learn, grow, and contribute to the organization's success.

With the support of a coach, I began to focus on improving myself to align my actions with my purpose, honing my skills as an intentional leader. 

I spent a few years really focusing on intention as a coach and as a leader.

Then I had the opportunity to move to Japan with my family. My time there enriched my knowledge and experience even more. It was there that I met Isao Yoshino, a leader at Toyota for over 40 years.

Together, Mr Yoshino and I spent years in purposeful reflection and writing, resulting in my international bestselling book Learning to Lead, Leading to Learn: Lessons from Toyota Leader Isao Yoshino on a Lifetime of Continuous Learning. 

Exploring what it means to learn, to lead, and to care, it’s a book for leaders of all levels, in any industry, anywhere in the world, who strive to create a culture of continuous learning and to lead with intention — by helping others discover their best selves, while also developing themselves.

I’ve helped thousands of individuals and their organizations to reach their full potential and be inspired to live and lead with intention, so they can help others do the same.

“This program gave me deeper meaning to learn my purpose in my personal and professional life as well as a human being on Earth, learning tools to reflect more effectively and developing a habit of writing them amplify my commitment to improving myself. I now feel empowered to lead with intention, and confident in my ability to create patterns of behavior to support my team and our organization.”

Accelerator Program Structure

Your journey in the Accelerator will follow five two-week modules. Each includes targeted reading, a specific exercise in your workbook, lessons led by Katie for you to watch at your own pace, and facilitated group coaching sessions.

The focused topics for each module are:


Deepen your understanding of your purpose, both the known and discovered dimensions of your life. Set your intention for your leadership learning journey and the tangible outcomes you want to achieve. Establish a daily habit of reflection, which will be the foundation for your 10-weeks leadership acceleration.


Explore the Leading to Learn Framework and identify the actions you can take as a leader to create a people-centered learning culture. Learn how to navigate Leadership Continuums of knowing when to ask and when to tell, how to challenge and nurture, and how to develop people while achieving business results.


Clarify your top priority and your responsibility as a leader. Define your top organizational goal and the process of how you will personally support your team to achieve it. Discuss what it takes to change organizational culture.


Define the principles and practices that define who you are as a leader and what you value most. Document your 10-point Leadership Credo to share with your team. Discuss the power of mindset.


Develop your personal improvement plan and define your next steps, situating you for ongoing success as you continue to accelerate as an intentional leader. Discuss the importance of learning from failure, the power of perseverance, and the value of reflection being the beginning, not the end, of learning.

"Katie helps you see yourself, and know where to grow. She knows how to challenge you to move beyond where you are. She doesn't set your path but she guides you toward identifying and moving forward on your path, and she makes you feel special because her path crosses yours. She doesn't pull you or shove you, but she empowers you to WANT to move. She doesn't offer a quick fix or a guaranteed route to success: she teaches you simple, logical tools that each of us can practice one day at a time to live the life we want to live, no matter what that looks like for any of us. Her stories, wisdom, insight, and expertise are applicable to anyone who believes, "Stagnation isn't for me." Katie has been a transformative power in my life, and working with her will yield WAY more than 60 days of value."

In each of the sessions, there are many action items and moments of enlightenment for your own learning, and Katie asks very good questions and helps you to dive deeper into the questions that you have in your own mind. I now have a leadership credo, which is a baseline for my own leadership.”
