I met Dr K in 2014 when I interviewed for a Marketing Manager position with her listed tech company, My Fiziq (now AHI).
What Dr Katherine didn’t know about me in that interview was that I had just experienced a soul destroying career burnout.
Despite her offering me my dream job at the time, I knew in my heart that I had run out of puff. I graciously declined the position.
That’s the trouble with burnout. It puts ‘what’s possible’ in the toilet and you are eventually forced to choose self care over career. We should not let it get so far as to have this internal, psychological ultimatum.
This is why I am so passionate today about what Dr K teaches. She helps people operate at their best (and yes, her recipe includes adequate rest and healthy boundaries).
Following the 2014 interview, Katherine and I did not see each other again until 2019, when we happened to sit together in a seminar.
We hit it off once again – resonating over a shared vision and mission to help others.
One year later, we evolved the Dr Katherine brand to offer “mindset training” for individuals and corporate teams.
In a short time, we’ve worked with some great brands, including Wrays IP Lawyers, Commonwealth Bank, Mettle.org, AHI, Tailored Resources, Griffin Property Group, Modern People and Hesperia.
We have several new, brand partnerships in the wings and the feedback on her programs has been nothing short of exciting!
For me, working with Dr Katherine on delivering mindset, resilience and stress management programs is a cause close to my heart. Her wisdom, knowledge, humour and extreme levels of empathy means she is the thought leader who was missing from my career back in 2014.
I’m so glad she’s here for all of us today. She can help each of us live a more fulfilled life – not just at work, but in our personal lives also.
