To write a great book on Leadership Development, you need years of knowledge and expertise in this area – Kat Howell has this.  Kat has over 20 years of experience in a range of leadership and senior management roles with leading organisations such as Melbourne Business School and Leadership Victoria.  Her last role as a Principal Consultant was with Steople (previously PeopleScape) where she extended her knowledge and expertise, particularly in leadership coaching at senior executive levels across a broad range of industries.  These experiences are in addition to the formal qualifications Kat has as a psychologist, culminating in a Master of Counselling degree.  This means that Kat will be able to draw upon the best evidence-based research into this area as well as her significant practical and real-life experiences to share some deep insights with the audience.  Kat is well qualified to write and share her extensive knowledge and expertise in the area of Leadership Development.

Katalin Howell has been a great leadership coach. Through working with Katalin, I have learnt that most leadership and management issues can be described and have been experienced by managers in the past. There are ways of working with different types of people that can be really effective and this is easier if they have been considered in advance. There are also many skills that can be taught. Katalin was the first person to make me understand that my current style of working was very effective and I shouldn’t try to change and be a different person whilst leading teams, instead I should work on extensions of my leadership skills.
