Newsksy Consulting Blog


So, you're looking to enhance your leadership skills, build a happy and engaged team that's committed to success, or get your business running like a well-oiled machine. Well, it's fair to say that you might need a helping hand along the way.

It's perfectly normal for business owners, leaders or managers to feel out of their depth as their businesses grow or their careers progress. However, the leaders who really shine are the ones who know when it's time to ask for help. Now, you might not be ready for help from a business coach, and that's OK. The purpose of my NewSky Consulting Blog, or what I refer to as 'Kat's Chats', is to give you some of my coaching expertise, experience and advice all wrapped up in easy-to-digest posts. Here, you'll find helpful tips and actions that you can take to help you achieve your business or leadership goals.

I hope you enjoy! When you're ready for that next step, book a free Clarity Session, and we'll discuss how I can support your journey. I'd love to hear from you.
