Sucessful Organizations

Catherine helps organizations to thrive by developing a roadmap for realizing their vision and assisting them in their organization change initiatives. Conducting an organizational diagnosis at the appropriate level is fundamental to any meaningful and effective organizational change. When an intervention is set in place, it is also vital to develop metrics to measure its impact, and, if necessary, to correct for unintended consequences and make adjustments. Catherine also advises organizations on how to streamline and integrate processes to create efficiencies and synergies, resulting in cost reduction.


Catherine helps organizations with talent management, including key position staffing and succession planning, through skill and knowledge needs/gap analyses, developmental and selection assessments, training, and coaching. She assesses and develops their talent, including high potentials, by means of 360-degree assessments, feedback and personal development plans. The key is to maximize person-job and person-environment fit, that is, the placement of the “right person in the right job and environment” to realize potential and maximize performance.


Working as a faculty in graduate programs of organizational psychology, Catherine  taught more than ten organizational development courses and lead more than 50 pro-bono projects on organizational change for small companies.
