What if there was a better way to empower you and your team to achieve business goals more effortlessly?

Now There Is.

Catalyst offers well-planned, progressive coaching-based programs for people in working in food that have been built by those who have walked in those shoes. Through our leadership development offerings, your team will integrate technical expertise into your business operations. We have practical, ready-to-use-now tools and approaches that are grounded in coaching. We believe coaching is the tool for helping people tap into their inner wisdom, power, and gifts so they can step into their best selves.

We walk alongside you, helping you answer the question “how do we get there?” by not only equipping you and your leaders but every single person in your company because everyone has a role to play in success.  Here's why development is the key to attracting, retaining, and unleashing your people's talents:

Why Choose Catalyst's Programs over other Leadership Training Programs?


It's simple – Jill & Tia are industry veterans who have walked the walk and have been in your shoes. They know, and you know, training isn’t enough to change behaviors, especially to cultivate the impactful leaders you and your team are meant to be. While leading teams in food, Jill & Tia both worked with coaches and saw incredible personal outcomes from coaching that transformed how they led teams. Those outcomes and more are what others report from coaching, too. That's when they knew coaching was vital to transformational leadership.

That’s why Jill and Tia became certified coaches. With their technical expertise, leadership experience, and coaching perspective, they create relatable, progressive, reflective leadership programs to meet the unique demands of the food and beverage industry and, more specifically, technical leaders in the space. Catalyst's Leadership Approach isn't just about theories; it's a practical, hands-on guide to transforming leadership styles, making you and your team the driving force behind your organization's success.
