“Kathrin has been a tremendous asset as I’ve developed my leadership skills. She’s a deep and active listener who knows how to ask the right question to target the issue. She offers frameworks and advice to successfully and confidently tackle some of the most difficult leadership situations. She’s empathetic and sees all sides of the leadership experience. I feel lucky to have found her and recommend her without hesitation.”

Elise Roy, Vice President Inclusive Design and Accessibility, Salesforce

Kathrin was my exec coach for 6 months and it was a fantastic experience. She listens thoughtfully, provides fantastic insights and has helped me tremendously. She really works to get to know her clients and then tactfully guides them to see where they can improve on weaknesses and emphasize strengths. She is kind and even when she challenges you it is apparent that her intentions are noble and her compassion evident. I highly recommend her and I hope to work with her again in the future.

Mike Genin, Vice President, Recursion Pharmaceuticals

Kathrin was my professional coach during a six month executive training program. She made a significant impact on my career. She’s an active listener who always gave me her full attention. Her advice was thoughtful and always felt personalized, versus recycled and generic. Kathrin didn’t just dispel advice, but often pushed me to explore my questions and assumptions to arrive at my own conclusion. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Kathrin again, and if you have the opportunity, you should as well.

Working with Kathrin has been one of the best professional experiences I have had throughout my career and by far the best coaching experience. Kathrin has a unique ability to facilitate the understanding between different personalities through teaching language that finds common ground and thought models that identify common goals. I found her compassionate approaches for conflict resolution, strategies for leadership through adversity and approaches to staying true to one‘s beliefs especially impressive. I am looking forward to working with her in the future.

Joachim Ritter, Senior Vice President, Checkerspot

Kathrin is a dynamic speaker, a genuine servant and an experienced coach. I’ve had the privilege of knowing her through a dynamic organization and then was delighted when she agreed to be a guest on my podcast: My audience responded so well to her approach to guiding teams through transition and has invaluable insights about how to steer a very large ship through change and even troubled waters. In the end, her desire to help people truly enjoy what they do is totally evident. Thanks for a great interview, Kathrin!

Priscilla McKinney, CEO, Little Bird Marketing

Working with Kathrin has been a terrific experience. I’ve been impressed by her capacity to listen and push the conversation further and to enable honest and direct conversations. She also has a broad library of tools that were very helpful and she knows when and how to use them in the most efficient way. I would recommend Kathrin to anyone looking for a professional coach and I thank her for her work!

I hired Kathrin as my coach when I was working on my first book. I wanted to change significantly my business model — and downstream, my life — but wasn’t quite sure about next steps. Kathrin helped me think big and go for what I was truly passionate about. If you are looking for someone who can provide clarity by connecting you to your inner wisdom, work with Kathrin. She is supportive, wise, and tremendously fun. She will help you overcome barriers and step fully into your power.

My experience working with Kathrin has been one of the best learning experiences I have had at Google. As my leadership coach at Google she was able to drastically transform my capabilities in a short time frame. The improvements over the course of our engagement were not only noticeable to myself, but also to the senior leaders I work with on a regular basis. I have even been able to help relay the valuable lessons on to my team, which has helped many people benefit rather than just myself.

When I first met Kathrin O’Sullivan, I was struck by her powerful presence. She speaks with a sense of clarity and truth. She listens from an open heart and gentle spirit. She looks at the world from a place of curiosity and sees beyond what most people see. And when it is time to step into action, she moves. As a coach, Kathrin sees her clients in their greatness. Standing by their side, she creates a powerful space that helps them realize their visions and dreams and make the difference they feel called to make. As a leader, Kathrin empowers others to be their best. She inspires and affirms. Kathrin O’Sullivan is a gift.

Kathrin’s presence and ability to tune in and connect allow for deep exploration and meaningful change. Her intuitive approach and skillful means support me in making conscious choices that have led me to take risks, trust myself, and speak my truth with confidence. Kathrin is willing to take risks for her clients. Her bold approach has called me forth in powerful ways. I am so grateful our paths crossed!

Rebecca Johns CPCC, CTPC, Owner, New Directions Professional Coaching

I recommend Kathrin as a consummate coach who models what it means to bring forward the best in oneself. She has an exceptional ability to cross the temporal boundaries of culture, industry-type and socio-economic constraints to meet clients wherever they are on their path forward. Her commitment to making the world better has truly benefitted those we serve at CNPC.

Mary Riley, Founder and Director, Center for Non-Profit Coaching (CNPC)

What I find most beautiful in Kathrin is the ease in which she carries herself. She is incredibly strong and insightful while at the same time holding space for what’s possible. As a coach, she is able to make distinctions that drive to the heart of the matter while maintaining her compassionate connection. She is gentle yet deceivingly powerful at the same time. I’m honored to be part of her coaching community.
