Hi, I'm Cathy Norris, founder of Sensational Leadership.
Hi, I'm Cathy Norris, Founder of Sensational Leadership.
I’m driven by my desire to help people feel connected to their workplace, to each other and to their company.
My work with organizational leaders and teams draws upon my experience working within diverse industries for over 20 years.
When complexity and conflicting demands progressed during my corporate career (along with frustration, overwhelm, and even loneliness), I discovered I had forgotten to connect to my team members in a human -- not just a transactional -- way. Finally, a couple "aha" moments woke me up to the power of meaningful connections that I had been missing.

I work with organizations such as:
small and midsize companies experiencing growth that don’t have in-house leadership development programs
branch offices and facilities located away from the corporate headquarters
leaders of teams within large organizations
Often executives and team leaders who I work with:
come from a technical background and have new positions that require “people skills” in which they simply haven’t been trained
were superstar individual contributors, but are now challenged in a position that requires their ability to connect with, inspire and manage their team to do the things they used to do themselves
