Leadership isn’t about title or authority…

It’s about making everyone around you better.




The Catalyst Effect Model

A Catalyst is someone who thinks differently. In addition to doing their jobs well, they look at the bigger picture. In sports, they think like a  coach. In business , they think like an executive. In a music ensemble, they focus on how the entire group sounds and how each player contributes to delighting the audience. They think like a conductor. 

No matter what realm they are in, Catalysts think beyond their immediate role to ensure what they do is aligned with the overall strategy. What becomes possible with an entire team of Catalysts motivated to making an impact?

A Research-Based Approach

The world is changing and it’s changing fast. Leadership at all levels must keep pace.

The Catalyst Effect model and competencies are based on in-depth grounded theory-based research via interviews with top performers in three major sectors:  business, sports and the arts.

We found that being a catalytic leader or catalytic teammate has little to do with official authority and everything to do with behaviors that inspire and enrich the performance of the entire group.

But being a Catalyst isn’t born. It’s learned. Anyone can learn these skills. Anyone can become a Catalyst.
