A strong and effective leader is one who understands themselves. Self-knowledge cannot be learned solely from a book or a course. It is a personal journey.

– Catherine Hayes


My story…

Before my coaching practice, I spent more than twenty years as a public health dentist, researcher and academician. I’ve held numerous leadership positions including as an endowed professor and department chair.

After my own experiences dealing with a variety of leadership styles, I became interested in learning more about what makes an effective and inspiring leader. On this path, I uncovered a great deal about myself and what was involved to be an effective and inspiring leader. I decided to take what I learned to help others understand themselves more fully.

I work with individuals who want to live authentic and fulfilling lives and who are committed to understanding themselves, their behaviors and reactions. I believe that everyone has inherent leadership potential whether they are leaders in organizations, within their families or in their relationships. One of the most important attributes of a successful leader is self-awareness.

How I can help you…

Using my experience with the Enneagram, Diamond Approach and Coaching, I help people understand their personality patterns and reactions. By guiding them to understand these patterns I help people improve their personal and professional relationships and develop communication skills to motivate and inspire.

I do this through one on one and group coaching, as well as professional leadership development. I offer coaching, consulting and facilitation of  workshops and team meetings using my background and dual-certification from the Coach Training Institute and the Enneagram Institute and as a credentialed coach with the International Coach Federation.

I’m an Authorized and Certified Enneagram Teacher with the Enneagram Institute where I studied with Don Riso and Russ Hudson and I’m an Accredited Professional of the International Enneagram Association.

I offer both individual and team coaching and consultations with a focus on individual and organizational leadership.
