I am hesitant about horn-tooting.
But through the years, I have learned that it increases the comfort level of those on the verge of entering into a contract with me or Better-Leadership. So, here is some reading in that category.
Nice things that people say after business together.

Katie has the ability to arm a group with strategic thinking, skills, and group process to make them productive. Her energy, coupled with her experience, shows through and keeps the interaction dynamic. Katie is a terrific resource when you need to train, develop, or simply stay on track with your organization.

Katie Snapp has a gift for leading the most difficult groups to a common goal, and the most high performing teams to uncommon goals. Her insight to team dynamics and personal style enables Katie to constantly adjust the tempo and tenor of interaction to achieve remarkable and yet predictable results. Watching her work teams with seemingly opposing agenda, is to watch live art performed. She has a pleasant high-energy manor that moves even the most recalcitrant to interact. Katie knows whether a little humor is needed to break the edge, or to press the group forward to that next goal. Working well in groups of all sizes, even when numbered in the hundreds, each member feels as if they have had a personal encounter with Katie. Over the past decade after having asked Katie to work with many of my staffs, I can say they have all benefited by her work.

Katie worked with our “Key Management” staff through the “Five Dysfunctions of a Team” in a two day format. Her expertise and leadership has impacted our team meetings very positively. We now spend more time working on strategic issues as a team. Goals and their attainment are being reached more quickly than in the past. She has moved us further toward being a highly integrated, focused, and efficient team.

Katie Snapp brings to the task of organization development and process improvement the perfect combination of technical mastery and emotional intelligence. Katie uses the latest techniques to identify, map and improve processes – and uses these skills in a way that puts everyone in the room at ease and fully engages them in creative problem-solving and collaborative decision making. Participants in her sessions leave amazed at how much insight they gained, how much visible and actionable progress they made, and how fast the day went – because they were having such a good time. If there’s anybody better at this work in the Southwestern US – I haven’t yet met that person.

From assessment to program delivery to follow-up, Katie is top-notch. She thoroughly and accurately assesses the situation and then clearly defines the necessary action. When she is training or facilitating, she quickly engages the audience. Katie uses humor, energy and innovative activities to involve all participants, even the reluctant ones. She strives for measurable outcomes and complete client satisfaction. It is a pleasure to work with Katie. I wish everyone could be so positive and upbeat.

I have had the fortunate opportunity to have Ms. Snapp as my consultant for the first ever meeting of my Executive Leadership Team which is composed of 16 senior managers who are located in various remote parts of the country. This was a team who had historically operated independently for many years prior. Our operational focus since that time has been night-and-day different. Unlike many other types of training this group had received before, this is the only one that has worked. I directly attribute this to the skills of Ms. Snapp and her vast experience in group management.
When it came time for my managers to take their own teams through sessions, every one of them without exception, requested Ms. Snapp by name to design and attend. This fact alone is a significant testimonial to her effectiveness. Her style, knowledge and ability to tailor her delivery to the needs of the group were truly impressive. I would highly recommend her to any group, anytime, anywhere!

Over the past sixteen years Katie Snapp has consistently received outstanding customer ratings for her workshop delivery and team facilitation. Katie obviously has exceptional technical skills but recently her experience, composure, and insight in dealing successfully with a client that is simultaneously experiencing downsizing, reorganization, and relocation has made it near impossible to meet all the “by name” requests for Katie as their preferred facilitator. I would highly recommend Katie to any client.
