  • "Kathryn’s StrengthsFinder session was highly valued by Professional Women’s Group clients at Dress for Success Brisbane.  Kathryn’s appreciation of the challenges faced by individuals returning to the workforce clearly showed in her sensitive approach to helping group members adjusting to new workplaces.  Harnessing and developing strengths is a theme we keep returning to, reflecting on what we learned from Kathryn’s insights.  This activity was targeted perfectly for our group and clients already apply Kathryn’s advice in their career development and goal setting."

  • "On multiple occasions I have had the pleasure of working with Growing Talent, in running engaging personal development sessions for our high performing bankers in Corporate and Commercial Banking across Queensland and the Northern Territory. Kathryn was able to uniquely tailor insightful full day workshops that actively challenged how participants approached areas such as career development, career planning and visionary thinking. Kathryn is a highly energetic and passionate facilitator who has consistently provided programs to meet our needs. Her strategic thinking and enthusiasm towards personal career development and coaching has helped in driving the individual development planning process."

  • "It has been extremely inspiring to join a work team that desire your job skills and work experience, but equally value your personal talents. As an experienced support officer, in other organisations it was common to find underutilised staff becoming job tired, purely because their passions and talents were overlooked. In my new team the StrengthsFinder language is commonly used, we regularly refer to our team summary StrengthsFinder chart; it’s a motivating environment and there is a true sense of team strength."

  • "The StrengthsFinder training was excellent! It gave important insights into our team, how we work together, and how we may work best together in the future. It was a great team building exercise and we had lots of fun. On a personal level I learnt significant information about myself that I have utilised and will continue to benefit from in my future. I found Kathryn to be a dynamic, experienced and knowledgeable trainer. She was a fantastic fit for this valuable training."

  • "Undertaking the StrengthFinder training has provided our Team with the tools to maximise what we can achieve together. Kathryn has a thorough understanding of how applying StrengthsFinder can make a difference to an individual and the Team they work with. She is focused on supporting each recipient to maximise their learning and as a result ensure StrengthsFinder becomes the most effective training session you will ever attend."

  • "As Manager of a team with an abundance of skills, experience and talent I wanted a simple, logical method to identify these strengths and make them a collective asset.  Having worked overseas I have experienced several trait analysis philosophies, Kathryn at Growing Talent has offered analysis and implementation support above my expectations.  She easily planted the concept into my team and now we are all reaping the rewards."

    Sidney Pauga State-wide Programs Manager, UnitingCare Community
  • "We were lucky enough to have Kathryn join us for our very first Business Chicks conference, 'Movers and Breakers' held in the magical Uluru. She not only owned the stage with her presence and passion, but delivered an insightful, thought-provoking keynote on playing to your strengths in business which was extremely well received by our delegates."
