"During the past four years I have watched Kathie Nitz flourish and grow as a leader as she ascended from Treasurer, President-Elect, and then, through an outstanding year as President of the Connecticut Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF-CT).
Kathie's year as President was an exemplar of leadership for the 21st Century as she empowered the chapter to produce outcomes for an organization that are, in fact, the three vital outcomes great coaches enable their individuals clients to achieve: 1). Acquisition of the skills, knowledge, and behaviors necessary for long-term excellent performance; 2). The competence, willingness and commitment for self-assessment and self-correction when things are not going the way desired or intended; and 3). An infectious commitment to continuous self-improvement and effectiveness that propels the individual toward the transformation they ultimately seek.
Watching Kathie, as President, empower the ICF-CT officers, board of directors, committee chairs, and chapter of nearly 130 individuals voluntarily assume the desire to achieve these three outcomes individually and collectively is to witness a stunning and bravura leadership performance.
Watching as the other officers and members of the board of directors continually evoke new enthusiasm as they assumed new responsibilities in the process makes it easy for me to say that Kathie's leadership is the quintessential demonstration of Lao-tzu's leadership admonition: "When the best leader's work is done the people say: We did it ourselves." ~ Jerry Sinnamon, Past President ICF-CT Chapter
"Kathie's presentation skills are superb. She engages her audience and encourages them to ask questions. By sharing her personal story, audiences can see how using her method of communicating with challenged seniors can provide positive results." ~ Joyce Kuhn, Assistant Vice President, Fairfield County Bank
"One of the deepest needs we have as individuals is to feel understood - and I believe this feeling gets stronger as we get older. Sharing and recording life stories is a powerful way to build understanding, and Caring Cards® can make this easy and enjoyable. Kudos to Kathie Nitz for developing this wonderful resource." ~ David Troxel, Author, "A Dignified Life: The Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer's Care"
