Relatable Leader

This podcast is produced to support the success of supervisors and managers. This content is also useful for people who strive to promote to a leadership position, because the time to start behaving like a leader is BEFORE you fill a leadership position. Listen to determine your path from job, to career, to passion - and evolve your leadership skill set by applying the knowledge and tools provided here. 

This is your behind the scenes access to coaching that supports your leadership. Thousands of participants have already benefited from Catherine Goggia's unique delivery of practical information and humorous style. This is not fancy trainer talk: this is down-to-earth outreach based on real-life work place experiences. 

Catherine has facilitated more than 5,000 presentations. She holds two international training certifications: one from Development Dimensions International and the other from Achieve Global. She earned a Job Performance Coach certification from the Fowler Wainwright Institute. 

Catherine taught college level Business Communication and Employee Readiness courses for 15 years. She has been a professional trainer for more than 25 years. Employees and students tell us her courses changed their lives for the better, and her evaluations consistently rate her as an engaged and motivational speaker.
