Kate Gardner

COACH FOR EXTRAORDINARY LEADERS

Vision Labs


Vision Labs are coaching workshops for groups of 12 to 200 people. They use the same tools of radical reflection & practical action that Kate has developed as a coach and consultant. The Labs can be customized for different sized groups, different demographics and different time frames – from a one-hour launch pad to a two-day intensive.

  • Enable attendees to quickly and easily develop a powerful motivating vision for themselves by speaking from a future self and bringing that future self into the present. (This technique gets results from those who "don’t know," as well as for those who do.)

  • Identify some of the biggest stumbling blocks that could keep them from creating that future.

  • Develop immediate actions they can start taking now to overcome them.


Kate Gardner showcased her superior executive coaching skills as well as her ability to capture an audience during a radical reflection workshop at NYU Stern’s 27th Stern Women in Business conference. The attendees raved about her session - the closing event of a robust conference. They noted her keen ability to motivate audience members to clarify their development goals and identify tangible steps to achieve those objectives. Kate honed in on participants' comments, and many decided to attend the subsequent networking happy hour only to continue the conversation with her. Kate's workshop helped the participants - both current MBA students and working alumni - unlock their full potential. I hope to work with her again in the future.
