Kathy is a Leadership Coach at MOR Associates with a passion for leadership development. Kathy believes that every person has leadership potential and the greatest hindrance is not seeing yourself as a leader. Many people perceive leaders as extraordinary, special people. Often the difference between a non-leader and a leader is that the leader has stepped forward. If you have some knowledge/experience to contribute and you have a vision for where things should be going, don’t be afraid to step up to the leadership role. If you have the right stuff people will follow you willingly.
Prior to joining MOR Associates Kathy served in a variety of management and leadership roles at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay for more than three decades. The last fifteen years she was the Associate Provost for Information Services and Chief Information Officer with responsibilities for instructional technology, library services, enterprise systems, networking and telecommunications, help desk services, and web services. As a campus CIO she served on the University of Wisconsin System CIO Council and led numerous state-wide technology projects, including: online learning management system, library management system, and student information system. She served ten years on the WiscNet Board, the state-wide educational network, including terms as Vice-President, President and Treasurer. She also served ten years on the Governor’s Council on Library and Network Development and led a state-wide “Visioning Summit on the Future of Libraries,” which resulted in several successful state budget initiatives. Her volunteer work includes serving as President of the Brown County Library Board, co-chairing a state legislative coalition, and teaching effective advocacy for library trustees throughout Wisconsin.
Kathy has been a student of Leadership her entire career. She is passionate about sharing what she has learned and encouraging leadership development at all levels. When coaching for leadership she will challenge your thinking, pull you out of your comfort zone, and push you to seize your leadership opportunities.
