Do You Have the Interpersonal Skills You Need to Lead Through Complex Challenges?


Learn to collaborate with yourself.


I teach leaders to create conscious, constructive plans for personal performance by training the body to interplay constructively with the mind. We are always whole and my work is based in mindfulness and inclusion of your whole self — the kinetic expression of skill, emotions and desire — so you can direct your attention, confidently respond to shifting conditions, and lead in 3D.

People seek me out particularly when they want a reliable plan for managing themselves during…

  • overwhelm and mental chatter

  • fast-paced attention switching

  • pitching and presentations

  • difficult conversations

  • high-stakes meetings

  • negotiations

  • important decisions

  • co-founder discussions

  • the pain and discomfort of stress

Walking Leadership Coaching

The signature work of WalkingKata is Walking Executive Coaching. This is leadership in motion — talking through the challenges of leadership, founding, personal and professional growth while moving can change your perspective and awaken deep answers.

Performance Training

The ability to fully execute a plan is core to success. From communication in a high stress meeting to telling a compelling story during an investor pitch there are body cues and performance plans you can develop that train your attention and help you accomplish what you desire.



The first step in developing situational awareness and surfacing unconscious bias is developing a relationship with yourself. Leadership is a full body sport and this work can help you count on and listen to your innate wisdom.


Katie is an acute listener - even in a casual environment. Her work with founders is substantive and effective in surfacing their unspoken or unconsciousness assumptions and then helping them design experiments to test, measure and iterate next steps that will advance their work. Her commitment to business is rooted in activating people and their potential with kindness, compassion and with just enough candor.

Katie is a great executive coach, always asking insightful questions that get to the core of what it means to be a good founder while being an authentic, whole person along the way. What are the barriers keeping you from achieving your goals? Are you moving away from something, rather than moving toward the important thing? She’s excellent at reframing problems to get to what’s relevant and meaningful, and has a knack for keeping you honest with yourself and playing to your strengths.

[Katie] was one of the highlights of our program. The tools she provided to our teams were invaluable and delivered clear, immediate value.

WalkingKata with Katie to talk about my business, my hopes and dreams and future plans has been such a blessing. I know I can trust her, she listens and her coaching is spot on. She takes from her own experience of being an entrepreneur, her knowledge of the corporate world and her passion for my overall health and wellbeing. I am grateful!

WalkingKata with Katie Chase has been instrumental in the expansion of Founders LIVE, specifically the attention to strategic thinking and problem solving towards my personal and professional goals. The outdoor/movement aspect is especially effective, providing comfortable space for the two of us to openly discuss topics that would be more difficult in seated environments. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for just the right nudge.
