Kathleen "Kathy" Trotter is founder and principal of Krysalis Consulting. Her expertise is developed from more than 30 years of working in and for nonprofits across the United States and internationally, as well as her successful experience in two small businesses.
Kathy is a skilled analyst, facilitator and coach. She is adept at getting to the critical issues that matter, at engaging all stakeholders (owners, staff and volunteers) to solicit their perceptions and get their buy-in, and at creating actionable strategies that lead to real change.
Learning from her father who was an entrepreneurial farmer, Kathy's natural perspective is to look for the logical, workable solution, not necessarily the conventional one. She appreciates -- and seeks out -- wisdom that applies classic principles in contemporary ways to current issues.
She values the differences in organizations and businesses as well as their commonalities. Her own broad experience in program and executive roles, as founder of a firm successfully passed to a new owner, as director of a family farm business, and as a nonprofit board member enables her to be a quick learner in diverse situations.
Her understanding of the differences in organizations
is the basis for defining each project by the needs and
budget of the client.
The firm collaborates and contracts with other consultants to address large scale and specialized projects.
Great leaders and great organizations "become" in the same way. They develop the capacity to deliver life-changing impact and sustainable value from the inside, OUT.
It's true transformation........the silent metamorphosis within the chrysalis before the butterfly graces the world with its beauty.
But unlike a butterfly that is directed by its DNA, people and organizations must choose to be transformed through intentional and disciplined learning toward specific goals.
This is OUR commitment.....to facilitate processes that enable individuals and organizations to develop the particular internal attributes that will achieve YOUR purpose and passion -- so you can change the world!
Become.............from inside OUT!
