Well-being solutions for today's challenging demands

In today’s world, stress continues to increase at a rapid pace and most of us are struggling to keep up with life’s changing demands. As a result, 89% of Americans have experienced burnout, exhaustion and have become disengaged in the past year according to an article on CNBC.com. When leaders, staff or teams are stressed, it negatively impacts their well-being and thereby, their productivity, performance and overall business results decrease.

Energy Catalyst Group provides leadership development, career coaching, consulting and team training. We also provide self-care tools to help you thrive at work and in life.

This is what we do, and is why after 20+ years, we are still producing positive results for our satisfied clients including SonyPlayStation, HP, Livara, Microsoft, Snap Inc., HTC, Genentech, & Stanford University.
