Meet Cathy Burke, Executive Coach and Leadership Expert, Speaker, and Author of ‘Lead In: Mindsets to Lead, Live and Work Differently’
Cathy was the CEO of The Hunger Project Australia, and then Global Vice President, working to end hunger across South Asia and Africa for 20 years. She helps organisations and people develop the mindsets, leadership, and skills needed to address 21st Century challenges.
She was an integral member of a visionary team who developed leadership at scale in villages all over the world. Through her work, millions of the world’s poorest people stepped into their leadership and were able to feed themselves and their families.
Even in the most difficult conditions, time, and again people without anything were able to tap into the power of their mindset to achieve remarkable outcomes in their communities.
Cathy designs and leads transformational programs for village women redefining what it means to be a leader, to global executives grappling with change.
She believes that the potential for leadership is available to everyone and that it’s never been more important to activate this in organisations and communities worldwide. According to her, “In turbulent, unpredictable times, having someone who can unlock the capacity and leadership of your people is key to your organisation thriving and staying strong”.
Cathy now works with organisations and leaders to develop the mindsets, authenticity, and capabilities needed to achieve a better future. She had done it with eBay in Silicon Valley, Amazon across Europe and Japan, with big and small organisations in Australia, and with individual people who want to empower their leadership ability to impact, influence, and make a difference.
She received the Australian Davos leadership award and is an AFR Top 100 Women of Influence award winner.
Cathy recently released a book called “Lead In: Mindsets to Lead, Live, and Work Differently”.
With the complexity and unrelenting change only accelerating, it’s clear the old ways, and who’s of leading are not sufficient. Good people are losing hope and opting out.
Yet there is a way to energize leadership that is inclusive, impactful, and inspiring, and mindsets hold the key.
Lead In is your practical and accessible guide to activating the mindsets you need to step into a new way of leading. It is for smart, ambitious, heart-centered people who want to unleash their power to make a difference – in their lives, their organisations, and their world.
Lead In: Mindsets to Lead, Live, and Work Differently will help you:
- Identify and move past old beliefs holding you back.
- Make the contribution you know you want to make.
- Be centered and in action even when times are tough.
- Lessen the grip of the “not enough” mindset.
- Empower others to Lead In as well.
What I love most about Cathy is how deeply she connects with her audience. She is like a mind reader and comes to them with the perfect balance of kindness and courage to help her audience rise and achieve their personal potential. She articulates their feelings and fears and inspires you to step up and lead in…now!
