Fans of Career Balance
When looking to find Coaching support for the mammoth task of bringing together and aligning over 100 different companies to complete over $2 billion worth of work in a tight time frame of 5 years, I immediately thought to ring Kathryn. Not only did I know that she would be an invaluable resource, I also could rely on her strong network to nominate other coaches we could potentially use

Its cool to have a career coach!
A video testimonial from one of my clients.


I have worked with Kathryn on a number of occasions since 2008. She has an incredible talent for what she does, and her coaching programmes really are effective and deliver amazing results.

I have always found Kathryn to be highly professional, supportive and creative. In addition to her impressive qualifications she has a wealth of experience to draw upon. This all comes with a sense of fun and laughter.

Kathryn contributed significantly to helping me define my career goals, aspirations and tactical plan for how I could achieve those goals. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kathryn to anyone looking for professional career advice and/ or services.

Kathryn is the consummate professional, and delivers with warmth and humour to achieve exceptional results.

I am a client of careerbalance and have been working on an Executive Coaching programme with Kathryn Jackson for approximately 2 years. Throughout all my coaching sessions, Kathryn has been an inspirational listener and someone who can be relied upon to ask those deeply probing questions to challenge my thinking and ensure I have explored all options. Kathryn has rare talent and one that Kiwi’s or their organisations (big or small) - could get enormous value from.
- Dave - CFO

Kathryn is an experienced consultant who has demonstrated her strong skills & capability in guiding individuals through difficult times as a result of company restructuring. Kathryn did such a great job in 2009 that Red Bus is utilising her services again for its significant business restructure in 2010.

Our manager learned how to focus on the issue rather than the person, with the result that performance has improved for both.

I have worked with Kathryn for the last 2 years, her skills as an Executive coach have supported many of our high-potential talent to achieve development goals and key business results. Kathryn has an excellent style and can relate to all types of clients, it is because of this I also engaged Kathryn to facilitate a workshop for our in-house business coaches to improve their skills.

I was lucky enough to work with Kathryn for 18 months as she worked with our team on peak performance. Through individual coaching and support to our HR team and senior management Kathryn was able to influence positive change and development for the project team. Kathryn worked seamlessly with our HR team adding value and input to initiatives being implemented from an organisation perspective and was a great asset to the team

Management Training

Kathryn trained our staff in how to have coaching conversations at work. It was truly excellent and has made a hugely positive contribution to a positive performance review process. She is an excellent trainer and writer, and is particularly skilled at reading the needs of individuals and the group then pitching her challenges at the right level. She has also worked one to one with many of our staff - they highly recommend her as a coach.
