Katie Baird

Hi, I’m Katie, it’s nice to meet you! A little bit about me. I transitioned from climbing the traditional corporate ladder to nurturing a career built upon my passion for human connection and problem-solving. I view each coaching engagement as an opportunity to work with, learn from, and further a client’s potential. Steadfast elements of my coaching brand revolve around attentive listening, powerful questioning, and a healthy dose of humor.

My coaching work draws upon eight years in strategy consulting, and nearly three years of coaching mentorship under the tutelage of two premiere executive coaches with expertise in human behavior, systems change, and energy leadership.

Outside of coaching, I reside in Houston, Texas with my husband, James, and pup, Copley (an ode to our days in Boston and East Coast roots).
