Katherine L. Poehnert, M.Ed.Psych.,PCCKatherine L. Poehnert
Kathy has over 25 years of experience working in the educational, business and human potential fields, and is currently a senior lead trainer for a national coach training Institute. She is dedicated to helping women (and men!) maximize the power of their feminine energy. Kathy was an external Executive coach for Deloitte, a consulting trainer for Rutgers University, and has provided extensive trainings for a large non-profit in New York City. Kathy’s clients include, Liz Claiborne, Donna Karan, Primerica Financial Services, and Deloitte. Additionally, she was a corporate presenter for Ceridian Performance Partners; serving many fortune 500 companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, Merck, and Chase Manhattan, and has coached women in management positions at Borders Books, Liz Claiborne, Imperial Sugar, Liz Claiborne and PSEG.

Katherine is a certified consultant with Genos® Emotional Intelligence; and an Energy Leadership Index Practitioner. Her approach to her work is based on the belief that women bring a unique quality to their personal and professional lives that is underutilized and undervalued….the energy of the feminine. It is this energy that underlies the principles of intuition, collaboration, receptivity and connection-critical skills in building and maintaining a professional presence, and an important part of emotional intelligence.

Although Kathy has built a successful career, she spent many years feeling uncomfortably “edgy”. not always fitting in with the standard operating procedure of the masculine-dominated business world. Through the experience of raising a child, developing 2 businesses, and life itself, she has come to recognize the power of feminine principles, in balance with the masculine, as a catalyst for success, and devotes her energies to working with women leaders to help them recognize and maximize this energy for personal and professional evolution.

Kathy’s professional memberships have included the International Coach Federation, New Jersey Professional Coaches Association, the EQ alliance, and the International Speakers Network. She is a dynamic presenter, an insightful coach and dedicated to re-vitalizing her clients and the world with the energy of feminine principles.
