About Adair Cates
The mantra that drives me and keeps me centered is the famous Gandhi quote: ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.'
Not only does it drive me personally, but it fuels my professional quest to help you and/or your team or community BE the greatest version of yourselves, so you can make a lasting impact in the world. I do this by facilitating connective conversations and asking empowering questions that help you …
…Focus on your strengths
...Identify a transcendent
…Expand your thinking
…Break through emotional blocks and
…Establish powerful new routines
I help you and your team or community through this transformation by serving as your heartfelt guide. I say heartfelt because, like you, I’m a work in progress myself. Always looking to grow and expanding my capacity to learn, relate and accelerate connection! Maybe that’s why my clients say I bring out the best in them and their teams.
I’m committed to creating business cultures that amp up creativity, develop interpersonal connectivity, and acknowledge a collective genius that leads to greater cooperation and productivity.
“I facilitate conversations to ignite creativity, leverage strengths, harness collective wisdom, accelerate outcomes and productivity and create sustainable, scalable change at a speed that surprises most.”
