About me

Katherine starks

executive coach

I’m Katherine Starks, Executive Coach, Team Coach, Leadership Expert.

I help people in leadership positions to reach their full potential and lead a fulfilling and happy life.

I have worked in Financial Services for 35 years, first in sales and for the last 15 years in senior positions where I have been responsible for leading large teams and achieving growth, customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction in Germany and Europe.

My management style is different. The focus is on my team members as individuals and I know each one well. I encourage them to discover their goals and strengths, and together we work to achieve what they want in life. With my experience as a leader and my team coaching skills, I bring people together to form highly productive, resilient and successful teams.

I have been an executive coach since 2022, helping my clients develop the skills needed to build high-performing teams to achieve top results.

I live with my family in Germany in the Vordertaunus, north of Frankfurt and am bilingual (English and German).
