Katie Snapp

During her first career as an engineer at Honeywell, Katie Snapp was selected to participate in their corporate change and trained nationally in leadership and teambuilding. Larry Bossidy was leading Honeywell (Allied-Signal at that time) , and had a close relationship with GE's Jack Welch. They were the early adopters of Lean and Quality. Katie was soon recruited as a consultant at The Cumberland Group, a game-changer in the quality revolution, and worked with clients such as: Bausch & Lomb, Northrop Grumman, the US Navy, and US State Department. Her front row seat was hands-on experience to the US quality revolution and built the foundation of her consulting career. Her consulting specialized in leadership, team-building, and change management for individuals and organizations seeking to be more self-aware and effective. In 2009, Katie published the first of two books, specializing in leadership for women. Having worked as a rocket scientist in a male-dominated culture led her to the realization that great value often gets buried because of a belief systems, feeling outnumbered, and lack of positive female role models. Both books specialize in giving women insights for centering their natural authenticity and feeling more empowered. She now speaks internationally to give women the encouragement and techniques they need to achieve as leaders.
