Katrina coaches global leaders in multinationals such as Nestle and the United Nations. She has a TV show and two podcasts: Excellent Executive Coaching and Global Nomadic Leadership. She's an author/speaker/blogger on leadership for a prestigious magazine which will, at least for now, go unnamed. Katrina, take a minute, fill in the gaps from that intro, give a little glimpse of your personal life.
Katrina Burrus: Oh, well, I'm married, with two kids.
Katrina Burrus: It's called Bilan. It's really a magazine that is printed and online, and addressed to leaders in Switzerland. Of course, the French speaking part because it's written in French.
John Lee Dumas: What I wanna do right now, Katrina, before we dive into your journey as an entrepreneur - which, by the way, Fire Nation, is a fascinating one - give us what your area of expertise is.
Katrina Burrus: My expertise is, of course, I coach leaders and managers. I speak on my expertise around the world and I'm creating webinars.
John Lee Dumas: Katrina, what do you do today to make sure that that doesn't happen to you?
Katrina Burrus: Well, I have 30 clients that I'm targeting.
Katrina, that's my big takeaway from what you're saying, that you made the mistake, back in the day, of not doing that so now you're very purposefully and intentionally doing that every single day now, on some level. What do you want to make sure our listeners get from your story?
Katrina Burrus: I'll tell you a little story how I got on a huge mandate, as well.
John Lee Dumas: I think you summed that up wonderfully, Katrina.
Katrina, let's shift to one of your greatest AH-HA moments that you've had to date. Of course, what we just talked about was an amazing AH-HA moment you've had, but you've had a lot of those. Tell us a story of a time that you just had this wonderful idea that you executed on, and take us there.
Katrina Burrus: I have a TV show and I interview very powerful people.
John Lee Dumas: Katrina, let's talk about today.
Katrina Burrus: Being coaching leaders for the last 20 years - wow, 20 years, it doesn't make me younger, does it?
I can honestly say I wake up every morning when I'm going to interviews with people like yourself, Katrina, and I'm excited.
Now, Katrina, when we first jumped on, we had a little chat and you said to make sure that I told my parents I said "Hi". Can you tell that story? What's the Art and Celina Dumas story that's brought us together?
Katrina Burrus: Oh, the paradise cruise!
Katrina Burrus: That was so exciting and I had the pleasure of meeting your parents and talking a long time with your father.
Now, we are going to be taking a great opportunity to crush the lightening round in just a minute here, Katrina. First, we're gonna take a second to thank our sponsors.
Katrina, are you prepared for the lightening rounds?
Katrina Burrus: Yes!
Katrina Burrus: Because I worked for a bank, a Swiss bank, and the amount of politics in Swiss - in a big corporation, not just banks, a big corporation - and the gender discrimination at the time, I thought I could do more.
Katrina Burrus: I think it's from my mother.
Katrina Burrus: She allowed me to go to university. She was not allowed to go to university and her brothers went to MIT and Yale. She made me think that I could do anything if I put my mind do it. I was dyslexic, so I didn't read until I was 16. Today, you know, I've got three Masters and a PhD. That's the influence that she's had on me. She was my blessing.
Katrina Burrus: It's the Freedom Journal!
Katrina Burrus: I really love this Freedom Journal.
Now, Katrina, share an internet resource, like Evernote, with Fire Nation.
Katrina Burrus: I would say Grammarly.
Katrina Burrus: John Kotter, it's his book on leading change.
John Lee Dumas: Katrina, let's end today on fire with a parting piece of guidance, the best way that we can connect with you, and then we'll say goodbye.
Katrina Burrus: You can connect with me on
Katrina Burrus: Remember that if you want to be a thought leader, don't just participate in a conversation, drive it. Create content constantly.
Head over to, just type Katrina - that's Katrina with a "K" - in the search bar. Her shownotes piece will pop up with everything we've been talking about today. These are the best shownotes in the biz, time stamps, links galore. Of course, head directly t, get over there Fire Nation, check out what Katrina has going on.
