Chief Coaching Officer
Tim started his academic career focusing on economics; this led to a life of looking at human interactions through the lens of maximizing utility. He moved into a career in training and development, which grew into executive roles within retail services and the franchise industry. Along that journey, no matter what industry he was in, coaching was the key to business success.
Former Franchise Executive who has built real estate, operations, marketing, and finance teams for an organization with 25 + million in systemwide sales. He has held positions ranging from Director to Executive Vice President. Tim has hands-on P&L, Budgeting, Recruiting, Operations, and Brand Leadership experience.
Leadership is always evolving. Not year by year but day by day. With that in mind, continuing education is the cornerstone of Coach-Up Worldwide. Below are institutions Tim has received degrees, certificates, or professional development training from.
Life led to a passion project, Coach-Up Worldwide, where he invented the “Coach-Up” now formally called the Coach Up Challenge Track form used today by many companies to replace “Written Warnings” or “Write-Ups”. The idea was to create a simple tool entry-level supervisors, and managers could use to coach their team to overcome a challenge. This meant leaning away from a progressive discipline mindset and taking a more developmental approach. From this idea, Tim Katsch led a gradual morphing into a Coaching and Recruiting firm.
“My leadership style is customer-focused servant leader who uses coaching, emotional intelligence, and industry best practices to foster deep and meaningful relationships. I believe one of the most important leadership characteristics is the ability to be agile and continually adapt both in your strategic plan and in the way you interact with each person you lead. Everyone is unique, and that uniqueness lays the key to innovation, performance, and workplace happiness.
I believe as Daniel Pink stated in his book Drive, autonomy, mastery, and purpose are the most important motivating factors, and I add best contributors to workplace and career enjoyment. In the knowledge worker industry micro-managing, not investing in your team, and being solely focused on profits have gone the way of the dinosaurs. Leaders recognize the people that are with them can achieve goals independent of “that’s the way it’s always been” or “here is how I want you to do it”.
Leaders invest their thoughts, their time, and their money in up-skilling, coaching, and development. Leaders believe in something that truly gets them out of bed in the morning, they unite teams with individual and common purposes. Leadership is nuanced and ever-changing, but it’s not a unicorn skillset. If we put ourselves in team members’ shoes, if we actively listen and question with curiosity; everyone can lead.”
