Need to be coached?  I can support your thinking during a 1-on-1 coaching session, or a group coaching session with your team.  I am a Training Associate in Cognitive CoachingSM, part of Thinking Collaborative.  I provide the Foundation Seminar of Cognitive CoachingSM for groups interested in developing their own coaching identity.

Home: Services


If you host a Foundation Seminar of Cognitive CoachingSM, all who participate in the eight day training will learn about the power of coaching.  Applying concepts of trust and choosing our words carefully help us personally and professionally. As coaching has gained popularity, I've learned that not all coaching is equal. I'm proud to assure you that the model of coaching I use and promote shows ultimate respect to the person being coached and has powerful results.

Experienced. Certified. Supportive.


"I always knew that if I was attending a "Kathy Gross" training, I was going to enjoy my learning and grow as a teacher and as a person.  I could always feel it in the room that you not only cared deeply about what you were teaching - and believed in what you were doing - but that we mattered to you." 

Carrie Aho, Teacher at Field Elementary, Springfield, MO
