Advice for Catalysts: Don’t ask permission, but don’t go rogue

With a groundswell of support for your vision—and proof that it works—you’ll be able to execute change across your company.


Catalyst Constellations

The team at Catalyst Constellations has studied, taught, coached, (and led organizations as!) Catalysts. Through research, we have come to understand a different breed of “super change agents” – Catalysts. We literally wrote The Catalyst Book - "Move Fast. Break Shit. Burn Out. The Catalyst's Guide to Working Well." Working with senior executives, we identify internal Catalysts and align on the skills they bring to support various innovation opportunities. We deliver the resources and insights necessary for organizations to empower this high-potential talent pool. We provide the training, support, and community they need to supercharge their – and the organization’s – transformational initiatives.
