When you think about catalysts you probably think chemistry – colored water in beakers, Bunsen burners, white lab jackets and explosions. You probably don't think about a former camp counselor and college jock turned influencer with a passion for helping people – seeing them grow and succeed.
But then again, you haven't met Betsy Nichols.
Betsy is a member of our client development team – working with clients to help them design and implement the best solutions that help make their workplace the best place to be. And she is a catalyst. While not the chemical kind – she has been a business catalyst in every one of her business endeavors – taking the lead and inspiring and driving change in people and organizations for years. In addition to reward and recognition program design, Betsy uses the work she put into her Master's degree to develop curriculum to train individuals and teams for lasting change.
An avid communicator, Betsy speaks on a regular basis for audiences ranging from a few, to a few thousand. It is one of her favorite ways to lead and inspire change. If you ask her what her life motto is, she will say - Inspiring change makers to make a difference.
With all this energy Betsy has to get outside on a regular basis. She's an avid runner, and takes any chance she can get to hike, bike, and be on the water, especially when boats are involved. But her favorite day will almost always end around a table with family and friends telling stories, celebrating ways they were inspired and changed and dreaming of great things to do together in the future.
We hope you enjoy Betsy's commentary here on the blog and if you want to spend some time sitting around the table talking engagement, change, success and generally having a great time shoot her a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "I'd Like to Chat With Betsy" in the subject line. She'll be happy to connect and get the conversation started.
