Who We Are

Kate Tojeiro

Having built up a string of prestigious FTSE 100 and Fortune 100 clients over the last 15 years, Kate Tojeiro has worked as an executive coach and facilitator with the boards, senior leaders and teams of some of the world’s largest organisations and also some of the most cutting edge, organically-grown start ups.

During that time she has formed a unique and compelling reputation for developing some of the UK’s most illustrious leaders and transforming organisations; bringing tangible business value through building communication, changing perception, encouraging leadership and driving confidence.

Be it launching a new product, creating a new division, unblocking delivery channels, evolving a corporate culture, guiding an acquisition or navigating the pressures accompanied with a first board position, Kate has become synonymous with balancing hard-nosed business decisions with the core principles of self belief and clarity of thought.

A regular fixture on BBC radio and a respected voice across the media, Kate works with leaders, teams and the next generation of rising stars in harnessing talent and building credibility; an intuitive process that lets people and businesses ‘be themselves’ by giving them the framework and the foundation to encourage authenticity and foster the innate confidence needed to simply get ‘out there’ and get things done.

Effective leaders establish values, model behaviour, encourage innovation, nurture and support, reward, make tough decisions and give feedback. Great leaders will set the vision and promote self-leadership in individuals, teams and the wider organisation. It’s a virtuous circle that can only drive stakeholder value upwards and offer unparalleled rewards.

With an ethos built around self awareness, resilience, the power of perception and the need to create vehicles for people and organisations to see things differently, Kate founded the progressive leadership consultancy firm Xfusion, to help her clients enable, encourage and engage.

From one on one coaching sessions and invaluable time spent with leaders in action, through to facilitating board meetings, designing bespoke workshops and working with teams throughout the organisation, there simply cannot be a single, standard approach. The fundamentals remain the same but the delivery is always very different.

After all, the shaping of effective leadership is not a science.

It’s an art.
