A Conversation with Katherine Hosie, Trium Coach & Coach Supervisor

1. What is it you most enjoy about coaching senior executives?

I found over time that the smarter people are, the better they are to coach. These are people who are already successful, who know how to get results in their lives, learn well, and take action. The whole process is just that much more enjoyable. I also find that the more I respect someone, the franker I become. I like being frank with my clients. It’s energizing for me. So, for me, the best way to work with smart people is to work with successful executives.

 

2. Who or what do you consider to be the biggest influences on your approach to coaching?

Who: I’m a big fan of Carl Rogers. His humanity changed what I thought was really important in coaching. I believe – and hope – that his influence has made me a better person.

What: My Masters degree in evidence-based Coaching Psychology was extraordinary in giving me depth of knowledge. It was a huge amount of work and basically stole my life for the duration, but was immensely rewarding. It has made me a more critical thinker, as so much of what we learned about what is actually effective flies in the face of popular psychology. It has also given me high standards of what I expect from myself and our Trium coaches as well.

 

3. Why do you love being a part of Trium?

I love being a part of Trium because it’s such a unique organization. We care about our clients, and I also feel that we care about each other. However, the primary reason I love being a part of Trium is because I learn so much from my colleagues and our clients. We have a lot of smart clients. Again, this lights me up.

 

4. If you could only ask one question of a new coaching client, what would it be and why?

How can I help you the most? 

Our work together is a collaboration. I want each person to feel like I’m working with them in a way that supports them. I’ve had many people try to support me in ways I don’t want or need over the years.

 

5. Is there a team, person, or organization who you would love to coach, and why?

I would love to coach Andrew Blum (Trium’s CEO). That would be a challenge for me, and I think a lot of fun. It would also give Andrew the opportunity to experience directly how I work, and experience our own coaching offering firsthand! I know Jonathan has worked with Andrew in the past, and that’s why he’s here – I’d love to have the opportunity to work more closely with Andrew and deeply understand what makes him tick. Of course, I need to be careful what I wish for…(smiles).

 

6. What is a hobby or interest you have that others might find surprising? 

I love gardening. I’m always doing something with plants. They give me hope and have taught me patience. Cicero said, “If you have a library, and you have a garden, you will want for nothing.” I’m also a huge lover of books, so the library is a big part of my life, too.

 

7.  What is your unique “superpower”?

My unique “superpower” is my non-judgment. People tell me everything and I have never been shocked. I want clients to be able to tell me anything, as that’s the start of all healing and change; the knowledge that we have shared ourself with someone and they love and accept us anyway. This cultivates self-acceptance. Being able to provide this to clients is the reason why I love working with men in midlife. They have a lot of things they need to share. It’s healing, and the most rewarding part of my work.
