What our clients say about us


Exceptionally talented

Kate is exceptionally talented in her field and would be an asset to any organization fortunate enough to have her join their team. She is people savvy and a great communicator. Kate is innovative and an effective leader who is able to share a vision and win the respect and buy-in of others.
I recommend Kate without reservation.

Robert Carruth - CEO

Compassionate, astute, committed

Kate is a compassionate, astute and committed coach and colleague. She brings a tremendous amount of HR experience to her work and offers a perfect balance between support and challenge when discussing career experiences, goals and action plans. Kate is very skilled at staying objective and on point in meetings and sessions, but also knows just when to insert empathy at key moments. Kate is a gem and I would (and have!) highly recommend her services to anyone seeking an organizational partnership or executive coaching.

Kate Slattery - Healthcare Executive

Practical, Evidence-Based

Pam's presentation was very good, data rich, and quite practical with several evidence-based suggestions for things we could each do to improve burnout. She also presented categories of things institutions can do to help alleviate this, too, and my physician recruitment and retention specialist is building a retention program based off these suggestions. I definitely would feel comfortable recommending Pam to other organizations who are dealing with over work and burnout.

Nich Cossey - Physician Director

Offers Real Solutions

Pamela Coburn-Litvak has both great expertise and an ability to help others create change. I recently attended her presentation on Burnout and the Great Resignation. Her research on that important topic is thorough and deep. She understands the dynamics in society and in the workplace that have led us to this crisis. More importantly, she offers real solutions to managers and leaders who have the courage and will to tackle the problem and to develop better workplaces. I strongly recommend Pam to both inspire you and help you move to action.

Debra Hunter - Former CEO/COO

Skills in Leadership and Management

Kate is a dedicated professional who I have worked with for several years. Her skills in leadership and management are of the caliber that is often sought after. Kate’s interpersonal skills add to her ability to manage people and gain the respect from those who have worked with her in any capacity. It has been a pleasure working with her.

Joseph Russo - L&D Executive

Fantastic Workshop

Kate facilitated a workshop that I attended, and she did a fantastic job. The participants of the class were at first reluctant to open and share experiences and thoughts. Through her thoughtful questions and by creating the right mood and tone to the class Kate was able to get the participants engaged and actively involved. She was enjoyable and effective.

Anne Elliot - Sr. Leader Digital Experience

Balcony and Ground-Level

Kate is one of those few souls who can get up on the balcony and be strategic -- and then quickly implement ground level applications that truly work. Whether its one-on-one coaching or inspiring others from the front of the room, Kate is a credible and knowledgeable leader who has special insight into the challenges of building high performing work cultures. She also has a wonderful feel for balancing training and education strategies with more consultative interventions in organizational development. Simply said, Kate is great!

Mike Morrison PhD

Deep background

Pam draws from a deep background of stress research to create engaging and informative workshops for leaders. Our organization appreciated her presentation on compassion fatigue so much that we asked for an encore presentation at the annual conference. Pam works extensively with her clients to customize every workshop or presentation to fit their needs.

Lois Coburn - VP Human Resources

Extremely Grateful

Pam and Kate facilitated a fantastic Stress Management session for our organization’s geographically distributed employees. The combination of providing a forum for our employees to discuss their challenges during COVID, sharing some theory, and then outlining Stress Management strategies was a winning formula. We have received so much positive feedback about the session and we are eager for Pam and Kate to come back – they left our employees wanting more!

Pam and Kate were a joy to work with. Responsive, flexible, and willing to work with us to tailor the Stress Management session to the specific needs of our employees. Our organization was extremely grateful, and it made for a more compelling session, that these experts were able to adapt their delivery so that the session felt totally customized for us. We look forward to a continued, long-term partnership with Pam and Kate.
