  1. Regardless of their position in the company, Katherine goes out of her way to shine the spotlight on people to highlight how they contributed to a successful initiative or outcome. She genuinely cares for her employees and makes everyone feel a part of the team. She is biased towards action in a hyper competitive industry. She is decisive and would rather make a decision to move forward with an initiative, despite some risk of failure, rather than to wait for the perfect plan. Katherine is tough but fair. She lays out her expectations clearly and holds people accountable. But she also understands that “life happens” to employees in ways that may impact results. She doesn’t treat employees like disposable robots. In an industry that emphasizes rapid time to market and hype over delivering solutions that actually work and customers are willing to pay for, she insists on developing quality software and helping customers and partners achieve success with their investments.
