Kathy has presented her amazing appreciative inquiry and communications/language identifier workshops at two of my organizations. She is a thoughtful leader ensuring everyone at the workshop has a voice and is able to contribute. The workshops are high energy and a lot of fun! The exercises she brought us through have had wonderful implications for our organization laying the ground work for a rebranding and ensuring our communications are on point. I would highly recommend any of her workshops or activities to any organization looking to find their voice. Thanks Kathy!-

“I had the absolute joy to work with Kathleen Arnason on my book,  ‘Colouring Your Dreams Come True.’ What a privilege to work with someone who truly gets what you are saying and has the expertise to reflect it back so that your material becomes new and fresh and alive. Writing can be a ‘lonely’ occupation and it’s a vulnerable thing to show someone your ‘baby’ and hope they like it and will really hear the voice behind the words on the page. Thank you, Kathleen. You are a treasure.” -June Swadron

If you are thinking about writing a book or writing anything please know Kathleen Arnason is the very best coach you can have.  Kathleen will inspire your creativity. You will be taken on a journey of extreme soul searching and she will bring out talent within yourself you never knew existed.  Kathleen coached me as I was writing my first novel, ‘The Gate’. It is a true story about abuse. There were many very difficult parts to my story and she patiently guided me through those times. The book was launched on May 11, 2016. I never dreamed I would be able to complete this work and without Kathleen, I know it would not have come to fruition.-Jan Willoughby

I have worked with Kathleen twice now. We are in the process of getting my second book published. She encourages you to dig deep into yourself and gives excellent ideas and guidance. She is an amazing mentor as well. You are fortunate to have her coaching you. – Alice Graham      

Kathleen helped take a passion and shape it into a book. She is a passionate storyteller, and is devoted at every step to help a writer get their story written and published. Kathleen was there every step of the way. When I needed to take a next step she was ready with knowledgeable, patient, and professional resources. She’s done it many times for a wide range of people therefore she knows all the angles, and is so ready to share them. – Christopher Bowers


Working with Kathleen Arnason has been a wonderful experience. I have been writing on and off for a decade now, never being able to stay focused, motivated or moving forward. Many times thinking I’d just give up.
She has encouraged me to continue. Her positive attitude and heartfelt organic soulfulness has gently nudged me along. I’ve appreciated her one on one support and guidance during the multitudes of editing nightmares and re-writes. She has made the whole process a much more pleasurable experience than a pack’em, stack’em, cookie cutter publishing company. I will be forever grateful for her enthusiasm and interest in helping me to find and keep ‘my’ voice to ‘my’ story.- Christine Henry
