Hey, I'm Kate Horton.

I'm all right at loads of things,

shit-house at others,

               but BRILLIANT at one:


I'm a leadership coach and the creative force behind Coaching CoLab. I've got a background in education and have been exclusively focused on coaching emerging and established leaders since 2019.

I reckon that great leadership is THE most important factor in the success of any team.

I also reckon that it's the hardest thing to get right

until now ... 


Leadership development should be as unique as you are.

Say goodbye to traditional coaching and mentoring methods – I do coaching differently. My coaching sessions seamlessly blend creativity, skill-building, and a touch of fun to elevate your leadership journey.

The only way to grow as a leader is the way that's right for you. You can read all the books, listen to all the podcasts and subscribe to all the newsletters you like, but the most effective way to make real improvements is through ongoing and individualised conversations.

Zoom Coaching

For a more traditional experience, we can jump on Zoom for one-on-one coaching.

These sessions are not your typical coaching conversations. They are dynamic, engaging, and, most importantly, effective.

Leadership breakthroughs happen when you take time to experiment and bounce ideas around. You'll be blown away with the ideas you uncover through coaching.

Here's a bunch of places where I've sprinkled some Coaching CoLab magic

What sets me apart?

O.k, first things first,

Yes this was my actual hair for two years. I'm creative, spontaneous a a little bit hectic. I also have a friend who is an excellent hairdresser, so I tend to get a bit experimental because life is short, you may as well have fun with it. 

That's also the vibe I bring to my coaching.

  1. Creativity Unleashed: I bring an element of creativity to every coaching session, making your leadership journey as exciting as it is transformative.

  2. Tailored for You: No cookie-cutter approaches here! Coaching CoLab's strategies are personalised to suit your unique leadership style and goals.

  3. Proven Results: With a post-grad in coaching and membership in the International Coaching Federation - I've got the backing of some great qualifications as well as many MANY success stories from coaching leaders since 2019.


I'm an accredited Regionally Allocated PLD provider. If you're in a school and want our friends at the Ministry of Education to pick up the tab for working together, then let's put a proposal together.


Did someone say RBPN funding? You betcha we can kick that tyre if you've got an NZBN.
