Performance • Wellbeing • Success

Korage is on a mission to redefine the way we embrace life’s experiences. We firmly believe that optimal performance is not achieved only by entering a positive state of mind, but rather by accepting discomfort as a part of the whole to help you achieve your desired goals

n. The courageous willingness to fully experience the comfort and discomfort of the growth process.

Korage’s mission is simple: We help manage work-related stress and redefine success, one person at a time, one team at a time.

Our mission is to encourage acceptance of uncomfortable emotions while still committing to acting according to who you really want to be.

We want to you to thrive.

In our pursuit of peak performance, we often find ourselves avoiding discomfort and seeking to control emotions. The desire for an optimal state of performance can lead us to suppress feelings that we deem negative or undesirable. Paradoxically, this effort to maintain emotional balance can hinder your growth.

By dodging uncomfortable emotions, we close the door to a deeper understanding of ourselves and our capabilities. When you focus on the “why” behind your actions, while accepting the discomfort of vulnerability, you unlock a higher level of performance.

For us, performing at your best isn’t a fixed peak; it is about being willing to consistently stretch yourself and your limits both in a powerful and healthy way.

We want to help you make your typical performance your best performance.

“My favorite thing about working with Kathy is her ability to see through what I am saying out loud and see what is deeper. And then to lovingly challenge me to see it as well. I love that we finish every session with a sense of closure, even on major topics. I always feel so ready to tackle the next week, and filled with confidence about it. Also, she is hilarious, and that makes coaching fun, even when we are talking about mortality.”
