Catalyst is a transformational Leadership Program for Cultural Change


Facing fast growth and coming out of the ‘COVID Hangover’, Matthew’s Senior Leadership Team had identified a need for changing their culture in order to achieve their vision and goals. And they knew that the change had to start at the top of the organisation. In partnership with Matthews, we have designed and delivered a transformational leadership program aimed at the most Senior Leaders and also Managers who lead teams or departments.


Catalyst (internally called leadership@matthews) is built around Matthew’s strategy, what good leadership looks like, and which behaviours create the culture they need in order to achieve their organisational goals. This builds the 3 cornerstones of the program:

Catalyst’s high-level aims are to


To enable & embed long-term behavioural change the participants are taken on a learning journey

Behaviours drive Culture, Culture Drives Performance

Catalyst is a 12 month transformational program that takes a holistic approach which starts with getting really clear on what ‘great culture looks like’, connecting to business goals and values before equipping leaders with the mindset and skills in order to lead by example and create a movement.

Intact Teams facilitates all parts of the program bringing in experienced facilitators and organisational coaches. You will experience blended learning, from pre-reading and assessments to live online and face to face sessions. Catalyst is not a sit and listen program. All our workshops are highly interactive. We lean on proven research and leadership models but aim to keep theory at a minimum.


We facilitated the program in 2022/23 with the 21 participants of the Senior Leadership and Leadership Teams. All participants have been reporting an improvement on their own leadership and the impact on the people they lead. Everyone agrees they notice higher levels of trust and team member engagement.

Jessica’s deep understanding of leadership and behaviour, and her willingness to work collaboratively to ensure the workshops and group coaching sessions really fit our business and could evolve based on ongoing feedback, made her an obvious choice to work with. She has an engaging, energetic, and authentic style, and excellent facilitation skills.
