Kathleen Harnish McKune
CEO and Co-founder of TeamTech, Kathleen’s professional passion is to help organizations move their people and ideas into action. She helps groups get unstuck by customizing TeamTech’s proven methods to fit their needs, goals – and culture. An expert facilitator, Kathleen has been helping groups big and small identify and reach their goals for nearly 30 years. She interned with Dr. W. Edwards Deming, widely acknowledged as the architect of the quality management movement.
Kathleen follows Dr. Deming’s core philosophy that the way organizations become high-performing is through their people. At the core of TeamTech’s work is a fundamental belief that people want to lead – and can lead – if they’re empowered and prepared to do so. Her particular expertise is helping organizations leverage diverse opinions to move forward. Instead of seeing divisions among people, Kathleen sees opportunities to link – and emerge even stronger.
Among her accomplishments:
- Co-created and facilitated The Kansas Collaborative whose Pharmaceutical Collaborative project won the Council of State Government’s Innovation Award and saved over $7 million annually for state and local governments.
- Facilitated Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius’ BEST (Budget Efficiency Savings Teams) efforts to reap nearly $1 billion in savings for the state.
- Is well known in the Kansas City community as an organizational coach and facilitator that is “not like a consultant” but is a partner who stays with the project until the outcomes are reached.
Kathleen earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Pittsburg State University and an MBA from the University of Kansas. In addition, Kathleen was a Rotary International scholar and attended the University of Durham, England.
