Today, Reverend Kat takes a jump into relationships at work!
When you think about relationships, what comes to mind is family, friends and love. However, relationships at work have a special dynamic. One reason this could be, of course, is that it has to do with money and the stress involved.
In today’s show, Kat highlights 2 wonderful stories. One is summarized below.
Kat worked for the postal service in Pennsylvania for fifteen years. One of her jobs was conflict resolution and she worked with many offices spread out across Pennsylvania.
At that job, Kat discovered that all relationships, including work relationships, have a common denominator. Though you make have opposite “positions” when you sit down with someone and “break bread” – you become a person instead of a “position.” When Kat would meet with the people for conflict resolution at the post office, she would bring, coffee, bagels, snacks. She would request that they sit down together.
What Kat discovered every time was that every person wanted appreciation – to be understood, heard, treated with respect – not like a machine!
During this process, the conflict would resolve itself… “typically, it would just dissolve.”
Reverend Kat’s 3 Tips On Work Relationships
- Give positive attention to people in your work environment, for example, “break bread.”
- Become genuinely curious about something you are curious about.
- Assume that you are all connected already – don’t make assumptions about the people you think you know.
Tune into today’s eye-opening show and find out how to transform a toxic work environment to a human and life-giving space.

About Reverend Kat (from her website):
I began my career as a Spiritual Leader when I was 7 years old. Sitting in the field beside my house one day, I asked God why some people were so unhappy. A real voice answered (no kidding),“Your job on this earth is to teach people about love and how to have what they want in life”.
From that day on, I have pursued this with a passion. From my original dream of becoming either a missionary or an actress, I have crafted a career that is grounded in Spirit as I tune into a channel that broadcasts what’s in others’ hearts and souls.
As a spiritual leader, I teach, write, and perform on life’s stage… and, as the voice predicted so long ago, I teach people about love and how to manifest from the heart.
I have faced many challenges in my life including the death of my mother when I was young, being kidnapped as a teenager and leaving a 20 plus year marriage in my 40’s. I have learned a ton through the school of hard knocks and delightful surprises as well as the training noted below.
