Katia Verresen’s philosophy around inner power has made her a revered executive coach, advising leaders at organizations like Airbnb, WhatsApp, and Stanford. What makes her approach so impactful? It centers around living a life of joy. 

Katia affirms that achievement and fulfillment aren’t mutually exclusive and shares tools to use joy as a compass in our daily lives. Whereas society may cause us to lose our sense of imagination, she urges us to reclaim it: “Inner power is this self-cultivation, self-respect, and dignity to say that you have a right to feel the way you want to feel. If you want to acknowledge the beauty of the world that you live in, then you have that right.”
