Kathy Nielsen, Operations Coach at The Blue Collar Success Group, brings a vast amount of industry-specific knowledge and experience to the BCSG team and every client she coaches.
She started in an entry-level office position and worked all the way up to running a successful HVAC company. During this time, Kathy seamlessly facilitated six (!) software conversions, developed and wrote specific internal processes, and hired the correct people to execute those processes.
She truly understands the ins and outs of operational strategy and how to take a company to the next level. Her wisdom and interest in this area grew into a passion for helping others take a deeper look at their operations and gain a new perspective surrounding overall efficiency, processes, and accountability within their companies.
Kathy has become a sought-after Operations Coach in the industry, specializing in software integration/optimization, hiring and training individual office team members (and groups), and ensuring everyone is working at their potential in appropriate positions. She is certified to administer comprehensive team member assessments, as well.
Kathy’s skill and passion for helping others succeed fueled her desire to lead the BCSG’s Office Champions Club, which gives office leaders and managers a platform for them to grow, develop their talents, and gain a group of supportive peers.
She has also contributed her knowledge to helping software developers better approach their planning and programming to serve our industry. Kathy continually invests in herself personally and professionally, always striving to increase her understanding of current software applications and interpersonal communications. She believes software should do the heavy lifting in a company, each team member should be given the tools necessary to succeed, and there should be a purpose behind every procedure.
The Six Week Breakthrough
Kathy and her husband, Kurt, live in the country outside Des Moines, IA. Both were born and raised in Iowa and have three girls (his, mine, and ours) between them. They enjoy being outdoors, camping, riding motorcycles, and spending time with family and friends.
