Kate Schlesinger

An educator at heart, Kate Schlesinger is passionate about helping leaders find realistic solutions to their everyday challenges and getting them to fall in love with their organizations again. Kate joined the CPED team in 2017 and serves the Madison area, helping organizations utilize assessments, programs, and consulting services to improve the company culture and retain top talent. She is proud of the emerging leadership programs she has designed for several clients using Transition to Executive Management as a guide to select programs and instructors that match the client’s needs. With this information, she works with clients to co-design a solution that can be delivered at the pace, location, and budget the client needs. Kate’s graduate work focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion research and she’s proud of how she has been able to extend that to her CPED role. She recently helped design a custom project management certificate track, from which the client has already seen significant financial and productivity returns.

Mark Seifert

Mark Seifert works throughout the Milwaukee area to uncover the strategic goals of partner organizations and connect them to the resources they need to build resiliency and achieve strategic growth. Mark has been with CPED for seven years. He is proud of a major partnership in which he helped design, build, and co-facilitate a formal front line leader program. This two-year engagement positively impacted more than 500 leaders at the organization. Mark also enjoys helping organizations through times of industry disruption and business shifts. When there’s a need to reskill and strategize on new ways to approach the market, Mark has offered solutions through assessments and coaching to reevaluate leadership agendas.
