M.A. in Leadership, EQ-I 2.0 Certified, Prosci Certified in Change Management, Best Selling Author, and creator of the Growth Catalyst Programs.

My name is Sandra J. Horton, I am known as the Business & Leadership Consultant| Trainer | Facilitator.

I have facilitated, connected, and provided training to businesses around the globe to change perspectives and elevate their success.

Over the last 25 + years, as a one percenter in sales and consulting, I have experienced tremendous growth for myself and my clients in all areas of business. As a systems thinker, problem solver and morale booster, I ignite individuals into action which results in increased productivity and revenue.


The two keys of success for me as a Growth Catalyst is to provide a road-map to change which eliminates system roadblocks. And, by giving individuals a booster shot of morale, it level ups, improves communication, and connection across the organization that leads to growth in all areas.

As a woman who lived in a numb state while being externally focused and financially motivated, I chased the proverbial “golden ticket”. I arrived at success early in my sales and training career being the top in my industry. I realized though I still had the emptiness inside.

I remembered my unresolved story that once awakened changed my perspective that changed my life. Growing in clarity, self-awareness and taking responsibility for my life, I
became more emotionally intelligent as an Authentic Leader. No longer limited by scarcity thinking I unlocked abundance.

I integrated and became confident, empowered and whole in myself and all my businesses. Today, I apply these essential skill-sets to my training, workshops, coaching and consulting business. It brings me great joy to break inertia and resistance to change so that businesses thrive in complete harmony.

Through this resilience I became a successful activator which transformed me to an ignitor. Today, I have renewed 1000’s of individuals and businesses who are achieving great success.

My mission is to guide people and businesses through change that leads to growth.


The Growth Catalyst Process is designed for innovative leaders through a combination of consulting, coaching and facilitation.

Sandra has also developed a unique approach called The Growth Catalyst. It is designed specifically for innovative leaders who run entrepreneurial organizations. They have the following challenges; they are struggling to manage change; they are not performing or being as effective as they would like to be, and as a result, are not reaching their daring goals.

Prior, to running her consulting business, Sandra had an award-winning sales and change management career in the pharmaceutical industry. While consistently ranking #1 as a senior sales leader at Lanier Canada and Mead Johnson, Sandy did her first deep dive into systems change working at Eli Lilly Canada. 

At a time when the health care sector was undergoing enormous restructuring, Sandra spearheaded ground-breaking strategies to forge mutually beneficial partnerships to improve patient care across seven health authorities in BC and Alberta. Sandy also spent three years at Roche Diagnostics once again expanding her role to design and deliver value-add programs and collaborative education initiatives across various regional health care authorities. Building on her growing collaborative expertise, in 2014, Sandra organized the Comprehensive Medical Review Conference that offered leading medical education for 200 BC physicians.
