A day spent at Catalyst University can change the course of a leader’s journey.
No matter whether you are an emerging or experienced leader, you must put yourself on a path with others by your side. At Catalyst University, you will find inspiration from those who are on the same journey as you, energy from those who have just started their journey, and knowledge from those who have gone before you.
As a sponsor, your endowment ensures this continuum of legacy leadership.

The responsibility of leadership in business today is purposeful service. It requires companies to operate from a mindset of “more than.” That means to stand for more than profits, more than regulatory compliance and more than basic service. For me, it means leading from a heart of service, with a commitment to a sustainable business.
When I think about a sustainable business there are four categories where a mindset of “more than” must be present. Here’s how we apply it at Consumers Energy for people, the planet, profit and performance:
- People: At Consumers Energy, we care for our customers, co-workers and communities. Those we serve are not anonymous; they are families, friends and neighbors. We tend to the communities we work in because we know that with intentional effort we can make an impact on our hometowns. That intentional effort enables our neighborhoods to thrive. We serve co-workers knowing they are uniquely gifted and work from their own hearts of service.
- Planet: My co-workers and I are stewards of the environment going above and beyond compliance. We all live here and should take every step to ensure our beautiful world is left better than we found it.
- Profit: Our company delivers consistent returns to shareholders. Our investors are retirees and individuals who have trusted us with their savings.
- Performance: All of these must be underpinned by unwavering commitment to being world-class performers.
By working with Catalyst University to nurture strong leaders, we are setting a solid foundation for success and making connections to Michigan communities that go well beyond delivering energy.
I am proud to lead a company that stands for “more than.” CMS Energy: World-Class Performance Delivering Hometown Service.
