I'm Heather.

I help people and teams thrive.

I don't do "woo." And I won't tell you how you feel.

Because I'm good at what I do.

 

I work with executives, Fortune 100 companies, startups, and influencers globally

 

 
 
 

"I would wholeheartedly recommend Heather to anyone, including those who didn't even know they were in need of coaching. She is the most attentive and perceptive person I have yet to encounter. Through her guidance, I have grown in ways that have made me challenge why and how I implement certain actions, and my personal and professional choices are now much more aligned with my long-term goals."

individuals.

It’s lonely at the top. It’s hard to get good feedback, and high-status people are often regarded as mythologies rather than as human. Be seen for who you are, get the relationships and impact that you want, and learn to handle difficult and nuanced conversations consistently well.

teams.

I get teams to trust each other, work together better, and tackle hard conversations. I mediate conflicts; I increase emotional intelligence and psychological safety; I can sit in on board meetings and call out then clear up emotional dynamics as they unfold. It's bespoke organizational health.

Skeptical?

Coaching is an unregulated industry with no barrier to entry.

I’m good. If you’ve found me, you were referred here. I could write copy to ramp you up with warm and fuzzy or exciting terms about empowerment and personal transformation. If you’re like me, that will come across as fluff over substance.

I also won’t insist on what your experience is. Some coaches declare what’s happening for a client—how they’re hiding or feeling, etc. This flexes “subjective validation,” a cognitive bias in which the listener is likely to agree, even when the statement is incorrect or a red herring partial truth. In addition to being ethically dodgy and a time sink, it inhibits the client’s skill development.  

I will call you out when you need it and empathize so you know I get you.

From a foundation of trust you can grow, and I’ll titrate my feedback to prod you towards or to the edge of your comfort zone, pending what you prefer and what works for you. 

You'll be at ease with and have a much greater sense of self, you'll have far richer relationships that you want, and your life will be deeply values aligned. You'll also have more access to joy—because when we un-numb the things we do not want to feel, we feel our positive feelings with greater depth and vibrance.
