Boost Your Event With Heather 

Hiring a Leadership Coach is an invaluable tool to help your company leaders manage their teams. While companies may not be able to hire a coach for every manager and then invest 3-6 months of one-on-one coaching, Heather brings the foundational concepts to her speaking events so the transformation can start immediately. Heather fuses proven research with practical insights for positive change.

Speaking Topics

Leadership Begins Within

Heather’s approach to coaching leaders and leadership teams is holistic. This means she focuses on the body, heart, mind, and spirit of the leader because if we don’t give attention to all the facets of ourselves, we aren’t living up to our leadership potential.

Guiding Children to be Responsible Leaders

The price of homes has skyrocketed, causing many parents to wonder if their college students will ever be homeowners. Do they even want to be?

If people can spiral down, then they can learn to spiral up. Using statistical and experiential research, Heather shares how we can live stronger, happier, more fulfilling lives.

Change Is Hard

One area that has brought many clients to seek Heather’s coaching is when a person is undergoing a work or family transition. Changing jobs or going through a divorce, having a surprise baby or reluctantly facing retirement: transitions create stress in even the healthiest person. Heather offers insight into enduring these movements with more clarity, confidence, and courage so we don’t let the fear of uncertainty rob our joy.

Grace Space

Many of Heather’s corporate clients seek her counsel on company communication and conflict. Grace Space is the term Heather uses to foster areas of grace using seven principles: Responding vs. Reacting; Questioning vs. Accusing; Receptivity vs. Defensiveness; Constructive Language vs. Destructive Language; Connection vs. Protection; Freedom vs. Control; and Trust vs. Fear. 

Move from Surviving to Thriving

Survival thinking creates a hunker-down mindset that is toxic to living the life you were made for. A thriver lives with intentionality. Learn the simple tools that will transform you into a thriver.

Rethinking American Education

Heather began her professional life as an educator and then moved to training teachers. After more than 20 years in the field, it was hard not to notice the cracks in the system. In this talk, Heather shares her experience and thoughts on ways to improve the status quo of American education including curriculum, discipline, and students today with the goal of forging a new and improved path forward.
