Heather’s process gave me honest feedback of where I stand as a leader, where I want to go and provided a path to achieve my goals.

Since other leaders and supervisors were involved it gave me the confidence and comfort knowing they were supportive and aware of our common goal.

I found Heather’s techniques to conduct self-check-ins helpful, stepping “outside” of situations to evaluate myself.
