By engaging Heather’s coaching program, it’s the company communicating value to me as a lead.
As a result of Heather’s coaching, I’m able to more readily recognize individual needs of my workers, as well as plan, shift, and reevaluate my expectations.
I’ve learned how to be more assertive in my communications in a positive non-confrontational manner; this has resulted in more positive and constructive feedback.
Heather helped us develop authentic leadership: all parties owning their parts when there is a breakdown; breaking things into chunks to finish strong on each piece.
We have further realized our individual strengths as leaders and are embracing those to use each of us more effectively.
Because of Heather’s coaching, I believe I have grown considerably as a leader in the past six months and have achieved my target growth areas.
The biggest change was an increased self-awareness. Additionally, we have been communicating better as a department, in my opinion.
Heather taught me it’s okay to put my achiever down and take a minute to Relate; relating will build the trust and the trust is what I will need later to get the feedback we require to grow.
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.
