What is possible when you leverage your team's strengths?
Heather’s passionate leadership, influence and expertise are exceptional. The positive impact of her executive coaching on our team’s development individually and collectively has been extraordinary.
I have experienced first-hand the positive difference it has made to the efficiency of our team’s work together and as a result, our ability to stay focused on our priorities with respect to learning, student achievement, and well-being.
Tamara Nugent, Director of Education, Guelph, ON
I am passionate about teams: people working together in a trusting environment to discover, to learn and to move in new directions is incredibly rewarding to both the team, the leader and the organization. When learning becomes possible, through conversation, and risk taking, learning that opens up new ideas and directions can be transformational. When assumptions and beliefs are challenged, new learning taken on, deeper relationships formed, the organization gets so much more of their people and the people get so much more of their organization!
I've spent most of my working life as part of teams or building teams. I find joy in supporting teams to be strong, resilient spaces for adults to learn and grow together through questioning ideas, implementing strategies, and stretching their own perspectives to find a collective vision. I would love to work with your team to create strategies and tools to improve team communication and create space to thrive.

held among people who care.

We learn together in teams.
This involves a shift from a spirit of advocacy
to a spirit of enquiry. Peter Senge
Finding good players is easy.
Getting them to play as a team
is another story. Casey Stengal
In great teams, conflict becomes productive.
The free flow of conflicting ideas is critical for creative thinking,
for discovering new solutions no one individual
would have come to on his own. Peter Senge
All learning is social.
It is with our peers that we will ultimately
find our voice and change our world.
It is in community that our lives are transformed.
Small groups change the world. Peter Block
