I providestrategy partnership for leaders
Hi game-changing, health and human-system influencer! I’m glad you are here. I want to help you thrive. Your vision is ambitious, and we all would benefit from seeing it implemented. And you deserve support too.
LEADER STRATEGY PARTNERSHIP & COACHINGas a stand-alone service
Strategy and coaching sessions are “you time". Time away from the demands that constantly swirl around you. These sessions are where you allow yourself the supported breathing room you know you need, to think and feel your way forward.
You are the expert in your context. I’m there to help you excavate and advance the most value-aligned options. I help you create focus, reflect, ask tough questions, see where you are stuck, share my experiences and thoughts, acknowledge new insights, celebrate progress, encourage you, and nudge you to identify actionable steps forward.
You are doing game-changing work. We all thrive when you do. I’d love to support you in getting there.
LEADER STRATEGY PARTNERSHIP & COACHINGas part of a larger effort
One-on-one leader support and coaching can be added to a larger scope of strategy and facilitation work. This is the time we make for you, while also working on a bigger strategic conversation or initiative with your team and/or partners. No matter what the work is, as the leader, you and your ideas are always part of the equation and ecosystem. I welcome the opportunity to support your success too.
If you are interested in getting support as a leader—while in community with other leaders like you—be sure to check out upcoming gatherings.
- We reached out to Heather in the midst of major organizational change facing challenges recovering from COVID, leadership transitions, and a shifting public health/healthcare landscape. From the first meeting, it was clear we could not have found a better fit as she helped us identify underlying issues and build a foundation for a much-needed organizational realignment. Over several months, she helped our Management Team work through a number of competing interests, reimagine our role in the community, prioritize needs and next steps, and most importantly build capacity – and trust - among our team to tackle tough things together in the future.
- Heather is an incredibly skilled listener and thought partner, who provides insight, tools, and support that are practical, actionable, and lead to growth and improvement. She meets individuals and organizations wherever they are, and takes great care to understand how she can support and help guide toward success, while keeping the work and the priorities focused on the client needs, rather than her own agenda. After working with her through the COVID-19 pandemic, I can state with confidence that she and her work are flexible, creative, inspirational, and human-centered.
- Human-Centered Strategy is a valued partner of Granville Vance Public Health as we continue to position our health department to meet our community's needs, strengthen our workforce, and implement foundational capabilities to expand our services. Having a partner like Human-Centered Strategy, with its deep understanding of public health and ties to North Carolina initiatives, has allowed us to quickly adapt and improve as we look to meet the challenges of public health in an ever-changing landscape.
- Working with Heather has been a dream. I never have to wonder whether deadlines will be met or promises kept – Heather consistently delivers project materials that exceed my expectations. Not only does she produce high-quality content, Heather is a skilled facilitator and genuinely connects to people (even virtually) in an approachable way. Heather has elevated and accelerated our grant leadership team’s strategic planning efforts by regularly engaging and nudging us along in a time where we could easily be pulled away to a number of other job duties. I would enthusiastically recommend Heather to any organization or professional looking to improve their quality of work. Whether it be through written material, strategic partnership, or speaking engagements, Heather has proven herself to be a valuable addition to our team.
