Heidi continuously receives glowing testimonials from her clients. Below are some examples of specific quotes that her clients have said about her.
Please note, we are always happy to supply specific references should you require them.
Heidi, in the best practice of highly effective people, seeks to understand before being understood. Having undertaken a personal diagnosis, Heidi's prescription provides a set of leadership tools centred on taking control rather than being controlled. This is management coaching par excellence, developing 'self' to better influence the performance of others."Principal, Banc of America Leasing
Working with Heidi over the past several months I have made some significant progress. In addition I have been able to leverage Heidi's business and corporate experience on some specific teambuilding activities within my organisation. These have contributed to a step change in team working and financial performance. Heidi has proven to be a very effective coach. She is able to quickly grasp the issues at hand and tailors her coaching accordingly. She combines her challenge with empathy and humour in a way that has maximised my personal development outcomes."Vice President, Shell
I came to Heidi because of my disappointment with a previous organisation. Heidi was very good at identifying what areas I needed to explore about my values and working preferences and had a great number of different tools to use. The time taken to analyse and evaluate the results of some of the exercises was absolutely vital in giving confidence about what I should be looking for and has enabled me to firm up in my own mind what steps I need to take to achieve greater satisfaction and enjoyment at work and greater control over my career. I would definitely recommend her."Mark Metcalf , E.C. Harris
