"Harriette is simply amazing. She has the life experience to provide valuable insights and guidance and she helped me lean into my style in order to effectively build my leadership skills. I benefitted tremendously from working with her and I highly recommend her as an executive coach."

Lauren NunesChief People Officer, Twitch.TV

Your leadership is your competitive advantage.

Better leadership means better results for your organization. But because leadership is as complex as the humans involved, it’s challenging for organizations to solve leadership problems on their own.

We can help. We’ll partner with you, identify the right leadership development approach to make the biggest impact, and design the solution to get you there.

Our process focuses on:

Identifying the root issues at the heart of leadership problems.


Being boldly honest about the deep blocks & barriers your leaders are experiencing


Coaching with a lens toward improving your people & organization as a whole


Aligning our work to your unique strategy, leadership competencies, and cultural values.


Measurable ROI so we can move beyond smile sheets and measure what matters: behaviour change.


As a result, the organizations and leaders we work with enjoy repeatable, sustainable results, long after our relationship ends.

“Harriette has given my leadership team the ability to enter into a dialogue about core elements of our work in a positive and constructive way and is lending itself to change and opportunities for our work team. The framework and models we learned are used by us day-to-day and we’re getting more things accomplished. And we’re not only doing this with our team but we’re also taking this approach with our stakeholders and teaching them as well so that we can be productive in our relationships as we work through economic and social change in the province of Nova Scotia.”

Amie HaughnDirector, Employment Programs, Labour and Advanced Education

Hi, I’m Harriette Schumacher, a Certified Executive Coach and Leadership Development Expert with 20+ years of global experience.

For the past two decades, I’ve been a trusted advisor to global organizations seeking business and leadership transformation, including Ford, Amazon, Walmart, Estee Lauder, Samsung, and Emera.

My work with Fortune 500 executives enables me to understand what’s required to make big shifts and generate results and lead through volatility and ambiguity.

In a world of overpromising, quick fixes, and one-size-fits-all solutions, I offer a partnership to my clients, guiding them through the challenging (but worth it!) deep inner work that leads to greater leadership effectiveness.

"I can not say enough great things about Harriette and the experience I had with her as my executive coach. The time enabled to me see myself as others see me. This is such an asset. I know who I am and who I want to be. I am clear on how my actions may or may not have been aligned with how I want to be perceived. It has given me the courage to be myself, be vulnerable and lead in alignment with my core values. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!"
