The world needs
better leaders.

We need leaders with greater integrity, courage, compassion, competence, and character.

Most approaches to leadership development are failing because they are fast and superficial. They don’t facilitate genuine breakthroughs.

I bring a new perspective on growth, one that will give you the results you’ve been striving for.

Whether your organization is a Fortune 500 company or a small firm, I will be a partner who will hold your leaders accountable. Someone who will point out their blind spots. Someone who will draw out their strengths. Someone who is truly invested in helping them succeed — so that your organization will succeed.

If you want breakthrough transformation — and the ability to sustain it — I would love to partner with you.

“Working with Harriette in the early days of being a people leader was a transformative experience. It has forever changed the way I approach my work and the relationships I have in the workplace. She helped me see the true value of candid, meaningful conversations and getting right to the heart of important issues. She also taught me how introspection and self-reflection can serve to see clearer paths forward: identifying strengths and figuring out how to develop them, so we can bring our best to work. I have recommended Harriette to colleagues and friends, and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.”
