Lead Her Ship, Executive Coaching Program for Women with Harriett Schumacher

Ready for Your Vision

to Become a Reality?

Introducing LeadHerShip, a 6-month executive group coaching program led by Harriette Schumacher for high-performing women who want to get unstuck, redefine success, and create careers that are lucrative, satisfying, and impactful.

You were meant to achieve great things.

Yet, you’re not exactly where you want to be in your career.

You might have a highly-regarded job or work at a successful company, but you find yourself craving more confidence, satisfaction, and influence.

You want to increase your impact - and your income - while truly growing into your leadership potential. You’d love to use your voice more to speak up and speak out.

And, even more importantly, you’d love to have these changes in your life without burning out.

You just aren’t sure what changes you need to make to get to the point where you’ll have these things.

Harriette Schumacher-0777

You’re working to build a career and a life that you’ll love.

But I’ll bet that right now you’re probably struggling with feelings of:



worry about the future

You're dealing with:

a drop in your confidence

working more, yet at the same salary

concerns over career advancements

You’re wondering:

How am I ever going to find my way past this career plateau? Will I be stuck here forever?

Will I ever feel truly satisfied with my job? Will all of these long hours and overworking be worth it in the end?

Why isn’t my voice being heard? How do I get my higher ups, and even my team, to pay attention and see me as a true leader?

Is there enough of me to show up — at my best — at home, at work, and in my community?

If you feel like you’re trying best, yet still floundering, you need a game plan to insure your future given how hard you’ve worked to get to the position you’re in right now.

And more importantly, know that you aren’t alone. There are so many other women out there, just like you, who have the skill, the drive, and the motivation to start making changes in their life.

The world needs better leaders — and they need to be women.

Will you be one?


“LeadHerShip helped bring both personal and professional goals into perspective for me. Even though it was delivered virtually, Harriette and my fellow LeadHerShip participants were able to create a feeling of community and support. LeadHerShip brought me unexpected insights and motivation. It was effective executive coaching but also surprisingly fun.”

“Harriette is a compelling and charismatic influencer, coach and presenter with a natural ability to engage and motivate her audience. She is the consummate professional and always meticulously prepared for all events. A professional with well-honed instincts in reading and gauging her audience Harriette sets the tone and capitalizes on the best strategy for the group. I always looked forward to coaching and training events with Harriette knowing that I would be engaged, empowered and entertained while ultimately learning new skills and gaining awareness.”

Introducing—Your Guide!

Hi! I’m Harriette Schumacher, a Certified Executive Coach, women’s leadership expert, and CEO of Big Leap Leadership.

For over 20 years, I’ve led business and leadership transformation for a global clientele. My work with Fortune 500 leaders and hosting of thousands of fierce conversations enables me to understand what’s required to make big shifts, and generate results.

But my personal experience in times of universal uncertainty is what makes me the perfect leadership coach to guide women who are ready to get unstuck and become unstoppable. It’s my mission to empower mid-career professional women with the confidence and strategies needed to elevate their careers, lead authentically, and achieve any goals they set for themselves.

I’ve run a successful coaching business since 2013, but I wouldn’t have made it completely on my own. I had to invest in my own growth: I needed a mentor, someone who could guide me, challenge me and hold me accountable when things got hard and I wanted to give up.

Let me be that person for 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.”

Are YOU A Good Fit For This Program?

LeadHerShip Is Right For You If:

You’ve already achieved a certain level of success, and want to go deeper and move faster.

You’re committed to your growth. You no longer want to stay stagnant. It’s time to evolve; now is the time to take action.

You want to be challenged. You don’t need another motivational quote or affirmation to motivate you. You want tried and tested systems and strategies to move you forward and achieve even greater results.

LeadHerShip Is Not A Good Fit If:

You’re new to your business or the corporate world. This program is for women who have a vision of where they want to go, with experience to go with it.

You’re looking for a cheerleader. This program is for women who want a coach who will be direct and tell them where they are failing, and, most importantly, how to course correct.

You’re not sure you have the time or interest to work toward your goals right now. Nothing changes if nothing changes, and this program requires you to take action.


“LeadHerShip was absolutely transformational for me. When I began Harriette’s 6-week intensive coaching program, I was holding onto resentment from what had gone wrong in my career, and was extremely unclear on where my path was headed and what I truly wanted. By week 3, I had a major breakthrough – I found the clarity and vision I had been seeking for years. Six weeks of professional development with Harriette allowed me to grow more as a professional than I had in years of searching on my own. If you are a woman who knows she has what it takes, but is having trouble figuring out just how to get there, you need Harriette’s LeadHerShip program. I have found my confidence again, gotten clear on what exactly it is that I want, and have a solid plan on how to get there."

There are limited spots available. Does one of them have your name on it?


“I highly recommend the LeadHerShip program!  I got so much more out of this than I anticipated.  The variety of topics covered makes for an extremely well-rounded overview of leadership in general, but then drills down into specific topics so well that they are immediately applicable to the workplace, or your personal development.  Harriette is an outstanding coach.  She is not only an extremely skilled coach, but also approachable and just so damned likable!  Whether you are looking to work on your time management skills, how to improve your relationship with money, or my favourite – dealing with change management … Harriette’s got you covered.  I have made huge strides in my strategy development with the skills gained from this course, as well as applied a lot of the small tips shared among the group in my day to day work.  Take this course – you won’t be sorry.

Have Questions? Here are the FAQs

Why Should I Join LeadHerShip?

Because no one cares about your career as much as you do. If you are feeling stuck, and you have reached a career plateau, and find little time for your development this is for you. Many of the women I work with struggle with finding time to keep up with their own development and growth while juggling other commitments. Their growth can tend to take a back seat.  

In addition to that, not everyone understands what it truly takes to build an amazing career.  Maybe you’re feeling isolated and don’t have anyone who understands where you’re coming from.

I get it. I’ve built a successful career and business helping other people learn how to be successful while being a mother at the same time. I know what feeling overwhelmed and isolated is all about. 

You’ve spent your entire career serving others and managing whatever challenges have come your way. Now, it’s time you lead the way. Isn’t it time you put yourself first?

Who will run LeadHerShip?

This program will be facilitated by Harriette Schumacher, Certified Executive Coach, and CEO of Big Leap Leadership Inc. 

Drawing on my 15-year high-level corporate career (where I participated in the development of thousands of leaders, designed and delivered global curriculum for numerous national and international companies, managed multi-million dollar training budgets), plus my training and experience as a certified executive coach, I understand — and have faced and overcome — the exact types of challenges you’re dealing with. 

I’ve run a successful coaching business since 2013, but I wouldn’t have made it completely on my own. I had to invest in my own growth: I needed a mentor, someone who could guide me, challenge me, and hold me accountable when things got hard and I wanted to give up.

Let me be that person for you.

Who will be in my group?

Each “cohort” of this executive group coaching program will include highly-ambitious women who come from the amazing members of Harriette’s networks and community, including current and former course members and clients, her subscribers, followers of her LinkedIn and other social media platforms. 

How will this be different from other leadership training courses I’ve attended?

We take great pride in being radically different from everyone else out there. Bottom line, we care more. Having worked in leadership development my entire life, I can tell you many courses don’t provide ROI. There is a huge gap with accountability in training and coaching. Typical leadership training courses bring you together for two days, fill you with information and send you packing. There is no one to ask a question to, no additional support when you need it. We know that is not how you get real results. 

We are leadership development experts for women. This program was built by women for women. Not only will you meet with us 5 hours a month, we have a complete accountability system embedded into the program to ensure you reach your goals.

How do I get my employer to sponsor me to attend?

100% of the graduates of LeadHERship were sponsored to attend by their employer. But, you have to ask. Many women struggle with asking because they feel guilt, or feel like they lack the authority to do so. I get it. However, you also need to know that this is completely normal, and there are tons of women out there who have this conversation successfully, and their careers are skyrocketing. So, we encourage you to build your case, explain to them why you want to attend, the value you will get, and the benefits it will provide to you and your employer.

We’ve also created an email template that you can send to your employer, feel free to edit it as you like.  Like we always say, no one cares about your career as much as you do, so you need to advocate for your career and your growth.

I have another question that’s not listed here, how do I get in touch?

Absolutely, send us an email directly: harriette@bigleapleadership.com.


“Harriette is a breath of fresh air. A really smart, intuitive one. Working with her is a true partnership – she’s not afraid to ask (or answer!) tough questions, and no idea of effort is off-limits to be challenged in the spirit of making it even better. She has a brilliant knack for knowing exactly what questions to ask to get down to the heart of any matter, and she’s an expert at approaching tricky challenges in a creative and focused way, always driving toward a resolution that is substantial and meaningful to everyone involved. But she’s also super caring, empathetic, and totally genuine – she's the friend you can always count on to be honest with you, because she truly cares and wants the best for you. The short version? You want Harriette in your corner.”
