“LeadHerShip was absolutely transformational for me.

When I began Harriette’s 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.”

Director, Global Communications, Dash Hudson

“I don’t have as much self-doubt when I’m in a meeting with my team.

I’m able to temper my emotions but still, express my opinion. I see the leadership team looking to me. We work together better. I feel like we are all pulling towards the same goal, not just me pushing. If you are willing to commit to the change you want to see in your life and career get off the fence and jump in! It’s more than worth it! It was an amazing experience to push myself, but I also feel validated about the woman leader I am and can grow into.”

“I had the privilege and gift of participating in LeadHERship with Harriette’s profound guidance, strongest of support, and endless wisdom.

It’s been transformational to look closely at my own leadHERship; to consider the gap between what it is and what I want it to be; and most of all, to be equipped and empowered to step into all I’m capable of and more. And not alone: throughout, I’ve been part of an amazing cohort of other LeadHERS. Together, we’ve learned, we’ve stretched, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve led – in uniquely feminine and powerful ways. I cannot recommend the program or Harriette highly enough. Truly.”

Meet your coach

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

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

I’m passionate about elevating women into leadership and I’m proud to say that women I’ve worked with are better prepared and more confident to succeed in today’s challenging environment.

I hold a Master’s in Executive & Organizational Coaching, and multiple industry credentials, but the women I work with choose to partner with me because of my tenacity, and down-to-earth approach to helping them succeed.

I created this program because I believe the world needs better leaders, and they need to be women.

I want to equip you with the skills, strategies, coaching, and support to achieve the career and life that you want.

My career journey hasn’t always been easy. I didn’t get to where I am on my own. I’ve needed to invest in my growth, and sought the counsel of coaches to guide me, challenge me, and hold me accountable when things got hard and I wanted to quit.
I’m ready to be that person for you.

Are you ready to step into what’s next for you?

“LeadHERship is 100% worth the time.

Ignore the voice that says you don’t have the time during work hours; the value is tenfold the time you take from your workday.”
Kyla Morgan
Director of Human Resources, Seaboard Atlantic

“Do not hesitate in embarking on this journey with LeadHERship – it will transform your life.

I would wholeheartedly recommend LeadHERship to friends and clients who are committed to preparing to lead with conviction and integrity. It’s been a wonderful place of self-discovery and growth which I highly recommend- especially to those who were newly promoted into Director and VP roles. I gained and unlocked so much personally and professionally from our time together. There are things I’ve wrestled with expressing for most of my adult life and that freedom and clarity is priceless. Harriette truly has a gift in honouring where your broken bits are and creating a space that is restorative of women who have been burnt out while also commanding the best of you to craft a new view of self and embodying a new kind of leadership.”
Vanyah Harrigan
Director, Princeton University

Lisa Cudmore

“I have grown immensely as a leader

and in my personal growth as well. As a child I was taught children are seen and not heard, I had no voice, and what I did have I was scared to use. Now I feel that I am a great listener and a compassionate fierce woman who can speak her mind and not react instantly to conversations. I am so grateful for finding Harriette and the women who took part with me. It was almost like a breath of fresh air listening to the other challenges women face both at work and personally. I finally realized that I was not alone in this struggling chapter of life, my story was different but many others have the same insecurities, worry and stresses.”

How will this program be different from other training?

Accountability and live coaching. There is a huge gap with accountability in training. 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. That’s why LeadHERShip prioritizes accountability and hands-on engagement for every participant, including crucial post-program support.

Designed by women for women. We are leadership development experts for women. LeadHERShip isn’t a leadership program with a component about female leaders — it’s an entire curriculum designed to address the unique and nuanced challenges faced by today’s women in our workplaces.

“Before I joined LeadHERship , I was struggling to find balance in my life and had forgotten how to put myself back on the priority list.

I was feeling overwhelmed and not sure how to better my situation. While I was skeptical of how the program may benefit me, I owed it to myself to take the next step and have not regretted taking the leap. Harriette has helped me to recognize where I could introduce boundaries, schedule time for tasks and personal needs, and start to achieve more harmony in my day. In addition, I have had my eyes opened to my many achievements and successes, which is helping to build confidence in my abilities.
I joined LeadHERShip because of Harriette’s pledge to service women and help them succeed. Through the process, I have not only learned from Harriette, but also from the amazing breadth of knowledge and experience shared amongst other female participants in the program. Some of these are simple, common-sense approaches that women lose sight of when juggling so many daily roles and responsibilities. My life will always be a work in progress; however, I am confident that I have developed self-awareness toward becoming my best self.
Women that are struggling with seeking themselves, professionally or personally – or perhaps a combination of both, should give serious consideration to committing to the LeadHerShip program. Females often doubt their abilities, struggle with finding their voices, and own their power. Harriette can help break through the fog and bring forth clarity to aid in becoming the strong women we are meant to be.”
