Senior Manager, Bell Media
“Before I joined the LeadHERship group coaching program, I was struggling to find balance in my life and had forgotten how to put me back on the priority list; in essence 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 towards 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 owning 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.”

Meet the LeadHERShip program guide…

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

For over 20 years, I’ve led business and leadership transformations for a global clientele. My work with Fortune 500 leaders and my hosting of thousands of fierce conversations enable 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 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 the talented women in your organization.

Who’s a good fit for LeadHERShip?

LeadHERShip is right for women who…

  • Want to advance their career and become more effective leaders
  • Are prepared to put in the work to achieve their goals
  • Want to be challenged, not just inspired
  • Are committed to growth and no longer want to stay stagnant
  • Thrive with tried and tested systems and strategies to move them forward

LeadHERShip is not for women who…

  • Have no leadership experience. This is an advanced leadership development program for women with at least 3 years of leadership experience.
  • Are looking for a silver bullet. Transformation takes time, but it’s worth it.
  • Just want a cheerleader. This program is for women who want a coach who will be direct and tell them where their blind spots are and how to overcome them.
  • Aren’t sure they have the time or interest to work toward their goals right now.
“LeadHERship is seriously a game-changer. It will transform your mindset and give you the tools to make changes and propel yourself forward.”
Beth Grady
Construction Manager, Bruno Builders

Frequently Asked Questions

Who will run this program?

This program will be facilitated by Harriette Schumacher, Certified Executive Coach, and Women’s Leadership Development Expert.

During my 15-year high-level corporate career, I participated in the development of thousands of leaders, designed and delivered a global curriculum for numerous national and international companies, and managed multi-million dollar training budgets. Through this experience, plus my training and experience as a certified executive coach, I have faced and overcome the exact types of challenges the women at your organization are 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 the talented women in your organization.

How will this be different from other leadership training courses?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

What’s the refund policy?

Since we work with a small group of women at a time, we are unable to offer refunds once payment has been made.

If someone is unable to attend the cohort they have made registration for, we are happy to reallocate their registration to our next available start date.

Unleash the leadership potential of the talented women in your organization.
