Right now, the world needs confident, decisive, bold female leaders at all levels of business.

But, in times of turmoil, you can’t expect anyone to be passing out opportunities. Women need to create opportunities for themselves. We need to become resilient. We need to push past the self-doubt and the struggle and find a way to move forward.

Tell me, are you struggling to:


Find the energy, motivation and enthusiasm you need to propel your career forward?


Stop the cycle of overwhelm, perfectionism, self-doubt, and people-pleasing that is holding your career back?


Fully embody the identity of the ambitious, successful, transformative leader that you know you truly are?

Are you worried about:


Keeping your sanity in check so you can manage and motivate your remote team — most of which are feeling just as stressed out and anxious as you do?


Creating a vision of the future that actually makes you feel excited to go to work every day?


Showing up consistently as an authentic leader, and inspiring the people around you to be their best selves?

It’s time to focus on the future, learn how to deal with whatever challenges may come your way, and make the valuable contribution your team, family and the world needs.

They deserve it, but more importantly, so do you.

Meet Your Guide

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

For over 20 years, I’ve been leading 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 coach to guide you through these unpredictable and challenging times.

During the last recession, I lost my job while on maternity leave. And if that wasn’t challenging enough, this news came just after we found out that my husband was out of a job. We were two new parents with previously thriving careers unemployed and unsure how we’d survive.

Even though I had no clue how we’d make it, I knew I needed to make decisions fast and take back control of my life.

So I took a bet on myself and went all in on working for myself. I built a makeshift office in my laundry room and built a business while leading my family at the same time.

I know the fear, the worry, and the tears that come with serious career setbacks, but I can look back now and say that taking action when there were no clear paths and even more roadblocks was the best choice I ever made.

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.
