What I loved most about my time in the corporate world was helping others succeed, so I founded Heather Stark Coaching to do this full time. I offer Executive Coaching and Leadership Development to help people unlock their maximum potential, break through road blocks, and achieve personal and professional goals. I believe in taking a transformational approach that gets below the surface using active listening, techniques that get to the core of decision making, and vision work to help define a vision and reach goals. The aim is for individuals to be refocussed and reenergized to meet accelerating change and challenges and result in stronger teams that are more agile and work together more effectively.
Heather works with executives and entrepreneurs to navigate professional and personal transitions. She helps clients set a vision, develop a strategy to achieve it, and works with them to intentionally move forward to reach their goals while maximizing their personal and professional potential. In addition, she helps leaders develop and implement strategies to lead through change and is an experienced facilitator of innovation and strategy workshops. Heather also speaks and leads workshops on the pressures facing leaders and the challenge of trying to balance the competing demands on time and energy.
Prior to establishing her coaching business Heather spent over 20 years building a successful career in the corporate world. During her time with a change management consulting firm Heather worked with senior leaders in a variety of sectors to help them understand and improve their organizational culture, increasing individual and organizational success. She has significant experience working for Fortune 500 companies, building strong teams and achieving exceptional results. Heather has coached, managed, developed and mentored many individuals, helping them to succeed.
Heather received a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Manitoba. Heather is a Certified Professional Coach with The World Coach Institute and a member of the International Coaches Federation.
In her spare time Heather can be found in hockey arenas cheering for one of her 3 boys.
