“I highly recommend Big Leap as a professional / executive coach. My coach helped me identify my goals and sources of my challenges at work. Everyone has the answers to even their toughest issues; she has helped me self-explore and develop my own plans to address even the most difficult situations. Her coaching has been extremely empowering. The growth that I have seen in myself as a manager through our coaching time has been awesome.”Ruthann
“Big Leap are excellent trainers who are adept at connecting with their audience, and taking them through the learning journey. They facilitated a two-day Fierce Conversation workshop with our group, in which many Ah-Hah” moments were generated. The learning and transformation amongst the participants was very evident at the end of day two, thanks to Harriette’s ability to help participants relate the material and the skills learned to both their professional and personal lives.”Lena

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 best strategy for the group.

“ 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 hear of any matter, and she’s and 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 – shes the friend you can always count on to be honest with you, because she truly care and wants to the best for you. The short version? You want Harriette in your corner.”Cameron
“Harriette is a trusting, respected leader with a huge value to offer, mentors and coaches are often underused by leaders who struggle to ask for help, these are the ones who likely need it the most.”

Harriette is a trusted advisor to the Senior Leadership Team at Farmers Dairy and to me personally. She has worked with us to strengthen our individual and team leadership skills, and to improve our effectiveness as a team. She’s a very perceptive observer, listener, and interpreter of the dynamics, which impact our effectiveness as leaders and as a team. She’s comfortable working with and providing candid and constructive feedback to our Senior Leaders, which has made her a trusted coach. I personally value her insights and candor in offering coaching and feedback, which has helped me to become a more effective leader at Farmers Dairy.Derek
