“I highly recommend Big Leap as a professional, executive coaching firm. Harriette 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.”

They facilitated a Fierce Conversation workshop with our group, in which many “Ah-Ha” moments were generated thanks to Harriette’s ability to help participants relate both the material and the skills we learned to our professional and personal lives.”
