Heather Parks is the founder of New Dimensions Coaching, a professional leadership development coaching firm. Her primary mission is to enable leaders with the mindset and skill to engage, thrive and drive positive business outcomes.

As a seasoned career & leadership development coach, Heather Parks helps senior leaders and their management teams attain practical, sustainable results while deepening their self-awareness and building healthy, thriving work relationships.

Heather brings warmth and humor to the mission critical work of developing leaders and their organizations.  Her straight-forward, results-oriented approach is based on extensive experience applying best practices in leadership theory, concepts and assessments to the real situations and behaviors that arise in a business setting.  She uses deep listening skills to hear what’s being said by a leader, but also the important skill of what’s not being said to understand business environments and clients’ real-time situations.  Her clients describe her as gently assertive, pragmatic and innovative with an ability to offer necessary feedback in such a way that the client can hear, trust, accept and embrace it.

Heather uses a practical model to help leaders get real and get results.  She guides leaders through a 3-step process:

  • Step 1: Learn = gain clarity of business expectations and personal development goals
  • Step 2: Act = create short-term and long-term plans of action, and
  • Step 3: Share = develop collaborative networks to ensure growth & sustainable results

For years, Heather watched talented individuals lose their unique perspectives and burn themselves out trying to follow a path that was not theirs to follow. For some leaders, it was desperately trying to meet the expectations of a corporate environment, but they never quite felt connected, in sync or engaged. For other leaders, they move through their career wondering if there is a bigger purpose and just wanting a little bit of guidance on how to show up differently.

If this resonates with you, you are not alone. In fact most, if not all, leaders have been there at one point or another.  Heather has coached many leaders who struggled from time to time with something they would like to do or see differently. Don’t settle for one more minute.

Let Heather help you see the new dimensions that are possible.  Learn how things can be different, just by shifting the way you choose to view the world around you. You have the opportunity every single moment to increase your engagement and success by tapping into your own potential and putting it into action.

Are you ready?

It's About the Journey

When we set a goal, we often become so focused on the outcome that we lose sight of what is actually important: the journey.

Life is about living in the moment, but when we are preoccupied with winning versus losing, and completely focused on simply crossing the finish-line of achieving our goals, it is easy to forget that.
