Testimonials for Heather
The minute I met Heather Parks, I made a mental note that she was "a leader to watch". It was a hunch that proved to be spot on. So much so that as she went into private practice as a coach, I added her to my personal and professional board of directors. She is one of the short list of coaches I call when I need a coach! I've now had the pleasure of working with Heather in a corporate setting, and I often recommend her for executive coaching and leadership development engagements. Her competency as an HR leader, her fluency and knowledge as a coaching professional, her commitment to collaboration and her reputation as a trusted adviser are demonstrated at every level. I highly recommend Heather and am looking forward to partnering with her in the future.

I had the good fortunate to work with Heather Parks at Assurant. Heather led our Learning and Development function and quickly became a valuable resource to our organization. As we began to work more closely together, I noticed her genuine interest in me as a leader and her thoughtful approach to our conversations. Heather would ask me questions about my aspirations, goals and my passion for life. She had been listening to me carefully and was able to understand what I was saying regardless of how confusing or jumbled my thoughts may have been. Heather understood that I had lost my way in my professional journey and she was able to ask the questions that I did not want to ask or avoided asking myself.
Heather’s gentle and firm approach helped me clarify my thoughts and realize the importance of being present and living in the moment. Heather helped me surround myself with people that were good for me and eliminate relationships and task that were not good for me. Heather presented ideas and suggestions with care and compassion which enabled me to find the courage to deal with issues that were stopping me from reaching my potential. She helped me see life as full of possibilities rather than inevitabilities and reminded me to value myself without reservation!
Thank you Heather for helping me find my path and meaning again.

"Heather was my first experience with being coached, and what a great way to start! She really helped me to move forward in the direction of my goals, even as the fears and uncertainty would pop up. She helped me to go deep and discover the limiting beliefs that I had about myself or the world that were getting in the way of my dreams. She knew just the right question at just the right time to call forward what was getting in the way. My confidence and courage grew exponentially during the time that I worked with Heather and I have continued strongly on my path to create the business that I know I was put here to do.

“We tend to inherently build these walls that block our full potential. Heather motivates you to realize that the walls are not there and helps you see your options! I would highly recommend her if you’re looking for someone who will challenge the way you think and take you to the next level!!”
Chris D. – Financial Services
"I've known Heather for over a decade and always considered her to be someone that I can rely upon. She is one of a select few who I trust when seeking feedback. Heather consistently demonstrates a balanced, valued perspective no matter the situation. Her advice is "on target" and meaningful. I've personally witnessed how deeply Heather cares about others and their success. She has the ability to uncover valuable insights that resonate throughout life, and her drive & enthusiasm are infectious. Heather can and will help her clients grow as individuals, develop as a professional, and reignite their passions."
T.J. L. - Marketing
It has been my distinct pleasure to know and have worked with Heather over the past few years. Heather has been very influential in my career thus far, and I’ve always considered her my “career advisor”. Without Heather, I wouldn’t have the insight of upper level management, personal confidence or business savvy that I have today. She’s been a sounding board when I needed career-advice and direction. I highly recommend connecting with Heather if you’re looking for “that edge” in taking your career to the “next level”.

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.
