What Clients Are Saying

Whitney Meissner, EdD on FlanaganLeadership.com
“Most elite professionals have a commitment to excellence, and to continual growth and improvement. Look at successful and happy adults, and it is likely they have a team working with them, coaches and advisers to help them grow and excel.

Working with Heather Flanagan has been one of the best decisions of my life. Her extended coaching sessions provide the time to delve deeper into issues needing development, while the turbo coaching sessions are an energy-charged, fast-paced reflection that both ground and inspire me.

Heather has helped me work through some profound grief, and now I have the opportunity to work with her at a time when I feel healthy and happy. No matter what stage of career, life, or transition, Heather will skillfully guide you to a greater version of you!”

“If you are like me, and suffer from putting off important projects and difficult conversations, then you need to work with Heather Flanagan. Because of my work with Heather, I now follow simple steps that get me to begin projects and keep them on track. These very same steps work to prepare me for, and have, difficult conversations.

If you’re asking, as I did, ‘What if I procrastinate doing the first steps?’ This was not a problem for me. There are two reasons for this. First, the initial steps are very simple and easy to do. It is very motivating knowing that these simple and easy steps will lead to the goal I am seeking. Second, Heather’s skills and engaging personality make it fun to work with her. Enjoying working with Heather transfers to using her program!

Give Heather a call. Don’t procrastinate talking with her, and you’ll find your procrastination wilting away.”

“You can trust Heather Flanagan to give you a new, empowering perspective on your own personal puzzles, and what’s more she’ll give you actionable next steps that produce tangible results.

I showed up to our first session feeling boxed in, with a tangle of ideas about the next phase of my career. I had no clear sense of how to synthesize those ideas into a coherent whole. I met with Heather for several coaching sessions, and in that time I gained clarity, peace of mind, and a solid sense of the next steps I will take.

Heather has a focused, authentic, playful way of listening that fostered a sense of agency in me. Her observations and insights found strengths in things I was seeing as negative; she identified value in traits and skills that I had discounted long ago, or had never even recognized. Using a semi-structured discussion format, Heather applied her down-to-earth approach to draw out information and ideas I hadn’t realized were important to my discernment process.

Now I know what my next steps are, and I’m confident that I’m headed in the right direction. The insights and direction I gained are so worth the price of admission! Thank you, Heather!”

“I have found Heather’s coaching strategies invaluable during my recent career search. By working with Heather, I have come to discover and enhance certain leadership skills that I had previously undervalued in myself.

By gaining confidence in these areas through Heather’s positive coaching structure and techniques, I have been successful in identifying roles that are better suited to my personal goals and strengths.

Heather is incredibly intuitive, and has a gift in understanding her client’s goals then goes further to interpret and unlock those innate qualities to help us achieve our objectives. My expectations were exceeded when working with Heather and I am delighted to see how much immediate benefit I received from her professional coaching services.

Not only am I a better candidate because of her coaching, I now have a clearer vision for success which guides and sustains me.”

Britt Reber from GrowingYourTraffic.com
“Working with Heather has been a dream!

Having a coach or mentor is crucial to succeeding at anything, and growing a business is definitely no exception. On my hunt for someone who could help me take my company to the next level, I fired 4 other coaches before finding (and keeping!) Heather.

She's patient, understanding, and compassionate, but also a no-nonsense straight shooter who will tell you what you need to hear in order to experience a breakthrough.

Heather has helped me double my prices while decreasing the amount of overwhelm and procrastination in my business and in my life. My profits have increased since working with her, but what's more is that I now feel calm and in control when working on my business.

If you're looking for an experienced coach who can help you become a better leader and take your company or career to the next level, call Heather right now!”

“Learning Heather's Five Simple Secrets a year ago shifted my perspective so that I could see the fulfillment in my life that was already there, and it gave me the tools to keep it going. Plus, I had a great time in the class itself: Heather's style is delightfully entertaining, and the stories and feelings shared by all the participants were truly touching. I am a better person, for myself and for everyone around me, for having taken this class. I can't recommend it enough!”

“With Heather as my coach, I’ve developed clarity and conviction about my direction in life, discovered more fun and fulfillment in my work, and learned important insights into who I am and how I relate to others. Drawing from diverse sources of knowledge and skill, Heather tailors her coaching to match my individual needs and goals. Through humor, listening, questioning, observing, checking facts and assumptions and more, we figure stuff out and make it better. Plus, she makes a great latte.”

My Philosophy

Everything I do with my work and within my relationships centers around a core belief in the inherent potential and worth of all individuals. Further, I believe that change is not only possible but urgently needed. 

We can create a major shift in our culture by each of us taking many small steps to live a more honest and empowered life. How else? No one is going to do it for us. No political party is going to legislate the world into becoming what you wish to see. 

It has become painfully obvious that it is up to individuals within families, communities, organizations, and corporations to live and lead with greater intention and fierce commitment to core values.

I see people experiencing anger, frustration, and hopelessness about the condition of the world today. It can feel like we’ve taken a huge step back with no one to lead the way forward. But this is not the time to throw up our hands in defeat. There has never been a more critical time to show up bigger and better than ever before! 

Show up for yourself and for every soul you touch! Show up for those whom you lead for they are looking to you for inspiration. Show up for those whose voices are muffled from years of subtle and blatant injustice. Show up for the generations to come who will thrive in a global culture where the intention to deepen understanding is at the center of every relationship, whether it be in the corporate world, between neighbors, or within a family.

Infinite small steps hold the key to unlocking the welcoming and wise world we want to see! I am fully committed to being at cause for our creating a healthy and just global community. Our first step is to open ourselves up to possibilities. From there, the pathway consists of several small and purposeful steps in alignment with our inner truth. 

What possibilities do you want to open up to?

My Approach

My approach is thoroughly client led and engages two primary realms. 

First, we look at tactical, tangible goals and strategies to get there. We use observable, measurable evidence to track progress, and you decide what measures hold meaning. I help to hold you accountable to yourself with lightheartedness, validation, and clarity.

While the first realm addresses your “doings”, the second realm illuminates your ways of “being.” We look at your patterns of belief, core values, stuck places, and areas of strength. The goal of this work is to bring a higher level of consciousness and presence to your inner working such that you can be at greater choice with you thinking. That which is unconscious within us runs automatically, for better or worse. 

When we become aware of our thoughts, feelings, habits, and beliefs, we can make purposeful choices and create new outcomes. We also gain a new perspective as we encounter new experiences of ourselves in the world. This is how you come to love and trust yourself more deeply. And your new ways of “being” bring greater power to your “doings” and greater peace, joy, and balance to your life.

Typically, my clients uncover obstacles, take risks, have new experiences of themselves, and feel freed up to reach new levels in work and life. This may look like modulating time consuming (aka “bad”) habits. Or a client might find that they are ready to take a risk and start something beyond their previous self-assessment of capacity. 

Whatever my clients bring to the table, we look together behind the walls and around the corners for gifts and opportunities and forge new possibilities. 

I am devoted to you experiencing sustainable and amazing results in the direction of your passion and valuableness.
