Over the years, I've been inspired, enlightened and challenged by many mentors, guides and coaches. I am honored to have the opportunity to share my experience and wisdom with you. I'll tell you a secret, though, and hope this will encourage you to take the next step on your journey...
I wasn't always the bold and brave person you see pictured here. It took me many years to "find my voice" and become my own advocate. Like many women, I wasn't born with the skills I would need to take care of myself growing up. They weren't taught to us in school. And, as I've learned, no one will take better care of you than you.
As an introvert, I was rarely the first to speak up and the topic had often changed before I'd formulated an answer. On the other hand, my inner critic drove me to do better and I wanted to "know ALL the things," which made me a very good listener and an avid reader.
As a lifelong learner and naturally curious person, I've always asked, "Why?"
These traits were essential in my career (as a scientist, educator, project manager, quality manager and change agent, to name just a few roles). They were also vital in life.
Whether I was pondering the motivations of a colleague, discussing the doctrine of religion, or discerning my own desires and resistance, curiosity is an amazing tool.
By getting curious, and being open to exploration in safe settings, we can shift and broaden our perspectives in ways we never expected.
These days, I'm more interested in HOW we are in the world, rather than WHAT we do. Are we living with integrity and able to be authentic? Are we open to joy and generous with kindness? These are the things I want to see in the world.
It is my greatest hope that I will show up every day with sensitivity, curiosity and discernment. I don't always get it right. In fact, sometimes I fail miserably, but I always learn something valuable. And I don't have all the answers. What I do have is a great capacity for embracing the questions, looking at all the angles, and connecting the dots. So it won't surprise you to learn, I'm often told that I'm a really great listener.
I look forward to hearing your story, holding a safe space for you to get curious, and walking with you during your journey.

“Heather Hall has a natural gift for coaching and a magical way of supporting me right where I am, seeing the good in me and helping me see that good.
