business psychologist and executive coach
Heather Uczynski, owner and operator of Leading Edge Business Consulting, has been working as a business psychologist and executive coach for the past 10 years. She has assisted many people in making a successful transition to management, as well as coaching those who have needed to take their people skills to the next level by developing executive presence.
Heather has developed a specialty in the field of emotional intelligence. She believes passionately in the importance of ensuring employees are in the right positions, then treating them well, and rewarding them for good performance. It is well known that employees don’t leave bad jobs, they leave bad managers. The abilities that distinguish outstanding supervisors are not industry-based, but rather skills that relate to handling people.
Another of Heather’s services is hiring consultation. She uses an online assessment to help organizations make sure they are hiring and promoting the right people. So often, employees are promoted to management without any thought to how well they interact with others – resulting in lower productivity and profitability for the organization. Heather also helps companies to resolve workplace conflicts that threaten to undermine productivity.
Heather also enjoys training on various employee-related topics, as well as speaking engagements. She is known for her energetic, interactive style, and for infusing humor into her presentations.
