Meet Our Founder

An accomplished leader, Heather Haygood has held many top-level positions, most recently as Dean of Academic Affairs, Executive Director, and Director of Compliance and Regulatory Affairs. At HMH, she leverages her vast experience and knowledge to help others navigate the challenges all leaders inevitably face.  

As a young leader, Heather received feedback from a direct report: "You instill confidence in your employees." At this moment, as the supervisor of Harvard graduates and people with 15+ years more work experience, it became clear that leadership doesn't come down to age, credentials, or title. Leadership is about empowerment. 

Leaders can either instill confidence or destroy it—far too often, it’s the latter. As a result, Heather is passionate about cultivating leaders who can create the organizational shifts necessary to provide foundations of trust, authenticity, and empowerment for themselves, their organizations, and the people they lead.  

Aside from her corporate experience, Heather has a natural ability to connect with others authentically. She also enjoys being in the classroom and partners with Boise State University's Professional and Continuing Education Department to teach "The Emotionally Intelligent Leader," a custom-built course by HMH Solutions. 

As a lifelong learner, she has also invested in training and certifications to grow her toolkit and ensure maximum impact when working with leaders and teams. 

  Her credentials include:

  • Masters in Business Administration
  • Certified Executive Coach
  • Prosci Certified Change Management Practitioner
  • Genos International Certified Practitioner
  • Center for Creative Leadership Practitioner
  • International Coaching Federation Member
