Do you want more confidence and clarity in your life or career? I'd love to work with you!

In my own life, I’ve walked the path of many of the things I coach women through today:

As a coach certified in EQ-i and EQ-i 360 (Emotional Intelligence), I also love helping women improve their self-perception, self-expression, stress management, decision making and interpersonal relationships so they can have the greatest positive impact. 

My process for each woman I work with begins with a simple conversation, no pressure. My priority is understanding your needs, what problems you would like to solve and how I might be able to help you. Don’t hesitate to reach out and set up time to chat! 

coaching helps you go farther, faster

You are here for a reason, you bring a unique value to all you do, and there is a distinct purpose for your life. Your talent holds power. How are you using it? I'll work with you to explore how you can have the greatest positive impact, and find the most meaning.
Before you can figure out your purpose and be happy (and by the way, you can live your purpose out in different ways in different seasons of your life), you need to know YOU. I can help.
When you take time to discover more about who you are--your values, passions, strengths, skills and shaping experiences--it informs your direction, and your actions. It influences how you communicate who you are. It builds your confidence. And it points you to your sweet spot: the areas you'll bring the most contribution and find the most meaning. I come alongside you and guide you through this process of self-discovery.
I help you become your best self and reach your dreams by coaching you through the process of identifying and overcoming fears and roadblocks that may be holding you back, as well as helping you set meaningful and achievable goals and actions.

NOT SURE COACHING FITS YOUR BUDGET OR SCHEDULE?

I've created an online course to take you through the same self-discovery process I coach women through one-on-one. Watch the welcome video below!

"Genny is absolutely amazing to work with! She is extremely helpful, relatable, kind and understanding. When I began working with Genny, I was not confident in who I was or where my life journey would take me. She helped me immensely with identifying my strengths, values, and overall confidence in who I am. This guidance really helped me look at my life differently and really embrace who I am rather than comparing myself to everyone around me. Genny and her coaching services are a valuable resource no matter the stage in life you are at. Thank you Genny for your enthusiasm for life and wanting to help those around you." -Emily Piery, Account Management, Events, Wisconsin

"Genny’s service was invaluable to me as a young millennial professional hoping to find clarity in a new chapter of life. I began working with Genny eight months into a new career I was struggling to embrace. Her guidance was an essential piece in my discovery of personal and unique compass points to use when making decisions in life, career, and creative projects. Her process facilitates self-discovery and growth-minded reflection, along with the exploration of values and passion. No matter where you are in life, at the beginning of a career and wondering where to go or decades in and needing to create a new path, the support and clarity provided through Genny and her coaching process will prove to be an indispensable resource." -Molly Falk-Steinmetz, Masters of Science, Educational Program Coordinator, Wisconsin

"A recent partnership with Genny resulted in a very successful Women's Skill Builders Series for more than 800 participants over the course of three weeks. The series covered topics of mentors, sponsors, and personal branding and were highly sought-after by employees. Genny brought her expertise and heart-warming anecdotes which left our audiences with a sense of empowerment to own their careers. She's incredibly easy to engage for planning and execution, she keeps it real, and she's able to draw people in and establish a connection very quickly. She also met us where we needed her most – on video conference – which enabled us to scale to hundreds of dispersed employees and maintain a high level of engagement through a virtual format. 'The sessions were truly Do Not Disturb Worthy!' one of our participants commented - I couldn't agree more! Thanks for an awesome series, Genny!"

The Her Team Success Personal Branding Toolbox is one of the best resources I’ve experienced and Genny’s zest for encouraging people to find their purpose and thrive has positively impacted my life. I highly recommend Genny and Her Team Success to anyone seeking an AMAZING coach." -Valerie L. Davis, Former V.P., Corporate Culture, Labor and Human Resources, major grocery chain

"I had the privilege of working on personal branding with Genny and it has been transformational for me.  I started working with Genny during a time where I realized I had lost my way.  I wholeheartedly devoted myself to family and raising kids, which has been rewarding in many ways—I just forgot about me during that season, unintentionally.  Years later, I looked up and asked myself questions like “Now what?” and “Who the heck am I?”  Genny helped pull out the core values and strengths that make me who I am and make me feel alive.  She has been an insightful guide who has helped reconnect me with my passions so I can live with purpose and fulfillment as Jackie.  I feel excited about the future and less scared.  I am walking away with tools to help me along the way of this new adventure.  Genny is very gifted at what she does. Not only is she brilliant, she genuinely cares about each individual and loves what she does.  Just talk to her for 2 minutes, you’ll fall in love with her and feel inspired."

"Working with Genny was one of the most empowering steps I've taken. I was at a crossroads in my career as well as personal life, and decided I needed to make a change. I did some research on life coaches and career counselors, and found Her Team Success. I was immediately drawn to the fact that it focuses on giving women a sense of power and control into their own hands, and utilizes strategies and tools specific to each woman. During my time working with Genny I actually landed my dream job, and I finally had the confidence to accept it and make a huge move. I cannot recommend Her Team Success enough. The experience changed my career, and my entire life. Thank you Genny!" -Madeline, Executive Producer at KFBK Radio in Sacramento, California

We brought her in to speak to our team at Peppershock Media, and she presented and shared her expertise and experiences in the area of personal branding.

"Genny draws from her expertise in business to deliver high-quality coaching. When I hired her, I was extremely burned out and really needed to find my inspiration and passion again relating to my career and make a change in the way I delivered my services. All of the work I did with her gave me the focus I needed to be more successful and energetic;  I was able to define my values, discover and tap into my passions, and create a professional mission statement that I could truly be proud of.  Genny is professional, prepared and compassionate. Since I hired her, I have doubled my income, attracted more business coaching clients and have felt better and more encouraged about the next phase of my career. She is amazing."

"Genny was so kind, patient, and supportive throughout our career coaching sessions. I felt lost and confused when we began the process but by the end, I felt more clear than I have been in a long time! I highly recommend working with Genny if you are going through a transition, at a crossroads, or just want to feel more confident about your path in life. I really looked forward to our sessions and felt that I had accomplished a lot in the relatively short amount of time we worked together. I went from zero job offers (and I was applying to many places) to two (and possibly more to come!).  I am so thankful that I discovered Her Team Success ~ Thank you, Genny!"

"Genny is the sweetest, most genuine person we've ever met and worked with! Who you see is who she truly is. We needed some guidance and coaching to get our business dream going. We knew what we wanted, but did not know where to start. Genny has a unique way of bringing out the best version of yourself and your story behind your brand, without you even realizing it. We didn't just get a coach, we got a lifetime friend that inspires, encourages, and empowers us! Thank you Genny!"

Presenting to our group can be a daunting challenge for some, but Genny was extraordinarily well-prepared with an approach tailored to our veterans, and even more so, to their goals and objectives. We place a high priority on providing value-added content for our Warriors, and Genny’s presentation on personal branding was insightful and relevant to everyone in the room, staff included!"

"I saw Genny speak at a Women and Leadership Conference at Boise State University and at a Woman's Impact Network event at Hewlett Packard in 2018. She's very knowledgeable and authentic, and incorporates her personal stories throughout her content, which is really nice. Personal Branding is so relevant in all situations and her teachings made it clear about how important it is for each of us to focus on managing and strengthening this for ourselves--and just how easily it can be done. Thank you so much Genny! I still have so much to learn from you. Until next time!"

"Genny was my anchor to my floating thoughts and ideas. She helped me find grounding and discover the link between my passions, values, skills and strengths to discover a role that pretty perfectly encompasses my various career skill sets. Over the last 12 years, I focused on two directions and wasn't sure how to combine those into one role. Throughout our four phone sessions, she provided encouragement and tools that guided me along to discover a role that already exists and is actually needed in my industry right now. Days after our last session, I started a conversation with a new potential client about him needing a person with my same skill sets. Now that I know how to shape my experience into this broader role, I am able to clearly see and communicate my value to a client and feel confident asking for a pay rate that reflects that. I chose Genny because of her focus on women's empowerment. I felt lost and scattered, trying to make some shifts in my life, and Genny's coaching sessions were a launching point for me to start making the shifts I want. I'm a Genny fan!"

Genny Heikka Her Team Success Testimonial Texas Roadhouse
"If you are looking for a speaker that can instantly connect with your audience while delivering incredibly valuable content, look no further. Genny brings a vast amount of knowledge and experience to every event. What’s more, she delivers her message through genuine and significant personal stories and examples. It’s not often that you can find a presenter that is able to share such incredible insights in such a humble and relatable way. Genny is a delight to work with before, during and after her appearances. Her down to earth presence instantly puts the audience at ease. We were fortunate enough to have her attend and speak at our recent “Women’s Leadership Summit.” Both her energy and message have been highly praised by all who attended. You know it’s a WIN when the only time you see attendees on their cell phones is to take a picture of the presenter in front of them!"
