Hey there! 👋
I'm Heidi Lynne Kurter, a Global HR & Business Strategy Consultant
I help businesses and organizations strengthen their recruiting process, build and onboard powerful teams, create engaging employee experiences and develop leaders from within. I do this while teaching productivity hacks, time management techniques and establishing organizational skills to best serve you and your business.
Businesses often lack the clarity to understand what they need from their team causing them to hire people who aren't a right fit for the role and the culture.
This results in
➝ loss of productivity ➝ damaged reputation
➝ poor client results ➝ upset clients
➝ loss of clients ➝ decreased bottom line
... and so much more.
When done right, recruiting and onboarding create powerful, loyal and engaging employee experiences positively impacting all areas of business - yes, even your bottom line 😉
WHEN YOU INVEST IN YOUR EMPLOYEES, YOUR EMPLOYEES INVEST IN YOU
With me, you will have the personal support to create a happier workplace making you stand out against your competitors, attract and retain high performing employees, strengthen your brand and reputation, be proud of where you work and live the life you love.
Chances are, you're probably stressed, overwhelmed, and feeling stuck.
I get it. That's why I'm here to help.
To be an effective leader you have to take care of yourself first..
It all starts with you. Learning the skills, techniques and habits that make you successful.
When is the last time you invested in your development?
If you're struggling to answer - it's time to start now.
Think about it. You can hire the most top notch talent, but if you can't develop, manage and lead them then your business is going to stay stuck.
WHY HR, LEADERSHIP AND TEAM DEVELOPMENT
The combination of leadership, human resources and team development is crucial to developing an empowering and engaging employee experience.
Research by Deloitte found a startling 71% of millennials believe their leadership skills are not being fully developed. They plan on leaving in the next two years.
According to Gallup, poorly managed work teams are on average 50% less productive and 44% less profitable than well-managed teams.
75% of employees leave their jobs due to poor management
33% of employees said a lack of open, honest communication has the most negative impact on employee morale.
Forbes says 90% of leaders think an engagement strategy is important for business success, but only 25% of them have a strategy.
Companies with engaged employees have 2.5x higher revenues than companies with low engagement.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
As you can see by some of the statistics above, the lack of one creates a lack in another. When Human Resources fails to create recruiting and onboarding strategies aligned with the business, it impacts the people. When poor leadership is in charge it impacts the team. All of this impacts the engagement, momentum, and success of a business.
PEOPLE DO BUSINESS WITH PEOPLE THEY LIKE
If you're anything like me, you want quality attached to your name. Anything you put out there must reflect what you stand for and you want to stand behind it 110 percent.
I get it.
I grew up knowing exactly what my purpose was in life and I was very strategic with every step and opportunity I took so there was no doubt what I stood for. My very first "Take Your Child to Work Day" in elementary school, I fell in love with the business world and Human Resources. It was then I realized how crucial the happiness of people and teams were to creating success.
From there I chased after every opportunity to build teams, develop leaders, empower people and create genuinely happy experiences. From the 3rd grade line leader to president of Society of Human Resources (SHRM).
I knew from a young age that my superpower was transforming lives and empowering people to be the best versions of themselves.
I created a platform, won awards, gained global opportunities and met tons of people. After years in corporate, I made the decision to take the leap into starting my consulting business to spread my skills, expertise, passion and knowledge across all industries giving those who work with me a competitive advantage.
Working with me, you can be sure you have the commitment and dedication of someone who has spent their entire life perfecting their craft, changing lives and businesses and staying ahead of industry trends. As a connected millennial, I understand the needs and shift businesses need to make to stay relevant and on top.
What sets me apart from the rest is my experience spans across industries, countries, cultures and continents.
I've partnered with Babson College, B.Braun Medical, the South Korean Government, startups in Berlin, Germany, Hult International Business School, Radius Global Growth Experts (now Vistra) and so many more.
Let me help you. Employees aren't engaged by dull powerpoint presentations, lengthy lectures and monotonous "team building" exercises.
