About Dr. Heather Sansom
A Little About my Experience and Education: I have been a business and non profit management professional with national responsibility, entrepreneur and sport coach. I've been an international corporate sales trainer, directed national sport program change, driven business & program growth, pulled stakeholder teams together across the country, written and influenced policy, improved business processes, increased funding. I've worked in three of Canada's major cities, and started a small business in a small town.
I've been a competitive athlete and a conditioning trainer for Olympic and world athletes. I'm an international public speaker and author. I've been coaching people for just over 8 years, with years of corporate performance coaching and training before that. I am privileged to have completed a PhD in resilience and life skill development through sport and recreation in nature (The 4-H Resilience Research Study).
The Path is Rarely Straightforward: It hasn't always been a steady uphill path. I've been through downsizing, company reorganizations and needing to re-adapt and re-direct my career entirely several times.
I've also been through some tough personal times and know what it's like to overcome adversity, take on challenges bigger than you are and succeed through planning and teamwork, in the workplace and in the health and sport.
I know what it's like to feel like you are standing at a crossroads, or the edge of the next step up. I've been able to negotiate the changes and challenges, keep learning, growing and being productive in my work and personal life, doing work that has meaning and makes a difference.
A better life is not just for those amazing people out there: it's for you.
The experiences mean I have the street-cred to understand because I have been there. The training means that I have the knowledge behind me to help you. Like you, I am always growing and learning forward.
I am passionate about helping people be healthier, meaningfully productive, dream big and move forward.
Coaching Package Options
Packages for Life & Wellbeing Coaching
Packages include weekly or biweekly personal contact (in person, or by Skype or phone for 30-60 minutes depending on the arrangement) and email/online support.
Success is strongly related to accountability and a clear plan, so regular contact is important.
A minimum initial one month package is recommended since it takes 21 days to form new habits. For more significant transformation and progress, 3-6 months is recommended.
