Birgit is great to work with. She landed commitment management with our team. We learned about creating agreements ,hold people accountable, make powerful requests in supporting us to work together in achieving our benchmarks and effective communication as a team

( Managing Partner - Food Exchange, Catering and Events )

My organization hired Birgit to help me enhance my leadership skills and if it wasn’t for her coaching, I would have given up. Instead I led a team who took our program from a 500K budget to a multi-million dollar venture that is now duplicated nationally.

( Leader, Non-profit (former role) )

Birgit and her company, Heads-Up Performance, Inc, represents the the one of the top five best decisions I made as the President of a company. Her coaching resulted in reduced friction with senior staff, which made us much more productive and conservatively speaking made us at least $400K fall to the bottom-line.

Through months of coaching Birgit helped me create processes to maneuver through obstacles, opened my eyes on how to be a compelling leader, showed me how to have dialogue through difficult conversations and gave me tools and support through work life/family life hurdles. I couldn't think more highly of her and her talents.
