About Lara Heacock

Too many companies in corporate America are in crisis; stuck in unhelpful and ineffective structures that drive a culture of empty competition, mistrust, and poor communication.

The culture within our corporations seems to reflect the deepening divide going on in the world at large – whether it be in society, politics, or the generations – dialogue is being replaced by disconnect. Add in technology, geographically dispersed teams, and culture clashes, and it’s easy to believe that work would be so much easier if it wasn’t for other people!

My work is rooted in the belief that the answer to this disconnect isn’t found in another app or more conference calls, but in kindness, dialogue, and a smarter (not to mention more human) approach to hiring and leadership.

I bring 20 years of working in corporations across the country, including a billion dollar public company where I oversaw a $2.5MM program.

I have over a decade of experience in Talent Acquisition and leadership, have managed geographically dispersed teams, and mentored and coached associates in the US and abroad.

I’m an MBA, ICF credentialed coach (PCC), award-winning writer, Huffington Post author, Editor in Chief of popular personal development blog Kind Over Matter, and in-demand speaker. My pronouns are she/hers.

I’m also obsessed with how we change the culture of corporate America from one that’s stuck in an adversarial and bureaucratic communication style to one that’s rooted in kindness as a tool for change.

Lara has been the most helpful resource for me throughout this year. It has been so awesome working with her. She's been a big source of support and has helped me get through some really dark moments as well. Throughout my job search, it's been great knowing that I have her on my team. Friends and family support you but no one wants to hear every win and loss or help you strategize. She's been a constant source of confirmation and reminders to believe in myself and what I'm feeling/doing.

Lara was really helpful! During our short conversation she was able to guide and provide me with tools that helped me figure out what it is I really want to do with my career as I am at a transition point. Thank you for listening to me ramble and for helping make sense of it all!

Lara was very nice and had prepared well for our session by reviewing the job description, company website, and Glassdoor. I appreciated her tailored questions and advice after each question I answered. I got increasingly anxious as we talked (my interview anxiety - nothing related to Lara), and she was great to check in with me and remind me to breath, readjust my posture, notice where I was holding the tension in my body, etc. She also reminded me to have fun leading up to the interview in addition to interview prep. Thanks Lara!

This was my first call with Lara and I couldn't have asked for more. We covered so much in 30 minutes and she gave me amazing tips and tricks for the three interviews I have coming up. I went into my first interview with a great attitude and more confidence than I've had in awhile. I can't wait to speak to her again, hopefully with good news! Thank you Lara!!
