Who We Serve

Does any of this sound familiar (and frankly exhausting) to you?

  • Focusing only on the day-to-day rather than future effects—only putting out fires.

  • Measuring success & failure only by meeting numbers or metrics.

  • Overwhelmed by too many responsibilities.

  • Feeling ashamed, powerless, unmotivated, unqualified, and just plain stuck.

  • Confined by leadership methods that just don’t work for you anymore.

  • Tired of feeling you need to sacrifice either yourself OR your business to have success.


People come in many diverse and unique packages, and all can benefit from coaching throughout their careers. Even if you don’t think of yourself as a leader, you are one.  A leader is someone who interacts with and influences people—which if your life or work involves any other people, includes you. No matter what you do, you influence the people in your world in some way. With this awareness, it may be time for you to choose HOW you want to lead and consider the impact your legacy will leave on every single being you touch.

We serve Leaders who are ready to embrace a Next Level Vision of Leadership - not just going through the motions and DOING tasks but thriving in BEING their whole, empowered selves. Whether you are a current leader facing a major challenge, a new leader facing a transition, or a leader just stuck in determining your next steps, Focus Elite Coaching can help.

Why Choose Us?

Leadership is often not a linear path.  Leaders must be ready to shift and adapt through promotions, reorganization, new strategic directions, layoffs, and more.  Some of these transitions are planned, but some are not.  These changes may often feel like they are happening TO you, and it can be tough to feel like you have any choice in your life.  Without support, amazing individuals get frustrated, fail and leave.... or worse, fail and stay. And when a Leader is failing, their team and business suffer as well.

Focus Elite Coaching transforms your life and work, giving you back agency in your world, regardless of the changes happening around you.

Combining years of Executive Leadership experience with proven tools from the FOCUS™ and Energy Leadership™ suite of solutions, we serve our clients by designing programs to fit their needs and goals. This may be a single session or a long-term growth journey together as an individual, or it could look like Leadership Mastery workshops for your team. By learning to grow through a mastery mindset, you will continuously develop into BEING the most accomplished and healthy leader you can be.

Are you Ready to be a Next Level Leader? Together, we will

  • Redefine what success means and what your unique leadership path looks like

  • Reframe reactive thoughts to those of choose and empowerment in every situation.

  • Remove what is blocking your light so you can shine.


This journey doesn’t end with you.  In fact, it is only the beginning.



Take control over your energy - from negative to positive, from reactive to proactive, and from limiting to empowering.


Learn how to harness the “intangibles” that make the best leaders - confidence, decisiveness, peace and engagement.


Utilize your belief systems - about who you are and what you believe about the world - to unlock your true potential.

Along with our FOCUS suite of products, as an IPEC certified coach, Heather is proud to offer these solutions:

What We Believe & How We Do It

Our Mission

At Focus Performance Systems, we believe that coaching is an empowered & personalized alliance designed to unlock your potential.


We believe in honoring and serving you as a whole person which includes:

  • Who you are TODAY and who you will be TOMORROW, informed by who you have been

  • HOW you choose to show up in your career and life

  • WHAT it looks like for you to achieve your full potential


We believe that each person’s story is unique and deserves a personalized experience that is just as special as they are.

We believe that deep and long-lasting change starts with awareness. 

We believe in serving our clients through a combination of real-world experience and research-backed & proven tools and coaching methodologies. 

We believe that complete understanding of a person’s behavior requires the acknowledgement that they are a sum of many parts, particularly both their more permanent character traits as well as their temporary and fluid emotional states.


We believe in continuous improvement, learning, exploring, and evolving new ideas in fields that include and influence coaching theories, ideas and practices.

Our Process

 The coaching journey begins with helping you develop greater awareness of the following:

  • Priorities, strengths, traits, stressors, and motivators of ourselves and those around us.

  • Perceptions, mindsets and attitudes & how they impact our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

  • Agency gained when we align purpose and values with goals and action plans.

Our certified coaching methods utilize our

character trait-based Everything DiSC® toolkit and emotional state-based Core Energy Coaching 

toolkit to provide a holistic approach to unlocking your success. 

  • DiSC Assessments & Coaching helps clients recognize the priorities, motivators, and stress triggers that shape their workplace experience.


  • Core Energy Coaching and assessments helps clients consciously connect with their core thoughts and emotions, recognizing that true change starts from within.
