Philosophy Anchor

At NHT Consulting, we are dedicated to ensuring that leaders and organizations thrive, not simply survive the day-to-day.  In our work with individual leaders, we provide transformative coaching that focuses on the entire person.  We believe that when a leader grows from the inside out, the results powerfully reverberate across their lives, teams, organizations, sectors, and movements.  We support you in identifying and/or clarifying professional and personal goals.  We then walk along side you as you implement practices and concrete plans to achieve those goals.


In our work with teams and organizations, we start by deeply listening to your needs, challenges, dreams, and ideas.  We then work with you to identify and refine short and long term goals and understand your unique strengths and opportunities.  Finally, we partner with you to create concrete strategies to reach those goals and operate at peak performance.
