Finding the best trainer, consultant or coach, therefore, takes a close look at the credentials and experience an individual and company you’re employing possesses. What sets them apart from others in the same field? Are they qualified? Don’t trust your company, career or staff to someone who just hung out a shingle or who is playing at being a “coach.” Trust proven, seasoned professionals.

What we stand for
Our company vision is to utilize our extensive experience in the business and career worlds, along with our proven counseling backgrounds, to assist our clients in creating success for themselves and their families.
Our values recognize that success is defined in many ways. For some it is “finding the song they were meant to sing.” For others it is making an idea reality through a business venture. For some, it is seeing a work team become optimally productive. For yet others it is the creation of personal wealth and financial security, insofar as that is possible in an uncertain world.
Whatever your personal and professional goals, we want to help you reach them.
We realize that your career and business journey is one that encompasses every element of your life. We therefore work with you to optimize your business skills, but also work with your personal spirituality, your mental game and your family values. We help you to overcome those obstacles which hold everyone back from time to time so that you are able to achieve optimal success in your life.
Our company is deliberately small and we decided some time ago to work with a very select group of people whose dedication and values made them leaders in their fields. We believe in a close and highly accessible relationship with our clients. We make ourselves very available to serve your needs.
Many of our alumni (people who have completed our transition program) and our business clients have gone on to become valued friends. This is because we work intensively with each person we accept into our practice, and with their families. This is much more than a job for us. It is our passion – our “baby.” John and Nicole Heckers have, together, created a unique and personal service. We will always keep it that way. You are never a number to us…never “a fee.”
If you speak with our current clients and alumni of our program, you will hear that what is different about us is that we “take it personally.” We are personally and intensely invested in your success and growth. Read More…
Heckers Development Group, LTD is very competitive in pricing.
Those who are receiving Executive Coaching often are successful in having their fee wholly or partially paid or reimbursed by their companies. We provide a letter and in-depth information to your HR Department to help you obtain reimbursement. Read more…
