Hello Life and Game Changers!
I lived your life. I struggled with where I was headed, how to get there, how to battle my fears and oh geez, how do I make what I am passionate about the focal point of my life.
My name is Kim Harty and I work with individuals, solopreneurs and organizations guiding them to meet their mission through strategic planning. I so passionately believe in the idea of knowing oneself, analayzing all aspects of our life or organization and creating a plan to ensure success.
I draw on my experiences from multiple venues. Professionally, for 20+ years I ran exemplary character based nonprofit organizations. This work involved significant staff development and team dynamics along with the traditional skills of strategic planning, financial development, board governance, and community building. One of the key success indicators that stood out was a sound strategic plan that we integrated in all aspects of operations and evaluations. I then looked at my personal life and saw that my dreams had a much stronger chance of reality if I put together a plan to acheive them. I developed My Personal Strategic Plan, a program to look at what my mission was, what was happening in all aspects of my life and creating a personalized stragetic plan for my life plan. It has made a tremendous difference and I am now sharing these tools with others.
Personally, my adult life has been one of many changes, some wonderful, some not so good and some downright crises. Throughout my entire adulthood I have been a follower of the personal growth, self-help world. Norman Vincent Peale, Ken Blanchard, Stephen Covey, Parker Palmer, Wayne Dyer, Alan Cohen, Course in Miracles, Seth Godin are only a few of the many thought leaders and processes I have followed. Interestingly, I am equally drawn to the wisdom of both business and personal growth authors. The overriding theme of those I follow is living and leading through a heart-centered or authentic existence.
My strategic consulting and coaching business is a perfect marriage of my professional career and the principles I have embraced in my extensive search for meaning. I have found that I thrive on change as it really is the only real constant in life and business. Because of this, I have made it my life passion to be an expert on helping others navigate it themselves. I have been called a passionate visionary, innovator, natural leader and motivator. I truly care about all whom I serve.
