Clear direction. High-performing teams. Powerful relationships. Success.
Sounds pretty good, right?
In order to get there, you have to engage your most important resource—your people. We work with progressive organizations--small or large, public, coop or private--who are interested in doing just that: engaging and supporting their people to thrive.
We’ll show you and your people how to flourish.
Bold leadership is needed today. Leaders need to be agile and they need to be open to possibilities. Gone are the days of the leader thinking they have to bring all of the answers. Challenge even your best and your brightest to bring even more value through a customized leadership development program that’s uniquely designed to deliver the outcomes you want.
We’ll help you make a culture shift.
Culture can be hard to define and even harder to shape. Haekka Leadership will help you do both. So what is there now that no longer serves, and what do you want more of? We start by creating and imagining and then put in place the practices that will intentionally build the culture you want.
Meaningful, real connections. It’s what your people thrive on.
Tapping into the power of teamwork is one of the trickiest but most influential changes you can make. Let’s help your team connect and find their way to better-than-ever communication, trust, and success.
The outcome? Better results and engaged team members.
"Joanne Spalton is by far the most effective facilitator I've had in my 20+ years of taking management courses. Her management coaching is really valuable for me right now, as I have a team in transition and this change is ruffling some feathers. I really appreciate Joanne's approach to teaching. It's insightful and easy to apply.”
When figuring out what to name this organization, I had to get right to the heart of what was different about our approach. I didn’t know how the heck to give it a meaningful name.
So, I looked to my roots.
My mother was an adopted child, taken home at three months from a private hospital to be raised by a strong Icelandic woman. My mother was always proud of her roots, even if she couldn't claim them as her own, by blood.
You see, we are of our roots yet our roots do not strictly define us. You can flourish and grow. You move away from, yet never lose touch with, your roots.
As a leader, you can develop a self-awareness to understand how your roots serve you, and how they may not.
It’s about moving away from the automatic and unconscious.
You can be more intentional about creating the future you want.
And that’s where the meaning of the name “Haekka” comes in. It’s an Icelandic word that means "to elevate." And that's what we’re all about at Haekka Leadership.
We elevate your purpose, your people, and your organizations to the highest forms possible.
