Heather Winpenny 

Associate Coach I Clifton Strengths Coach 

Heather has been using CliftonStrengths to coach individuals and teams for over 20 years. Her passion for helping people to better understand themselves and what makes them “tick” never wanes. 


The focus of her coaching conversations is on using the results of the CliftonStrengths assessment to help people to understand, appreciate and be proud of who they are.  


Together with her clients Heather explores what they are naturally good at – it’s not about trying to make them great at everything because – here’s the thing – none of us are great at everything.  It’s about understanding, aiming and intentionally using our unique talents, the things we love to do, the things we naturally do and are great at, to be our best possible selves.

Her career has spanned over 30 years from self employment as a psychometric interviewer and CliftonStrengths coach to working in the HR team of a Global Asset Management company. She has coached hundreds of individuals and worked with many teams and bring all of this experience and insight to every coaching conversation.
