Global aerospace executive’s transformational mindset coaching leads to promotion to a $1B sector.

Aerospace Company

The Challenge

A leader at a large aerospace company needed to boost his influence, better understand how to best navigate his sector’s distinct culture and advance in his career.


With a series of 1:1 coaching sessions across just 3 months, the client and Lori Heffelfinger focused on critical shifts in mindset. Indeed, THC’s deep coaching work affirms how mindset shifts out-power behavioral changes—and ease behavioral changes—for both emerging and established leaders.


“Lori demonstrated a good understanding of the complexities facing executives in Northrop Grumman. Her broad-based experience helped her quickly understand the culture within the sector and what that meant for me as a leader. She helped me better understand both my leadership style and the needs of my key stakeholders within the sector. Ultimately, this work resulted in a promotion to a GM role in a $1B sector.” VP-GM, large aerospace company

“We were looking for a workshop to provide a shift in culture in our department. Lori and James provided an amazing experience with a Team Alignment Workshop for our team of six. We witnessed our team become more collaborative, more effective in communicating with each other, and more effective as an organizational system.”
Former Sr Director, Alumni & External Relations
“We were looking for a total immersion experience as part of our intensive performance Leadership Program. Lori and Sophie provided an amazing experience using The Organization Workshop for our roughly 300 leaders over six years. We witnessed our leaders become more collaborative, more effective in their organizations, and more strategic in their alliances using a systems perspective while experiencing heightened ambiguity and complexity. And I’m about to hire Lori and The Heffelfinger Company again!”
