The Team

The Rev. Heather Barta is a priest in the Episcopal Church.  She spends a lot of time connecting people to each other and to resources and creating opportunities for those connections to grow into networks of support.  She loves to teach about leadership, adaptive change, and how we can bring the Kingdom of God to our here and now.  As a coach, she is passionate about helping individuals and groups to be effective leaders in their lives, growing into the people that God is calling them to be. She imagines a world where every leader has a coach to help them be confident, self-differentiated, and focused to bring about the changes that are so needed for a kind and peaceful world.  

Dr. Nancy Foster is a trainer, church leader, and retired educator. She has worked within education and the church to identify the skills and knowledge needed to bring necessary change and vision to an organization in order to continue to be relevant in a world that is unlike anything we have experienced before. As a coach she partners with individuals and groups to find pathways to opportunities never thought possible. She also leads them in identifying the actions that will allow them to realize their desired potential. 


As a team they bring their experience as trainers and the perspectives of different roles within the church.  They have been training leaders for over 6 years and bring not only their own knowledge but that of other experts on leading during a time of great change.

Leading Through a Pandemic

"Leading through a Pandemic" will assist participants in understanding some of the difficulties when leading through “unchartered territory” utilizing practical strategies from Ronald Heifetz’s Adaptive Leadership and Tod Bolsinger’s techniques for guiding through unimaginable situations. Take time to strengthen your skills in identifying what has changed, assessing how it has affected the congregation in positive and negative ways, honing your leadership tools, and designing ways to travel forward into the new “normal” territory.

Team Coaching focuses on a whole team of people and the work that they are trying to do together. This group of people comes together because they have a common goal and mission or they are trying to define that common goal or mission. Sometimes the people aren't yet functioning as a team and want to learn how to be a better team and sometimes the team wants to take their ministry to the next level of efficiency.


Teams that might appreciate coaching: Vestries, Church Staffs, Camp and conference Staffs, Parish Committees, Diocesan Commissions on Ministries.
