Our Mission

“I recognized the need for Waterman Hurst when I obtained by first C-level position and nothing changed during the twelve years I was at the top of public companies.”

The leadership experts and career coaches I was exposed to at the top of 4 public subsidiaries and companies had 3 major shortcomings which rendered many of their services ineffective. They did not understand the interplay between career development and leadership development and how they both influence a leader’s success and they didn’t have high level leadership experience themselves. Most were never in the leadership trenches and most never had to make the big decisions required to navigate a career at the top of a company. In addition, there was no expert level support to help me navigate my leadership career.

When I founded Waterman Hurst, I had 12 years as a corporate officer under my belt and had made three company to company moves, changing industries and moving into a #2 operating role within a public company. And based upon almost twenty years of subsequent coaching on leadership skills and career navigation, I understand that expert confidential leadership and career coaching and services provided when you are in the midst of a hard charging leadership career can be game changing.

Waterman Hurst’s mission remains the same today as when I originally founded it in 2000. We provide coaching, knowledge, contacts and services to high performing leaders so they may achieve their professional and personal goals.

Our clients have the flexibility to choose the services they need when they need them, and they have an ongoing trusted source of advice and support throughout their careers.” – Janice Waterman
