Whitney Hess is a coach, mediator, and facilitator helping people bring their whole selves to their work. Her life’s mission is to put humanity back into business.
Since 2005, Whitney has instituted human-centered practices at hundreds of leading organizations — transforming process, communication, and culture. She shows leaders and their teams how to gain self-awareness, identify blind spots, overcome obstacles, and reach their true potential. As a result, they better serve their customers, their companies, their communities, and themselves.
Whitney writes on her blog Pleasure & Pain, co-hosts the podcast Designing Yourself, and speaks at conferences and corporations worldwide. She holds a Master's in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University, and became a Certified Integral Coach through New Ventures West. She is a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, and a professional member of the National Speakers Association.
Whitney and her partner Fredrick balance their time between a high-rise in NYC and a sailboat in San Diego.
