We had the good fortune of connecting with Heather R. Younger and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Heather, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
The vision I have for my consulting company, Employee Fanatix, is to transform the experience of work for employees, teams, and organizations. We’re on a mission to create better workplaces, stronger cultures, and enhanced employee experiences. At the same time, we’re helping leaders to gauge the personal power they possess to positively impact the people they work with, and empowering employees to advocate for themselves because that they realize their voices matter. Employees spend over 40 hours a week of their lives at work. They take any unhappiness, pressure, or stress back home with them and, in that way, works spill over into their personal lives. But if employees feel heard and appreciated for the work they do, and are given the environment they need to grow and flourish, and get to do work that feels fulfilling, they will take that positive impact home with them to their families and spouses and children.

What are your plans for the future? 
When it comes to my business, I plan on continuing to scale by adding more consultants and building our knowledge and skill sets so that we can continue to meet our clients’ needs – no matter what happens. I want Employee Fanatix to become a niche consulting practice that is differentiated by our commitment to keeping our ears to the ground and listening closely to what the market wants so we can deliver on that.
Personally, I’m looking forward to traveling with my family sometime soon in 2021.
What are you looking forward to or planning for – any big changes?
The launch of my new book, The Art of Caring Leadership, is something I’m looking forward to – especially because we won’t only be launching the book, but also a community and an assessment and an online academy. I’m also looking forward to expanding the impact of my business, so we can touch more people globally.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?

My family – I couldn’t do what I do without their love or support!
