A Few Words
Kathy Hadizadeh, MSc Eng, PCC, CPCC, TMF, EQAC is a visionary thought leader who has truly embraced the power of holistic leadership and heart-mind connection.
As a former IT executive, Kathy builds on two Masters in Engineering and Management coupled with 15 years of leading teams in Fortune 100 & 500 companies across multiple industries. In 2016, following a health challenge she was drawn to the world of coaching and strategic thinking around optimizing human potential and brain health.
Kathy founded Heart Mind Tuning with the vision of bringing PAUSE to the life of high achievers in corporations and startup entrepreneurs in tech. Her movement and methodology : Pause to Rise® is registered trademark with US patent office.
Kathy is a certified Integral life, leadership, and executive development coach with New Ventures West and has studied under Steve March. Her studies have focused on the works of Ken Wilber, Alan Watts, and Joseph Heidegger. Integral coaching methodology is an ongoing, evolving methodology intended to be the most comprehensive response to human potential in life.
Following her desire to make an impact in the culture and fast pace world of Tech, she became certified as neuroscience based Emotional Intelligence and Mindful Leadership educator and coach with Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute(SIYLI).
Kathy regards her health challenge as a special gift – and challenge – that set her off on a journey to deepen her understanding of what truly makes her happy, to live in PRESENT, to be grateful for every moment of the precious life. A journey that allowed her to start serving people and learn as she was destined to be. Interesting enough, her last name in Farsi means a person who is born to give light and direction to others.
And on this path, she walks passionately every day and enjoys leaving a legacy by strategically building a moment of PAUSE in people’s lives and architecting a road map in partnership with her clients that allows them not to sacrifice the inner peace and calm for outer accomplishments.

In our iterative reflections, we identify what needs to change or grow in you. We prioritize them based on your VALUES, and short and long term goals. We build a cycle to develop new neural pathways in your brain .
The subconscious mind is a mind that has been developed based on patterns. This causes the chatter in your mind.
To tap into our power, we need to learn to quiet the chatter of the mind. Less noise means: More coherence between heart and brain.

While Harvard Business School, Forbes Magazine, and several other independent organizations have found significantly high returns on investment from coaching, I ask you: How much is your happiness and fulfiment worth to you?

In a nutshell, I am someone who helps you learn to focus, quiet the chatter and ask deep and meaningful questions to help you arrive at understanding what changes you want to make to achiever your full potential and expefrience happiness in life.
Therapy is useful, but is backward looking and focused on healing past trauma. Consulting has its place, but consultants are paid to provide subject matter expertise beyond what a client already knows. They tell you what to do instead of helping you to uncover the best of what you already know. Coaches, on the other hand, are not focused on providing advice. Coaches focus on supporting clients in arriving at their own best and appropriate solutions and maintain forward-looking outlook for how a client wants things to be in the future, regardless of what happened in the past.
You will need time to reflect and take some actions,Most my clients use their jobs as their perfect playground to take actions and that becomes natural to them. You will need to allocate time in between our sessions BUT I promise you that the focus will increase your productivity! There is a famous quote that says: You should meditate 30 minutes every day unless you are busy. Then you should meditate an hour a day! Do you get the point?
