​Deborah Heater, President - CEO, Strategic Performance Systems has a strong desire to help your organization be the best it can be. 

​Building a culture of excellence is as much an art as it is a science. You have to create a quality organizational framework, secure and retain quality talent, and empower teams to manage operational systems. Your organization’s success is measured  by the degree to which you meet  the needs of your stakeholders, internal and external. The challenge is in the details and all the potential obstacles ​between good intentions and actionable strategies. ​ 

There is a synergy needed between leading your employees and managing your operational systems. Transformational Leadership is the foundation for organizational change and success. She has more than 27 years of experience advising organizational leadership on systemic challenges and sustainable improvements.  Deborah has taught leadership and inclusion strategies for 18 years.  

She has worked in a variety of organizations that include K-12 and higher education, for profits, non-profits, and municipalities. Some of her most rewarding work involves community projects that recognize what is great about people regardless of their status or circumstances.  Participants in my career workshops have come from the state and federal government as well as the banking industry.  Particpants in DEI workshops have included more than 35 nonprofits and federal, state, and for-profit organizations.


​Compliance related to policy and regulations are crucial to avoid distractions and potential financial sanctions.  As an attorney, she addresses issues to reduce exposure to liability.

Deborah advises for a Master’s Degree program at Northern Kentucky University's College of Business. The Executive Leadership and Organizational Change Master’s Degree program focuses on emotionally intelligent leadership and cohesive teaming cultures.. 

Given the many issues you must attend to on a daily basis, you could use some help. The goal of Strategic Performance Systems is to be a trusted adviser and build a productive partnership with your organization and provide value rich consulting services where you need them most.
