Heather Gilmartin Adams
Heather Adams is director of marketing at the Arbinger Institute, a training and consulting firm that helps individuals, teams, and organizations move from the default self-focus of an inward mindset to the results-focus of an outward mindset. With programs and methodology based on 45 years of research in the psychology of human behavior and more than 35 years of practical experience working with organizations worldwide, Arbinger enables organizations and their people to achieve results that are only possible with an outward mindset. Heather brings to Arbinger an abiding passion for personal and organizational transformation. Trained in international peacebuilding and cross-cultural communication, Heather has years of experience working with the federal government and the private sector to enhance organizational performance by shifting the mindsets that underlie behaviors. Prior to joining Arbinger, Heather was an engagement manager, consultant, and facilitator with a boutique consulting firm that helped organizations transform their cultures in support of business objectives. She also worked for the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where she partnered with senior executives to improve strategic alignment, processes and operations. In prior lives, Heather was a peace and security researcher in Hamburg, Germany, an English teacher in China and, for one summer, a wrangler on a dude ranch in Colorado. She holds a master’s degree in international affairs from Columbia University and a bachelor’s degree in history from Princeton University. She and her husband Matt live in the Salt Lake City metro area with their dog, Langley.  Learn more about the Arbinger Institute:
