Please introduce yourself to our readers:
Greetings Glambitious Go-getters! I am Dr. Fatimah Pierce, and as the CEO of Hickman Rose Strategies, I coach and advise careerists, leaders, and entrepreneurs on how to define and exceed their goals through strengths development, purposeful planning, and motivational accountability.
I spent almost 20 years in the public sector leading cross-functional teams to support the administration of billion-dollar programs. Through several senior management positions, I worked to shape policy, improve organizational efficiency, and develop an engaged workforce. However, my calling was always coaching and training, and I’ve supported dozens of women on their professional journeys. I’m obsessed with success, and I believe that everything you want to achieve is in reach! I would love to help you get there.
What makes you a visionary?
My visionary spirit is the culmination of my limitless thinking, acquired wisdom, and ability to get results. I don’t just dream big, I connect the dots, put in the work, and elevate others along the way.
Share the 3 key steps that helped you bring your vision to life:
Scholarship: Not just excelling academically, but also being resourceful enough to research information and ideas in order to approach things strategically, which is a great foundation for success.
Mentorship: Serving as both a mentor and protégé throughout all career and business stages. We all have areas in which we can share our expertise or learn from others, and mentorship is critically important for African American women.
Partnership: Building and maintaining mutually-beneficial relationships is essential. Partnerships allow you to leverage opportunities and grow exponentially while creating win-wins for everyone involved.
What is next for you in 2020?
My company’s theme for this year is Growing + Giving! That includes expanding our management consulting services and taking on more corporate and government clients. In addition, I am designing a program to support high school entrepreneurship. Also, now that I have completed my doctorate, I will be conducting more research related to inclusion and equity and participating in speaking engagements on that topic. My bonus goal is to host a career and business retreat this Fall.
