Evolving Workforce Talent Leader
Managing Director | Deloitte University
One Deloitte Way
Heidi Soltis-Berner serves as Evolving Workforce Talent leader and managing director of Deloitte University. Her broad charge within these two roles is to lead and influence cultural change at Deloitte, build high-performing talent networks, and prepare the next generation of distinctively Deloitte leaders.
Heidi is a workforce innovator, bringing an intrapreneurial startup mentality to shaping the talent agenda and leading change. In her twenty-three year career with Deloitte, she has run the full talent lifecycle, from intern to client service to managing director, and worked in multiple functions and disciplines. This varied experience helps Heidi appreciate specific business requirements while working across organizational borders.
Heidi’s career is a story of firsts, from incubating new offerings to designing new platforms. She has helped address talent migration and cultural integration challenges and led early implementation of a new performance management system that uses real-time data and continuous engagement to improve performance. She is currently co-leading the organization-wide rollout of that innovative approach.
Heidi balances the drive to innovate and set the pace of change with multidisciplinary business experience that makes her an effective influencer as well as an acute judge of how to mitigate risk and ease implementation. Her pragmatic, iterative approach to corporate development will be critical as Heidi leads the next phase of Deloitte University’s evolution, and helps the organization continue to successfully expand the use of an open talent model.
Heidi empowers teams to think bigger, accelerate experiments, fail fast and scale what works.
She champions purposeful collaboration that builds on diverse strengths, takes bold steps, and reaches for extraordinary outcomes. That combination has made Heidi a valued project sponsor and career mentor, from the Ellen Gabriel Fellows program, which she sponsored in 2016, to her own informal leadership networks.
Heidi lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband and two daughters, and enjoys spending time together with them in sports, performing arts, and travel.
