Make sure you are keeping your shoulders in the direction you are going. Don't turn them to look at your dog. I'm really bad about that, and the lady that helps me told me to stop and it helped A LOT.

I also jog around the corner, then instead of ending on a sit occasionally run oout of the figure 8 after the lagging corner.

Not sure if you already do this and I don't train a lot of heeling, but do you do any circle work outside heeling? Like agility foundations stuff?

In addition to all the good advice, don't forget to reinforce at a high rate of delivery when the dog is in the right position relative to you. Really show where you want the dog to be. (mark it, reinforce)
