Coaching with jen
Waiting to be happy, hoping to be happier, expecting to be happier, but doing the same thing.
This is where many of us get stuck.
I will help you see what is really going on - see yourself as the leader of your own happiness, and create a plan to get it.
Leadership is not a title; it is a way of living and being that will put you in the drivers seat of your career and not-career joy.
Whether we work one-on-one or you attend my workshops or leadership programs, you will be offered a set of tools that should you apply them, can get you to where you need to be to feel the sigh of relief you’ve been chasing. The true feeling that what you are doing is great, and who you are being is great.
Hear from a past client
“Jennifer has been my coach for just over a year. She has helped me understand my strengths, weaknesses and fears and how to improve in all areas. I have set and achieved goals that I did not think were possible with her supporting me and holding me to account. Most importantly I have gained new perspective about work and life balance that has had such a positive influence in all aspects of my life. The value of the investment in her services has been tremendous and I won’t be without it now.”

What you can expect from jen
Not knowing what you are getting in coaching can cause hesitation. I know.
When you work with me, we create a clear framework that outlines what we are doing, what the expectations are, where you want to go and how you will get there.
Because we are not selling a widget, it would be crazy to tell you we sell one thing. We don’t “create leaders” or “fix your advancement problems”. We hold a light where you can’t see and then hold you to practical action that you will take to move past it.
My coaching process
1. Clarify: understand what isn’t working and where you want to be in your career and life.
2. Create action: will this be a pivot or a huge leap? Change is a given if you want a different outcome.
What habits are necessary for actions you can commit to that lead to the outcomes you expect?.
3. Celebrate the results and tweak as you go. Change is an ongoing reality to being better, and doing better in life.
Are you ready to be great? Is good enough no longer enough for you?
Frequently Asked Questions:
How is coaching different from therapy? . . .
Therapy is great and often based on the past. I am all for therapy in it’s many forms, and changing how we think (CBT) can be transformational. Coaching is changing how we ACT to get different results. It is knowing what we need, how to communicate it with respect to career development. Both are useful, in different contexts.
Is Coaching regulated and covered in my benefits? . . .
I am certified by the International Coaching Federation, and completed training and testing from an approved provider of coach training. Not all coaches complete training with an ICF Certified training program. Be thorough in your research before you hire a coach, and ask your employer if your benefits or a Learning and Development allowance can be put toward my coaching fees.
What is the cost of coaching? . . .
I offer 3 packages, in order to cover the needs of those I serve.
Coaching for real results is a process so i do not coach on a one-off basis. I would be happy to chat about costs and budget.
I lead a team who seem to have lost their drive. Do you offer group sessions? . . .
I work with teams to better understand how mindset, external factors and internal beliefs affect performance. I conduct group coaching, workshops and leadership programs for all sizes of organizations.
Coaching seems a bit fluffy for me. How does this help me professionally? . . .
The most successful professionals in the world know what they want, what they need to do to get it, and they take action. This is my coaching philosophy, and how I practice.
Can I take your programs on-line? . . .
At this time, I do not provide on-line programs due to the nature of the give/take relationship coaching offers. If you can’t tell me what is stopping you from being successful, I can’t help you work past it. For this reason, 1:1 work is a better approach.
I am nearly retired. Am I too old for career coaching? . . .
If you are the leader of your own life, you fit the criteria for coaching with me. I look for commitment to work hard, an open mind and a need to change for the better.
