I have had the privilege of working closely with Jennifer over the past year. As my IT organization rapidly expanded in response to LinkedIn’s explosive growth, I needed assistance aligning a global team to a common set of objectives and strategies. Jennifer brought with her not only a massive amount of management experience within the IT space but also a keen sense of understanding personality types and how to get each leader to work most effectively at the leadership level as well as with their individual teams. I would not hesitate recommending Jennifer to others looking for an outstanding executive coach!
I've had the pleasure and opportunity to work with Jennifer at Cisco, LinkedIn and now Ciena. She's extremely adept in the role of team builder, IT strategist and process consultant. She's situationally aware, helps build processes, recommends ways of handling situations based on people/team types (MBTI, etc.) and is strong in assessing team strengths and weaknesses. Jennifer has been an integral extension of my leadership team helping us all be our best.
Jennifer is a dynamo, helping leaders navigate the precarious dynamics of corporations, particularly at large technology companies. Beyond direct advice, she also lives her principles out by having led corporate and non-profit groups, as well as her own business. Her positive energy combined with a keen intellect and vast subject-matter knowledge have garnered her a significant degree of credibility across professional disciplines. I personally initiated my relationship with Jennifer when I grew bored in my job. She brought the best research and insights into bear to assess what kinds of environments and dynamics support and foster a thriving and productive professional life for me. Many actionable examples from this analysis helped to support my professional journey by charting a more exciting and stimulating course that not only matches but truly exploits - in the best sense - my skills, experience and temperament.
I have known Jennifer for more than 14 years. She was asked to coach the executives in my organization to help enable better collaboration and stronger, more effective leadership skills. As a newly promoted director in Development, getting coaching from Jennifer presented an opportunity for me to quickly develop a style and set of competencies required to lead large global teams in a very fast paced, innovative environment. What’s unique about Jennifer is her ability to change/transform leadership capabilities of an organization, as well as help develop an overall strategy and execution plan meeting the unique objectives of the business. Jennifer is a very strong, capable, intuitive and effective partner for the executive teams who want to accelerate their business.
I have had the great privilege of being coached by Jennifer over the past year. I manage a unique space within LinkedIn, with a broad spectrum of personalities and learning types. Jennifer has been able to dive into this environment with great ease and confidence, providing insights that have up-leveled my effectiveness as a leader and our teams fluidity overall. Furthermore, she facilitated the most productive global leader offsite that I have been a part of in my tenure here at LinkedIn. I would recommend Jennifer without reservation to leaders at all levels looking to transform themselves and their teams.
I can’t say enough good things about Jennifer. Her wealth of business experience combined with her positive, compassionate and encouraging attitude make her a world-class executive coach and management consultant. I’ve had the pleasure of having Jennifer as an executive coach early in my management career at Cisco, and have greatly benefited and applied her coaching in my career. Even 13 years later, Jennifer has continued to serve as my trusted advisor and business coach. I truly value her long term partnership. She’s genuinely passionate about helping individuals around her to be the best they can be. Jennifer is an exceptional individual and I couldn't recommend anyone more highly!
