Why is it so hard to create a world-class technical organization? Is it because technology changes so quickly, disrupting entire markets and systems overnight? Or is it because most technical leaders do not have ready access to the business leadership knowledge that their peers in marketing, finance, and sales develop naturally through their career paths?
We offer a world-class process to help you navigate all-important business, organizational, and leadership decisions with confidence, based on our work with some of the finest technical companies and IT and engineering leadership teams in the world.
Strengthen your strategic decision-making about the business, technology, leadership, and your organization through one-on-one coaching, workshops, and leadership team off-sites.
Your transformational vision or break-through strategy will only succeed if key stakeholders are on board, the people in your organization are inspired to achieve it, and needed resources are mobilized and aligned. We help talented leaders identify their strengths and leverage them to become far more influential by combining our methods with their unique talents and experience.
Clients utilize us as both coaches and advisors, both for themselves and for high potential and key leaders on their teams.
Sometimes our work is formally structured, including interviews and feedback, setting measurable goals, and measuring progress through periodic stakeholder reviews. Jennifer is a certified Marshall Smith Stakeholder-Centered Coach, and uses this methodology to guarantee results.
At other times, you or your team may wish to use us as a sounding board as you explore your ideas, or as an objective outside advisor in leading large-scale organizational change.
Many clients choose to integrate our leadership development processes into larger projects to transform an entire technology business or a technical function.
Regardless of the approach, we provide real-time coaching so you can adapt your approach to situations as they unfold. We are forthcoming and frank, so you receive the input, guidance, and feedback you need to ensure success.
Every leadership team is unique. We help teams gain valuable insights into their unique dynamics, strengths, and potential pitfalls as a team and as individual team members. We work with you to set goals for team growth, and serve as coaches and advisors as you work to achieve these goals.
As with executive and leadership development, clients often choose to integrate our team development recommendations and approaches into larger initiatives.
Your team development process may include self-assessment, team observation, key stakeholder interviews and feedback, off-sites, and one-on-one coaching as needs arise.
Would you like to better understand and leverage your team’s unique personality dynamics, in a way that leaves team members feeling better understood, not pigeon-holed?
Jennifer is a Type Coach, Interaction Styles, and Master-Certified MBTI Practitioner. She can provide you and your team with advanced training and coaching on how to appreciate and make the most of personality dynamics. Jennifer’s workshops are lively, interactive, and highly actionable.
Team dynamics workshops can be integrated into on-going strategy and leadership coaching processes, or you can experience them as stand-alone half-day or full-day team-building workshops.
