Through coaching, I increased my awareness of how I show up as a leader and learned strategies to take intentional action that drives my best results. Now, I know how to maximize engagement for myself and my team to focus on solutions rather than problems. When I realized that I was in control of my experience and didn't have to live in the typical frenetic pace, it was so liberating. The shift in every facet of my life has been amazing!
When I started working with Jen, I knew there were things that I wanted to improve upon as a leader, but wasn't sure how. Through our work together, I have learned to more easily take others' perspectives and to understand how to align my words and actions with my intent. I have become more able to suspend judgment in stressful situations and to explore a variety of possible solutions before coming to conclusions - this has been very freeing! My team membership has improved as I learn to recognize what energy I'm injecting into each situation and to better understand and empathize with those around me.
I’ve worked with Jen for 3 years and it’s been a great investment. She helped me transform my leadership approach and as a result I started to show up differently at work, and in life, and those around me became happier and more productive. She was invaluable as I made one of the biggest transitions in my career, moving from the corporate world into entrepreneurship. She serves as a sounding board, strategy partner, and advocate. I can truly say that my life has been enriched since I started working with Jen Roberts.
Through my coaching experience, I've gained a great deal of personal awareness about how I show up as a leader. Now, I communicate more effectively to engage my team. The tangible result is a team that focuses on solutions and takes responsibility for their own outcomes. I am better, stronger, and more prepared to lead than ever before!
Jen’s training programs have provided my leaders and staff with the skills they needed to change both our internal and external communications and improve our division’s credibility. My staff is engaging with our stakeholders at a level I’ve never seen before—it’s a complete 180. I’ve received nothing but positive feedback about the impact of her training! We will continue to leverage her expertise for future development needs.
Self-Awareness was my biggest take away from this outstanding experience, and it has helped me just as much personally as it has professionally! I wake up each day knowing that I control my own energy.The coaching I received made me realize that before I was able to help others I needed to help myself first. Jen had a huge part in my transformation and her coaching was second to none. I am now able to take on whatever opportunities or challenges that come my way. I will be forever grateful to Jen for the gift that she has given me.
Jen’s coaching gave me the opportunity to modify my own attitudes and behaviors and to help do the same for my employees. I needed to challenge my employees’ beliefs and prove to them through my actions and attitude that the status quo no longer works in our environment. Jen’s coaching provided me with the techniques to show my employees that I am engaged and committed to empowering them to solve their challenges by themselves. The result is an inspired, engaged, and motivated leader and employees who are “all in” with each guest and each peer.
Jen is clearly very knowledgeable and an engaging speaker. The concepts and skills our department learned since participating in the MBTI/Communications training continue to pay dividends. As a leader it has allowed me to focus both on what I say, and how I communicate with my direct reports. From my staff’s perspective, it provides them something that they can refer to when they wish to remind me that I may not be communicating with them in the best way possible, and I really appreciate that.
Working with Jen has been an enlightening experience and very worthwhile for my personal and professional aspirations. Through our work together, I have become more acutely aware of my triggers for stressful reactions. Now, I have greater success with positive responses leading to productive outcomes. This mindset shift has empowered me to maintain consistently peaceful relationships at work and at home, even through very challenging circumstances.
A lack of trust and communication created barriers for some of our teams. Jen's training helped team members express themselves in constructive ways through engaging and enjoyable activities.
Jen's training also helped guide our team in addressing and overcoming many issues that prevented stellar work. Now the team is back on track and excited to work towards shared goals.
The atmosphere and attitudes haven't been more positive and we can see the sun shine through the clouds. Thanks, Jen!
