Through executive coaching and a senior leadership engagement program, 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 taking intentional action toward solutions rather than dwelling on problems. When I realized that I was in control of my experience and didn't have to live in the typical frenetic pace of the corporate world, it was so liberating. The shift in every facet of my life has been amazing!
Working with Difference Consulting has been a great investment. Through executive coaching, I was able to 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. Jen’s guidance 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 through my experience.
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!
Difference Consulting’s leadership development 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 their training! We will continue to leverage Difference Consulting’s expertise for future development needs.
I gained a great deal of self-awareness from our team’s outstanding leadership engagement experience, and it has helped me just as much personally as it has professionally! Now, I wake up each day knowing how to best engage my team. The executive coaching I received as a part of the program made me realize that before I was able to help others I needed to help myself first. Difference Consulting had a huge part in my transformation and Jen’s executive 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 Difference Consulting for the gift that they have given me.
Difference Consulting’s leadership engagement strategies 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. Difference Consulting 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 and her team are clearly very knowledgeable and engaging speakers. The concepts and skills our department gained in the MBTI/Communications training continue to pay dividends long after the session. As a leader it has allowed me to intentionally 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 Difference Consulting has been an enlightening experience and very worthwhile for my personal and professional aspirations. Through our work together, our leadership team is more aligned and we have greater success with positive responses leading to productive outcomes. These strategies have 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. Difference Consulting's training helped team members express themselves in constructive ways through engaging and enjoyable activities. Their 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!
I first worked with Jen in an executive coaching capacity and that experience permanently changed my perspective and style of leadership engagement. Since then, Difference Consulting has been our go-to strategic partner for a number of initiatives. Most recently, Jen served as our strategic consulting partner to create our successful campus-wide technology strategic plan. Working with her team has paid huge dividends and we will continue to leverage their expertise on future leadership development needs!
