Hiring your own executive coach can accelerate development.
Many employers today offer executive coaching to the top echelon of leadership. Even more have developed “high-potential tracks” for training and mentoring emerging leaders.
What if you don’t work for those organizations? Or perhaps you haven’t been selected for or hired into those programs? What if you just want an independent thinking partner outside the company as you grow into your management career?
That’s where we come in.
According to a Global Coaching Client study (International Coaching Federation, 2009), 96% of clients indicated that they would repeat the coaching experience. You don’t have to be on top to recognize the value of emotional intelligence, building powerful networks, or learning key competencies for leadership.
Our executive coaching approach starts with the understanding that adults change their behaviors when they are intrinsically motivated to do so. Underlying every coaching relationship is an understanding of the science behind behavioral change, which helps us to structure engagements in the manner most beneficial to our clients.
As a certified executive coach with the Weatherhead School of Management, Jessica is trained in facilitation grounded in the Theory of Intentional Change by Dr. Richard Boyatzis. Our coach approach is always grounded first in exploration of an inspiring, hopeful vision of the future. Multiple research studies from the fields of psychology, organizational behavior, education, and neuroscience demonstrate that focus on a hopeful vision is the most statistically significant indicator of successful change and goal attainment.
Emotional & Social Intelligence
Understanding yourself and others, and using this information to manage yourself and your relationships, has been proven as the set of behaviors which separate bosses from leaders. JWJ Consulting uses Primal Leadership by Richard Boyatzis, Daniel Goleman, and Annie McKee, Resonant Leadership/Becoming a Resonant Leader by Richard Boyatzis, Annie McKee, and Frances Johnston, The Stress Effect by Henry L. Thompson, and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There by Marshall Goldsmith.
Often we have a sense of who we are but a foggy concept of how others are on the inside. Or sometimes it’s hard to know what our outside looks like to others. As a Master Practitioner of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI©) Steps I and II, Jessica has spent 15 years studying and using psychological type to enhance clients’ awareness of self and others.
