"A great coach tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear."
As your coach, I have the easy role. Your role as the coachee requires vulnerability, flexibility, and a willingness to get outside of your comfort zone. I will support you, confidentially, each step of the way, whether you are reaching for a promotion or trying to lose those last 5 pounds.
Together, we will look at patterns of behavior, identify the roadblocks that stop you (the same ones that have likely stopped you in the past) and create specific and engaging plans to remove them – for good.
"Just want to say a very sincere !!!!THANK YOU!!!! for the difference you have made in my life and offer up the fact you have made a lasting impression on me that will have transformed my direction in my life and career permanently. It is not often we meet someone capable of that and it is a very unique skillset, level of commitment to people and energy to make that possible!" (C. Cameron, IT Manager)
"On behalf of my team I want to thank you for all your support over these past two years. I know there have been several folks who have taken advantage of (and have benefited from!!!) your very fine coaching."
(L. Kirkegard, VP, Finance)
" You have been my life coach and you have helped me tremendously personally and professionally on how to look at things in a different way."
(A. Delmundo, Finance Analyst)
"People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel." Maya Angelou
Confession: I am an accidental trainer. I once said, "I would love to teach, but not kids." As it happens, I was re-organized overnight and put in charge of my first training team and had to figure it out. I fell in love.
"Jennifer Fox was awesome. She was our best speaker of the day out of a group of very good speakers."
"I loved this workshop! Speaker was fantastic, entertaining, and shared valuable information! Thank you!"
My commitment as a trainer is to create and deliver programs that result in at least one "Aha!" moment for each attendee. Whether the learner comes to the program engaged or dragged there as a "mandatory" activity, my goal is the same. My style is informal and personable, weaving stories and past client examples seamlessly into the content. I loathe role-playing and favor real-world discussions and practical activities. Insights are great, but actions make a difference, so every session ends with a declaration of a new habit or set of actions to be taken. And I always follow-up with the participants permission. I'm less interested in the training high that people experience during an off-site than I am in supporting lasting change.
Training Topics: I am available to design and deliver customized programs focusing in the following areas: management, leadership, communication, presentation skills, team-building, goal-setting and more.
Supporting individuals and teams to increase self-awareness and enable more effective communication.

"You have genuine compassion -- you earnestly want to help people be their best selves. This means that even when “the truth hurts,” your empathy has built trust such that no matter what the situation is, people know that you have their best interests at heart." - Dan Martin, CEO, Twinings North America
While I use the term "consulting" because it is universally understood, I prefer to think of myself as an advisor. I've had experiences with consultants whereby they show up with a 65-slide deck listing all of our faults, recommend solutions costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, and leave after their contract is up with no lasting change. My approach is the opposite.
"You have a gift in your ability to read between the lines. You understand not only what people say but also have a keen instinct of interpreting the subtle and hidden meaning behind the words that have been said – and equally importantly, the words that have been left unsaid. You have the courage to be completely candid so that your message is completely clear, even if it makes a situation awkward or causes some to feel uncomfortable. Thanks to this candor, you help people grasp the reality of situations instead of living in their own “bubbles.” You have genuine compassion -- you earnestly want to help people be their best selves. This means that even when “the truth hurts,” your empathy has built trust such that no matter what the situation is, people know that you have their best interests at heart."
(D. Martin, CEO, Twinings North America)
