Coaching valued professionals

What do you do when you have a very talented employee, someone who shows great promise and has terrific technical or professional skills, but is either new to a management job or just isn’t developing his or her potential as a leader after a reasonable amount of time?

Maybe this person doesn’t listen effectively, struggles with time management, or has trouble interacting well with peers and subordinates. Whatever the issues, you want them to succeed, and realize they – and the organization – could benefit from coaching.

Julie Jansen specializes in one-on-one personal and professional development to help ensure ROI for highly valued employees. She interviews leaders and peers to learn about the individual’s strengths and developmental gaps, and once she’s assessed his or her challenges and needs, creates a customized coaching process to help address issues, opportunities and barriers that are preventing the individual from achieving his or her potential.

Executive Coaching FAQs

Why do organizations hire Julie to work with their employees?

Most organizations realize that enhanced business results are gained through developing individual and group behavioral skills and values integration within the organization. While optimizing performance requires the intense focus of the entire team, the key ingredient to sustained performance is engaged and effective managers and employees throughout the organization.

An external, experienced coach can quickly understand and appreciate an organization’s unique cultural nuances. This includes building trust with key stakeholders, and someone who is skilled at reprogramming bad habits, identifying skill gaps, and suggesting activities and techniques to help an executive or high-potential professional to meet their goals and objectives. This in turn helps the organization meet their business objectives.
