Jill’s coaching clients are leaders who want to make a greater impact, engage better with their peers, and powerfully lead their teams. Jill employs various tools and strategies that enhance communication and collaboration and leverage how style and strengths affect the ability to succeed. Jill’s passion is to help leaders and their teams unleash their unique brilliance to create meaningful and lasting change, while delivering bottom-line results. Jill embeds the following Three Core Principles in her work:

Truth and Courage: Candor with a sense of caring builds awareness, clarity and trust – the bedrock to high-performance. Bravely sharing what we see will always move people forward, faster.

Collaboration and Inclusion: Brilliant leaders know the value of having all the voices at the table. In a culture based on belonging, people are safe to be themselves as they accomplish together what they otherwise cannot apart.

A Whole Person Approach: For enduring positive change, leaders must bring all of themselves into play. Clarifying values and a vision of success, as well as reducing any undue stress, frees up energy for what matters most.

Jill’s clients are driven executives, emerging high-potential leaders and in-tact teams within a variety of industries, including but not limited to financial services, utilities, healthcare, legal services, technology, consumer products, manufacturing, and the non-profit sector.  Some of Jill’s clients include: Pfizer, LEGO, Voya Financial, The Hartford, Greater Boston Legal Services, Connecticut Legal Services, TTM Technologies, Kipsu, iHealth, Evariant, NYU, CareCentrix, Kaman Corp, Prudential Financial, BHCare, Riverstone and Raytheon.
