Stepping Into A New Leadership Role And Feeling A Bit Overwhelmed?
If you want to be a great leader overall, navigate new working relationships, build a high functioning team during chaotic times while increasing your confidence and decreasing your anxiety to get it all right (including family time) we may be just the right fit for working together.
I'm here to partner with you through the use of an assortment of services from individual coaching to group coaching with other leaders, team coaching for you and your team and I can help your team with professional development opportunities and assessments.
I also run an 8-week Mental Fitness Program specifically for newly promoted leaders. This group program trains leaders in daily habits of mind. Through the use of the Positive Intelligence App you will learn to intercept negative thoughts and behaviours, such as judging quickly and harshly. Avoiding difficult decisions. Controlling others. Perfectionism, and so on. Better yet, the app strengthens core muscles around confidence, curiosity, connection, creativity, innovation and more. The group component of the program offers leaders the opportunity to learn, share and grow from one another's experiences. There is also a component of mentorship offered in the program.
You WILL feel noticeable visceral and physical changes within yourself through this program and you will feel prepared to lead confidently. Guaranteed.

I signed up for coaching as a relatively new leader looking to improve my interpersonal and leadership skills. I found the experience to be significantly impactful to my development, not only as a leader but as a person. Jackie is an insightful, direct, and knowledgeable coach. She strikes a great balance between advice/ideas and guiding you through to find answers in yourself. I felt supported and safe while knowing she would push me to do the hard work. I learned how to identify my values and use them to build confidence and certainty in my role. I learned how to make mistakes in a resilient way instead of letting them shape me. I am now armed with several tools to manage conflict, stress, uncertainty, and change. Jackie has also helped me to improve my relationship building skills. She offers perspective and an open mind, helping me to understand how interpersonal dynamics work. Jackie has a variety of methods, tools, and resources she employs to ensure the coachee gets the most out of the sessions. It is not a one-size-fits-all approach. For me, coaching with Jackie was invaluable. I highly recommend her!Kristine Haut
My experience with Jackie has been exceptional! With her guidance, she helped me navigate a very stressful time I had recently in a manner that helped me move forward while also gaining clarity for the people it affected around me. I have also worked with her extensively in the past professionally where Jackie gave me the tools to build a deeper relationship with my leader and teammates. I still use that advice today in a new work setting. Jackies level of professionalism coupled with her natural warmth is why I highly recommend her.Connie H
