A Note from Janyne

Being a guest in your organization and earning the trust to share your dreams is an honor. My passion is working with organizations to define where they are, where they want to be and how to bridge that gap. I bring value to businesses by listening intently to your concerns. Once I understand your vision, values and goals, I help you put the infrastructure in place so you will reach your aspirations. We begin by loosening the limitations that keep you from excelling. Let’s grow your organization together.

“Janyne’s main task was to work with our leadership team, first to understand what we envisioned for the future. As soon as that was defined, she created a vision and mission statement. She started with the executive team and worked her way to the next level and the next. Everyone was in lockstep. Janyne coached us to move us forward in a direction where everyone was much more cheerful and happy to come to work. We transformed a warehouse into a high-powered tech center that could be toured. Janyne really helped transition the environment.”

“Janyne was an amazing executive coach during a time of massive change, not only in my organization, but also concerning how we fit in the overall human resources industry. I needed outside guidance and counsel on several fronts in order to preserve and grow the business for the future, amidst the HR profession and the general economy. Janyne is a person of the highest integrity. She builds trust, processes quickly and comes back immediately with valuable and usable data.”
