Break Through Business Results

Jeannine's coaching is credited with supporting:

  • A Field Executive for a major corporation as he stepped into the coordinator role to manage a major statewide effort to improve customer service. The unique challenge of this project was that this executive had no direct reporting relationship with the hundreds involved in the project. Success was achieved through coaching influence, vision, personal commitment and leading by example.
  • The Senior Vice President of an international energy company as he was promoted to Executive Vice President and the officer Executive Team. Coaching supported him to take on new international offshore responsibilities and lead diversely different teams of experts.
  • The Director of a national government agency to expand his staff four-fold to take on innovative product and marketing campaigns, and integrate several unique teams into a high-performing whole.
  • The Executive Committee of a national company to collaborate as a team by removing silos, identifying conflicting styles and agreeing on priorities of management.
