Jennifer can help you figure out the best route to take so you can align with your deepest values, execute on your biggest visions, and serve the field of education in the ways you want to most.
We all have crazy relationships with TIME, yet no one has figured out how to stop expecting educators to do more and more with the same number of hours in a day.
It doesn’t matter if you get to work earlier or if you stay later.
Part of what fuels this madness is that best practices are ostensibly built on more content, more systems of delivery, more innovation…. more, more, more. Just like professionals in other fields, educators are plagued by information overload and stimuli exhaustion, and, they have resigned themselves to overwhelm as the new normal.
To do your best work you need to slow down and grow the value of what you have to offer.
You: That’s impossible. How am I supposed to take on less when so much is expected of me? How is slowing down going to help my group meet deadlines?
Me: As a coach, I help my clients redefine what’s possible. I can help you slow down to access the deep and meaningful learning that will push you closer to your values and vision as an educator.
You: I usually try to get to a conference once a year…
Me: How many times have you left a conference inspired and ready to use your new tools — only to get back to school and be met by the Firehose of Expectations (FOE)?
To do your best work you need to slow down and grow the value of what you have to offer. No matter how many apps we download, letting go of an old practice and creating a new one doesn’t happen without focus, hard work and encouragement. Whether you are trying to model resiliency, master middle management, or give better feedback, professional growth isn’t a journey you need to take alone. Coaching with Jennifer will allow you to focus on and change the behaviors and habits that matter most.
Coaching with Jennifer
As a coach, I help you build essential competencies for personal and professional growth: cultivating self-awareness, managing emotions, leading with empathy, tolerating ambiguity, communicating clearly. If you want to grow your joy and maximize your impact in the face of the “more, more, more” culture, these are the skills that matter.
Jennifer’s Coaching Style
I value curiosity, questions, authenticity and humor.
Coaching is an unfolding process of discovery, not a performance evaluation. I meet you where you are.
Coaching conversations invite depth. I help you explore beyond the obvious and challenge you to try something new.
I help you navigate the messiness of relationships by developing the relational skills you can use across your entire career.
When you get stuck, I help you get out of the Swamp of Overwhelm and find a different approach.
I will always bring the conversation back to where you want to go — so we can work in service of your future.
