"Jana’s work with me has been transformative. One unusual mastery she brings to coaching is her ability to help me see my own impact and then build skills that are better aligned with my true intentions.
The most powerful example is regarding my interactions with women in a business setting. Without ever assuming I had negative intentions, Jana was able to point out that the language I thought was appropriate and respectful actually appeared dismissive of the accomplishments and skills women in the group brought to our team. When I reacted with mild defensiveness, Jana helped me step back to examine the impact I was having and clarify my intentions and goals.
I wanted to build increased, productive engagement and foster an environment of creativity and cohesiveness. Instead, I was alienating half the team. As a result of her coaching, her patient insight, and her commitment to me, I’ve been able to transform my interactions with women. I see with more clarity the impact I have and the way I show up in different contexts. I’ve been able to recruit more terrific women to my team and have them feel as full participants in a culture they know values who they are and what they have to offer."
