Azure Gate Consulting customizes each coaching experience, focusing on your specific needs
I have six years’ experience as an Agile Coach, over twenty years’ experience in project management, is trained in Organizational and Relationship Systems Coaching, developmental coaching, adult development theory, mediation, arbitration, and has advanced workplace conflict engagement coaching. Because of my understanding that our work is the path we travel toward our becoming, over the last thirty years my focus as a consultant and most recently as a coach is both on the specific goals you bring to the coaching engagement and you holistically.
It’s important to note that my style is to support coachees in certain ways that go beyond the hour per week, and this tends to mean that there is “homework.” I may connect you with people to do informational interviews or leader-to-leader conversations. I may recommend books that we’ll discuss. There may be journaling exercises or additional self-knowledge generating tasks such as taking inventories such as SCARF or courage or resilience evaluations. Or you may be working through developing a personal, leadership, or career strategy and plan. It depends on what your goals are and how quickly you want to move.
I’ll be listening, asking questions and providing resources most of the time. You make the decisions. The key thing is your commitment to your own growth and transformation. I’m here to support that.
Jean demonstrates both a high level of integrity and a significant amount of courage. I would judge her to be among the top 5 persons on these criteria that I’ve worked with.
Jean leads by example, modeling the behavior she expects. She is very clear about ownership of results. She is ethical and questions herself and her motives to be sure she is not biased.
Jean’s leadership approach is very straightforward and integrated with her values, so it comes across as coherent. She is direct, holds everyone to high standards (including herself) and is clear about problems. She combines this with broad people, organizational and project skills, so she can also provide detailed support where necessary.
