Targeted at various aspects of the same problem

Work in complex organizations can be demoralizing and deconstructing, while the people who are drawn to it are typically motivated by skill development, self definition, and the desire to build something exciting that is an expression of themselves or their worldview. This is particularly true for knowledge workers. Along the way, various things go wrong or are lost in the “heat of battle.”

Client Feedback

  • 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.

  • One wants to carry out and participate in any project Jean chairs. She is very pleasant and intelligent.

  • Jean is a strong leader. She is a good listener and is disciplined about reflecting back what she thought she heard before moving forward with her advice or observation. It is clear that she is empathetic and equally concerned about the effectiveness of any team member, whatever role they are in (examples: manager, VP, team member).

  • There is never any doubt about Jean's opinions or who is in charge. She has the ability to move either a project or an organization forward.

  • Jean's leadership is very goal oriented. I believe her impact is generally one of fulfillment and overall accomplishment through collaboration.

  • One wants to carry out and participate in any project Jean chairs. She is very pleasant and intelligent.

  • In one word - facilitator. She firmly believes that people are capable to work out their differences by themselves with enough guidance and coaching. This might also become a blind spot - sometimes people are incapable to work out their differences, and need to be told what to do in no uncertain terms.

  • 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 is always knowledgeable, and in control. She always listens to all input and respects others comments.
