Some executives fail to meet their full potential, not because they lack core competency skills, but because they are missing some communication and management tools. Jenny Schade has proven that she can teach these skills efficiently and effectively.
Jenny helps company leaders and their team members improve their performance, both strategically (how to be more proactive, how to increase employee engagement) and tactically (what to say at tomorrow's meeting, how to write that email).
She works with clients toward specific objectives, with clear timing and performance goals. The majority of assignments are completed within six weeks to six months. Jenny's approach is collaborative, working closely with clients to transfer her knowledge and experience to them, resulting in improved skills.
Her background includes 25 years as a marketing communications consultant for companies that include Kraft, McDonald's, and Baxter, enabling her to improve her clients' overall performance and conduct, as well as their communications skills.
With a Master's degree in counseling psychology from Northwestern University, Jenny coaches company leaders, managers, employees and business owners. She has interviewed more than 1,000 leaders and their employees while guiding organizations through turbulent change. Her coaching includes best practices in communications identified from this research.
Jenny's career advice has been featured on NBC-TV, ABC News, and CNBC-TV, and in Reuters, Brandweek, and Advertising Age.
Areas her coaching addresses include:
- Engaging work teams
- Managing employees
- Interacting with supervisors
- Creating or reorganizing departments
- Conducting two-way communications
- Gaining support for initiatives
"Using Jenny as a sounding board for my business, from new product ideas to decisions about strategic direction, has been incredibly helpful. Jenny is an excellent listener and uses her experience in counseling to hear what I am really trying to say. She combines this with solid business experience to offer advice that is appropriate and meaningful. I also speak with Jenny about how different professional decisions affect my personal life, which is a great way to keep a balance that is focused on my overall goals."
