Experienced with individuals at the Board of Directors, “C” Chair, Executive and Senior Management levels, Janet assists executives in adopting effective habits of perception and behavior to lead and accelerate corporate strategies. Typical engagements address executive development in the following areas: articulate and inspire through clarity of vision, enable respectful challenge, debate and catalyze synergy for strategic business choices, risk/reward critical thinking about investments and shareholder value, plan leader succession and architect sustainable cultural/strategic change.
With over 30 years of executive experience, both within a corporate setting and as an entrepreneur serving organizations, Janet specializes in times of transition. Executive leaders experience accelerated growth that requires surrender of old habits and beliefs that are limiting in order to adopt an expanded capacity for a long term view of the business and the development of strategies and operating plans that enable sustainable use of both financial and human assets. A systemic approach to change – whether strategically initiated or imbedded to succession and leader development programs – facilitates organizational learning and positive impact on attracting and retaining desired talent. Janet passionately believes in liberating potential in order to maximize organizational performance.
