The Challenge: Tom hired me as his secret weapon. He wanted to build his book of business, become more innovative in his marketing approaches, set up a system to bring and keep clients in the pipeline, and serve his clients better with a more efficient system.

Our Solution: Together, we set new goals - that were beyond anything he’d previously attained - and learned new ways to meet them.

Tom enjoyed having someone in his corner to encourage him when he needed it. I worked with him as a strategist – and held Tom accountable for making the progress he desired. He learned how to "language" his marketing – both with individuals and presentations to groups.

The Results: Within two years Tom had the book of business he wanted. He had deepened his relationship with his family and had a system in place to continue adding the ideal clients to his base. As he progressed, we set up a system to keep him organized. He’s much more efficient and effective at what he does. Now he checks in on a monthly basis to stay on track.

The Challenge: Bruce is a CEO who joined the Navy right out of high school. He had a natural ability to be a leader. Shortly after his Navy duty, he started his own company and in no time was burning the candle at both ends. Bruce’s "John Wayne" image of himself as "The Lone Cowboy" permeated his actions.

It was a big decision for him to reach out to me because he had always been the one with all the answers. People in his company and family looked up to him.

His problem was he had several million dollar deals on the table and was stuck. He felt frozen in place. He knew what needed to be done but wasn’t moving forward.

Our Solution: Our first step was to identify his top values and needs - Family Life, Nature, Achievement, Recognition and Solitude. He committed to honor these values and needs…..something he hadn’t done in the past.

One of the reasons he had been feeling stuck was because his needs were being neglected - his life was out of balance. His fingers were in too many pies.

Together we worked on delegation and trust.

Once Bruce started getting his needs met, he felt more confident. He was able to "come un-stuck" and face the challenges head-on.

The Results: Now he has completed those million dollar deals and has several others he is working on. In addition, he spends time at his ranch where he can have quality time with his family and enjoy the solitude and time with nature he desires. Living by his values and getting his needs met have allowed him to step up to bigger challenges in his business and life.

The Challenge: Melissa was a 30-year-old attorney unhappy and disillusioned with life. She woke up every morning asking, "Am I in the right place in life?" Her confidence level was at an all time low. Between her position in a small law firm and her marriage, she was not getting very many positive strokes. She joined various committees in the Junior League, American Heart Association and other charities as a way of getting positive strokes. These activities kept her busy three to four nights a week.

Our Solution: Through the coaching process Melissa gained tremendous confidence by addressing not only her career but her marriage as well. By defining her best year ever, she recognized the need to make some changes.

The Results: A large, prestigious law firm approached Melissa and she accepted a position that more than doubled her salary. She also started marriage counseling with her husband and became more assertive. Within the first year in the new firm, she was able to pay off her student loans with her bonus and now she is sharpening other professional skills.

The Challenge: Paula, a research PhD, wanted to move up within a teaching hospital. She wanted to work on her people and presentation skills as well as her impatience. She felt she lacked the executive skills she needed to interact within the top levels of the hospital system. Also she sought national recognition and industry exposure for her work. She wanted to keep all options open for future positions. A tall order.

Our Solution: We have been working 1-½ years in areas ranging from Paula’s organizational and "people" skills, to her values, patience, professional image, time management, leadership and presentation skills.

The Results so far: Paula has been promoted three times, accepted a Vice President position at a major hospital and is recognized as a national expert in her field. In addition she has received excellent comments on her presentations from the hospital presidents, national meetings and the hospital board. Patience is now part of her daily life and has served her well in many situations.

Chris was a recent Law School Grad…
Michelle had been "Downsized" out of a job…

Both were looking for the best possible position for their unique skills and desires.

Chris’ Challenge: Chris had just graduated from Law School. He knew that his first position could set the tone for his career. He had been looking for a job but had not found what he was looking for. He needed help and direction with his job search.

Michelle’s Challenge: Michelle’s company had downsized, leaving her without a job. She had been looking for a job without success. Michelle had used the outplacement services from her company but wanted something more personalized. She had come to the realization that she wanted a position she could enjoy – where she’d get a sense of fulfillment by using her unique skills and talents.

Our Solution: Both Chris and Michelle took the Birkman® Assessment. It highlighted their strengths and the types of companies they should be seeking. It also pinpointed what their needs were so they could find out ahead of time if the company could meet their needs. We role-played for interviews and set up a system to get interviews.

The Results: Both Chris and Michelle obtained jobs in companies that would best accommodate their needs and talents. While each of them had felt isolated searching on their own, they both appreciated the support and encouragement Jeannine provided every step of the way. The insights revealed by the Birkman® Assessment helped them focus on their unique needs. Both Chris and Michelle are using these insights as they move ahead in their fulfilling new careers.

The Challenge: Jennifer had been practicing for 14 years at the same institution where she had completed her residency.

Our Solution: Jennifer needed to move out of her comfort zone which was a big step.

The Results: Jennifer is growing as a professional and has gained the respect of her new colleagues and hospital. Change was challenging but she took baby steps to make the transition easier. She is settled into her new job, city, home and marriage and is open to future possibilities.

The Challenge: Michael left a larger law firm to build his own practice which grew rapidly. He brought in another attorney – Chris whom he knew from the legal arena. Chris brought along his book of business and things looked good. Within a few months, Michael and Chris got frustrated with each other because they each had a different communication style.

Our Solution: Both Chris and Michael took the Birkman Assessment and we requested the compatibility report called Differences to Watch.
