Improvement Doesn’t Come From Comfort Zones
LEADERSHIP | PRESENTATION SKILLS | INTERPERSONAL INTELLIGENCE
Realize your next level of leadership.
Effective communication opens doors to new opportunities both personally and professionally. Our communication behaviors, both verbal and non-verbal are by default, habitual in nature. Habits are comfortable, they feel familiar to us. You may have asked yourself, “How is it that (fill in the blank) got the promotion, when I have more experience?” There is a strong probability these people have taken action to replace old, comfortable habits with new behaviors resulting in communication that influences.

In the Words of My Clients
Brilliant coach. Verbal and written feedback, came and took video at one of my public presentations. She is adaptable to a variety of styles, so everyone won't sound like a classic TED talk. Most of all, Janell is personable, so it is pleasant to work with her.

Laura Kashul – Executive Coach @ Risesmart
I found tremendous value in Janell’s coaching and approach. She uncovered areas for improvement in my executive presence and presentation style and gave me very clear, realistic and achievable feedback I was able to incorporate right away. Her approach is relatable, non-judgmental and comes from an empathetic place which is critical to this kind of feedback and coaching. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has to give presentations or lead meetings or simply just show up well to others (which is just about everyone!), she will absolutely be able to help you and the ongoing value and ROI of that investment will more than pay for itself.
Lindsay Witcher VP – Practice Strategy @ RiseSmart
I asked Janell to share some best practices related to effective communication with our district leadership team. Janell brought practical communication tools that prompted deeper reflection amongst our leaders. Her approach was alongside of us in a fun yet challenging way. The time she spent with our team made an impact.
Jeff Snell Superintendent of Camas School District
Thank you so much for coming out and being a part of our TT! The time with you was amazing and I know everyone found it very informative and helpful in getting over their anxiety. You gave very useful and attainable tips/tools on how to improve and find a solution for everyone. Thank you!
Janell is an outstanding coach and trainer. Her professionalism exudes through her facilitation, coaching and training. She is a true guide by the side who counsels coaches and supports her participants. She models all the behaviors the programs teach as well as invites questioning and comments. Her students exit her programs with an entire new set of skills and tools that are practical and relevant to their jobs. I would welcome any opportunity to partner with Janell in the future.
Jeanne Tari – Global Head Content Delivery @ Facebook
Janell is one of the best communications and leadership coaches that I have worked with. She has tons of experience working with individuals and organizations of different experiences and skill sets. She personalizes her training to your specific needs and situation. Her insights into my approach and style were extremely useful to me. I liked her work so much that we signed up with her for providing interviewing training to our entire company. Although she wasn’t available during our time frame, she was able to find an extremely able replacement for us. I recommend her highly for both individuals and organizations.
Rhishi Pethe – Head of Product @ ShopWell
Janell is truly exceptional at her trade and helped me become so much better in my interpersonal communication and interviewing skills which I never really got exposed to as an engineer. I’m thankful for the attention she devoted to me, and for the incredible change she has brought to my life. It has been such a pleasure working with her that I even talk to my friends about her.
