Coaching

“Jean has a talent for pulling apart the threads in a knot, and then facilitating a thoughtful examination of how those threads could be woven differently and what kind of fabric they will produce as a result.” ~ Zoe

Strategy and Collaboration Coaching

As a certified NLP Coach with a degree in Philosophy, Jean Russell is highly sensitive to the subtleties of language and gesture, discerning where shifts can be made and asking powerful and challenging questions enabling transformation while holding a warm comfortable space for discovery.

“I appreciate Jean’s keen insights on how people behave and why they do what they do. I’ve seen her bring clarity to situations that had been long befuddling to those involved, and I’ve seen her unlock the potential in people who were trying to find their way. In all, Jean’s a great coach, an empathic teacher and a relentless network weaver.”

“Jean is a remarkable coach and strategist. We discussed possibilities for a book project I’m thinking about, and Jean took my thinking to an entirely new level, placing a future book in the context of a multi-year strategic plan. As we discussed this, we also bounced around different potential foci for the project and the ways that these would affect my overall lifestyle. Jean has a talent for pulling apart the threads in a knot and then facilitating a thoughtful examination of how those threads could be woven differently and what kind of fabric they will produce as a result. Her skills are tremendously useful to businesses looking to dive into new projects and individuals who want support thinking through their own strategic plans.”

Jean’s been a lifesaver for our NGO startup. Her interventions and coaching helped us survive staff changes, test strategies for building our organization’s financial health, and turn *ad hoc* work into defined workflows we manage. Perhaps her greatest accomplishment was helping two leaders with vastly different communication and work styles learn to adjust and accommodate each other.

Jean’s a rare and joyous talent, with adroit social skills, an analytic and critical thinker, and a friendly, blatfarb-free attitude. Her playful humor, self-awareness and integrity encourages her clients to live likewise. We’re eager to get on her schedule again.
