ExecutiveCoaches.com:  What are some of the biggest issues that your clients are typically dealing with that cause them to seek an Executive Coach?

Jennifer Jimbere:  When executives or business owners call they know they can improve upon their executive presence, foster more positive relationships and gain a better understanding of their team dynamics to be an even more effective leader. They are going through change and want to build their resilience with an outside expert who can be their go-to when they need a partner by their side. As a high-performer they know the value of continuous development and trust that having someone there to encouraging them, helping them prepare and talk through roadblocks will have them seeing a third alternative that they didn't even know was possible.



ExecutiveCoaches.com:  What experiences lead you to the profession of coaching?

Jennifer Jimbere: I was asked to Coach my staff more than 10 years ago and as a leader I knew that meant ask more than tell, however I did not have a framework. Leaders are asked to be so many things and most times that doesn't come with training.  When the bank made a shift in its performance management and wanted the leaders to coach, I wanted a deeper understanding of the discipline and enrolled in my first of many coaching certification courses. Once completed, I had a deeper understanding and appreciation for the gift of asking skilled discovery questions. Coaching is powerful in all aspects of our lives, both personally and professionally.  As a skilled coach, you appreciate the art of a pause, contextual listening, uncovering possibilities, having the coachee create the plan, removing barriers and having them own the re-cap. Coaching creates shiny eyes when people work from their strengths and are empowered,  my ultimate intention is to ignite a spirit and knowing that you are creative, capable, wise and good!

ExecutiveCoaches.com:  What are your primary areas of expertise?  What makes you unique as a coach?

Jennifer Jimbere:  There are many great coaches in the world today, supporting people to live more fulfilled and authentic lives.  We could all use a partner in possibility. What makes my approach unique is that I use a strengths based approach and leverage proven, action oriented, research based applications from 3 disciplines in every engagement; coaching, change management and positive psychology. I have very high standards for personal development, am a life long learner and am active member of 3 professional organizations: ICF, ACMP, CPPA.


ExecutiveCoaches.com:  What book would you recommend to clients and why?

Jennifer Jimbere: The Art of Possibility by Benjamin Zander.  It invites a shift in perspective.  I have refer back to it many times in my practice and every time it reinvigorates me and those I share its lessons with. There are two perspectives- situation hopeless, what he calls the downward spiral and glorious opportunity, what he calls endless possibilities. It isn't the circumstances that matter, it is what we say about them that matter. Thoughts are powerful and we can decide which perspective to choose.  This book shaped my daily perspective which is “Make it a great day!”
