Growth Potential Consulting with Jennifer Smith
Jennifer engages leaders as coaching clients because they desire to increase their effectiveness and are not looking to their organization to facilitate their development. Also, she partners with companies who are looking to develop leaders as a way of increasing engagement and retaining talent which drives towards greater business results.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Jennifer Smith discuss the following:
- What are the characteristics of Great Leaders?

She coaches leaders in Fortune 500 companies, medium to small businesses, and not-for-profit organizations. Jennifer taps into her clients’ motivations and passions to help them achieve their goals. She believes that her clients are the experts in their lives and her value is being the expert in the coaching process.

Clients in past sessions have described her style as engaging. Jennifer uses her listening, critical thinking, and coaching skills to ask questions that take clients on their individual journeys while guiding the session towards the objectives.
