CPBI Saskatchewan (we) would like to thank Jackie for her excellent leadership in creating a strategic plan for our team. Strategic planning can be overwhelming and Jackie provided a logical process making it exciting and motivating. Jackie spent one full day with us where we brainstormed and decided on our key objectives. Her superior knowledge in this area gave us some great ideas! Jackie’s was excellent at keeping us on task to focus on each item through the process. The follow up was thorough and thought provoking. It challenged us to be accountable, set implementation dates and completion dates for each objective. Everyone on council was engaged in the process with an expectation of accountability to each objective. Our regional administrator found Jackie a pleasure to work with which made follow-up and completion of the strategic plan a smooth and successful process. We now have a realistic and achievable 3-year plan mapped out with measures, accountability, and timelines. This plan will be a great help in moving us along to where we want to go. We are excited to implement our new goals and look forward to working with Jackie again in the future.
Prior to working with Jackie, I’d not had the benefit of good coaching conversations. I have to admit, I approached our first dialogue with some trepidation but Jackie soon made me feel very comfortable. I greatly appreciate Jackie’s thoughtful and measured approach. Through her guidance, I have tackled some challenging issues, and also gained valuable perspective on my personal style and approach to problem-solving. I have developed a couple of key “go to” tools that help me reframe difficult conversations, empowering me to move forward more quickly toward solutions. Jackie has been a great asset as I continue to develop my leadership skills.”
I have worked with Jackie for 2 years. She is skilled, thoughtful, sensible and a pleasure to work with and talk to. She has experience in human resources and family business and this combination provides her with unique insight. Jackie worked with me to establish my goals for the coaching session and used those to set parameters as well as generate thought provoking questions to help get clarity and action plans. I highly recommend Jackie to those looking to improve their life and career
