I've hired a number of coaches over the past decade - and what I really enjoyed about working with Jenn is her unique ability to combine a heart and human centered perspective with grounded business acumen and depth of experience. She's shared brilliant insight into my blind spots and did it in a way that was both sensitive yet direct - helping me move progressively towards my goals. Jenn is also creative - a quality I really appreciate and sometimes struggle with when I'm in my "business head" - she offered creative suggestions and solutions to challenges I encountered helping me be much more effective, efficient and productive. And she does it all with a great sense of humor! If you're considering hiring a coach, I'd recommend Jenn Lofgren without hesitation. She's brilliant, business-focused, kind, creative, resourceful and fun. I can't think of a better combination!
Leadership today is much more than about doing your job well, it requires an empathic approach, rooted in a firm understanding of the world around us. I've taken many leadership training courses, immersed myself in books and modules but Jenn's insights and approach are unparalleled. Excellence is not an end, but a human desire and co-requisite to success. Jenn's ability to frame the objective, devise strategies and insert the right energy along the way make her stand out. Highly recommended!
When changing careers to that of business owner, it quickly became clear to me that I could use some support in this new role to succeed. Fortunately I was introduced to Jenn. Over the past two years, Jenn has been a source of encouragement, motivation, and support. Her knowledge, communication skills and positive energy have been a great resource for me, and I am grateful to have Jenn in my corner!
I engaged Jenn to help me find clarity on my career path. I had developed the habit of changing positions, accepting opportunities, seeking the next shiny thing without a long-term strategy. Jenn guided me through identifying my values, laying out a life plan and clarifying my key drivers. I use these three elements now when presented with a new opportunity. If it fits my values, in my ultimate plan or support my key drivers, I'm in. Otherwise, I'll pass. I know have the stick by which to measure my subsequent career moves.
Jenn's leadership coaching over the past year has provided valuable guidance in solving problems, creating vision, implementing vision, and growing as a leader. Her advice and guidance, along with her accountability, has been instrumental part of creating a healthy culture within our firm and improving the communication. Jenn has a gift for finding the values that are important to the firm, guiding the vision to support those values, and aligning the goals of the firm with the vision.
Since working with Jenn, I have learned to help my staff develop their skills through effective management rather than doing their work for them. Our team has grown much better at bringing solutions to problems rather than just the problem. She has helped me work on various types of issues that have challenged me and my business, all with great success. I would recommend her to anyone looking to enhance themselves and the people around them!
Reaching out to Jenn and starting to work with her as my coach was one of the most significant steps forward I have taken in my career. With her guidance and insights, I was able to understand the layers of emotional intelligence and how they could make me a better leader and a better person. Jenn has been instrumental in helping me achieving significant personal and professional milestones, and she was committed to my success all along the way.
As an entrepreneur and owner of a growing small business I needed someone to help create a strategic business plan that was both motivational and realistic – thankfully I met Jenn Lofgren in 2010. With great energy, insight and innovation, Jenn helped my team create a strategic plan, which was then translated into a business plan that has helped my company almost triple in size over the past 3 years. Through one-on-one business coaching, Jenn challenged me to take my business to the next level, while looking holistically at my values and personal goals. Her approach helped hold me accountable, yet left me feeling inspired during and after our meetings. I've referred Jenn and have heard nothing but praise for her talents as a coach and consultant. I would highly recommend utilizing Jenn Lofgren's services for entrepreneurs, leaders, and organizations who are looking to build and maintain business success.
I have worked with Jenn for the past two years. Her advice, coaching, and support are invaluable assets to me on both a professional and personal level. Jenn is compassionate with her approach to help focus on change and self-improvement and awareness. Jenn's positive and energetic approach has allowed me to take an honest assessment of myself and put my goals and aspirations into context for the future. My self-awareness has allowed me to become a much more effective executive, leader, coach and mentor. I can't say enough great things about Jenn, and I look forward to learning more from her in the future.
