Binational and bilingual, Jennifer has lived and worked in France for more than 25 years. She specializes in helping executives successfully navigate multicultural business environments. Jennifer accompanies her clients as they adapt to new challenges, enhance leadership or transition to a job with global scope. Decoding cross-cultural expectations, using bilingual communications to inspire and persuade, preparing for expatriation, and building strong multicultural teams are all part of her expertise.
Her entrepreneurial American culture has allowed her to create a strong network of top executives, working with them to address both linguistic development and multicultural aspects. To professionalize and deepen her skills, she built on these solid foundations and earned executive coach certification at HEC Paris. Today, her coaching approach goes well beyond language; she takes her clients further to focus on self-confidence and assertiveness, public speaking, international mobility and integration, female leadership, global and multicultural team management …
Her coaching style:
- a positive, non-judgmental attitude using cross-cultural awareness to enhance the performance of leaders and their teams in international contexts,
- an active listening approach that is attentive to the culture and « music » of each client, and the dissonances and harmonies of team composition and interaction.
A trained classical musician, Jennifer uses music as a metaphor for how to coach. She listens carefully for the unique “melodies” of each client, paying close attention to consonance and dissonance, to rhythmic patterns and dynamics that resonate with her. She enjoys being the accompanist for her clients – a support, an energizer and a catalyst, to help them compose and conduct their own harmonies at work and at home.
Jennifer holds dual undergraduate degrees in French and International Relations from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia (USA). She is a graduate of Sciences-Po Paris, a certified Global Executive Coach from HEC Paris, and a member of the EMCC and ICF coaching organizations. Jennifer is actively engaged in charitable initiatives as a volunteer fundraiser, using her skills to steer multicultural teams in fundraising and development initiatives for American and international institutions in France.
