Strong organizations require strong leaders with courage, awareness and accountability. JG+A’s offerings in this area focus on helping leaders develop and sustain these core traits. These include:
One of JG+A’s greatest strengths is the one-on-one coaching we provide to leaders. Our approach uses compassion, directness, and support to help clients get to the heart of their challenges, rise to their potential, and take responsibility for change. We help clients see links between behaviors and business results and we share practical tools to support their growth.
No matter how high up on the ladder, leaders need feedback to grow. We help CEOs and top leaders understand how their behaviors and actions are impacting others through 360-degree performance assessments. Then we help them create development plans and support them in meeting their goals.
Training and Workshops
Our “Coaching for Results” workshop focuses on improving the skills of your leaders as coaches, giving participants a set of tools to use on a day-to-day basis as they work to develop their people in a sustainable way. This workshop also provides an opportunity to deepen peer relationships and strengthen cross-group collaboration.
JG+A consultants understand group dynamics and what it takes to develop high performing teams. We work with all types of teams—including executives, cross-functional, virtual and peer-based; newly formed and long-standing; high performing and low-performing. As with all of our efforts, we customize our approach to the specific needs of each situation. Offerings include:
At the heart of an organization’s success is how well its people work together to achieve business results. We help leaders and teams look under the hood to find out what is working well and what underlying issues are getting in their way. Then we work collaboratively with them to increase strengths and find sustainable solutions to obstacles. Throughout this process we help teams see the links between how a team functions and bottom-line results.
Results are created through team connection, understanding, alignment and commitment. Our consultants customize team building events to meet business goals and company culture. Team building can happen outside the office through rafting a river or learning to cook together. Or it can occur during a meeting with an exercise that fosters open and honest communication. We use our creativity to help our clients connect in an engaging way.
Whether facilitating a strategic planning meeting, management workshop or leadership retreat, our focus is helping our clients achieve their goals. We have an arsenal of tools and models that are so deeply ingrained in us that we can enter a meeting or retreat with a plan and yet stay flexible enough to adjust in order to capitalize upon the unique presenting dynamics.

Examples include: Interpersonal Skills Development, Peer Coaching Groups, Giving and Receiving Feedback Effectively, Tools for New Managers, Creating a Respectful Workplace, Clear Communication, Difficult Conversations Made Easy, Managing Conflict Effectively, Scaling Up to Senior Management and Coaching for Results.
Intelligent organizations invest in developing leaders across the organization and think actively about how growth and success impact their people over the long-term. Our offerings in this area focus on helping clients proactively address change and systematically identify and develop leaders:
Drawing on extensive research and hands-on experience, JG+A consultants know how to help leaders manage desired and undesired change. The foundation of our work is an understanding of how people move through change and a belief in the importance of hearing all voices. We have helped clients shift their organizational culture, transition new leaders, manage reorganizations, move to new locations, handle mergers and acquisitions, and adjust to accelerated growth.
Whether it is a month-long program or multi-year initiative, JG+A designs and delivers leadership programs that bring results. We get to know our clients to ensure that the work we do is the right fit for their business goals, their budget and their culture. We can provide individual modules to supplement existing leadership efforts or develop entire programs from scratch. Based on our belief that personal initiative and accountability is critical for sustainable growth, all of our programs challenge our clients to rise to their potential.
