    "I use the work I did in Jane's training and coaching in every aspect of my life: my business career, my marriage and family, and sports performance. Even after many years, I still use this training at least once a week."

    "The secret sauce here is seeing clearly through to your behaviors during different states, as well as how people see you and perceive you at different times. My learning about how triggers manifest themselves in my behavior as well as their impact on others was huge. Jane’s approach to getting to the little things that are so big was direct and delivered with compassion at the same time. I recommend this to friends and co-workers as an effective way to improve themselves."

    "I had a strong intuitive sense that Jane was good. She was better than that. I've gone through 4 or 5 leadership programs before and this one was way more personal and directed to me individually."

    "Jane has a natural and very impressive ability to "see" into any situation and provide insight and coaching that is relevant and action oriented. In most cases, she is able to accomplish this in a single conversation making her an incredible resource in the fast paced world of today. She has made me a better leader, a better consultant, and a better husband and father to my family. I continue to rely on Jane as a key partner in advancing my business and my personal life."

High Impact Leadership Coaching

Welcome to Impact Management, Inc.

Jane Handley

You are committed to your people. You believe in making solid investments to both improve work quality and build a successful team culture. You strive to be a great leader and to create a work environment that is thriving, inclusive, and collaborative. And you believe wholeheartedly that people development is critical to performance, work satisfaction, and best use of talents.

However, like you, even the best leaders deal with challenges in team culture, communication and collaboration.

Team members who can’t seem to get along with their co-workers. Executives who struggle to role model and communicate organizational values effectively. Leaders who spend too much time managing conflict and listening to reoccurring complaints. Engagement that suffers despite structural changes and new hires.

When they find themselves struggling to get a grip on the situation, good leaders start looking for answers.

And they come to me.

For over 20 years, I’ve been known as a problem solving, pattern-recognition superpower behind hundreds of teams, and industry leaders across multiple industries including engineering in aviation and aerospace, high tech, healthcare, and innovative science out to change the world for the better.

Click here for a complimentary conversation with me!

Are you facing one of these frequent management challenges, knowing that it needs changing?

Here are just some of the urgent priorities I’ve helped leaders overcome over the past two decades:

#1: It takes YEARS to develop a high-performing team.

But, you don’t have that much time! And, in today’s dynamic and fast-paced work environment, teams can shift and change at a moment’s notice. As a leader, you need to accelerate team cohesion and help them get to know each other so they can work together effectively – and fast.

My unique coaching delivery and frameworks quickly promote team coherence through individualized attention and shared language skills to talk through difficult situations in a productive way.

#2: People seem to be confused about roles.

Interactions on your team need to change and improve, but where do you start? You have some team members that may not be working so well with others. Lack of role clarity and agreement on work performance are frequent topics of discussion. Collaborative breakdowns have led to poor performance. As a leader, you need to figure out how to get everyone on track and support each person individually in the process.

My approach is known as the ultimate shortcut to improving work quality and job experience for every individual on your team.

#3: Energy is being drained by stress, worry, and loss of confidence needed for the situation.

You could be feeling stuck and caught up in overthinking. You might as well take a power-cord, stick it to your navel, and feel the power drain out of your system. As a leader you need to conserve your energy and keep your intellect for creative problem solving, goal setting, and higher performance to meet the needs of the situation at hand.

Clients frequently report their mental focus, attention, and purposeful intent is now freed up, so that their time and energy can be optimized elsewhere.

#4: People are not getting along and frequently ‘triggered’.

Team members are getting under each other’s skin, causing a downward spiral and unproductive use of time. As a leader, you need to be a role model for calm, confidence, clarity and true intent.

What if I told you that, as a leader, 90% of your reactions to other people and situations are not due to external forces but are directly linked to leadership drivers that you can control? It’s true. In over 20 years of experience, I’ve found that a large majority of team distraction and collaborative breakdowns are due to internal mechanisms that can be identified and controlled. As a leader, you need conscious awareness of your own and other’s leadership drivers, and you need to support them to grow in a way that preserves dignity and integrity.

My work is founded on the profound inner discovery of personalized leadership drivers. Leaders quickly see their personal accountability in a new light, and can adjust their influence for the better. As a leader, you need to wear your values on your sleeve.

#5: Meetings show symptoms of collaborative discontent.

Meetings are frustrating, maybe even boring. You can almost predict what each person is going to say and what their stance will be. Though each person may clearly the other person’s blind spot, they can’t see their own. Unaddressed misunderstandings within a team can lead to a downward spiral of negativity. As a leader, you need to interrupt this pattern and be an agent of change within your team.

Leaders count on me to help their people see clearly into their personal Leadership Drivers. You cannot learn this by taking a personality profile or psychological instrument. Personal change requires a deeper understanding.

My programs help teams grow leadership maturity and minimize confusion and lack of accountability. Moreover, my high impact/high touch coaching process offers a fresh way to not only see issues, but to talk about them more clearly and easily.

#6: You have a lot of talent on your team and you want to maximize it.

You want your team to be more energized, renewed, and even more course committed. They need resilience for the long haul. You want them to be excellent role models for those rising up the ranks.

Intelligent and talented leaders need more tools to calibrate their influence and gauge influence on others. The value of multiple group trainings permeates across the organizational culture – one person at a time. Noticeable outcomes of multiple group sessions are increased helpfulness, trust and confidence in each other. Your people will bridge across generations more easily and significantly improve communication.

I work with leaders who need to create meaningful experiences that drive powerful change and collaboration.

Whether you are an industry leader who wants to make a strong team even better, or an executive struggling with team conflict or difficult transitions, I am here to help.
