What Clients Are Saying
“I sought out the expertise of Growth Potential Consulting for assistance with developing strategies for improving my ability to effectively communicate and engage with senior leaders. I had recently started a new role which required me to interact with many Senior Leaders across my organization, and was grateful to have an opportunity to work with Jennifer Smith who helped outline a comprehensive approach for ‘raising the bar’ with my communications skills. As a result, I learned more about the importance of focusing on the audience when thinking about the right messages to communicate, and I now have a greater ability to incorporate stories as a way to effectively engage with my audience. Overall, I have improved my ability to communicate with greater confidence and I highly recommend attending Growth Potential Consulting’s many great training programs and would endorse taking advantage of Jennifer’s executive communications coaching expertise for professional growth.”

"Jennifer enabled me to focus my attention on why I was feeling a certain way or responding in a certain manner. Not by dissecting what I was doing, but by prompting me with questions that caused me to self evaluate and discover things myself. The main difference for me now is that I realize I do not have to have all of the answers for everyone. I can encourage and ask questions and coach in a much more effective manner. Another key aspect of this coaching effort was the realization of "what people say is about them" and "how I interpret it is about me". Making that distinction and applying it real time has had an enormous impact on my communication with others. Jennifer's coaching enabled me to see that and more. She is a real gem!"
