It’s been a wonderful journey of professional and personal growth working with Jayne as an executive coach. I have been working with Jayne for the past 3 years in my current role as Executive Director North American Regional Supply for AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. Jayne has helped me genuinely understand and identify my strengths, those things I am naturally better at, and apply these in a professional setting with outstanding results. Our sessions are action packed and to the point. Jayne is a superb listener and quickly grasps the current challenge I am working on. Regardless of how frustrated I may be, Jayne’s calm and upbeat coaching provides positive assurance and instant clarity on a better approach or solution. I highly recommend Jayne and her team of executive coaches; you will not find a better executive coach or company to work with in this area. Jayne and her team not only make you a better professional, they make you a better person.

Excellent work! Good insights that helped us define our value and to build our “power base” and development strategies for professional growth and career development. Telling our value stories and discovering our goals and seeing which path to take. Churchill’s powerful questions really made us think! I loved it and the concepts stuck!

It was such a positive and uplifting experience. I’m able to walk away with powerful insight and practical very helpful tools for resume writing, interviewing and LinkedIn. I gained insight on the importance of using this time to re-discover my strengths that I can put to use for my next role.

Our leaders agreed they left the training with new techniques and better awareness when coaching their employees. They wanted wanted me to again thank you for everything you have done to assist with their growth. I continue to hear from the guys that it’s all about slowing down and asking the powerful questions rather than assuming, and it was in their nature to assume, so it was great to hear that sunk in from yesterday!

My Churchill executive coach helped me to focus on what my team needs and to align my style with their needs. She also helped me to make my 1:1s much more productive. I have used the skillsbuilder tools I received in my work with CL to advise my own development plan which has helped me to grow as both a leader and as a person. THANK YOU!

I want to thank you so much for Traci. She’s an absolutely wonderful coach for my leadership development!
Director, Electronic Arts
It is enlightening and encouraging to focus on strengths, being accustomed to an educational and corporate culture that typically focuses on weaknesses. I have spent my entire career wondering how or if I should strengthen traits that I saw in others, that I admired or maybe even despised a little, that I did not naturally possess. This shift in thinking, to focus on who I am and what I am best at, however, is totally liberating. Susan is an excellent coach!
Global Leadership Summit
Thank you so very much for serving as a speaker and judge for the Global Leadership Summit! Churchill was fantastic to work with and we greatly appreciate all the additional support you lent to our speakers and students throughout the preparation and at the summit itself. Your session and the integration of strengths was such a highlight for our students. I cannot express enough the gratitude I feel for you and your team. Thank you again and again for being a part of the first ever Global Leadership Summit.

Thank you so much. I heard such positive feedback about this session and, as I told HR in our one-on-one, it was exactly what I was looking for to help the team. Content, activities, timing, all worked so well – I know we will continue to leverage this learning as our transition progresses and we move forward.

The importance of the leadership program gave me the opportunity and exposure… and has taught me many things, and made me aware of myself and my passion. A special shout out to Churchill for the wisdom and insight in training and coaching. I loved the program every bit of it, and the challenge it possess. It has developed me to what I am today.
PayPal – Global Operations & Engagement
Great stuff! Our team loved the engagement today, always wish there was more. Leaders really resonated with this topic. I had a manager email me on Tuesday, thanking me for the topic as it really helped him to understand his own behaviors and challenges with the feedback he’s received. Today, during the presentation, another manager asked me for the tools – Churchill really had an impact on our leaders.

Wood Group / Ethos Energy – Bob, VP Engineering
What’s exciting to me is my attitude toward my work load. While the work is immense and the expectations are intense, I find myself actually looking forward to working with others in our team to draw on our individual Strengths to get things done. I no longer feel … “I have to do it alone”. The best part is the others are responding the same way. I feel strongly that the Strengths program into which you led us is foundational to us achieving higher goals with greater satisfaction. I believe there are two programs that have given me the tools and motivation to become a better and happier employee, boss, husband, father, brother and fried. They are this Strengths program and my Dale Carnegie training. The Dale Carnegie taught me how to think and manage my thoughts. The Strengths program has taught me what is important to think about and how to best approach my goals. I firmly endorse Churchill Leadership Group, and particularly you, Jayne. I found your knowledge, insight, understanding and guidance to be immeasurable during the program, & I am convinced these attributes contributed greatly to my results.

I believe the engagement of a company’s staff determines whether or not their business is run like a well-oiled ship, and many don’t realize the value of investing in the people who make the wheels turn on a daily basis. But it’s not just about engaged staff, it’s about keeping your business going in the right direction. Churchill Leadership Group’s effective assessment and coaching solutions show you the talent and potential of each of your team members, creating a window for leaders to empower and develop each person within the company. Its a win win and that is powerful.
Jasmine, Price Waterhouse Cooper
Churchill offers a great deal of insight through their strengths and executive leadership coaching. It is evident that Jayne and her team are passionate about their work and helping clients realize their full potential by capitalizing on their strengths and developing a keen self-awareness. Jayne has helped me identify areas where I can make the greatest impact and deliver the greatest value to my clients, my team and my organization, while being true to my strengths. I feel empowered by the results and with Churchill ’s help, have developed a roadmap for continued success and growth as an individual. Thank you Jayne!

Churchill’s Strengths presentation really hit home with students who were able to see the value in being able to portray their strengths to employers during interviews. Students left the workshop ready to take next steps to embrace the Strengths Approach! Jayne Jenkins is a very well-articulated speaker who maintains a strong connection with her audience throughout the presentation, and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to make better use of their existing strengths
Fred, Quality Director, GTE / Wood Group Engineering
If you have not contracted Jayne Jenkins and the Churchill team; then you have failed to take every reasonable step to improve your management team. Jayne shows uncommon insight and is gifted in seeing the strengths of not only the individual but of the team and coaxing the understanding and communication that is necessary for any team to be effective. Jayne has a thorough knowledge of business and its processes as well as business leaders and their abilities and will facilitate the individual’s and the team’s maturation into a formidable presence.
Michael, President, Gas Turbine Efficiency
Our company has contracted with Churchill Leadership Group Inc. and Jayne over 4 years to work with myself and the GTE Teams on recognizing and improving our leadership and management skills. From day one, when Jayne began to help us outline a strategy with the focus on “ our strengths”, I knew we had found the right partner. Whether through team sessions or one on one coaching, each of us has embraced and found value in the tools provided. At the same time, we have improved our internal communications amongst ourselves with even a greater openness, a key to success. There is no doubt Jayne has assisted us in helping to further strengthen the foundation of our business.
Chad, Summit Wealth
Jayne and the Churchill Leadership Group have a rare and tremendous ability to help leaders in many professions unlock hidden talents and undiscovered potential. They motivate teams through the strategic exploration of qualities, roles, and unseen or otherwise unknown strengths. I am personally impressed by the potency of her presentation and, more importantly, the measure of her fulfillment.
Freddie, Manager IT EMEA & APAC, eBay
I have been a people manager for over 10 years and during that time have been on many management courses, however none have been as useful as our Churchill Strengths program. In previous courses I learned new information but often I felt it was trying to make me into something I am not. Strengths has been very insightful and has helped me find ways to accelerate the best of me (and manage my weaknesses) and to delegate based on the Strengths of my team members. This program is an authentic approach to management development and it works.
Dan, VP Gas Turbine Efficiency
Jayne, The personal growth our organization has seen with your guidance, in the short period of time you have been working with us, has been nothing short of remarkable. I believe the biggest area of improvement has been in the area of communication, resulting in a stronger cohesiveness among the senior staff. I am hopeful that we can take this achievement and instill it throughout the rest of the organization.

Jayne and her Churchill team provided great guidance, education and coaching to ensure that the IT Management Team recognized and understood levers to improve Employee Engagement and Communication. They are a wonderful resource and brought tremendous value to enlightening and engaging our team.
Allen COO Infusion Brands
I am excited to write this recommendation for Jayne Jenkins. My work with her has been exemplary. She teaches, inspires and works from a program that is based off of a simple concept – we are all more effective, productive and happier playing to our strengths…and not over-focusing on weaknesses. I found this philosophy and the way that Jayne delivers it, to be very powerful, energizing and instinctively on base. I personally received an immediate boost from the program working with Jayne and she and I have continued to work together. I found Jayne and the program to be so effective, we are planning to implement with our company’s entire executive team. Jayne is one of the most professional and empowered people I’ve ever met or worked with and I strongly recommend her to any individual or team leader that is interested in bringing about transformative and energizing improvement.

I found the Strengths Development workshops and coaching with Churchill Leadership Group to be extremely valuable. The piece which particularly resonated with me most was not only the philosophy of concentrating on your strengths rather that your weaknesses , but also how to recognise what your strengths actually are. In the 1:1 coaching I felt that my goals were understood and we really covered some great ground in identifying positive steps to take to reach these goals. Thanks for all your help.

A Global Leader in Healthcare
As I approached the Strengths coaching session with Churchill, I could not imagine how anyone could focus on my strengths, as I had spent most of my life critiquing myself constantly. While I had always gravitated to tasks that leveraged my strengths, I never understood why. In just 90 minutes, my coach helped me understand the roles where I can bring the most value to my team and what I love to do so clearly, I cannot imagine doing anything else! She kept me focused on my strongest assets – and how to leverage them to make the changes I knew I needed to make to improve my impact. Instead of looking at these aspects as weaknesses, we focused on how to use my strengths to change in these areas. What a refreshing approach! I only wish I had this insight at the beginning of my career and cannot wait to engage my team in better understanding and leveraging their own strength roles. I would recommend Churchill’s Coaching to any executive wanting to improve their own impact and engage their team to improve productivity and business results. There is no doubt in my mind that it will.
H. Rodriguez, President NovaCharge, LLC
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your wonderful presentation and workshop to support of our channel partner conference as guest speaker. I had many partners comment on the segment saying that they had thoroughly enjoyed it and found it “very value added to personal growth and long-term success”. In fact, we ended up going for dinner later on and all of us had a fun sharing what our individual unique “Strengths” were. Success in our business requires a true “team approach” and knowing the strengths of other team members allows us to communicate and work together more effectively. I would highly recommend Churchill Leadership Group as an inspirational professional speakers for conferences where, you want a subject that is going to have a direct impact on individual performance while, at the same time, being thoroughly entertaining.
Rachid CEO Sentinel Screening, Inc
I strongly recommend Jayne Jenkins for any leader looking to get the best out of self, direct reports or overall team.

Julie, Sr Man. Global Enterprise Technology eBay
At this point in my career, as I’ve been working in a specific field (PMO, etc) for a number of years, I found it was very easy to lose sight of my true ‘strengths’ and instead get mired down in the day to day details of ‘the job’ – many of which were not fully utilizing my strengths. The program with Churchill Leadership Group Inc. has helped me to renew self-awareness of the areas where I am strongest and as a result, has rekindled my passion and drive to be the best I can be.
Kathy, Global Enterprise Technology, eBay
Churchill’s gift for understanding people and uncovering their strengths is truly impressive! With personal coaching, my Strengths were given life. I became aware of how I could continue reaching my potential by leveraging my strengths and how my strengths could benefit my team, my organization and our customers. My coach’s wisdom and experience has helped me define a path to become a better leader and contributor. Thank you for the enlightening experience! I look forward to using this knowledge to deliver the highest impact in my career journey ahead!
The in-person Strengths session with our senior leadership team was wildly successful. I’ve witnessed several of those present using the language consistently that we learned and used on that day, and reinforcing their strengths in certain situations. Specifically, our Vice President, which is a huge win for the team!

When I first saw my Clifton StrengthsFinder® Top 5 they sounded “fluffy,” however because of the Churchill Leadership Group Inc. workshops and skill building we did with Churchill I realize how powerful my talents are and that I can use them to improve my team’s work-life as well as my own.
VP Corporate Diversity Strategy & Operations, Sodexo
I have found my Churchill coaching meetings with you to be incredibly empowering. It is one thing to reflect upon the use of my strengths by way of journaling and spending more time focused upon them on my own, but it is quite another thing to have someone witness how I’m using them. This allows me to think and process out loud, to experience my own learning and observations, and to then have that objective 3rd party offer their observations and name for me other ways of seeing how I’m evolving with the work….you’ve done that for me masterfully, and I have found that this has given me energy and refueled my spirit. I am grateful!!! Heartfelt thanks for your mindful guidance & wisdom
CEO Digital Hands
Working with the Churchill Leadership Group, we were able to profile our leadership team’s strengths and better understand where we can maximize each member’s contribution. The workshop was fun, insightful, and changed how we will construct our creative and execution teams in the future. Lots of “ah-ha” moments! And lots more engagement from everyone since!
