On behalf of The International Women’s Leadership Association (The IWLA), it is my pleasure to announce:

In recognition of her contribution to family, career and community,

Janine Schindler Is hereby registered as a woman of outstanding leadership By declaration of the Executive Committee of The International Women’s Leadership Association

We live in demanding times! Women are challenged to balance their lives in and out of the workplace, at home and in the community. These challenges require that we establish meaningful collaborative relationships, have reliable resources on an “as needed” basis along with opportunities and options beyond our individual reach.

TheIWLA is dedicated to serving women and facilitating their ongoing personal and professional development, to encourage women to dream big and reach far, to empower you to surpass your own expectations as you support other women to do the same.

Welcome

“The first word that comes to mind when I think of Janine is energy…high, infectious energy…the kind that facilitates success and achievement.

When she responds, I trust what I hear has everyone’s best interest at heart! ”

Coach Mentoring Client,  Attorney

“Janine was my introduction to coaching when I began my coach training at NYU. I signed up for the class to see if coaching was for me and within 30 minutes of our first class, she had me hooked! So naturally, when I was looking for a mentor coach to help me sharpen my skills and take my coaching to the next level, I turned to Janine. Janine brings a wealth of knowledge and years of experience to coaching. She breaks down and patiently explains the most complicated of concepts, all of which are delivered with humor and generosity. Her comments are pithy; she makes you think hard and often stretches and challenges you, while providing a safe environment in which to take risks and grow. In short, Janine is a great mentor coach for those of you who welcome a challenge and are looking for a leading expert in the field in order to inspire you to become the best coach that you can be.”
– A.B. Attorney

Coach Mentoring Client

“I had the privilege of participating in one of Janine’s mentoring groups earlier this year. Janine is as fine, professional and knowledgeable a coach (in my opinion) as one could hope to find. She leads by example and is passionate about imparting her vast wealth of knowledge to others who also want to learn. Janine deftly led us through many valuable exercises and facilitated a safe, interactive group experience where we learned from one another. I walked away from every meeting feeling more confident and in fact was always able to put new skills into practice which made me feel great. It is amazing how much better I have felt about myself as a competent professional ever since. Janine is a pro. I would say that anyone who has the opportunity to learn from this masterful and wonderful lady would be best served to grab it while they can! And by the way…she inspired me so much that I finally submitted the application for my PCC after having procrastinated for over a year. Thank you Janine. ”

Fortune 100 Software Company

“I cannot thank you enough for helping me improve my overall communication skills and executive presence. You know how to make such a positive impact on an individual and I thoroughly enjoyed working with you. I also value your directness plus the numerous examples to get your point across. You also went the extra mile by sending me additional leadership-related information between our official sessions.
The proof of your effectiveness and our great teamwork can be summarized by my manager when he debriefed with us yesterday. He witnessed a remarkable improvement in my executive presence, handling of executives, improved body language, and most importantly the removal of “negatives” in my communication. These improvements are evident as well in the scores from the recent 2-day Customer Executive Summit that I lead twice a year. Sixty-three (63) executives from 49 different companies attended. Out of the 19 sessions delivered by various speakers over the two-days my two sessions were rated in the top-3 with a score of 4.73 and 4.6 out of 5.0 respectively.”
-Vice President, Chief Customer Office

DISC Workshop Participants

” ‘Janine’s tool’ has made me aware of my traits and how they either work with or against my coworkers.”

“I accept and make room for other people’s traits and judge less.”

“Now when I question others’ actions, decisions, etc., I remember where they fell in the DISC and am better able to understand ‘where they are coming from’”.

“I learned a tremendous amount about myself; what and why I am the person I am. It was truly an eye-opening experience.”

“I am better able to understand why those involved, whether on my individual team or not, act and react in the fashion they do.”

“I find myself using the DISC to analyze relationships in general, both personal and professional, which I feel helps me interact more effectively with people.”

Sales Executive, Non-Profit

“I would advocate JAS Coaching for people who know they want more out of life but may need some guidance on how to get it.
-S.M., Sales Executive, Non-Profit

Director, Pace University

‘Amazing speaker, very motivating.’
I enjoyed Ms. Schindler’s energy, enthusiasm, humor, suggestions and advice.’”

-Maxine Sugarman, Director, Co-op Education and Career Services, Pace University

Sales Manager, Telecom

“Janine’s coaching provided me the assistance, guidance and encouragement I needed through my job search. She offered excellent ideas and additional strategies and also challenged me to look at other areas of my life. Her coaching is helping me to bring better balance to my hectic schedule and to bring the appropriate symmetry between my career and personal life. ”

-H.G., Career Transition Client

International Virtual Women’s Chamber of Commerce

“I received words of praise from the expo attendees who were overjoyed at the vast amount of knowledge Janine shared with them. Janine’s style of speaking is educational and entertaining at the same time. She is a woman who can take an ordinary business function and make it extraordinary. Her presence is soothing yet electrifying. I recommend her services whole heartedly. ”
-Jerrilynn B. Thomas, CEO, International Virtual Women’s Chamber of Commerce

Coach Mentoring Client

“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Janine’s presentation. The interactive nature of her program was both informative and entertaining. Personally, I have been thinking of a couple of different directions that I could take my career. Her workshop made me realize that one of the directions ‘looked good on paper’, but would require me to use skills that I don’t enjoy using and are not in line with my behavior style.”
-G.G., Coach Mentoring Client

Senior Executive

“Simply put–Insightful, inspiring, intelligent but most of all intuitive. Janine read me like a book and confirmed desires and direction I was feeling but not aggressively pursuing. She doesn’t finish with a talk but a firm course of action with leads, websites and strategies. Money well worth spending!!!”
-Mike Blicher, Senior Executive

Mentor Coach

“The mentor coaching I was a part of was extremely valuable. As a coaching student at NYU, I was a thirsty learner and anxious for more. Janine was an excellent mentor coach; relevant, approachable and able to give feedback with both backbone and heart.”
-Cathia Friou

Coach Mentoring Client, London, United Kingdom

“I … wanted to say that this course has been incredible. Your training style is authentic and genuine and very supportive. I have always felt encouraged not intimidated and it has built my confidence greatly in an area I was feeling a little inadequate about. I can really go forward now with confidence and know that I have the tools and ability to work powerfully with business owners. Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful gift and enable the transformation through your generosity and skill in training. The course has been a wealth of knowledge and growth and the team have been superb to work with contributing so much knowledge and insight.”
