Who We Serve
JAS Leadership specializes in career development serving the analytical leader, that is, individuals who instinctively concentrate on left brain success. We recognize and appreciate how systematic, methodical processes and approaches have brought them to a place of career success.
We also understand that to sustain that success and/or progress and take it to the next level of leadership, it is necessary to also develop right-brain skills that have been under-valued, neglected or avoided. Since many on our team have traveled the same road, we know how to take the discomfort out of this next level of progression. We have years of experience in business coaching developing the whole brain expansion so vital to becoming an effective leader of not just teams, but initiatives.
Our focus is to help transform, for example, the analytical engineer, technician, IT/systems analyst, accountant, medical employee, operations person, quantitative analyst, arbitrageur, and doctor into a dynamic professional with exceptional people skills. We bring to our clients a history of success in showing leaders how to proactively manage projects as well as groups of productive employees to create vibrant teams of motivated and engaged go-getters.
