Some leaders are born that way.

Most are made.

You know that executive on your team, the one with plenty of talent, but with a little “something” missing? They’ve undoubtedly got a lot going for them, but for one or more reasons, there’s something standing in the way of their next phase of leadership and responsibility.

At Impact First, we work with high-performing professionals at pivotal points in their careers who are committed to mastering the mindset, skills, and behavior of life-changing leadership.

These men and women are recognized by their firms as emerging leaders, high performers, partner candidates, or otherwise eligible for more senior roles.

They are engaged, curious, and open-minded individuals who take initiative and personal responsibility for the growth and success of their clients, firm, teams, and self.

Our process is practically guaranteed to get them to the next level of leadership, through master classes in executive presence and personal brand that have a profound effect on raising their professional profile.

I have never had a “Coach” in my 30 year business career, and never realized the benefits that would result from a fully engaged series of sessions with Jenifer. The key is that you only get out of it what you put into it. I successfully employed Jenifer’s “pause” techniques which reduced my reactionary approach to issues. Statistically, she prompted me to address more the symptom of issues rather than reacting to the problem itself. In many cases this has resulted in strengthening supervisor performance (the root of the problem it turns out) driving a stronger organization, rather than castigating the line employee. Prior to working with Jenifer, I would get frustrated with bad decision making. I now work to prevent the next bad decision by doing my own coaching and educating, thus reducing the chance that I will be again frustrated by yet another bad decision. Jenifer has not only impacted my behavior, but the ripple effect of her coaching has been felt throughout the organization.

Working with Jenifer Madson has been a defining moment in my professional career. It has been an unbelievable experience to work with her; she tailored her career coaching program to fit my need. She has a great personality, cares deeply about the work she does with her clients and is genuine in her approach to every situation. Her insight, dedication and integrity are second to none. Jenifer has helped me not only in my professional life but also in my personal life— I look forward to working with her in the future.
