Jacquie Stephens, MBA, RCC, PCC
The power of coaching and teamwork was presented to Jacquie early on in life through school and community sports (fastball and basketball). That landed her a full athletic scholarship at the University of Central Oklahoma. There she completed her marketing undergrad (BBA) and was awarded Academic All American, a prestigious national recognition for excellence in athletics and academics. Since then, coaching has weaved through every aspect of her professional and personal development.
When she got her first big leadership role as the General Manager of an explosion proof heating company, her Dad, a Supply Chain Management Executive, recommended (strongly) that she use his business coach. Experiencing first-hand the massive impact of having a coach, and being a coach in sporting and working realms, she founded her own consulting firm in 2005. In her practice, she aligns industry knowledge and leadership experience with brain based coaching and trending teachings of neuroscience on behaviours and habit formation.
Certified in Myers Briggs and neuro-coaching, she shares the tools to measurably improve the performance, communication, relationships and leadership skills of her clients. The combination of her background in high performance teams, her MBA in Strategic Planning and Organizational Effectiveness, and being trained as one of North America's lead instructors for SAP's HR academy, offers diverse vantage points on team dynamics and leadership development.
