Jill Goldsmith

Jill’s business-savvy has developed from working as a trial lawyer for national and international clients. She also has education and experience in evidence-based counseling. Jill combines this unique experience and education to identify areas of growth and develop strategies to improve effectiveness, and provide practical solutions to achieve agreed upon goals.

Jill collaborates with leaders and teams, providing ongoing support and holding leaders and teams accountable in areas that include: strategic planning, communication effectiveness, organizational development and role clarity, time management strategies, conflict management, and leadership styles.

Jill believes that leaders seeking coaching to enhance their skills and abilities do not need an “overhaul” or a “make over.” They need a collaborative partner to improve their effectiveness and confidence in their leadership role. Using strength-based approaches, she works as a collaborative partner with leaders and teams to develop larger and stronger toolkits of skills and strategies, so that leaders and teams work more effectively and achieve their goals.
