About J Schmidt Consulting
Jenny Schmidt is a coach, trainer, and consultant who works almost exclusively with analytics leaders and professionals to grow themselves and their team.
Jenny is a professional analytics career coach focusing on the non-technical aspects of the job. She utilizes a goal-based coaching program to create “ah-ha" moments and break-throughs in personal development.
Jenny also consults with human resources and analytics leaders to build analytics capabilities across the organization through a process of Strategic Workforce Planning. Planning the talent of the future requires being intentional about recruiting, org structures, job descriptions, career paths, rotational programs, and learning plans that meet the current and future talent needs of the analytics organization.
Additionally, Jenny’s services reach a wide variety of professions through her use of the Insights Discovery® tool. This training introduces teams to a common language they can use to identify their strengths, communicate preferences, and recognize the value each member brings to the team, enabling individuals and teams to perform at their highest level. Jenny facilitates workshops to introduce these concepts and strengthen the understanding between team members or between different teams, resulting in an increase in effectiveness and their ability to work together.
"Jenny is very good at staying quiet or gently guiding me to think through things on my own, holding back what I think would be a natural instinct to say, ‘You should do this ...'
She made me feel like I had the answers inside me ... I knew what to do ... and she helped me see that by leading me through the strategic thinking. ”
