About J. Schmidt Consulting
Jenny Schmidt is an analytics and human resources consultant specializing in three distinct but complementary services. Two of her services are specifically targeted to data and analytics professionals and organizations, while her third speciality offers Insights Discovery® personality assessment training that can serve a wide variety of professions. Jenny offers these services individually or in different combinations.
Jenny is a specialist in coaching data and analytics talent 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 for data and analytics leaders and professionals.
Jenny also consults with human resources and analytics leaders to build analytics capabilities across the organization. She designs systems that impact all levels of data and analytics professionals by developing proper org structures, job descriptions, career ladders, rotational programs, and learning plans that meet the current and future talent needs of the organization.
Additionally, Jenny's services reach a wide variety of professions through her use of the Insights Discovery® personality assessment 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. ”
