Hey Leader, we hear you!

You’ve read the trendy books and taken leadership programs. You’ve spent big bucks on the big names.They gave you theory, but not the application.

And now you’re feeling more confused than ever trying to piece together all the concepts with YOUR team, on your own, with no help.

LeadWell is a 10 month hands-on leadership program that will transform your leadership and help you empower your team with ease.

Press play and take a peek inside LeadWell!

IMAGINE

...what it will feel like when you are more proactive than reactive, figured out how to help your team thrive, without exhausting yourself and you are planning ahead with ease every day.

Being able to practice with a group of people that I don’t know has helped me to become more vulnerable in being able to go through the uncomfortable situation of learning something new.

Jen S. VICE PRESIDENT, MARKETING

Executive Coaching is an art form, requiring the very special skill of helping the client arrive at, and take ownership of his/her own conclusions. Within that art form, I know of no artist more skilled than Jen Bertsch. Her positive energy and outlook is highly contagious, and she “keeps it real” by helping her clients focus on what concrete actions they can take to positively affect game-changing outcomes. Life is short. If you want to think differently and actually do differently, I assure you that Jen can help, and will help you to become whatever kind of leader you want to become.

Mark K. Senior Leader, Information Technology

If you want to talk and talk but never really get anything accomplished, don’t join Jen’s program. When it comes to straight talk, Jen is a whiz. She is clear, concise, and incredibly insightful. Jen creates the space for you to be your best self, and then she fosters that into something more than you could have ever imagined. Ready to make a real change? Jen’s your gal.

You’re ready to develop your team, but you’ve got a lot of questions!

“How do I make time for this when I never seem to get caught up?”
“How do I really “empower” my team? I try and it doesn’t work well.”
“How do I get my team to follow through on the tasks I delegate?”
“How do I get them to think about solutions more when they keep bringing the issues to me?”

  • “How do I make time for this when I never seem to get caught up?”
  • “How do I really “empower” my team? I try and it doesn’t work well.”
  • “How do I get my team to follow through on the tasks I delegate?”
  • “How do I get them to think about solutions more when they keep bringing the issues to me?”

I know, there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you are working to help humans perform at their best. If you aren’t being intentional, it can be easy to communicate the wrong message, get off track from your vision, and never make the kind of progress you want to make.

Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all!

That’s why I created LeadWell, a winning combo that builds leadership habits that stick and help you develop your team.

Everything You Need
to Take Your Team from Good to Great.

What's Included

Participants meet for LeadWell Lab, at 8:30am CT every other Wednesday. During this virtual group session, you will get coached, watch other leaders get coaching, practice using coaching in leadership scenarios. Discuss & implement strategies to lead your team to sustainable results that increase revenues. 
And always have Q & A time with Jen.

This has been and continues to be the all-time favorite piece of the program.

Participants receive an additional opportunity bi-weekly to get pre-recorded input from Jen and the team by submitting specific how-to questions on topics like:

  • Having difficult conversions
  • How to blend coaching with mentoring and/or training
  • When to integrate coaching
  • Developing onboarding and training standards
  • Delivering effective leadership development meetings with your team
  • How to implement the different styles of leadership for tricky situations
  • Planning and executing successions plans
  • Helping your leaders work in their full potential

Your LeadWell curriculum includes three high-level courses: Personal Mastery, Coaching Skills for Leaders and Integrating Coaching.

Courses include downloads, checklists, numerous tools, templates and videos all curated and tested by Jen and her clients over the past thirteen years. LeadWell participants have exclusive access to the all three courses throughout the ten month program.

Hit the ground running with a 1:1 onboarding call with one of our coaches to help get started on the right track.

Reaching important milestones in your development will help assure you are applying the leader-as-coach skills. They ensure you will see the difference in the results you get from yourself and your team.

Review results and build next step action plans during these 1:1 milestone calls with one of our LeadWell coaches.

Leadership development is about more than taking a class or two. Sharing insights with your fellow LeadWellers will open your eyes.

Realizing that you are not the only leader who struggles with those tough conversations is freeing.

Ask all the questions, receive feedback, share observations and so much more.  
This is THE space where leaders have the freedom to practice vulnerability and up level their personal leadership.

Join us in this unique space for leaders.

I could try out skills, experiment with them and then go back to LeadWell, learn from others and learn from Jen. It created a great feedback loop that really worked wonders. It accelerated and increased my learning.

Dietrich W. Health Services, Owner/Chief Visionary & Coach

“Leading a sales team of six, very diverse, highly-driven, and achieving sales people was so much more difficult before I started implementing skills and using the tools I’ve received from LeadWell. I no longer dread the difficult conversation, and I am able to coach my team out of their habits or behaviors that may be holding them back. With the knowledge and techniques I’ve gained from LeadWell, I’ve been able to create a more productive team, personally and professionally, by focusing them on what really matters, and raising awareness about important facets of their life that affect their work, like their emotional intelligence and work-life balance. I’ve created a safe space for them, which has built trust in my leadership and the organization. They know I consider them the quarterback of their own team, and because I’m an empowering leader, we get more done, and we’re all happier doing it.”

Wendy Regional Vice President in a $1.7 billion software firm

Before I started working with Coach Jen, I was at a “stuck” point in my business. I was working hard, but continually coming up short on goals and growth.

 Jen directed me to think things through for myself and arrive at my own conclusions versus always giving me advice or telling me what she thought was best. The big key that I was missing was focusing on the right priorities. I realized that I need to really care more about my team’s success then I do about my own. This approach has helped me to grow much stronger over time. My business has grown by over 30% and my income has doubled!  I would highly recommend anyone that would like to improve their results in any area of their life to work with Jen in LeadWell.

Our primary audiences are business owners, CEOs, or senior leaders who are responsible for the team and their development. If that is you, then this is an opportunity you should consider. 

Leadership development in the form of leader-as-coach training is a top trend in coaching. It gives leaders a great foundation for communication that is highly engaging and empowering, which are two key factors in growing organizations. 

Our participants are typically focused on increasing their ability to work ON the business instead of always IN the business, while growing revenues.

  • Employee disengagement

Practice Makes Permanent

Every other week, you get the chance to employ what you learn through observation, practice, and firsthand experience.

The real-time LeadWell Lab is a unique opportunity to discuss and practice your leadership skills in a mentoring situation so you can improve on the spot!

My ability to problem solve and work with people has increased exponentially. There are always moments now of “What would Jen do?!” when something comes up. In LeadWell I’ve learned to ask open-ended questions that lead others to their own solutions. I now see the value of coaching for myself and the value of coaching others as part of leadership.

Calyssa H. Executive Artistic Director

Coaching isn’t a thing that happens. It’s a way to view the world. The skills I’ve learned in LeadWell helped boost employee engagement from 83 to 88% and grow our assets from $45 million to $65 million in two years. As leaders we often think “we should just be good at it” or that we should just “figure it out as we go”…but if we do not have the right mindset, nothing will change. Now in a time of unrelenting, wild changes to our businesses and lives, it’s smart to get support and guidance that will help us adapt our mindset so we can lead ourselves and others to greater success.

LeadWell Alum Shayna

Jen’s coaching goes far beyond the expected goal setting and accountability keeping. She has helped me think about my business goals more creatively and dive into solutions without fear. Jen’s style urges me to reach goals and become a more effective leader of myself and my teammates. Every LeadWell Lab brings out brave new ideas and challenges that I can now embrace with confidence. I recommend LeadWell to leaders who are ready and willing to grow, knowing it will get uncomfortable along the way…and when it happens, Jen and her team will have your back.
