ABOUT JAN HILL |
Consultant, Facilitator, Coach, Speaker, Course Designer
“A coach needs to be able to touch people with new possibilities and bring wisdom, compassion, and humor to the issues and problems they face.”
– R. Hargrove
Jan feels that there is no greater honor than to be asked to assist someone on their journey through life. She understands the importance of having her clients set the goal, pace and direction of the coaching engagement. They lead based on their needs and interests while she supports their exploration utilizing an engaging variety of assessments, approaches and experiences. Most importantly, she listens.
Jan brings wisdom gleaned from a myriad of personal life experiences as well as insights based on over 20 years of coaching individuals and teams at the crossroads. She helps people turn breakdowns into breakthroughs.
“Jan was my link to sanity as I made the biggest transition of my life–and I would recommend her to anyone who needs an ear and guidance during a time of great personal change.”
– Carolyn Baana
A consultant is an experienced individual that is trained to analyze and advise a client in order to help the client make the best possible choices.
Jan’s experiences as a sales leader at Procter & Gamble, combined with her worldwide consulting practice have given her the ability to quickly assess a situation and help clients envision potential solutions to the issues that challenge them. She realizes that time is money, and that clients desire real world approaches that generate results.
As a strategic thinker, Jan is skilled at understanding the complex systemic, interpersonal, economic and cultural challenges that plague today’s organizations. She is particularly adept at working with leadership teams who possess the desire and commitment to make a long term “legacy” contribution to their organizations.
Jan does not waste time. She dives deep to the root cause of an issue and will help your group face it. I am constantly amazed at her ability to get a team of people to acknowledge the “elephants in the room” and then work with the group to resolve those big issues. She has a real knack for building rapport and making people feel safe so that everyone can share and be honest in a group setting.

Jan is the co-author of Smart Women, Smart Moves and is engaged in the arduous process of writing her next book about major life transitions.
Smart Women, Smart Moves now in paperback! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to buy the book.
Co-authored by Jan Hill with Dr. Vanessa Weaver, this book takes a provocative look at how women can gain control of their careers-and get the recognition and rewards they deserve.
Many women feel strongly committed to the company they work for, putting in long hours and enormous effort. But many don’t get recognized or rewarded for their work. So what’s a smart woman to do?
Smart Women, Smart Moves presents a provocative model that takes the five types of relationships a woman has in her personal life and applies them to her work life. Understanding whether she is just “dating”-or is “girlfriend,” “mistress,” “fiancee,” or “spouse” to her company-will help her assess how much her company is committed to her. Weaver and Hill offer readers advice on how to:
- identify which stage of the work relationship they are in
- view this relationship from their company’s perspective
- explore their personal values, beliefs, and principles
- decide whether to stay where they are-or move on
The book also includes women’s real-life success stories, self-assessment tools, and relationship-building exercises.
Weaver and Hill know whereof they speak. Veterans of a Fortune 20 company, each found her niche-and greater reward. Smart Women, Smart Moves enables any woman to do the same.
