Jennifer Abrams Consulting provides workshops, keynotes, individual and team coaching, professional development design and consultative support nationally and internationally to public and independent schools, hospitals, universities and non-profits.
In February Jennifer gave the keynote speech "Swimming in the Deep End: What Does It Take?" at the 2018 Art of Coaching conference. Watch excerpts of her speech as well as an introduction by author of The Art of Coaching and founder of Bright Morning Consulting, Elena Aguilar.
In Jennifer's latest video: "Always Start With Empathy", Jennifer reflects on recent conversations with coaches and administrators about the difficulties they have encountered while working with other adults in the school.
Jennifer has published multiple constructive books on conversation. Her books will help you learn to communicate, collaborate and create community within a multigenerational workplace.
"Our conversations invent us. Through our speech and our silence, we become smaller or larger selves, we diminish or enhance the other person, and we narrow or expand the possibilities between us. How we use our voice determines the quality of our relationships, who we are in the world, and what the world can be and might become. Clearly, a lot is at stake here." - Harriet Lerner, The Dance of Connection
“Jennifer has so squarely hit the mark with our teacher-leaders that she is one of the few presenters that they are always requesting when professional development is the question. Here at the University of Chicago, this acclaim and recognition does not come easily! Jennifer has a way of presenting information that gets quickly to the heart of the matter. Her ability to read the true needs of the group, regardless of the original focus, has made her a favorite among the faculty here at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.”
