"Direct Insight..."

Jolene does a great job combining personality traits with information about stress, change and communication. The course is well rounded and comprehensive.

She gives direct insight for specific personality traits and provides a great mix of activities vs. learning.

What a great day! It really got me thinking about my management style, who I am and how others perceive me. I valued the feedback from the Myers-Briggs and will be using it to create a better work environment and to be a better leader.

"Become a better leader..."

Jolene was very friendly and made me feel comfortable right away at the Edwards School of Business Executive Education Stress Management Course.  You can tell she loves her job. She is extremely knowledgeable about Myers- Briggs and was very well prepared having the participants complete their assessment ahead of the seminar.  I learned so much about myself and now have a better understanding of my communication style. It has given me the resources to become a better leader and teach my staff to recognize different traits in each other.  It was a pleasure to meet Jolene and I hope I will get a chance to learn more from her in the future

"I have more awareness of myself..."

“Jolene is such a confident speaker and so easy to listen to. You can see that she prepares & tailors her presentations to the group. It was so informative and so many tips and tricks can be taken away; I will have more awareness of myself and others going forward.”

"Knowledgeable and well prepared..."

As a professional facilitator myself, I found Jolene to be knowledgeable and extremely well prepared. The strongest part of her facilitation though, is the almost tangible passion and energy that she brings to the experience. The result was a presentation that was both powerful and fun. I would not hesitate to attend another one of her workshops and would strongly recommend them to anyone.

"Jolene has built my trust..."

Saskatoon is fortunate to have someone like Jolene pursuing this specific corporate niche in the city. Human capital is a major asset for any company, and Jolene has the commitment, desire and attention to detail to help any organization that is serious about improving the productivity of their workforce. I have worked with Jolene directly with two different companies and would highly recommend her as someone who would work hard to make sure any project is done right. I have seen Jolene develop a true passion for Myers Briggs training over the past two years, and have watched her entrepreneurial skills build to the point where she knows what she wants for her business. Jolene has built my trust in the past three years, and I am confident she will be a huge success.

"I have a personal cheerleader..."

Jolene is extremely warm and friendly and is amazing at what she does. I instantly felt at ease; she made the process from the initial meeting through to the follow up meetings very comfortable. I left feeling well informed but not overwhelmed. I feel like I am on the right career path and life path having completed the Myers-Briggs Reports.

 

She was very thorough with the reports and gave me lots of helpful hints. I feel like I have a personal cheerleader along the way with each new opportunity and change happening. She loves what she does and it shows. I would highly recommend her.

"I doubt anyone can do it better..."

Jolene has helped my staff gain a much greater understanding of who they are and who their coworkers are which is resulting in a more cooperative and productive workplace. She is helping me look at my life and business from a very different perspective and is brilliant in how she can work with different personality types; I doubt anyone can do it better!

"Highly recommended..."

 Jolene has been a very popular attraction for our Association. She has spoken at our provincial conference in 2012 and was so well received that we asked her back to do a presentation and a workshop in 2013. Her reviews have been nothing but positive, and she has taught all our members to cope with various personalities, people and their differences. I find myself thinking back to her comments whenever I am dealing with a “challenging personality”. She has really changed the way I, and am sure many of us, think and work with people. Highly recommended.

 

Nadine Schueller

 

Executive Director - SAVT  

“We asked Jolene to be the opening keynote at our SAVT Annual Conference in 2012, partially because she is a Registered Veterinary Technologist, and partially because she came highly recommended. She spoke on the different personality types, and how to deal with them in the workplace. She is a great speaker, very thought provoking, and was very well received with a lot of positive comments. She was so insightful that we have asked her back again to do a half day workshop for our 2013 conference. We can't wait!”

 

Jodi Walchuk

 

 SAVT Conference Coordinator

"Fun, informative and interactive..."

Jolene’s presentation/workshop for our group was fun, informative, and interactive.  She demonstrated dedication to her subject matter (Communication Styles & Stress Management) and how it related to us. Through discussion and the various exercises built into her workshop, we learned about one another’s personality types and how we respond to uncomfortable and stressful situations.  By recognizing the differences in our communication styles, we will work much more cohesively and effectively as a team. 

 

As a personal/professional development activity, I would certainly recommend Jolene to anyone (or any group) struggling with communication and stress management.

"Exceptional speaker..."

Jolene Watson was an exceptional speaker at one of our Management seminars series at Innovation Place. She delivered a presentation on Communication Styles based on Myers Briggs Assessment and participants found the information “very useful, relevant, and insightful”. She provided “applicable tools to put to use immediately” and participants really enjoy her passion on this topic. For those of you trying to improve your business operation and get employees/coworkers to work well with each other, Jolene Watson can definitely help your organization.

"Excellence in everything she does..."

I met Jolene through Toastmasters, first at SIAST where I helped with a speech craft session and then got to know her better as she joined Excel Toastmasters club to continue to learn more communication and leadership skills. Jolene's dedication to improving her skills, honing ones she already possessed and working towards high set goals impressed me and continues to do so. Jolene completed her Competent Communicator, Competent Leader and Advanced Communicator Bronze awards during her time with Excel Toastmasters. I watched her go from determined to succeed to achieving it. She continues to learn, grow and strive for excellence in everything she does.

 

Words I would use to describe Jolene include determined, reliable, caring, full of positive energy, upbeat, professional, trusted, hardworking and enthusiastic. She is articulate, energetic and dedicated to helping her clients reach their full potential. I have been inspired by her as she took the opportunity to learn, improve her communication and leadership skills, add more value to them with other courses and experiences and then put into practice what she learned by forming Clarity Coaching & Development.

"Her insights were valuable and easy to implement..."

We had the pleasure of having Jolene Watson as a presenter at one of our Sask Association of Marketers (Credit Unions) meetings. Her presentation focused on communication styles based on the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator. Jolene is an engaging and informative speaker; the marketing group enjoyed her unique mix of humor and professionalism. Her insights on communication and employee engagement were valuable and easy to implement.

Jolene was so much fun and energetic to work with. I learnt a lot about my type and what I could work on to be a better teammate and friend. She gave great examples which related to real life experiences.

Jolene very outgoing and it was easy to start conversations. She covered lots of areas in a short amount of time and creates a very open and safe environment for discussion and ideas. I took home lots of valuable information.

"It was amazing!..."

We sat down with Jolene and she did couples personality profiling on us. It was amazing! Myers-Briggs is life changing. We are getting to know ourselves and each other as well as our children, family and friends. If you are looking for a gift of any kind or simply understand the value of investing in yourself, Do this! I assure you, you will not regret it.

Jolene is an amazing trainer in typology and a session with her is guaranteed to add value to your life in both personal relationships and career. Thank you Jolene!

 

We will not hesitate to recommend people to take this to improve their overall life.

"I've learned how to deal with my staff better..."

I liked the tips on how to use the information and how personalized it was. She was very thorough as she went through the entire report. I’ve learned how to deal with my staff better, especially Introverts!

"Her wisdom and examples..."

Jolene took the time to get to know our organization and the individuals participating. She has great facilitation skills and was very well prepared with her wisdom and examples; she did a great job covering the material. Our group really benefited from the workshop.

"I feel inspired and grounded..."

I came into the vision board workshop with no solid personal goals for the year, just ideas.  Jolene structured the workshop in a supportive and logical way which helped ground my lofty ideas into solid goals. The resources (vision board, magazines etc.) were amazing! I look at my vision board placed in my room every day; having my plan represented visually is amazing! One glance and I feel inspired and grounded.

"That day has provided incredible results and increasing momentum..."

After hearing Jolene do a brief presentation at a conference in Saskatoon, and thinking how much I wished it were longer, I decided to explore the opportunity of tapping into Jolene as a resource. It became clear after our first conversation that she was a great fit for me, as an employer, and could bring a boost to communication in our office as well as help us learn to enhance the way we deal not only with our own stress but also one another's, in an increasingly stressful industry. We brought Jolene to Manitoba to spend a day with us and what a day it was. Lots of AHA -type moments, for everyone, and things that we all could take away to use both in our work relationships as well as our "real lives". It was amazing how, given we are all very different in our personalities, Jolene's delivery was effective for each and every one of us. That day has provided incredible results and increasing momentum even months later. Jolene is still a huge support for me as I learn how to manage in a very different way that I am used to and we will continue to work with her at every single opportunity that may arise. I would recommend Jolene and her Team Building Workshops to every single person who has to spend their days working with even one single other human!!

"She is a tremendous facilitator..."

The consultation was very personalized; Jolene provided great coaching throughout the process and the results. She is a tremendous facilitator that is genuinely interested in her clients success and getting the most out of the results. Her enthusiasm for helping one understand how they 'tick' is infectious. She was also very accommodating to our busy schedule! She is definitely in a career she is passionate about; we would highly recommend her.

"Jolene's passion is contagious..."

Jolene has a welcoming & outgoing personality that creates a relaxed atmosphere for learning and communicating. Her ability to adapt to individual personalities & translate detailed information to her clients in an easily digestible way was invaluable for the Clarity Coaching and Development process. She makes the whole experience both fun and relevant to each specific client.

 
Jolene's professionalism combined with a obvious passion for what she is communicating is contagious! The information provided was in depth and informative. I now have a greater understanding of "why" I do what I do - where my natural strengths are and what skills I can look to develop in the future. 


Participating and learning with my partner took it to a whole new level. Jolene really helped clarify our unique approaches to various aspects of our lives enhancing our connection and overall relationship.


Through this experience we have a greater understanding of ourselves and how we make a more effective team! 
Thanks Jolene!

"Very professional and passionate about her work..."

"Jolene prepared and guided me through the Myers-Briggs profiling. This was very eye-opening and fascinating to understand my own personality type and all the various personality types. The reports really helped me better understand my dealings and relationships with others in the workplace as well as on a personal level. As a result I ordered additional reports and guides to gain further knowledge. This has been very beneficial.

 

Jolene is very professional and passionate about her work. She is extremely supportive and positive in helping both individuals and groups increase their self-awareness and create positive change. I would highly recommend Jolene for both individual development as well as team development and would recommend Jolene for any speaking engagements you might be considering."

"Achieved my life long goal..."

 

"I have been trying to get into veterinary school for the past 7 years. Before I sought help from Clarity, I was lost, hopeless and on the verge

of giving up. Through Jolene Watson's coaching I was able to pinpoint my strengths and regain my confidence that was lost over the past rejections.

 

She was able to make me aware of my areas of weakness and showed me productive ways to improve not only my work performance but also my communication skills. Her help dramatically improved my interview this year. Instead of being a nervous wreck, I was able to truly show the interviewers who I am; in addition, I was able to joke and make them feel comfortable.

 

I am now accepted into my dream school and achieved my life long goal. I highly recommend Clarity Coaching & Development to anyone who is wanting to gain interpersonal and communication skills, to advance in work placement, or to attend a dream school. All you need is some coaching from Clarity and you too, can achieve your dream."

"Nothing but great things to say..."

Jolene was fantastic at our Admin 2 Admin conference event where she spoke on Stress Management. Jolene was fun, energetic and kept the audience engaged during our session. We really liked how Jolene related stress management back to the personality styles we learned on Day 1 of our conference. The group had nothing but great things to say about the time they spent with Jolene. Thank you again for a great presentation!

"Full of life, wisdom and positive energy..."

It is so interesting how thorough and intricate the Myers-Briggs report is and how much one can learn about one’s self by doing such an exercise. Jolene is full of life, wisdom and positive energy; she is so resourceful, and provided inspiring explanations and ideas to ponder. She is tactful, consistent, extremely professional and engaging. She has helped me tremendously with figuring out myself and how and why I operate the way I do in my parenting and in my relationships. I am very thankful and appreciate her services greatly.

I valued learning about personality styles because it is 100% going to help us work well together. I also loved how my styles is not black and white and how well everything was broken down.

Keep being you :)

"Interaction from all participants..."

I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your Mastery Networking Workshop that I attended a few weeks ago.  It was informative, fun and not only beneficial for networking, but also other life situations in the business world, as well as personal.  You are very knowledgeable not only on networking but all the other workshops that you offer. You are always well prepared on your topics and able to adapt to any length of time required.

 

I was impressed with the amount of material covered in such a short amount of time for your Mastery Networking Workshop. It moved smoothly with interaction from all participants. There were two exercises, in particular that really stood out for me. The one exercise, I have partially done in the past but I loved how you expanded on the benefits and usage of it. The other exercise I found personally challenging and will try to pay more attention to those details while I am out and about in my networking world.  Although, I could see how that information would also benefit in daily connections with family and friends, as well.

 

Thank you for broadening my knowledge of networking, Jolene! I will definitely recommend you.

"Highly Recommended..."

I have always been fascinated by personality profiling, but Jolene took it to another level. Her reports were so thorough and her deep knowledge of the types was incredible. I thought I was going to learn about my career, which I did, but it opened up so many other facets as well.

 

The #1 thing that I will take from it was learning how to communicate with, and understand other types. The knowledge I have gained is priceless, both in my personal and professional life.

 

Jolene is such a joy to work with and be around. She has an endless wealth of knowledge, and I look forward to learning more from her.
