One of the smartest, most honest, courageous, and caring people… I came to know Vernice Jones as one of the smartest, most honest, courageous, and caring people I have had the pleasure of working with. Vernice’s guidance and support allowed me to explore new dimensions in my leadership which significantly increased my ability to foster change and achieve results. I have no doubt that I would not be where I am today as a leader without her caring support, thoughtful insights, and skillful guidance.
Vernice is an engaging, thoughtful and insightful professional with exemplary skills in talent development and career coaching. I have personally witnessed her command of large group training and individual one-on-one coaching. In fact, she provided me with invaluable personal career coaching using tools such as the LPI 360. Yet, it is her innate ability to process qualitative and quantitative data and apply the interpersonal dimension of real-life dynamics to provide a unique coaching experience.
Vernice gave me the help I needed which turned out to be different from the help I wanted. I run a small business and came to Vernice focused on prioritizing tasks in alignment with immediate results and long-term objectives. Vernice brought clear thinking, strong suggestions and creative interaction to our conversations. Her insight and incisive questions uncovered root challenges and unleveraged strengths, which provided clarity in revealing a critical path to achieving my goals.
Gifted, insightful, leadership development coach and architect. I have worked with Vernice on a variety of projects over several years and am always thrilled with the results. I have had the opportunity to see her coach others and be coached by her myself. I am always amazed at her innate ability to “uncover” the real issue at hand. I have also worked with Vernice on creating a First-Manager training program. Vernice built the program from the ground up instilling competency-based learning and individualized coaching. Her creative and out-of-the-box thinking made the program a huge success with hundreds going through the workshop.
Vernice took us on a journey that enabled us to openly explore and assisted us in becoming clear on our objective. Her great listening skills and direct communication style created a space to expand into direct perspectives. We are excited about implementing our learning.
Driven, practical, no-nonsense, passionate… I engaged Vernice to work with me on a project that I had been envisioning, but hadn’t given time or focus. Through her keen listening and insightful questions, Vernice inspires me and helps me think of aspects of my project in a way I hadn’t before.
Outstanding course developer, facilitator, instructor and coach! During the course of a year-long executive leadership program, Vernice provided solid, relevant and effective executive training and coaching for 16 Emerging Leaders at our company. Her depth of knowledge on topics ranging from effective communications to successfully navigating in the executive ranks set our Emerging Leaders on a path to success.
