“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’s ability to accurately portray and assess my leadership skill set allowed me to clearly see a pathway to improvement. Her intentional approach to measuring and reinforce my strengths and notice weaknesses provided me with the confidence and introspection needed to advance my abilities to the next level. She led the most significant leadership program I’ve experienced in my 20-year military and business career.
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.
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.
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.
“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.”
Vernice Jones unselfishly shares of herself, her experience and her knowledge. Vernice was a catalyst for making my experience at Georgetown transformational.
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.
Hands down the best part of being named a 2019 Obama Foundation Fellow was being connected with Vernice Jones as an Executive Coach. Vernice is brilliant, thoughtful, and has a unique ability to see people where they are, support them in their growth, and build trust that allows a person to not only follow their dreams but live into the power of manifesting them.
She can hold intersectionality honestly and is clearly committed to growing and teaching in a way that honors all people. As a Black, Indigenous and gender non-conforming person, safe space is sacred and hard to find. It is beautiful to know that when I work with Vernice, safe and loving space where I can be whole, is a non-negotiable that sets a platform for me to really understand what transformational leadership is. After working with her, I feel more powerful, centered and most importantly, I have gained the skills to continue to grow into my own power and balance.
