Jennifer Maxson had an opportunity to be interviewed by Authority Magazine’s Chad Silverstein on the topic of the benefits and impact of working with an Executive Coach.
Thanks for being part of this series. Let’s jump in and focus on your early years. First off, can you give us a snapshot of your life before you started your career?
Communication, leadership and coaching have always been a part of my life. I am the oldest of four children and have always been involved in sports, clubs and band. Early on in my life I found myself volunteering for leadership roles. In college, I served as President of my sorority, Delta Zeta, was active in student groups, and enjoyed volunteering in my community.
Making connections and building relationships is core to who I am. Looking back, I am not surprised to find myself working in the field of Leadership Development and owning my own organization. I enjoy being part of teams and making a positive impact in the community.
What was it about personal and professional development that attracted you to start investing in yourself? Also, can you share when you started and what your first investment was?
It is important to remember that investing in yourself can happen in many different ways. I have always been curious about other people and their career paths.
