“Our company has worked with Janine Smith and JS Performance Strategies for almost two decades.  In addition to benefiting from Janine’s expertise regarding the Drake P3 platform that has become an integral part of our performance appraisal and associate development program, we’ve also benefited from the leadership training and coaching she’s provided to our teams.  Janine has introduced to us valuable leadership development concepts and facilitated workshops on site to further demonstrate putting those real-life concepts into action.  We have also collaborated with Janine on developing training programs that are custom to our company and culture.  Janine’s ability to build these training programs from a ground zero brainstorming session to full implementation including training materials has made her an esteemed and vital partner for our company.”

Continental has partnered with Janine Smith for the last seven years. During which time, she has proven herself credible and capable in her methods and ability to help select and develop talent that is aligned with our high standards and expectations. Janine’s calm presence and collected approach to coaching business leaders, managers and team members has been incredibly valuable to Continental through the years. Her desire and ability to understand our business model and objectives and align her approach to supporting our talent initiatives is both commendable and rare.

Perhaps one of Janine’s greatest qualities is her subtle yet effective “push and pull” communication style. She has a way of letting you know when there is an alternate, better approach and always delivers that feedback in a nonconfrontational and supportive, forward-focused way. She is a pleasure to partner with and know, both professionally and personally.
