Ms. Clark's workshops and corporate coaching strategies focus on helping individuals realize their full potential and maximize productivity by accepting a higher level of personal responsibility, including understanding themselves and others at a deeper level with broader perspective.

She has good common sense, reads politics well, has senior level perspective on business issues, a great sense of humor and cares deeply about the growth, development and well being of her clients.

Ms. Clark has a unique combination of skills as a coach; She has had P&L responsibilities, run multimillion dollar corporate divisions, hired, fired, and developed up and coming leaders. She understands politics, internal and external hierarchies, and corporate power structures, which are so important to being successful in business. Janice is as comfortable talking business strategy as she is leadership development and organizational change. Ms. Clark welcomes taking on and resolving the ever present conflict that naturally occurs between intelligent, interesting, sometimes irreplaceable, high powered personalities.

 

In all the corporate positions Ms. Clark held, she was considered an “intrapreneur”, leader, and was responsible for the hiring, development and firing of employees.


She spent the first 14 years of her career on the commercial side of the Oil and Gas business in Houston and London. Janice has experience in exploration, production, pipeline construction, negotiating contracts, transporting natural gas, and running a large natural gas trading organization.
