Our business would never be in the place it is today without Janice’s help.   At the time we hired her as a coach we were a small business with many moving parts that needed a clear vision and “clean up”,  for lack of a better term, if we were going to grow.  It was clear from the get-go that Janice believed in our business and was committed to making it the best it could be.  Her enthusiasm, positive energy, and creativity made the process of change pleasant and empowering.  Janice displayed an uncanny ability to integrate a lot of information from multiple sources and distill it into target areas for business improvement and growth.  She had a good pulse on the social dynamics at play and helped us clarify roles, identify gaps or unnecessary overlap of duties.   With Janice’s coaching we achieved clarity regarding our mission, were able to articulate our vision, and learned how to create organized plans for action.  Weekly meetings with her kept us motivated, focused, and on-target for meeting goals.  If we lost touch with our vision or were low on energy, she brought us back to life.  With her guidance we established systems  and changed the work culture in such a way that allows our business to not only run more efficiently, but provides a more pleasant experience for staff and clients alike. As a result, we are retaining high quality staff are are growing our client base.   We can’t recommend Janice enough!

I am so grateful to have found Coach Janice Baldes. She is truly a kind and beautiful gem! Janice so helped me. She totally got me, even when I wasn’t totally clear on the full picture. She has a gift for bringing clarity that brought me to the forward movement that I needed. I truly can say I feel like me again! Being myself and how God created me, to live out my giftings has brought exponential growth in my life. I am radiating with the confidence that was lost. I have also used Janice for her amazing talents in designing graphics for my business. Janice put glitter on my life and business so it could shine again… thank you! I highly recommend Janice!

The coaching experience I had with Janice really reinforced my desire to run my own agency through State Farm. The questions she asked forced me to put down on paper my plan and goals and how I was going to achieve them.  We tend to down play our own talents, leaving doubts in our abilities. Janice brought out the strengths in my personality and work ethic, leaving me confident through the grace of God that I could accomplish my aspirations to become an Agent.

Janice listened to my rambling dialogue. She collected it, categorized it and then helped frame my thoughts, ideas and concerns. With skilled questioning, she turned my disorganized thoughts into points that I could use to move forward.

Janice was truly given the gift of motivational leadership, compassion and love for others. I have grown so much both personally and professionally through her coaching. She has systems that if applied, can help move you forward in all areas of your life.  She is not only a great listener but has infectious zest and love of life that comes across in her coaching. I am so grateful for Janice and our time together and I do not know where I would be without her love, support and direction.

I am a career coach who works extensively with creative people and their unique career needs. As Janice coached me through my own creative process, her strengths in coaching were evident in every session. She asks insightful, probing, and intuitive questions bringing out the hidden nuggets of giftedness in her clients. I recommend Janice highly for anyone who is trying to define next steps in creative processes, needing business or leadership coaching, or just getting started in a new endeavor. Her superpower is listening and helping clients create a vision for next steps. She also happens to be a delightful human being who brings a winsomeness to coaching around even the most difficult roadblocks.

Prior to working with Janice Baldes, I was absolutely clueless about how to rebrand my business.  Her creative insight, artistic flare, and powerful questions helped me to clarify and envision my brand in a new and exciting way.  She is truly a talented and gifted coach!  If you’re serious about the success of your brand and business Janice Baldes is the coach to work with.

Coaching with Janice was a very positive experience for me. I have never done any kind of personal coaching before so was unsure what to expect, but Janice made me feel at ease and comfortable throughout our coaching relationship. Through activities and assessments I was able to learn things about myself that I had never noticed before which has helped me professionally and personally. Janice was a great sounding board when I was working through difficult issues. Even though I am not 100% satisfied with my current career she helped me to define what aspects I do truly enjoy and to focus on those things. I would highly recommend Janice as a coach for anyone wanting to better themselves.

Thank you, Janice, for all the work you’ve done with me these past months. Your careful listening, thoughtful reflections and challenging questions have all been a gift to me. Our conversations have encouraged me to look honestly at my life and work, to explore my feelings about my past and present, and to look toward the future with a sense of hope. And you  have wrapped all our times together in prayer. I am grateful for your ministry and thank God for your ability to so freely share His love and grace.

From a month of sessions, I am so blessed by Janice’s coaching. She asked great questions, really drilled down to the goal I wanted to achieve and then let me feel how it would feel to achieve that goal. In realizing how I would feel, I was able to fully realize and embrace my goals and achieve them in a short time. When you are feeling overwhelmed with life or your to-do list having a coach to connect with and to allow you to vocalize all your stresses is amazing! Janice was so kind, her prayers of love and support brought me comfort and overall, she was a voice of calm in my corner, helping me become my best self.

Being a visionary, I find it challenging to break down my vision into manageable, working pieces. Janice has been instrumental in bringing clarity to the project and a plan to put the moving pieces together to bring about my vision.
