The Research-Backed, Proven Method of Executive Coaching For Women to Get Ahead

Like it or not, women are different from men.

We have been raised differently, we feel differently, we lead differently.

The good news is that our natural empathy and the daily skills we use to constantly multitask with our families and keep organized make us natural-born leaders

The programs at SisterSmart tap into your unique strengths as a woman to set you up for success in mapping out your career, leading projects and teams or even entire organizations!

At SisterSmart, we help our clients lead more effectively,  but the difference with our coaching is that you won't spend thousands of dollars and countless hours spinning your wheels using outdated methods that don’t speak to women’s unique strengths. 

Our coaching is available in several formats designed to fit into your busy lifestyle from group gatherings where you learn with other accomplished women, 1:1 coaching and online learning programs using scientifically proven methods that allow women leaders to realize their full potential.

The data-driven teachings in our programs feature the latest insights and methods in organizational development and positive psychology. Our founder and coaches have significant training and have worked with hundreds of successful women in industries ranging from healthcare, law, marketing, environmental science, technology, nonprofit and more.

Many of our clients have gone on to promotions and raises and have mastered the "soft skills" that make them in-demand employees.

About Our Founder- Jill Avey

Before I became a coach, I worked as an executive in the corporate world. I understand the challenges women face as leaders, particularly in smaller-sized businesses.

After starting out as one of the few women beating the streets in office equipment sales, I landed in the ski business. It was the epitome of the "Boy's Club" mentality where women only worked in the clothing part of the business called 'soft goods' or administrative assistants.

While it was a pretty tough place for a young gal to make her way, at this job I met my long-time mentor, who helped guide my career and believed in me at every turn. For example, I have him to thank for encouraging me to apply to one of the top business schools for my MBA.

“I believe we are stronger leaders when we become our best selves and we have the support to learn how to put our skills to their best use.

That may or may not be at the company you are in. But you will only know for sure when you are equipped with the right toolkit.”

Jill received her MBA from Columbia Business School. She brings her product marketing expertise to her work as an executive coach. She is adept at teaching women how to market themselves as leaders in their companies and when being considered for special projects and promotions. 

She is certified Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coaching Federation and certified in Conversational Intelligence® and the Bates Communication ExPI Executive Presence Assessment.

About our Coach Sara Spencer

As a leadership coach for over 12 years at Boeing, Sara saw that health and wellness was integral to leader's success. This led her to earn a Health Coaching certification to help leaders bring more balance into their lives.

“What's unique about the SisterSmart program is that it generates a culture of support for women. Having worked in male-dominated organizations, I realize how important this is.

This allows women to get in the mindset of helping and supporting other women. There are only so many spots at the top so creating this collective support system is critical."

Sara holds a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coaching Federation certification and supplementary certifications in Positive Intelligence®, TILT 365 and TILT Personality Profile, DiSC, Energy Management model, Birkman, Inside Out Coaching, Voice Dialogue, and Health Coaching.

About our Coach Lisa Kollisch

Lisa has worked extensively with international leaders and teams in purpose-driven companies to maximize performance, growth and fulfillment.

With a foundation of fluent English, Spanish and French, she enables leaders and teams to work across cultures in order to access their individual and collective insight, wisdom, and courage to clarify and bring to life their most cherished goals and aspirations.

“When I started my career in the corporate world, I was very idealistic and thought that if I did a good job and delivered high-quality work I would easily move up the ladder.

If I had known then what I do now, I would have sought out a mentor.

What makes SisterSmart unique is that Jill and all of the coaches are helping women become better leaders who lead with integrity.

Today, we need that more than ever.”

Lisa’s coaching background includes leadership coaching, developing high-performing teams, facilitating cross-functional collaboration, and elevating whole systems performance.

She is certified Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coaching Federation and as a Professional Co-Active Coach. She also holds supplementary certifications in Positive Intelligence®, Insights Discovery Practitioner and Ehama Council Guide.

Take The Next Step To Empowerment

“I'm a woman in a man a male-dominated industry, constantly comparing myself to other people.  I was really getting frustrated with where I thought I should be in my career. This whole program has helped me to reframe the way I think about literally everything, improving my work situation and helping me to better define my career path. Working with Jill has helped me to build better relationships in both my work and personal life.”
