Jennifer Mercier is one of those people who makes friends easily. She has a sincere, caring nature.
Jennifer is a results-oriented, hands-on training and leadership development professional with experience in coaching individuals and teams. She has been effective in continuous improvement in leadership and organizational development that results in high performance organizations and an employer of choice culture. Experience includes manufacturing, academia and service industries.
She firmly believes that while innate abilities are useful, leadership can be learned and improved upon. Her diverse background has afforded her the opportunity to gain perspective on many environments and company cultures.
After 22 years in both manufacturing and service industries, Jen finally took the leap to leave her corporate position and follow her true passion, coaching and facilitation beginning with directing the Leadership curriculum development at Lawrence Technological University, continuing with the culmination of her career as Executive Coach and Professional Facilitator. The transition was easy as her natural understanding of people, instincts, intuition and talent for relationship management have allowed her to easily display her passion and belief in leadership, organizational development, and executive performance improvement.
Part of Jen’s journey has brought her across the path of the Aha! Leadership team which has served over 100 clients in a wide range of industries throughout the Midwest including: Financial, Franchise Food, Legal, Automotive, Medical, Insurance, Veterinary Medicine and Manufacturing. Jen and Aha! Founder, Robyn Marcotte, knew right away that their complimentary styles would make a great team.
Jen’s values of integrity, respect, and making a difference in people’s lives are what ultimately led her to where she is today. She is very active with her family, her husband Vince, and her two youngest sons, Sean and Matthew, who are both very involved in sports in their hometown of Lake Orion. Her oldest son, Joseph has taken residence in Silicon Valley, CA working for Google. She feels blessed to have such “richness” in her life, both personally and professionally.
