Jennifer Askey

Jennifer Askey, Ph.D. is an individual and group academic coach with over 25 years of experience in higher education in the U.S. and Canada. After relocating from the United States to Canada, she transitioned out of humanities teaching and research into coaching and leadership development for higher education professionals. Jennifer’s mission is to help leaders and groups in colleges and universities achieve clarity around the impact they want to have and develop the habits they need to develop to reach their goals. Jennifer enjoys leveraging assessments (e.g., DISC, Emotional Intelligence, Belbin Team Roles, Resilience @ Work etc.) for individual and team clients to boost their self-awareness around key workplace behaviors and motivators. Her work with clients is grounded in the client’s values system and their self-awareness. A core of Jennifer’s coaching philosophy is to help clients establish patterns of noticing and recognition around self-sabotaging behaviors and to choose more resonant and empowering options. Mindfulness and emotional intelligence form the foundation for much of her coaching work, as does an intersectional feminist lens on work-life issues. Jennifer holds a Ph.D. in Germanic languages and literatures from Washington University in St. Louis, she was associate professor of German at Kansas State University, and has taught literature in German and English at universities in the U.S. and Canada. Jennifer continues to develop her own repertoire of skills and reads and speaks widely on emotional intelligence, faculty resilience, and mindfulness. She is a Certified Positive Intelligence Coach and a Certified Professional Co-active Coach, both frameworks that help clients work with their strengths and their values to create the career they deserve.
