Janet Williams Hepler

Creative inspiration comes from anywhere. What inspires and sustains me are the opportunities to get outdoors, make music, tackle new challenges, and collaborate with others who love to learn and explore possibilities.  

I am a professional coach who partners with clients to explore ways to tap their strengths, develop professionally, lead authentically, and cultivate high-performing teams. 
At the heart of my coaching is my conviction that work is too important to be dull, boring, and energy-depleting. I work with leaders who are ready to challenge the status quo. My clients bring their experience, vision, ideas, and curiosity. I bring deep listening, optimism, curiosity, and the ability to draw out insights from the patterns I observe.  Together, we identify creative options and outline paths for change, and test those ideas with experiments in the real world.
In my role as associate faculty member of SeattleCoach, I partner with leaders by developing them to become great coaches. I also provide mentor coaching for coaches applying for or renewing their ICF certification.  

I have a Master’s in Industrial Organizational Psychology and hold certifications in the Leadership Circle Profile, Personal Directions Inventory (PDI), Individual Directions Inventory (IDI), the Leadership Effectiveness Analysis (LEA),  Conflict Dynamics Profile, Teams that Work Plus and the WiLD (Whole Intentional Leadership Development) Toolkit.  I am certified Professional Coach and Mentor Coach.
