Jayne Sanders Profile

    • A pioneer in the communication dynamics between men and women, Jane Sanders has decoded the secrets to what women want and demand in the workplace in order to stay put and optimize their talent and contributions. As author of

GenderSmart® – Solving The communication Puzzle Between Men and Women

    • , published in five countries, she has worked with all corporate levels from executives to field personnel for over 17 years.

In the hundreds of conversations Jane has had with executives, recruiters, managers, and female employees, one thing she learned is that when you give women what they want, they give you all they’ve got. Jane’s work offers significant and unique benefits to organizations by 1.) evaluating existing environments, activities, and processes to identify areas for change and recommend specific solutions, and 2.) teaching both men and women at all levels how to give each other what they want and need to do their best work. She not only has a finger on the pulse of gender communication differences and how they impact work environments, but she teaches people and companies how to deal with these differences more effectively.

What are the best indications of the powerful results Jane’s work brings her clients? 1.) Over 95% of Jane’s business is repeat and referral. This very high percentage means that her clients continuously bring her back, and her audience members frequently refer her to other companies and associations. 2.) She receives emails after each engagement from participants telling her how much they learned and how they are implementing her how-to tools for improved business results.

Prior to starting her successful consulting firm, Jane’s professional background included nine years of sales and marketing positions with Carnation Company (now Nestlé Foods). In her first year Jane tripled sales in her territory, and a new product she developed and introduced exceeded its sales goal by +58%. As SVP of account service with an international strategic graphics design firm, Jane secured 16 new Fortune 500 accounts, wrote over 80 proposals during the recession in the early 90’s, and closed over $1.2M of business in 14 months. (This work came on the heels of such esteemed earlier positions during her teenage years as Counter Girl at Kentucky Fried Chicken, research assistant, lifeguard, water safety instructor, bank teller, and university bursar’s office clerk.)

Jane has significant media experience, having been interviewed on television and radio about her areas of expertise. She has also hosted numerous live on-air TV pledge events for PBS, working with other experts and authors including Suze Orman, Wayne Dyer, Christiane Northrup, Andrew Weil, Nicholas Perricone, and others.

Born and raised in southern Illinois, Jane’s Midwestern roots still influence her friendly, approachable demeanor which can disarm and delight at the same time. Hearing an occasional “I’m on that like green on grass and a duck on a June bug!” or “Oh pooey” is not uncommon (although rare in the CEO’s office…but it depends on the CEO!). At the same time, her sharp intelligence of an analyst shines through – by way of insightful observations, sound solutions, and quick wit. In addition to her daily study and research on gender issues, decades of interaction with six siblings and sixteen nieces and nephews continue to contribute significantly to her communications expertise. As a matter of fact, family has recently inspired her relocation from California after 30 years back to her hometown in Mount Vernon, Illinois.

Effective communication between men and women along with retention and leadership preparation of women, take commitment, consistency, and practice. With expert guidance, mutual respect, and flexibility, companies and employees alike can all enjoy success and become GenderSmart!

Jayne Sanders's Speech Descriptions

    GenderSmart®: Improving Workplace Communication Between Men and Women
    Learn and laugh! Both men and women thoroughly enjoy this high-content, educational and entertaining program!

    Communication style differences between men and women undermine effective teamwork, sales results, customer service, and relationship at work and at home. Employees often know conflicts or problems exist, but don′t understand why or what to do about them. Stereotypes, assumptions, lack of credibility, misinterpretation of intentions, and misperceptions of style differences are examples of common problem areas. Consequences of these misunderstandings include confusion, conflict, and sexual harassment complaints.

    Using interactive lecture, exercises, statistics, case studies, role-plays, and a generous dose of relevant humor, Jane teaches audiences with a light, no male-bashing approach how to recognize, understand, and work successfully with the many communication style differences between men and women.

    Get GenderSmart - How To Work With Women for Recruiting & Retention Results
    The economic benefits for hiring and retaining more women have been proven. So how do you get it done - consistently and successfully?

    Jane Sanders, an expert on gender issues for over 13 years, has answered this question and developed a program to fill this significant need. Using data from her targeted research and numerous interviews with women and recruiting managers from different organizations across the country, Sanders has identified criteria for success – what women want and need from their careers, and how to provide it. Focusing on the critical communication, relationship, and management aspects of recruiting and retention, Jane has created a thorough and specific how-to training program for people involved with recruiting and managing women.

    Get GenderSmart: Gender Communication for Selling Successfully To Women

    Why target women? For the huge opportunity, higher revenues, more loyalty, and more referrals!

    Women talk, listen, think and behave differently than men, doesn’t it make sense that most of them would buy differently too? Jane Sanders, an expert in gender issues for over 16 years, has applied her wealth of gender communication knowledge and research specifically for sales people to help them prospect and close female clients more successfully. This is a high-content, tip-loaded program that Jane will customize extensively to fit your company’s needs and objectives. Learn these secrets for selling more effectively to women and how to implement each one. Even if you have good results with women prospects already, you can always be more successful!

    Authentic Leadership – The Confidence Connection
    The most savvy leaders understand that their character and vision spring from their natural gifts and strengths…their authenticity. They know that self-awareness is a prerequisite to their authenticity, and therefore, successful leadership.

    However, as people have aspired to leadership positions, many - especially women - have suppressed their natural balance of feminine-to-masculine qualities, trying to fit into the “man’s world of business.” They get off-track from their natural strengths, and whether or not they realize it, their confidence suffers. Bringing people back into alignment with their authenticity and innate confidence will help optimize their leadership success and improve performance, productivity, and competitive edge.

    In this interactive, high-energy session, learn ways to access and use your natural confidence for effective leadership and career advancement!

    From Stuck To Stellar! - Action Planning for Life & Career
    Would you like to feel more content and fulfilled? Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed in one or more areas of your life? Have you ever wondered if this is all there is? Are you facing a big transition such as divorce or job change? If you answered "yes!" to any of these questions, this seminar will change your life!

    With a plan in place you have a much better chance for a well-rounded and successful blended life. This session will help you create a strategic life plan (SLP) with specific steps for more control in your life, peace of mind, and fulfillment. You will discover your true passions and natural skills, identify goals for key personal and professional life areas, and walk out with part of your plan finished, ready for completion.

    Expect a session with loads of interaction, reflection, and results!

    Persuasive Communication Skills: Skills for Difficult People and Discussions
    Do you often face obstacles and challenges when dealing with your employees, managers, staff, customers, sales team, or other company associates? Do you have trouble convincing them to agree to your recommendations and point of view? Would you like to manage confrontations and difficult questions more effectively?

    This workshop will give you the skills you need to establish rapport quickly and communicate more effectively. With these interpersonal skills applied specifically to common trouble situations, you will be better equipped to avoid conflicts, handle them more effectively when they do occur, and persuade others to hear, understand, and implement your suggestions.

    From Pain to Polish - Powerful Presentation Skills
    Nervous...ineffective...boring. Believe it or not, these words describe many business presentations. Both internal and external audiences, from committee members to sales prospects to shareholders, suffer through what could have been dynamic, results-oriented speeches, presentations, and sales pitches.

    Jane Sanders can make a world of difference in the delivery and results of your executive or employee presentations. With over 20 years as a successful sales and marketing executive, a B.S. degree in Speech and an MBA, Jane has presented to hundreds of audiences, and excels at teaching groups and coaching individuals.
