My purpose is collaborating with my clients to help them expand their vision of themselves and of the world around them! I am in the business of TRANSFORMATION - It brings me immense joy to empower clients to unlock their potential, exponentially expand their vision, and find confidence in all of their capabilities!
My name is Jens Cole and as a Coach, Leadership and Team Effectiveness Specialist, and Conflict Management & Conflict Transformation Expert, I am committed to figuring out my client’s passion(s) & purpose(s), and matching it with an evidence-based process to catalyze growth, positive changes, action, and self-empowerment.
We are conditioned beings - we have learned how to view aspects in our lives; whether it is situations, experiences, conflict, relationships, challenges, career, health, the list goes on. We have learned and been conditioned on how to think about such aspects, how to perceive, how to respond. But more often than not these learned and conditioned responses, perceptions, and thoughts can be ineffective, limiting, and restrictive when trying to live life through our BEST self. Therefore, by having a better sense of self, you allow yourself to access and tap into wonder, imagination, creativity, and willingness to explore untapped aspects of your self, your life, and the world around you.
I aim to remove blinders, breakdown walls, and unlock chains that keep you from achieving/living in your BEST self, discovering your GREATEST potential, and experiencing your HIGHEST successes.
Whether it is through the coaching process or consulting process, I work alongside you and or your team to navigate fears, hesitancies, and road-blocks, that are more often than not, SELF-IMPOSED and focus on facilitating empowerment and a growth-oriented mindset with various methodologies, tools, exercises, and inter-disciplines that I can guarantee will transform you and or your team.
I focus on such various approaches that clients can utilize constantly to recognize and experience amazing, positive effects! My objective is to empower individuals and teams to embrace control of one's perceptions and self-determined impacts in one's life. More specifically, to learn how to change their negative-vision towards conflict, problems, challenges, and issues into Opportunity-Vision of strength, growth, influence and discovery!
We all, as individuals, teams, and organizations, have goals and aspirations, but quite often self-imposed fears and ineffective habits keep us from pursuing those dreams - My mission is to empower and encourage action in your life and in your team, through modalities such as self-discovery, mindset and leadership development, interpersonal communication and conflict management training, goal-orientation, project organization, and character strengthening.
Through an evidence-based system of client-focused empowerment, coupled with interdisciplinary tools and facilitated dialogue, clients will equip themselves constantly with the abilities and realizations that: YOU control your life and ultimately, that YOU control YOUR successes!

My name is Jens Cole, and my passionate purpose is facilitating transformation in my clients, as individuals and as teams. I have been thriving in the world of high-performance athletics for nearly 15 years as both an athlete and coach. As a D1 athlete for the Pepperdine University Men's Water Polo team, I deepened a unique understanding of life perspective leadership, team effectiveness, effective mindset, and personal-balance. As a high-level water polo coach I have been equipped with a powerful skill-set for leading, as well as facilitating the development and transformation amongst individuals and teams. These skills and this knowledge are all directly applicable to life and business, and it is here where my coaching and consulting practices converge with YOU and your TEAM, as a client of mine.
I work in a multi-faceted and flexible way for individual clients, businesses, and teams to systematically and cooperatively inspire growth, mindset development, perspective strengthening, positive change, conflict-transformation, and solution-creation.
My passion and purpose for individual and team transformational empowerment was strengthened through the completion of a Masters in Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management from the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution. It was here where I mastered the power of actualizing the paradigm shift towards conflict and life-challenges, from negative-oriented to positive-oriented, from disadvantageous to advantageous, from a hinderance to a strengthening.
Mastering various courses such as Coaching and Consulting, Team/Group Facilitation, Mediation, Employee Disputes, and Psychology of Conflict Communication, I was equipped with a thorough, expertise-level understanding of subjects and modalities such as personal transformation, leadership development, team and organizational effectiveness, conflict-management and interpersonal communication strengthening.
I want to provide ALL of this knowledge to YOU and or your TEAM!
