Manager, Leadership Development Services
Jan Stoffer has a clear goal for every program she teaches: that participants leave with a solid plan to work on whatever challenges brought them to her. Jan says, “My classes are very interactive. I draw people out. Their personal experiences – good and bad – in the workplace become the framework we use for everything we learn. I take theory and make it practical.”
Her gift for helping others “connect the dots,” plus a long career as a successful entrepreneur, make Jan a tremendously effective instructor. She draws from experience that started at age 12, as she swept floors in her family’s successful business, through her career as cofounder of a successful electronics firm (later acquired by a Fortune 500 company) and an audiovisual production company. Even today, she owns and operates a small business, in addition to her MRA work.
An MRA instructor and performance coach since 1994, Jan is known for helping organizations to:
- Improve the work environment and decrease legal risk through anger management programs targeted at employees with established attitude problems.
- Groom employees to take on more visible and credible communication roles – both internally and externally – through presentation skills training.
- Equip new managers with the tools they need to fully engage and motivate direct reports through the Principles of Management series.
- Continuously improve employees’ skills through the Creating an Engaged Workforce (for senior managers) and one-on-one coaching in the areas of leadership, communications, and presentation.
Jan earned a B.S. in education from Brigham Young University.
