Jeffrey Janowitz  Jeffrey M. Janowitz, Ph.D.

Jeffrey has worked in the field of talent and organizational capability for over 20 years. He delivers breakthrough results in Strategic Leadership Effectiveness, Team Effectiveness, Succession, Talent Pipeline Optimization, and Organization Effectiveness. His clients include global technology companies, national and regional healthcare companies, global automotive companies, national financial services companies, and global pharmaceutical companies, among others.

He has expertise working nationally and internationally as well as both internally and externally. Internal roles have included serving as consulting services practice leader for a national health maintenance company in the US where he streamlined a performance management system, coached senior executives and teams, and synergized the change management and program management methodologies. Before that he served as CPD’s General Manager during a period of rapid company growth and was responsible for global operations, which included the establishment of CPD’s corporate presence in the UK.

Jeffrey’s success as an external consultant has been with CPD, Booz & Company, Hay Group, Personnel Decisions International, and his own consulting firm. Among his most formative external accomplishments was the organization, management, and oversight of a virtual team of 100+ consultants delivering a complex suite of leadership development programs, training programs, executive coaching, and consulting following what was, until recently, the largest technology company merger in history. Prior to consulting, he worked as a psychotherapist in a family-systems focused clinical practice where he was also managing partner. He also taught undergraduate psychology for seven years.

His ownership and management experience allows Jeffrey to powerfully connect with the pressures and complexity facing business leaders today – and tomorrow. His strengths include his ability to quickly develop deep rapport that leads to profound trust, his commitment to extraordinary listening – both to what is said and what goes unsaid – and his creative problem solving that produces the largest possible results with the smallest possible effort.

Jeffrey earned a Ph.D. in psychology from North Carolina State University, master’s degrees in clinical social work from the University of Maryland and  Shakespeare studies from the University of Birmingham, England, and a bachelor's degree in writing from Queens College, City University of New York.
