Jeffrey Janowitz brings to AIIR more than 30 years of experience working to align talent efforts and actions to strategic business goals, often by creating new talent development and management approaches. His coaching expertise extends to individual, group, team, and action learning coaching.

Jeffrey is known as a fierce innovator and talent maximizer. Having founded two different businesses, he knows the leadership demands to deliver results while under pressure. With great warmth, humor and deep, deep listening, he helps clients find the smallest possible solution that will have the biggest possible impact. His clients benefit from the heightened clarity about goals, options to achieve them, and measuring both success and growth that results from working with him.

He was most recently Senior Director, Global People Development at VMware, focused on Top Talent Development and Succession. While at VMware, he created and implemented a new talent segmentation model based on business-driven capabilities that improved the quality and outcomes of how management thinks and talks about talent. Before that, at what is now Hewlett Packard Enterprise, he was Talent Manager for Worldwide Sales in the Enterprise Group, working closely with global top talent to find their next role in the organization.

Earlier in his career, Jeffrey was Director of Coaching Services at Personnel Decisions International (now part of KornFerry), while also serving as Global Client Manager for Hewlett Packard. He led a global team of 100+ coach colleagues to deliver coaching and other services to accelerate global executive integration and collaboration following the Compaq acquisition. Previously, he was Practice Leader of an internal consulting organization at Kaiser Permanente, coaching senior executive sponsors of major organizational change initiatives.
