Janet Crawford

When it comes to human interaction, the fastest way to get from point A to point B is rarely a straight line. Janet Crawford works with smart leaders who know how to articulate ideas brilliantly…and find that's not enough to influence and motivate others in their organizations.

She brings a voracious appetite for understanding how people communicate and learn into both her work as a leadership coach and her own lifelong dance with personal evolution. She believes that people (and organizations) are most effective when they know what they want and have abundant behavioral options for getting there.

Developing those options requires noticing the FULL range of what is communicated, both linguistically and non-verbally. Janet takes clients on a journey of rediscovery, helping them notice what was previously not perceived, but always present. She loves witnessing the moment a client connects that the way someone walks tells a story and the words they choose are not arbitrary, but reveal whole worlds about the speaker.

Janet is principal of Crawford Consulting. She coaches, facilitates, consults and trains high performing individuals and groups, drawing extensively from her background as a Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming. Clients include Cisco Systems, Oracle Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Company, Novellus, Netscape, Sun Microsystems and Stanford University. She holds a bachelor's degree from the University of California at Berkeley in Environmental Science and a Masters degree from the Center for Latin American Studies at Stanford University. She is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.

Janet has a hard time distinguishing work from play. When she's not getting paid by a client, she can be found bicycling or hiking in the mountains above Palo Alto, dancing unabashedly to a good Latin beat, or getting herself into hot water (preferably in the form of hot springs).
