Jennifer Selby Long
Jennifer Selby Long, Founder of Selby Group, LLC, is an executive coach specializing in helping you become the leader you want to be, accelerating strategic alignment, and transforming management teams. After 10 years in organizational development and learning & development, Jennifer started her firm to help leaders, teams, and companies thrive in a fast-changing world. Though it wasn’t broadly accepted at the time, she could see that the long-worshiped approach of performance-driven leadership was beginning to crack. It simply didn’t mesh with changes in culture and the shift to a global workforce. Ironically, it didn’t elicit the best performance, either. This inspired a deep, ongoing study of how leaders can do both: get great results and build a dynamic, resilient, emotionally mature, inclusive and lasting organization. And it’s more relevant today than ever, as multiple crises and changes unsettle lives and businesses everywhere, and the remnants of old control-based leadership behaviors quickly fall apart in a world of remote and hybrid work. Jennifer has coached and developed over 3000 leaders and professionals, in organizations as diverse as Silicon Valley start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. Her clients include leaders at such highly regarded companies as Ciena, Airbnb, LinkedIn, Cisco Systems, and Mozilla, as well as the leaders of numerous small companies and start-ups.
