About Jennifer

Have you ever thought, “life would be so much easier if people came with instruction manuals!” I sure do. In fact, people have always fascinated me. Guess you could say I’m a professional people-watcher. So it’s really no surprise that my career has revolved around the “people” elements of business: human resources generalist, corporate trainer, supervisor, internal consultant to executives and career coach.

These days, I do my people-watching as part of research for my current gig: freelance writing. I write informational and educational articles, blog posts, case studies, and features on executives for clients on the topics of leadership, careers and emerging workplace trends.

I’ve always been a writer at heart. From my first published piece at age 13 (an op-ed piece in my town’s local newspaper) to my latest book project, The Character-Based Leader: Instigating a Leadership Revolution…One Person at a Time, I love the challenge of transforming ideas into the written word.

This blog is about helping you master the “people equation” in a way that helps you figure out how to lead yourself (and others) towards career success. You’ll find brief musings from me (and the occasional guest blogger) on various human relations issues. Topics are typically from the workplace— leadership, personal effectiveness, communication. I also get more “personal” via my Weekend Reflections posts – where inspiration and information intersect. If you want to know more about me, you can check out my professional history on LinkedIn.

You can also follow me on Twitter – @JenniferVMiller, or this blog – @People_Equation.

Looking for professional resources for training, coaching, leadership development or personal effectiveness? Pop on over to the SkillSource corporate website. That’s the corporate arm of my business, where you’ll find research-based, time tested tools such as John Wiley & Sons Everything DiSC®  and The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team suite of assessments that HR and Training managers can integrate into their employee development training programs.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you.
