EI with Jackson Consulting Group


Tinna Jackson is an executive coach with over 25 years of industry experience, honored with the ‘Top Executive Coach of the Year 2024’ award by the International Association of Top Professionals.

Was there an experience or event in your background that inspired you to do this kind of work?

There are so many reasons, but a flashpoint for me was when I weathered the fallout of a scandal that affected all 50 of my colleagues’ careers.  After years of self-reflection, I realized that what I had been doing on Capitol Hill all along was coaching elected officials and others. That realization helped me find a way to refocus my talents. Today, I help executives navigate complex situations and provide the highest level of professional support by asking questions designed to help individuals think differently and reframe their perspectives.

What’s the most common management pitfall you see in C-suite executives?

Underdeveloped emotional intelligence, or EI, sabotages effective leadership. This ability to recognize and manage emotions, both in oneself and in others, is fundamental to establishing strong relationships and making sound decisions.

What do you see as preventing women in C-suite roles from advancing? 

I hear from a lot of women that the one thing missing in their careers is a sense of support and community from other women. I have created the E3: ElevateExcelEmpower coaching program, targeting women and minority executives as well as emerging leaders.
