Professional background

Before transitioning into coaching, Jeff had an extensive career in various corporate environments. He spent 15 years working in the technology and human capital consulting industries. During this time, he held business development positions with companies such as Hewlett Packard Asia/Pacific, Cincinnati Bell Information Systems Intl., and Russell Reynolds Associates. His work took him to different locations, including Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Coaching expertise

Jeff embarked on his coaching journey driven by a profound interest in aiding others in their pursuit of improvement in areas that matter to them. His coaching style is direct yet courteous (often humorous!), supported by strong interpersonal and cross-cultural skills. Jeff’s clients are typically CEOs, Managing Directors, Senior Partners, and their teams, who ask him to support them in the areas of leadership development, team communication and collaboration, cross-cultural competence, and balancing the needs of headquarters and local operations.

What we say about Jeff Hasenfratz at Turningpoint

Jeff is a deeply-reflective person, perhaps due, in part, to many years of taichi practice.  He is also service-oriented and tolerant, as suggested by his work as a volunteer and internal counselor with a Shanghai mental health hotline.

A (great) international coaching and transformation consultancy, committed to developing authentic, innovative and collaborative leadership in executives and entrepreneurs, their teams and organizations.
