About Jillia Wharton
Many executives and individuals feel they don't have time or deserve to have a personal coach. But when my clients decide to step forward, they experience a valuable return on their investment. My clients report life-changing, break-through results.
As coach and consultant, I work with individuals and teams to increase what is possible for them. I will help bring out your goals and deepest desires, explore challenges, and quickly transform obstacles into positive change. Together, we'll use somatic coaching and neuro-science techniques which help people access their body wisdom and embody change. This results in new actions, ways of being, speaking, and in the way they interact with others. By using a variety of modalities, we'll discover the hidden beliefs that are getting in the way of the optimal outcomes. It is through this deep discovery that most significant shifts happen.
Authenticity, respect and creativity are at the heart of my work.
I offer 1:1 coaching, team coaching and facilitation, group trainings/workshops, and keynote programs. Training Topics include Transforming Team Dynamics, Conscious Leadership, Mindfulness and Executive Presence.
Having served executives of corporate clients throughout my 23 year career in the financial services industry, my practical business perspective adds to my unique approach. I bring empathy, collaboration, and conscious communication into the corporate sector. My business background combined with my thoughtful and insightful approach builds strong relationships of trust.
Prior to moving into transformational coaching and facilitation, I served as Vice-President and Principal of the San Francisco office of asset management company, T. Rowe Price Group. In my role overseeing and developing the Western Region of Defined Contribution account managers, we partnered with executive members of corporate retirement plan clients on strategic initiatives, investments, and problem resolution. I was an honored pilot member of T. Rowe Price’s Women’s Roundtable which developed high-potential female leaders.
Education & Background
I have a deep interest in personal growth, conflict transformation and global connectedness. In 2007, my heart was touched by the work of Search for Common Ground (SFCG), an NGO that works to transform the way the world deals with conflict — from adversarial approaches towards collaborative problem solving. Since traveling to Nepal in 2008 to see first hand the results of SFCG’s work, my interests have expanded to generate deeper cultures of collaboration within leadership and organizations.
I was raised in Pennsylvania and have loved living in my birthplace of San Francisco with family for over 20 years. My most rewarding international travels include personal studies and non-profit work in India, Nepal, Ecuador, Morocco, and most recently, Thailand.
