Jill Greenbaum, Ed.D., is an innovator, using visuals in her training work and coaching practice. For over 18 years, Jill has integrated drawing into her suite of training programs. Her clients in corporate, nonprofit, government and educational settings have included, the Ford Motor Company, CibaVision, Novartis, McGraw-Hill, Reed-Elsevier, PertroTrin, Siemens Medical, Turner Broadcasting Sales, Inc., Rutgers University, the NJ Juvenile Justice Commission, the Englewood, NJ school district, and the PAST Foundation. JiIl’s practice spans the globe—she has worked in Australia, Canada, England, Jamaica, Singapore, Switzerland, Trinidad, and the United States.
Just over half a dozen years ago, Jill chose to add visual coaching to her repertoire, so she wrote (and drew) How to Major in You and find the right college, infusing her coaching program for teens with visual maps. Since then she has stepped fully into the arena of visual practices to facilitate meetings and record at conferences. In 2014, she designed her own program to teach visual practices to interested teens and adults. In June, 2018, Jill became the US member of the Bikablo Global Training Team. In less than a years time she has shared the Bikablo method with over 100 people on both public and onsite programs, and delivered the session, Integrating Quick & Easy Visualizations into Your Work: Bikablo Thought-Sketching at the 2019 Global Scrum Gathering in Austin Texas.
Jill began her career as a teacher for students with special education needs in New York City public schools and became a principal and administrator. Her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in child psychology and special education (respectively), and her doctorate in curriculum development, from Teachers College, Columbia University, form the foundation of her work. She is also a graduate of CoachU, Martin Seligman’s Authentic Happiness Coaching Program, and attended Christina Merkley’s programs, Fundamentals of Interactive Graphics and Magic Marker Mastermind. Jill is a past member of the Board of Directors of the International Forum of Visual Practitioners.
