Compass Coaching gives you
private coaching to help you find direction
and get clarity on your next steps,
based on your strengths, wiring, and personality.

We are all too close to ourselves to see ourselves clearly.

We need a compass.

We need a guide.

We need a GPS to illuminate our path.

If you’re feeling alone and confused, I get it.

I’ve been there.

Receiving guidance through multiple business coaches has given me the gift of self-reflection and clear direction to help me make big life and business decisions.

That’s why I love to coach others. It’s a way to give back out of the abundance of what I’ve been given and the transformation I’ve received.

Fall 2023 Quotes for Instagram 3

I'm Jen Hickle

I’ve been a business owner for over 25 years. I am a certified Clifton Strengths Coach, as well as a certified business coach.

I grew my side business (teaching piano lessons) to a 7-figure music school and then sold it so I could focus on coaching and helping others.

I’ve engaged in business partnerships, built a marketing agency from the ground up, and have been hired by other coaches to support their members.

I’ve been helping dreamers, achievers, and creatives accomplish their goals for over 10 years! (All because I help them lead with their strengths.)

My favorite coaching tools are the Kolbe A Index, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, and the CliftonStrengths Assessment. 

These data-based tools give us a snapshot into who you are, what you are designed to do most naturally, and what you should avoid (or delegate). The data will will illuminate what stresses you out, what energizes you, what you do most naturally, where you should focus, and who you should hire to support you.

God has wired everyone uniquely on purpose, for a purpose!

When you dive into WHO you are, you will have a compass to guide where you should go.

Sometimes we get turned around from all the opinions from the people around us and from society, saying we “should do this” and “should do that” and we lose our way as we stumble around in confusion. (I’ve been there!)

The 3-tiered Strengths Assessment will guide you back to who God made you to be, what work energizes you, and how you can best shine your light in this world to make the biggest impact (and income).

Don't just survive! Thrive.

Strategy Session

We'll take 30 minutes together to interpret your Strengths Assessment results, hear about your frustrations, and map out a plan for the future.


Before our call, you'll complete a series of assessments. These tests measure your strengths, how you're wired, and the work you're designed to do.

Next Steps

Together, we will figure out why you feel stuck and you'll get tangible steps to take to move you forward into your purpose.

Your Strengths

As a certified Clifton Strengths Coach, I'll guide through questions to help you see what you are naturally good at and wired to do.

The Kolbe Score

With the Kolbe score, you'll discover how you are designed to work and which settings are stressful and should be avoided.

Myers Briggs

The Myers Briggs personality test will also give insight into what gives you energy and what drains you, how you take in information, and how you prefer to make decisions.

Why does this work?

  • We use proven assessments to identify your top strengths and personality.
  • The Kolbe test and Clifton Strengths test have been proven to be useful tools for career decisions and strategic planning.
  • As a certified Clifton Strengths Coach, I can help identify what you are most likely to find most fulfilling, based on your strengths and wiring.
  • Kolbe shows us HOW you best work and the stressful situations that you should avoid.
  • Myers Briggs gives insight into how you take in the world and how you prefer to make decisions.
  • Together, all of these assessments form a panel of information which will help guide you in your decisions. I’ll interpret the tests for you, much like a doctor running tests and then setting up a treatment plan.
  • Sometimes the assessment results can seem disappointing (or confusing) when you read them. That’s because you are too close to yourself! When I take a step back, look at where you’ve come from, and where you’re going, I will guide you and help you map out a strategic plan that will guide you forward for the rest of your life!
  • I’ve done this for hundreds of business owners. It works. (You can see what they have to say at the bottom of this page.)
  • I’m not claiming to be able to help guide you. I’ve already proven that this works. You just have to say yes.


Armed with knowledge and illumination, you’ll be able to move forward with confidence in your big decisions!

In the first 2 calls I had with Jen, I got actionable, practical information that helped me make decisions to establish systems that have allowed our business to more than double in size in a few months.


Phoenix Rose

I don’t know if anyone has told Jen this lately, but she is so gifted in what she does! Thank you so much to Jen for being the answer to our prayers – LITERALLY AND PRACTICALLY!



Patsy Brekke

In this age of ‘anything goes’ it’s nice to work with a faith-based company that understands the importance of including God in your decisions and thinking!



Fred Goff

Jen, you don’t even know how much of a blessing you are!  God made us all with a purpose and I’m so grateful to have met you!  Your purpose is powerful and honest and I know that God planned big things for you! I’m forever grateful for a coach that can bring me closer to God while lifting me up emotionally and helping to set up systems in my business!


Shawna Morby

Jen walked alongside me personally and gave me courage.  She brainstormed with me. She prayed over me even when I was convinced I didn’t have it in me to keep moving forward.  She didn’t back down from the long hard conversations that someone needed to have with me.  All in all, she has treated me like a close friend, not just a client.

Daisy Gifford

I struggle with anxiety and depression. While most of the time that struggle is behind the scenes and unseen, Jen showed me that you CAN make progress from where you are and that it is okay to work with your strengths and not live in your weaknesses. Now I know, piece by piece, I can get there.


Pauline Meyer

Jen Hickle and her personal assistant are wonderful resources. Within the first month of Jen’s coaching, I have learned and grown so very much in my thought processes.

Jen presented ideas and questions in a way that caused me to consider my business goals. I appreciate her dedication to my own situation and I never felt rushed or set aside.

Less than a year ago I was stuck. I often cried and wanted to give up. I knew I needed to change something, but wasn’t sure what. I soon discovered I was doing way too many things in my life and I made the decision that I was ready to get serious about making a change.

I prayed for the right person who would be able to come into my life and mentor me, as well as give me valuable tools to get things going in the right direction.  Last spring I worked with Jen, and she explained she had once been in a similar situation.  She shared some things she had done to turn that around. Where I once always felt behind, I am now on track and have time to plan for the future of my business.


April Ariza

As a business owner, it is so helpful to make sure that you and your staff are working in their strengths – it makes for happy employees with a better work atmosphere and it translates to your customer satisfaction levels as well. I hired Jen to evaluate my staff and she did not disappoint!  She was able to read and access the hidden strengths in my staff members through testing and evaluations, and then compliment their strengths while playing down their weaknesses.  It was so helpful to then sort out what tasks my staff was best at, and make ALL of us happy and being the best that we can be.  I highly recommend Jen and her coaching!


Cecilia Rowe

Absolutely the best career coaching I’ve had so far! Jen Hickle is extremely modest, but her course itself (coupled with her nearly weekly live group meetings) has set the bar for me! Not to mention her spirit is just something you don’t see in this business. I’ve not only grown my skills, but I’ve grown as a person because of her. I CANNOT recommend investing in this enough, I promise you won’t regret it!


Marta Notarianni

Jen is guiding me to not only who my best client is, but showing me who I am, so I can show up for them as my best self. I know of no other Academy that does this. God creates us all with a unique thumbprint. Jen guides us to truly identify it! It’s a beautiful thing.
