center conscious leadership

A better human experience for a better business outcome

Connecting people on a human level to create thriving cultures that achieve exceptional results.

the heart of conscious leadership is trust

Trust is the foundation of all relationships. With this foundation of understanding and compassion, brave conversations take place that free up innovation and the ability to adapt to change.

 

HIGH PERFORMANCE CULTURE

The emotional connection employees have to the organization makes a crucial difference for your customers and your bottom line. Create a culture of belonging and inclusion by cultivating trust.

HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS

When everyone on the team is clear about what they’re doing,  why they’re doing it, and committed to achieving the team’s goals, the team is aligned. This level of alignment can only be achieved when there’s a high level of trust in the team.

AGILE LEADERSHIP

Creating an agile workplace can only be done by flexible leaders. Help leaders increase their leadership agility by improving their ability to develop trust with their team members and colleagues.

Leadership can emerge from any position and produce powerful results.

Whether you are a seasoned leader, a new leader or someone responsible for developing leaders in your organization, anticipating and responding to changing conditions is becoming increasingly complex.

Today’s business environment feels more volatile, uncertain and ambiguous than ever before. Navigating a way forward feels draining for many leaders because you are trying to strike a balance between:

  • Motivating individuals on the team and doing what’s best for the whole team or organization.
  • Honoring team members’ need for collaboration while being true to your competitive spirit.
  • Promoting consistency with structure and processes but also being open and flexible to alternative approaches.

You want to be on top of your game without burning out or becoming disengaged, frustrated or disillusioned with your career or life.

What you want is not taught in school. It’s cultivated through reflection and experience as a way or state of being rather than skills learned.

Learn to lead from a place of unadulterated confidence and clarity so you make clear, powerful choices in the midst of chaos and change.

What you want is to be a Conscious Leader.

I’m here to empower both leaders and teams to cultivate a conscious business culture.

The Roadmap to Becoming a Conscious Leader

The Programs and Retreats I offer guide you along this roadmap with expert strategies and tools and support you in reflecting on your experience and developing that new, more powerful, way of being so your leadership can be strong and effective.

Programs

Transformational leadership development anchored in conscious business practices

The sole purpose of these programs is to help leaders create trusting and caring cultures that inspire others to new heights, promote engagement through meaningful connections and foster innovation.

Emerging leaders and mid-level leaders in need of developing their ability to conduct pivotal conversations, lead teams, and drive organizational change. Programs are ideal for those who:

  • Are quickly gaining greater leadership responsibility because they get stuff done…but now find themselves in unchartered territory
  • Have exceptional potential but haven’t had the benefit of strong mentors or professional development
  • Are quick-thinking and passionate about their ideas but struggle to get others to acknowledge the value of their contributions

Leaders explore the inner and outer domains of leadership presence that include relationship with self, others, and the organization. Each tailored program includes the support of assessments, experiential learning exercises, action learning groups, asynchronous and synchronous learning activities.

Leaders….

  • Gain a clear and in-depth understanding of your leadership style
  • Develop the ability to readily relate and connect with others, particularly those with differing personalities, backgrounds and values
  • Increase your ability to adapt to new situations and successfully manage change

Organizations….

  • Develop greater leadership capability to lead and drive change
  • Achieve greater accountability and accelerate the achievement of business goals
  • Increase the number of engaged employees who are aligned with the company’s mission, values, and objectives

Tailored programs employ an across-time approach typically ranging from 6 – 18-months. The structure provides ongoing reinforcement to support the way leaders internalize new concepts and develop skills through real-world practice, personal reflection, sharing with others and promoting personal accountability.

The following programs may be offered as stand-alone solutions or integrated into a larger leadership curriculum.

  • Communicating with Influence & Integrity: Cultivate Your Leadership Presence & Trust
  • Coaching Skills for Leaders
  • Understanding & Developing Your Management Style
  • Developing Emotional Agility
  • Cultivating Healthy Teamwork: Five Behaviors of a Team

Testimonials

“I’ve always believed I could be a good leader and knew I could do more but before I began the leadership development program I didn’t have the credibility or respect of others within my business unit. Jenna helped me unlock my potential by getting me to reflect on so many things that I wouldn’t reflect on. She also helped me focus on the positive instead of negative and I now notice how my mindset has shifted in ways that allow me to constructively engage in pivotal conversations. I really feel that I’ve been able to get through challenging situations in a better fashion as a result of the coaching I received.”

Gareth Mapp

Business Development Director, Smart Solutions Recruitment

“Over the course of my career it’s been challenging for me to get my peers or upper management to listen and “buy in” to my ideas. I was frustrated not having the influence I really wanted to have to help move NSF’s mission forward and wondered if I had hit the ceiling of my career potential. Participating in NSF’s leadership development program and working with Jenna one-on-one helped me recognize development opportunities that really needed to be addressed before I was able to accomplish my goals. Since working with Jenna and completing the leadership program, I have been able to work more effectively with others inside and outside of my department. I’ve gained more respect from my direct reports, peers and senior management. I’ve also noticed more people seeking me out for advice and feedback. This allows me an opportunity for greater impact and influence. As a result, opportunities for me that weren’t there before have opened up.”

Darrell Williams

Group Leader Inorganic Laboratories, NSF International

“As an emerging leader in a department that had recently undergone significant change, I needed to figure out how to tap into root causes quickly and effectively. In working with Jenna, I learned how to strategically attack pressing issues and tasks in the least draining way possible. I discovered that some of my energy drain was because I was flexing outside my comfort zone and personal work style. Jenna’s coaching approach is the perfect blend between active listening with compassion and direct feedback when you need to hear it the most. I have many colleagues who have worked with Jenna, all with very different work styles, and they’ve all had similar success with their coaching sessions. If you are hesitant at all to open yourself up to coaching, Jenna is the perfect coach for you. She has a unique way of making even the hardest conversations comfortable.”

Annie Labut

Managing Toxicologist, NSF International

“Jenna is clearly skilled at creating a safe space, crafting open-ended questions, and distilling experiences into tangible insights. I walked away from my Wisdom Walk coaching profoundly changed–not only in thought, but with valuable insights integrated into my whole being. I highly recommend this experience for anyone in search of personal and professional growth!”

Shonda Moralis

Founder, The BEA HIVE

“Jenna’s coaching is exceptional: She listens deeply, reflects thoughtfully, and sets the stage for safe exploration and discovery. Jenna skillfully helped me gain clarity around an issue I’ve been struggling with, and with that, opened doors to so many other possibilities I hadn’t even considered.”
