I understand what it’s like when leaders question their influence and when teams struggle to thrive. I get it! Leading teams is not easy, but for over twenty-five years I have partnered with thousands of leaders to expand their leadership influence and empower teams to thrive. I can help you to achieve boundless results in:
- Increasing your leadership impact
- Building stronger and more cohesive teams
- Equipping your staff with tailored solutions
If you are a leader who is questioning your influence, let me help you ignite your passion, increase your confidence, and harness your team’s capabilities to achieve boundless results.
Who is Jan?
I’m a leader who loves to help other leaders move forward with great results. I love partnering with leaders from different industries, experiences, and skills to help them overcome obstacles and to create a culture of influence to help other leaders and teams thrive.
I also have a fascination with kangaroos and have over 350 in my collection! No – none are real. I never thought my love of kangaroos would be a part of my professional life but: interesting fact – they don’t go backwards - only forward. Indeed, a red kangaroo can cover 25 feet in a single leap! From that simple discovery about kangaroos, my business brand was launched. My whole goal is that I help leaders move forward boundlessly in their leadership impact and results.

My career progression has not been linear – over my close to 30 years of working – I have worked in nonprofit, Fortune 500 companies, federal, state, county, and city governments…even an amusement park! And I have worked in many jobs - computer programmer, financial analyst, marketing research which helps me walk in the shoes of so many different kinds of job functions and roles. I found my passion of speaking and training and my career in speaking and training was launched.
