Our success in enhancing the effectiveness and lives of leaders is grounded in what we do as coaches, consultants and leaders, and in who we are as individuals. To be truly present with our clients, our journey starts with the courageous conversations we have with ourselves each day—conversations that ensure we are congruent and able to show up free of distractions or personal agenda. Empowering transformational relationships is our purpose. Helping leaders, individuals, teams, and organizations become healthy and prosperous is our goal.

Jennifer MacLeod, M.ED, PCC – Associate
Jennifer’s work over the past 25 years has been focused on Personal Transformation and Leadership Development. She helps organizations and leaders focus on personal transformation for their people and their development. This has been done in the context of executive assessment and development, coaching, succession planning, leadership development, selection and recruitment and career transition support.
Jennifer’s background includes a broad range of experience working with the public sector and international and private consulting firms in the areas of training and development, executive search, industrial psychology and executive coaching and development.
Jennifer uses a highly client centered approach to work with individuals and organizations. She works with the premise that assuming responsibility is a basic condition for change. Creating that sense of responsibility comes from building awareness which in turn offers choice and control. Her work is built on therapeutic models that focus on the development of human potential rather than evaluating fault or weakness. Jennifer looks to facilitate choice and options for her clients that come from being willing to engage in organizational and self-discovery. She works intimately with her clients to build that awareness.
Throughout her career Jennifer has completed over 1,000 assessments of senior executives in the private and public sectors for purposes of development, leadership coaching, placement, succession planning, team building and recruitment. She has also provided extensive behavioral and career transition coaching.
