Coaching Philosophy

leaven /ˈlev(ə)n/ def.: To permeate and modify or transform for the better

JeanAnn’s coaching philosophy stems from a passion for “leavening the atmosphere”. Leaveners, such as yeast in bread, create pockets of light and air that allow surrounding material to expand, stretch, and attain superior texture and flavor; similarly, JeanAnn holds space for each of her clients to rise to new challenges and produce extraordinary results. Through an holistic, forward-looking approach, she works with clients to enable them to achieve a rich, rewarding life and career.

How Coaching Works

Elite athletes leverage coaching to fine-tune their technique, build fitness, and gain insight into their strengths and weaknesses as competitors. Business leadership coaching delivers very similar benefits. A professional coach will guide you through productive self-reflection, help you identify current habits that may be impeding your progress, and work with you to develop a concrete, actionable strategy for reaching your full leadership potential.
