A Few Words from Jackie
I have been privileged to follow my professional interest and passion for engaging people in personal discovery and development for almost forty years. For the last 20 years I have fully integrated into my coaching and consulting work my personal respect and passion for nature, horses, the intelligence of our bodies and experiential learning. The service I provide is unique to each client and innovative in approach, grounded in well accepted practices and based on a positive ‘what’s working’ and ‘what needs to change’ perspective.
I bring this approach to my work and the work of my clients at a time when we struggle with the changes brought by a highly evolved technological culture and a less evolved relational culture.
My clients include a diverse population drawn from individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. I have provided leadership development with kids from the inner city, parents, family businesses, professional men and women embarking on their careers, individuals challenged with demanding leadership responsibilities, teams struggling to succeed, CEO’s questioning ‘for the sake of what do I go to work each day.’
My commitment is to provide the context and professional service to inspire and empower individuals and their organizations to achieve their best purpose and well being in service of the greater good of the whole.
