Enabling Leadership Excellence - One Leader at a Time

Sometimes the path to greater leadership can be hard. We get feedback that blindsides us, the business takes a downward turn or we face challenges that feel overwhelming or insurmountable, especially given all that has transpired in the world in the past two years.. And often it is difficult to know what to do next ... As leaders, it is hard to find someone to confide in about the challeges we face. These are situations where coaching can be immensely valuable.Providing a confidential and trusting relationship where we can be vulnerable and work through these challenges is truly where coaching can get us unstuck and take us to the next level.


Our vision is to enable your leadership development so you can become the very best leader you aspire to be. We focus on building your leadership capability through cultivating greater self-awareness, self-confidence, competence and compassion to enable the very best version of you in your leadership journey.


We encourage you to take the time to consider your strengths, motivations, values and capabilities- both from your own reflection and from the input of others who want to fully support your growth.


Our approach is designed to be purposeful and focused, and is built on the assumption that you have the capability to become an extraordinary leader with the support of a trusted coach.  This approach has effectively fueled our business since we started in 2006. We’re thrilled you’ve decided to visit us - please browse our site to discover what we’re all about.

About Us


Jean Gasen is a leadership coach and facilitator who is dedicated to helping individuals excel – one leader at a time. Jean founded her leadership development firm in 2006, driven by a passion for enabling individuals, teams and organizations to discover the best in themselves and one another. Her enthusiasm and entertaining yet thought-provoking presentations have also made her a successful and sought after keynote speaker.


Jean believes in treating you as a unique and capable leader with the capacity to move from good to great. She provides insight and support to help build a confidential relationship of trust and integrity that inspires accountability for your actions and motivation to grow. And her unique, diverse background, which sets her apart from others, provides you with the benefits of her experience and success in academia, industry and the international coaching community.


Jean has successfully worked with senior leaders who have had wide ranging challenges — from those who are told they talk too much (or listen too little) and need to work on “soft skills,” to those who try so hard to please others that they just can’t seem to say no and end up feeling overworked and overwhelmed. She also loves working with leaders who just want to step back, reflect upon where they are in their careers, and then consider what really matters, what’s missing and what’s next.


Jean will challenge you and be your biggest advocate, creating a safe environment for self-reflection, revelation and learning. Clarifying your core personal and professional goals will enable you to create specific strategies for your leadership growth. And Jean can help make your journey creative and impactful … and maybe even fun.
