WHAT IF WE'RE THE ONES THAT WE'RE WAITING FOR?
Like waiting for the sun to rise in the dead of night, sometimes we wish for a wizard to wave her magic wand and make our challenges disappear.
Whether it's growing our organizational culture to reflect our vision of it, investing in our leaders so they can excel as a team, or upping the game of our own leadership, we wish we could snap our fingers and make it happen now.
While there's no magic wand out there to transform ourselves (change is a process and takes time), by committing our selves, our teams, or our organizations to development, we sign up for a powerful lantern to guide us through the night.
Until... we don't need that lantern anymore (because we've built our own).

“The work Jessica did with our team was outstanding and sustainable. She has excellent communication skills and sensitivity to people from diverse backgrounds and visions. Jessica facilitated the expression of different views all the while bringing a sense of strong purpose and unity to discussions. I would strongly recommend her, and I would not hesitate to rehire her. She’s a phenomenal facilitator… and I’ve experienced a lot of them!”
"I have met with advisors, coaches, psychologists, and counsellors, and Jessica Earle-Meadows outshone them all. She is far and away the most insightful of all the practitioners that I have had the privilege to meet. She sees connections, and more importantly, acts as a catalyst to allow me to connect the dots in ways that I never thought possible. She is understanding but decisive. She has unshakable integrity. If you are ready to make real change then she is the one I'd recommend."
”Jess helped us understand and tackle the organizational issues we had ignored. I can always count on Jess to provide astute insights and help the group, as individuals and as a team, get to where we need to go. It has been a true pleasure to work with Jess; she is a great mentor.”
"Jessica is a dynamic and vibrant coach, who takes a deeply loving and honest approach to her work with clients. She brings great intellectual wisdom and deep intuition to our sessions, which help me achieve greater clarity with each one. I feel like I've been able to step off the hamster wheel of over-analysis and into my own wisdom. I appreciate being able to explore all aspects of myself and my process in a space that is compassionate, smart and inspired. Also, Jessica is funny! and knows how to laugh and take it all just seriously enough."
“Jessica has excellent skills in designing projects in creative ways that work with the culture of the department. She is personable, knowledgeable, flexible, adaptable and an excellent listener. Through her leadership, our department led two very successful projects that have had a long-term effect on our work. I recommend her highly!”
"After my work with Jessica, I am more conscious of what I want and need; more determined to seek it, and more intentional about creating situations and making choices accordingly. I now feel that I am capable of making the shifts that I want to make, especially with Jessica’s help with understanding what those shifts are, and why they are important. I feel re-charged and optimistic. Working with Jessica was an absolute pleasure. I would recommend her services to anyone who's looking for a change."
“Your process design and facilitation workshop series for staff and faculty was outstanding. You create an excellent learning environment.”
"I came to Jessica to help me develop my leadership skills. After working with her my attitude and my ways of thinking have changed. I got to step back, clarify, depersonalize my experience, and realized I did not have to be so hard on myself. Jessica's inviting approach allows you to see yourself and your situation from a fresh perspective. From this place of clarity, you can examine your motivations, values, and options. For anyone wanting a gentle guide back to yourself, Jessica is for you."
"Jessica is wonderful and talented person and organizations would greatly benefit from her wisdom."
"Hiring Jessica to be my coach was like landing in a hammock after jumping into an abyss. I immediately felt taken care of - a priority. I felt truly heard and ultimately seen and the process was deeper than I had anticipated. Jessica’s insightful wisdom has been the guiding light I needed to navigate this new exciting path. I feel excited and evermore hungry to dig deeper and make this opportunity count. I cannot rave enough about my coaching experience with Jessica, I have felt so grateful to have this wise, wonderful woman as my coach through such a pivotal time in my life."
“Jessica and her colleague excelled in creating trust with all members of the organizational community. As a member of the Board of Directors that worked closely with them throughout their contract, I am confident that everyone who was involved would highly recommend Jessica.”
"Jessica is very intuitive and highly skilled at "reading" me and the circumstances I'm in in multiple ways. It's amazing how she can sift through all of that information and offer back clear and pointed inquiries or observations helping to shed light on my current path. I appreciate Jessica's ability to see me as a whole person that embraces my spirit, intellect, emotional body, and physical self. After working with Jessica I am clear that I need to align my professional identity with my vision of "right livelihood". I am clear that I can achieve that which I wish to create.”
Through my life changing coaching with Jessica, I found a solid path forward. She sifted through chatter (mine) and came up with inspired ideas that instantly resonated with me. I always felt I was on the right track. Jessica offered me immense support, encouragement and unwavering belief which is where the real value came. Jessica has a gentle but wise way about her that made things relaxed but effective PLUS she is funny! After every session I went away feeling charged and focused. For anyone considering coaching with her don’t hesitate - it is worth every penny.
"I was feeling stuck and disconnected from my life's purpose. Jessica is a warm and authentic coach with this amazing ability to listen with openness and empathy. She really helped me to clarify my thoughts and ideas about my life choices, and to build the courage to take a very important decision. After many years of thinking and hesitating, I took some time off my full-time paid job. I feel inspired and motivated to continue working on my personal growth. I feel that I am gaining momentum towards realizing what I truly want. Jessica is so good at what she does, and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to work with her."
"Jessica was amazing in her ability to let me express my feelings without inhibition and without fear of being judged. She is very gentle and loving but doesn't shy away from addressing potential hard truths. She was extremely good at mirroring back what I was trying to explain and helped me to become more clear without ever assuming the role of the coach 'who knows it all.' Throughout this process she was exceptionally supportive and caring. I highly recommend her for any coaching!"
Before I worked with Jessica I was: second guessing my decisions, stressing about work when I wasn't at work, and felt like I was in an endless loop. My work with Jessica helped me: have way more confidence in just being myself, find the right language to communicate with upper management so I could be heard, and build myself systems to re-direct my "self-doubt loop." Jessica found a way to connect her thinking with my own so I could find a way out of the challenges on my path. I highly recommend her to anyone!
"Jessica is creative, compassionate and intelligent. Our work together provided me with a helpful understanding of some ways to shift my approaches relating to myself and others. I especially loved the metaphors she came up with, because they were so evocative and rich. I am pleased to recommend Jessica as an able and effective coach. You'll be in good hands."
"After every session with Jessica, I left feeling inspired about my topic and the work ahead of me. What I remember most about Jessica was her creativity and insights, and her ability to ask great questions, and magically 'connect the dots'."
