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).

Testimonials

“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!”

- V. Amberg, Director, Social Equity and Diversity Office, McGill University

"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."

- C. Heenan, Adult Educator

”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.”

- A. Wong, former Organizational Development Lead, the M-Network

"Jessica is wonderful and talented person and organizations would greatly benefit from her wisdom."

- I. Simmie, Director, Campus Life and Engagement (Leadership Initiatives), McGill University

“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.”

- Dr. E. Lusthaus, Ph.D. Board Member, Avatil Board of Directors

"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. Also, Jessica is funny! and knows how to laugh and take it all just seriously enough."

- O. Dempsey, Engagement Strategist, Sustainability Consultant, and Coach

"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."

- G. Jenkyns, RN, MA Leadership Studies

"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.”

- J. Townsend, Sustainability Consultant, Engagement Specialist, Researcher

"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!"

- S. Weimar, Director, Producer, Cinematographer
