Find freedom on the other side of discomfort.
Introducing GroundBreaking Leadership: an experiential coaching and practice space.
We’re living and working in uncomfortable times: racial tensions on top of economic uncertainty and digital disruption. Now more than ever, we need leaders who refuse to hide in the safety of business as usual, but instead are role models for a more human future of work.
You may be feeling the constraint of Industrial Era expectations, like:
- Have all the answers.
- Keep your guard up.
- Protect the soft underbelly of what you’re really feeling.
- Avoid uncomfortable conversations.
If so, you probably know that…
The answer is more humanity, not less.
You want to create an environment where people are free to be themselves instead of crammed into boxes. Where authenticity and kindness irresistibly attract employees and customers. Where the “elephants in the rooms” are gently recognized and released in order to unlock healthy growth. Where digital enhances, not replaces, genuine human interaction. Where answers emerge rather than being dictated.
But you’re not sure how to make the shift.
You need a safe space to learn and practice a new way of leading.
Groundbreaking Leadership is an experiential group coaching program that provides this safe space to move through discomfort into the freedom on the other side. You’ll develop greater confidence to model how to be more human at work by:
- Learning how to access your whole-mind wisdom, bringing Analyzing Mind into balance with body-based Sensing and Feeling Minds.
- Practicing with discomfort in a safe, small-group environment with peers.
- Role-playing difficult situations from your workplace to find new groundbreaking solutions.
|Experiential||Practicing being comfortable in discomfort|
|Visceral||Feeling our way forward, not thinking it|
|Reflective||Recognizing that the outer world is a mirror of our inner reality|
|Curious||Embodying the patient curiosity of an archeologist, digging layer after layer|
|Playful||Why so serious? Choosing laughter over judgment|
About the program:
The goal is to begin transforming your workplace culture into one that’s more human and authentic by first transforming yourself. And your skills will transfer into your home life as well.

What they say
“Within weeks, Jennifer was able to walk me through a door I never knew existed. The process she uses is hardly difficult, but I certainly didn’t expect the seismic shifts in my thinking, my body or heart. I can authentically say, my confidence is growing, my health is improving, and my attitude at work has transformed.”Krystal, co-founder and sales VP
“Facilitating international groups of activists over several days is a tough gig. But Johnnie does it brilliantly, with passion, humility and commitment. That’s why we keep asking him back.”Becky – International Development Director
