Leaders are developers, team builders, vision casters, culture caretakers, roadblock removers, inspirers. They enable the success of others and unleash safe space for growth and great ideas.

It is not about position, or title,  it is more about passion and making a difference. It is who you are and an attitude you express daily no matter where you are or what you’re doing.


Managers have a role to play in the operation of a team of people towards meeting a set of goals. They have a responsibility to hold people accountable for doing something. It is the  job of shepherding others towards the end goal.

The responsibility of management is to your bottom line and meeting customer expectations.

The responsibility of leadership is to your team and people you work with every day. 

The support and guidance I’ve received from Jen over the years has been truly priceless. I’ve learned that life isn’t about comparing yourself to others. It’s about becoming the best version of yourself. I’ve grown immensely in my career and personal life due to the daily, weekly, and monthly inspiration that Jen offers. The greatest skill I’ve obtained is visionary thinking which has paved the way to always reaching higher than anyone expects me to. I owe all of my growth and experiences to Jen and her coaching/mentoring. Ryan Seematter
