Enhance Your Impact
Elevate Your Team
Strengthen Your Organization

Overtaxed teams invest tremendous energy for underwhelming results.

It’s the truth. Whether it is financial pressures, staff turnover, or an uncertain season, your team is doing the best they can. Sometimes, moving from surviving to thriving requires a little help.

Propelling your organization forward starts with you.

Your Leadership Impact

Savvy leaders coalesce a team with thoughtful leadership strategies and build a collaborative work environment. In other words, they bring out the best in their team.

Your Team’s Results

High-impact teams perform at their best when they have clarity about expectations, receive the support they need, and work within their capacity. Doing so helps to retain your best talent.

Your Organization

Building a sustainable organization means identifying today’s priorities and cultivating tomorrow’s opportunities. This foundation aligns a team around focused goals. 


A thriving arts and cultural sector is just as important to us as you having a high-impact team.

"Being a CEO can be an isolating experience. J.L. helped me break through my roadblocks, acting as a thought partner I can trust to provide honest, direct, and insightful feedback. He's an invaluable Executive Coach who has brought me confidence, clarity, and the capacity to achieve so much more.”


John Hampton

Executive Director and CEO

MacKenzie Art Gallery

“We found the experience of working with J.L. to be both productive and eye-opening. Calmly but firmly, he encouraged us to question some of our assumptions and most of our practices.  By doing so, we were able to make sales advances we had long desired."
