They continually encounter new opportunities and challenges. They are leading because it matters. Their “it” is their enduring purpose that matters deeply to them.  My work is complete when leaders, together with their organizations, embrace reflection, curiosity, clarity, collaboration, imagination, and participation to build genuine ownership and to create forward movement towards a vibrant future. I am a process consultant because I believe in supporting the wise, empathetic, passionate and effective power of leadership to bring transformation.”

What Clients Say About Jeanne

As the Director of a non-profit organization, I contracted with Jeanne for her expertise in educational systems, Human Resource procedures, policies, and processes. What I found in addition to the expertise was professionalism, kindness, generosity, and the most seasoned of servant leaders from whom to learn! Especially helpful was her experience in cross-cultural settings. We are miles ahead due to contracting with her. Thank you, Jeanne!

Jeanne led us through six sessions, from team-building to ecocycle planning and debriefing.   Her professional skills, insights, and warm personality were evident throughout the day.  Within a week following our retreat, Jeanne provided us with a comprehensive “strategic planning road map” that will be invaluable to our ministry as we move forward.  We at Open Arms highly recommend Jeanne Jantzi to any organization that needs a consultant to guide them through a long-range planning process.
