“We are all spiritual beings. To unleash the whole capability of the individual-mind, body, and spirit-gives enormous power to the organization. This has nothing to do with religion. People of many faiths, or no faith at all for that matter, can join together in a common cause of service to others through work.”

Professor, Management Practices, Harvard Business School


“As an executive, it is a daily occurrence to juggle and stretch to perform at the highest levels. I was fortunate to meet Jill through a “high potential” program that paths executives to the C-suite. Until that time, I found myself working incredibly hard and the work was often tiring. While finding professional success, I found the energy it took to support my career and family priorities drained me at the end of each day.

Jill’s leadership coaching is the best investment anyone could make in their career. She is a brilliant executive “whisperer” that advises with the most authentic spirit. She works with purpose and it shows. Read her book and you will begin to see that you are always ‘in choice’.”

Angela Navarro, President & Chief Operating Officer Beecher Reagan

“Jill gave me back my power. She reminds you that regardless of your success so far, you can keep getting better. We all feel overworked, underappreciated and overwhelmed at times. The concept of work-life balance often didn’t seem realistic, but through Jill’s work, she helps you bring “true” balance back to your life. She teaches you how to use the tools you already have, and brings out the best in you to help you untap your full potential. Her book opens the door to a new way of thinking. Jill was a game changer for me.  She helped me grow to become the leader (and wife, mother, and friend) I didn’t know I could be.”

Gabrielle Dow, Vice President, Marketing, Green Bay Packers

“Jill and her coaching have helped transform my presence and leadership in my business and my home. Now, more often than not, I am able to pause, reflect, and respond in a way that is both productive and positive, allowing for potentially negative interactions to become growth situations. I couldn’t more highly recommend this book or her executive coaching.”
