Leadership Resilience – Group Coaching

Are your staff members having challenges managing change in our changing world? Do you want to activate your purpose and values on a regular basis? Do you want to effectively influence others?

Self-aware, strong and trustworthy leaders are essential in today’s world. Our group coaching sessions help leaders connect to the skills that will enable them to lead under pressure, see themselves clearly and motivate others in a changing world.

I create customized coaching programs to help business leaders, who are struggling with anxiety and stress, lead from their authentic self so they can

  • Relax and calm down
  • Activate their true purpose
  • Take control of their emotional triggers
  • Improve their executive presence
  • Create the life they want



Leading others begins with leading yourself first. Dr. Jessica has studied theories from positive psychology, neuroscience and cognitive psychology. Based on this research, Dr. Jessica has created coaching programs to help managers and c-suite leaders increase self-awareness, resilience and influence.

Dr. Jessica helps leaders step into their power as confident and influential leaders by…

  • providing assessments to help participants identify triggers, strengths, areas of growth and barriers
  • helping leaders create a leadership purpose
  • helping leaders implement mindfulness and relaxation practices throughout the day
  • providing tools and resources to help leaders master active listening and communication skills
  • building their level of influence

Our group coaching sessions can be customized to fit your needs. During our sessions, we discuss progress/lapses on goals, and we have weekly modules with videos or downloadable tools and resources.

Leaders who have attended our sessions revealed: 

  • reduced anxiety and stress

My only regret is, I wish I had found Jessica earlier in my career! Jessica came highly recommended and has become one of the best recommendations I have ever received. Jessica’s partnership creates a progressive balance between coaching, mentoring, informing and challenging that has helped develop my leadership capability, credibility and results. Jessica is supportive, insightful, practical and results oriented. Our work together has enabled me to be a more effective executive and leader and I could not be more pleased with the relationship and the demonstrable results. LaTonya Washington, Cox Communications

I have had the pleasure of working with Jessica and admire her passion and rigorous pursuits as an Industrial/Organizational Psychologist and Learning & Development professional. Jessica focuses her coaching, writing and workshops on improving the quality of thoughts and actions. She is effective at equipping leaders and human services professionals with the tools they need for coaching, goal setting, behavior change and communications. Jessica focuses her efforts on scaling impact through training community leaders to be teachers and coaches. She is sensitive to customer needs and is very approachable which makes her very effective as a coach, adviser and teacher. James Sila, The Coca Cola Company

My group coaching experience was very beneficial, it gave me an opportunity for self discovery; to examine myself closer, and set realistic goals for myself. Also, I realize just how important my attitude and body language is (the two should coincide). Thank you, and much success!!!  Treavius

At first I was a little resistant. I’m a private person and don’t do well with someone prying into the who, what, when and why. But……I came to look forward to the sessions. I found them to be informative, and relaxing. (You did offer so well founded suggestions). You also brought out some things in me that I had long forgotten. I’m using them now and its working for my betterment. Diana

I enjoyed the group coaching sessions that you provided and found that they were very informative and enlightening. I was particularly impressed with the leadership profile which indicated that I am a visionary, as perceived by others, and that I project a style that is steady, decisive, organized and logical. For lessons learned and my next steps, I will foster a habit of developing more than one possible solution for a problem and focus more on the value of delegating so others will learn to develop pride and ownership in their work. As a result of your sessions, I feel that I have obtained more confidence in knowing that my leadership style is one that is perceived in a positive light by others and the developmental strategies for improvement that I obtained during our sessions are ones that I will utilize in the future.  Norma Jenkins, Ph.D.

I believe that my coaching session was a tremendous help to me with learning how to relax which allowed me to be more productive and the work flow was smoother. I also learned that in my own way I am a leader and that by being a leader doesn’t mean that you always have to be seen but by delegating to others is leading them as well, so basically in being a leader you can be behind the scene and not out front. Also, I was given tips on how to deal with situations when they arise so as not to panic and get frustrated which would cause my pressure to elevate. Thank you for your help and if I need your assistance in the future, I will call you. Valerie
