An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Jacqueline Burns

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.

My passion for equipping and empowering others to live into their dreams led me to join the John Maxwell Team. Before joining the Team, I spent 20 years challenging students in the urban areas of the nation’s second largest school district to get a larger vision of themselves. I also mentored new teachers, facilitated staff development, coached colleagues, and designed curriculum.

I know, first-hand, the transformational power of engaging intentionally in a personal growth program. While a young adult, I lacked direction and focus. For a while, I spent my days sitting in a friend’s barber shop. One day I listened to a personal development program that challenged me to think differently about myself, and what was possible for me. I was 29, and raising a child alone. Wanting a better life for myself and my daughter, I entered the University of Southern California and graduated with a degree in psychology—making me the first college graduate in my family. I later went on to earn a master's degree in educational administration.

Applying and reflecting upon proven success principles was the catalyst for my transformation. It can be yours as well. John Maxwell says "Everything rises and falls on leadership," and I say we must be able to lead ourselves effectively and elegantly before we're able to do the same for others.
