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

About Rashida Jourdain

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.

Prior to joining the John Maxwell Team, I spent close to 20 years in Corporate America in various leadership roles. My experience includes: Business Management, Corporate Training, Recruiting, Hiring, Human Resources, Sales and Nonprofit Organizations. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Pre-Medicine Psychology from the University of Illinois. I am the Founder of The Jourdain Group, LLC. I’m also an author, trained actor under the Sanford Meisner Master Program, women's relationship coach and mentor for teenage girls.

As a third generation business owner, I learned the importance of leadership and communication at an early age. I grew up in Chicago and had to overcome many obstacles. My father taught me about purpose, goals and dreams and encouraged me to teach others to do the same. He bought me John Maxwell’s book “21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” which completely changed the trajectory of my thinking. Applying John’s teachings over the years has revolutionized my life. That is why I joined The John Maxwell Team and dedicated my life to helping others fulfill their God given potential.

As a leader, entrepreneur, woman, wife, mother and friend, I understand the challenges and complexities of each role. I teach others by equipping them with the tools needed to balance their lives by keeping their emotional, mental, physical, financial and spiritual wells filled.

My speaking style is entertaining, engaging, inspirational, practical, informative, relevant, insightful and humorous. I have a heart for youth and giving back to the next generation is critical. Currently, I live in Orlando, Florida with my husband Yonel and our two amazing sons, Jonathan and Christopher. Having them on this journey makes the dream all the more worth it.
