Thank you for reaching out to find support for yourself! Stretching outside one’s comfort zone is often the hardest step in the process. I am Jelena Simpson...a social worker, coach, teacher and speaker. I am here to empower, encourage and be a resource for your personal development and professional growth. Dedicated, creative, and committed are words my clients use to describe me.
My passion, and business since 1996, is consulting, coaching, identifying and implementing creative ways to grow businesses. Quality relationships are important to my people-focused solution approach! I combine consulting and leadership-coaching techniques to enhance productivity and transformation. As a licensed social worker in behavioral healthcare, I see the benefits and long-term, positive impact coaching has on encouraging helping people reach success and happiness.
I have worked in public and private, profit and non-profit sectors, giving me great insight in understanding organizational needs. I have served on boards and been an active member of successful, executive and management teams. I am confident the leadership skills within organizations can be developed into a stronger platform for companywide success. My commitment to you is to empower, teach, and equip others with the essentials of incorporating John Maxwell’s leadership philosophy, inspiring leadership effectiveness through practical application and growth.
Personally, I am blessed to have a wonderful husband of 20 years; together we have a son and a dog ~ a great family unit! I was raised with four sisters in West Texas on a working ranch where I learned about family, integrity, honesty and the value of hard work! My pastimes include baseball, church, scuba diving, and service work. I find something to laugh about daily...and find peace knowing I have a place and plan to help others.
