Assisting You in the Alignment of Your Intentions


Jan works through her business, Strategic Solutions Services, LLC to help individuals, teams and companies integrate and align from a foundation of values and purpose in order to function effectively in every arena of life.

Leadership Coaching with Jan goes far beyond accessing immediate answers to situational challenges relating to conflict resolution and communication skills. It simultaneously addresses alignment of the leader’s vision and place in their world. Thorough understanding of vision, and ensuring values and motives combine with relational skills, allow clarity while empowering leadership.

Leaders today that are poised for the next step look past themselves, past their organizations — and continue to look beyond to internal and external stakeholders, towards their community – both immediate and global.

Understand first what you value, align from those values, and lead your life and your organization from that alignment.


What is Executive Coaching and how does it differ from Leadership Coaching?


They all start with you, the leader. Executive and Leadership Coaching both include Life Balance Coaching. (After all, life is integrated!)

Leadership Coaching in addition incorporates aspects of life uniquely seen in a work environment — for example, organizational dynamics, team communication, and related topics.

Executive Coaching includes all of the above plus perspective(s) from other organizations such as Boards of Directors, internal and external stakeholders, donors, investors, and others. Typically, there is a common goal the organization and the individual are in partnership to achieve maximum impact. The coach serves as a catalyst to enable and maximize that process.

A sub-set of both Leadership and Executive Coaching, Team Development incorporates various methods, metrics, and techniques to ensure the team is in alignment with its organization and with each other, while simultaneously maintaining personal alignment.


Our approach engages your leadership team individually and collectively. Through knowing their individual strengths and challenges, and understanding the team’s specific preferences of behavior, you will be effectively aligned, thereby accelerating success

Be prepared. While we are working on tangible, measurable goals, transformational work is happening internally to effect lasting change. When you align what you stand for, how you show up in the world, and how you bring those intentions to fruition, your world has the potential to change

The process begins with a dialogue to discuss your goals and objectives, and to identify what is blocking you from achieving that vision. From there we work through different lenses to uncover the most effective approach to evolve your ideas into actionable tasks.

With this approach, you will discover how to unlock the knowledge assets that are already within you and your organization — often information that is forgotten and not leveraged. There is a wealth of value locked away that can be deciphered by working through what seems like a complex pattern into a clear and logical path.
