I recently had the pleasure of reconnecting with and collaborating with The wonderful Dr. Jann Freed. My husband and I had been talking a lot about our respective goals and what we wanted to accomplish over the next several years and needed some help figuring out how to put it all together. We reached out to Dr. Freed, a former …

I have had the pleasure of connecting with Jann on many community-supporting initiatives. Most recently, we had Jann speak at the Iowa Downtown Conference to an audience of community organizers from across the state. From discussions about taking care of our career (and life) well-being to leaving a breadcrumb legacy in small ways throughout our lives, Jann’s message rang true …

Wow. I have heard leadership presenters before but Jann is the first who made me think and actually plan to put into motion her ideas and message.

Jann was easy to communicate with, flexible, and professional. Jann delivered a keynote speach as well as a working session on developing your leadership legacy. The participants of the forum found Jann to be thorough, engaging and an expert at the topic of developing a leadership legacy.
Jann was more than a great guide, she was amazing. Her own openness made the process meaningful and productive. I found myself with the tools to create a better work environment for myself and co-workers, as well as the resources to continue growing long after the process.
Jann’s executive development coaching has been one of the most valuable experiences in my career. She helped me to recognize the importance of making connections and networking in the community to broaden my horizons and identify opportunities to develop myself. Her work with me on identifying my values and creating a vision was especially helpful.

I highly recommend Jann Freed’s book, Leading with Wisdom: Sage Advice from 100 Experts. This book clearly identifies eight practices of great leaders, provides clear examples of the practices in action, and includes activities to implement the practices into daily life. This work is truly inspirational.
Dr. Jann Freed has spoken to our emerging leaders several times, and on each occasion, she brings wisdom, insight, new perspective, and enthusiasm to the concept of leadership. Her approach is informative and engaging, and attendees always leave the classes feeling inspired and confident to take on new opportunities.
Jann’s integrity and expertise quickly engaged the audience; she connected in a very conversational style while challenging us to think deeply about our individual and collective legacies. Jann’s humorous yet profound stories established her as a lifelong learner, teacher, seeker and mentor. She repeatedly credited others for their roles in her journey, especially in writing her several books. The employees’ …
