Reboot Circles Facilitators

“When we’re facing challenges that appear oppressive to our spirit, or thwart our will to achieve, we come to a threshold that, if crossed, can usher us into a new way of seeing ourselves and the world around us. We gain a new stance that we couldn’t think our way into. Leaning into these crossings is to lean into our emerging leadership and humanity.”

Jen is an executive & personal coach, group facilitator, and certified NLP Master Practitioner. She passionately assists her clients on their path to a more conscious life, fully stepping into being whole. Many clients comment that Jen’s work is so transformative words simply don’t do it justice.

Jen thrives on being present to those special “ah ha” moments when the clients connection to themselves and life is forever changed.

“Your leadership style reflects your relationship with yourself. When you shift internally, it reflects externally.  Every day you make hundreds of decisions based on your set of beliefs. They drive your behavior and shape you as a leader.”

Kate encourages clients to surface their beliefs and the identity that fuels them. With this awareness, the client can expand their choices about their current reality and future. Kate helps them “revise” their internal software to support them in having more of what they want. In fully honoring themselves, the client becomes a catalyst for bringing out the best in those around them. As these leaders change, their companies and teams transform – becoming emotionally and spiritually safe environments that breed collaboration and innovation.

Kate served as a strategic partner across L&D and HR functions within Apple, Tilt and Airbnb on her mission to build teams that ignite authenticity.

The form of your life is designed. By you. The process of revealing the seemingly invisible structures that support the form is a profound journey connecting you to the wonderfully meaningful desires you have for yourself and the world. Every day is another opportunity to re-design how you show up on the journey, every day becoming more and more you.

“I am passionate about recovering the lost art of listening well. In this culture of “telling” we are driven to make assertions, give opinions, and push messages. Yet humble inquiry is the gateway to true learning. And listening well to another human being is a sacred gift–one that can help bring about transformation in our relationships and in our organizations.”

“Over the years, I’ve seen so many leaders gain confidence, certainty, and conviction in their lives and careers. What they all have in common is the willingness to be vulnerable — to say what they really feel, who they really are, and what they really need. That’s the source of power that sustains, and that’s where I like to work.”

Anita is an executive coach, group facilitator, and certified NLP Practitioner based in San Francisco.

Throughout her previous experiences at Deutsche Bank, MTV, Nickelodeon, and her MBA program at Wharton, she’s helped individuals achieve deep introspection, and given them a platform to share stories that inspire and build community. Whether it was launching a women’s peer group within the bank or a storytelling series for business students, she leads with curiosity and empathy that empowers others to find their voice. What are they thinking about? What do they want? What makes them comfortable enough to share and create change? Anita has an innate ability to find these answers collaboratively and to support clients on their journeys to become the most effective and intentional leaders they can be.

“There is much more space within life than we suspect but it’s often hard to access given all our inside and outside noise. This inner ground is, however, the tender territory where we can listen deeply to ourselves and rediscover our innate ability to fulfill what we most yearn for – our life most worth leading. Then the job is getting there.”

“I don’t believe any of us need ‘fixing’ or that we must change ourselves in some way before we’re worthy of a life we enjoy. You already have everything you need to become the person you want to be.”

Once upon a time, Robin was an accomplished executive with 10 years of experience in marketing, leadership, people management, and startups. From 2014-2017, she served as VP Marketing at Jhana, a highly respected leadership development startup. Her coaching career began here, completely by accident. As part of a company-wide credibility initiative, she began coaching employees on how to improve their own personal brands and credibility stories. Again and again, she found herself listening to people who were brilliant and talented, yet they couldn’t see their own brilliance. Where she saw strength and resilience, they saw weakness and self-doubt. Where she saw clear passions and motivators, they saw confusion and inadequacy.

She was blown away. And fired up! She realized she could help these brilliant people. She could help them understand that they didn’t need more training or experience or credentials to become who they wanted to be. Whatever they felt they lacked was already there inside them, just waiting to be unlocked. She was happy in her career, yet this awakening tugged at some hidden place within her. When Jhana was acquired by Franklin Covey (NYSE: FC), she was faced with a choice: continue on her current, safe, lucrative path… or answer the tug within? The rest, as they say, is history.

“We are all navigating constant change. The more we can question and observe our reactions to the changes, the more we can master them.
