The founders have long been active participants in the global community of facilitators and executive coaches. The strong connections we’ve fostered since 1997 have built a network of associates in Europe, Australia, and across North America.
Each associate is committed not only to professional excellence, but to continual learning and personal integration of the principles we teach our clients. Our associates serve clients in many ways. Associates deliver simultaneous programs to different branches of one client company. Clients experience savings on travel costs while still receiving the benefit of Working with Power’s expertise. Associates support one another to work in ways that reflect what we teach clients, and to be culturally competent across many cultures. And our Seattle founders and staff are able to work with an amazing array of clients without being away from their families, because of our client support network across the globe.
While we tap the talents of others from time to time, the most frequent contributors on our associate team are:

Jeanie is a graduate of Coach U, one of the world's foremost coach training programs, and is a member of the International Coaching Federation and the International Association of Coaches.
