Hi, I am Jackie Johnston
Guiding you To A New TALENTVANTAGE

As a seasoned leadership and organizational development leader who believes in people-first, business-savvy solutions, I excel in uncovering and addressing the underlying friction that is festering beyond the work, thereby expanding the realm of possibilities and paving the way for growth, progress, practical solutions, and good business.

I believe that leaders want to do both: empower people and elevate business.

Overcoming obstacles requires openness to new perspectives, a willingness to challenge your assumptions, and a commitment to continual learning and growth. I’m talking about moving from good to great. From individualist to collective. From energy-depleting to energy-generating. This is transformation, and no one can do it alone.

Your leadership, your teams, your workforce, your business. Together, we go farther.

Let’s talk about how a new vantage point can transform your organization.
