I highly recommend Dr. Kise as a presenter. Her intelligence, knowledge base, professionalism, and personality make her an ideal facilitator.” —Nancy Neusbaum, Curriculum Specialist, Capital Area Intermediate Unit, Pennsylvania

I enjoyed my executive coaching sessions with Jane Kise.  She provided insights, tools and resources that have made a big difference in my life -both professionally and personally.  If you’re interested in personal growth or improving your team’s ability to collaborate, I’d highly recommend Jane. — Molly Pelzer, President, Midwest Dairy Association

We recently had Dr. Kise present to three different audiences over the course of two days.  Although some of her themes were similar, she successfully differentiated her presentations for each audience, ensuring that each group’s unique needs were met.  The sessions were engaging and allowed us to think and discuss relevant topics that we face in our daily work. Each group left her session empowered with ideas that we could implement immediately!   — Jill Geocaris, Director, Illinois Council of Instructional Coaches, Director of Adult Learning, Maine Township Schools

Take The Bandwidth Quiz!

Did you know teaching consistently ranks among the top 20 most stressful professions in the world? Long before you feel the kind of fatigue associated with burnout, you’re losing your ability to be effective, efficient, emotionally intelligent, and engaged in your work (McGonegal, 2011). Why? Because you don’t have enough of what we call “brain energy” and “bandwidth.” Bandwidth is your key to energy, effectiveness, and engagement. Take the bandwidth quiz and see how you are doing.
