Jan Campbell

CEO

Great leaders are extremely self-aware, and they pay close attention to those around them. I support people to be more effective in all of their relationships, which is the foundation of achieving what they want to get done in the world. I founded Strategisense in 2000 primarily to support hardworking organizations in the social purpose, non-profit and publicly-funded sectors. My core work focuses on creating transformational and lasting change through coaching, supporting those leaders who are driven to build a case for change, rally and inspire, challenge the status quo and sustain momentum to deliver their mission with greater impact.

As founder and CEO, I lead our strategy, leadership and organizational development services which include clarifying strategic intent and planning, organizational change management, governance development, leadership development and coaching, and team effectiveness.

I love a challenge; I get excited by seeing an obstacle from a new perspective or from a completely different angle. A shift in thinking can come from anywhere or anyone. In my role as Project Manager, I focus on strategic processes to support the long-term growth of our company, and I’m proud to bring the perspective of experience in multicultural environments within the public, private and third sectors – from imagining the future with entrepreneurs and activists alike, to the discipline of working with investors and public health systems. Working within a smaller firm, I can feel the value each team member brings and the influence that they have on the company; the fact that our company is both female founded and led is important to me. I believe passionately in small, high-growth companies. Strategisense is especially exciting because of our capacity to have exponential impact on the public sector.
