Meet Jane Tight

Joni about Jane:

Curious, heartful, intuitive, encouraging. 
A shining light; empathy + practicality = master coach

For the past 20 years, Jane has been coaching leaders and organizations to successful outcomes. She leads with deep, empathic listening, encouraging the best of her clients to show up, and then she challenges them with fierce belief that they can get what they want. Jane’s sweet spot is using the Enneagram as a transformational tool with individuals and scaling organizations who know that the world needs more self-aware people. Specialties include leadership coaching, Enneagram facilitation, development and training, offsites, team building and consulting. 

Jane earned the designation of Master Coach with Coaches Training Institute. She also earned an MS in Communication Disorders/Language Pathology from University of Redlands after which she founded a Speech Clinic that she grew and managed for 19 years as a first career. She started working with “disorders of communication”... and still is!

Jane about Jane:

I love backpacking, living and traveling in Europe, reading great books, and beating my four grown sons in ping pong (when I can!) Along with my husband, I enjoy fruit and vegetables from our garden, honey from our beehives, eggs from the chickens, and the Golden Cocker puppy we share with our best friends!

Joni about Joni:

Relentless observation of the human condition (especially my own); hiking, kayaking and camping in the eastern sierra; gym time; biking; and living my best life yet in stunning Marin County, California with my husband and our precious perra, Sofie, hecho en Mexico.
