What are JAM Sessions?
JAM Sessions involve an interactive leadership development process that uses group sessions and 1-on-1 coaching to help small business owners get better at driving business results. Participants learn from an experienced business coach who leads the sessions and from each other. The program uses strategic planning as a foundation and introduces learnings that entrepreneurs can incorporate in their plans to improve business effectiveness and efficiency.
JAM Sessions bring together people from a variety of industries, educational backgrounds, lifestages, experiences and more to create diversity of thought which leads to incredibly creative ideas generated for your business. You will accomplish more together than you ever could on your own.
One spot in every JAM Team is gifted to a local non-profit. A call for nominations is used to identify deserving organizations.

The demands of running a business can be overwhelming and business success often comes at the expense of personal satisfaction and well-being. Wouldn't it be nice to have a greater sense of control over your business and your life?
The key to achieving this success starts with building a strong foundation - without it, you lack focus and capacity.
A strong business foundation involves understanding who your best customers are and the needs your business fulfills for them. It’s about taking this knowledge and building an organization, as well as directing resources, to relentlessly serve these best customers – from the products or services you sell to the culture you foster to the organizational structure and processes you build.
JAM Sessions help you build a strong business foundation and develop plans to achieve your business and personal goals. It's hard work to do on your own, but with the support of a Business Coach and a diverse group of entrepreneurs, it is very achievable.

ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
I’ve run a successful business for the past 24 years. Success comes with challenges, and the departure of my right-hand employee of 20 years, nearly stretched me to the breaking point. Working with Jane helped me to look at my business in a different way. As a result, I have introduced needed processes and structure necessary to support continued growth, including doubling the size of my team. This was a big shift for me, but such a welcome change that has built sustainability into my business and given me better work-life balance. Joining the JAM Sessions has provided me with the discipline and accountability to continue this journey. I’m happy to say that business is booming and we’re ready for it!
We are very thankful to Jane for accepting us into her JAM Sessions and are proud to be a part of the first cohort. There are so many aspects of this program that have added great value as we grow our business. The dynamics of collaborating with other hardworking, dedicated and creative entrepreneurs from a variety of industries is more powerful than I would have imagined. Our new colleagues have been excellent advisors for sales/marketing and operations decisions.
Most importantly, we are inspired by Jane’s enthusiasm and so appreciative of her encouragement, ideas and coaching over the past year to help us discover our own strengths. Our company has seen incredible growth from Jane’s recommendations, high level of professionalism and solid business advice, with immediate exponential growth in one aspect of the business. We would highly recommend working with Jane for any start-up or established company. Thank you, Jane!
As a new business owner, planning seems to always get pushed off to the backburner. The JAM Sessions have been of huge value to me, in providing both a framework to make a business plan, and the accountability to follow through and get it done. Our monthly peer meetings are always time well spent. I walk out of those meetings recharged, inspired and with some practical advice from fellow business leaders.
Setting goals, and making a practical plan to work towards them is something I work on with my clients every day for their employment law problems. It has been really eye-opening to step back and apply that approach to my business.
Successfully running a non-profit takes all our focus and energy. The JAM Sessions provided tools, strategies and formulas that augmented our goals and has encouraged our business to grow in a more productive way, while recognizing the importance of a healthy work-life balance.
Being a member of the JAM Sessions provided me with an honest and unique appraisal of my business issues. The resulting clarity, additional tools/skills and organizational effectiveness techniques, all assisted me to build a stronger organization.
Jane is great at getting you back on track, thinking about what your true goals are (or could be) and creating a pathway forward. She communicates with you in a way that is encouraging and realistic that ensures you are both aligned on what are next steps.
Jane Iannacone is the most skilled facilitator with whom I’ve worked in more than 25 years of business. From the outset, she quickly grasped our vision, business model and culture. She worked closely with our leadership team to customize our program and then facilitated the full day session with purpose, energy, warmth, knowledge and insight. If you’re looking for a facilitator who will put the pieces of your organization’s puzzle together and catalyze outstanding performance, you will find that person in Jane Iannacone. She exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend her.
