Motivating Change

The #1 skill to help people make change a reality: Motivational Interviewing. Start engaging with people and boost their growth. 


These are definitely things that I tell people a lot while I'm doing nutrition coaching. Most of it is around thoughts and feelings and why they think that they're doing something. I like this, these are good points to keep it on track"

- Jeff, Nutritionist


Wow thank you, my sister can be kind of hard, you know. I always try to help, but now I feel like I actually can. I'm surprised I was finally able to have the conversation I really wanted."

- Hannah, Student

Hi, I'm LeAnn

I set my first goals at age 14. Since then I’ve raised 7 children, gotten a couple of degrees, written some books, and become obsessed with how to teach family leaders (moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles) a framework, principles, and tools for creating what they want in their lives and in their families using goals.
