    When searching for course to become a certified coach I explored many different options, and after speaking with Jessi I was convinced BlueRio Strategies would provide me with the tool needed to be successful. As an instructor, mentor, and coach she has provided me with an arsenal of tools, and has delivered on everything she has promised. Jessi is passionate, dedicated and driven to ensure each of her students succeed!

    Dominic - It can be a challenge finding the right courses and equally challenging serving participants who are willing to explore the more intense topics of learning how to coach others with authenticity and strategy - you were a great student and it was a pleasure to have you in the course. Thank you.

    I have taken several online courses with Jessi from BlueRio Strategies. She is a very involved and caring instructor who wants the best for each participant because she believes in what she does. I have taken other online classes from other companies and felt abandoned once they received the check; with Jessi, I know she values my thoughts and wants me to succeed. As a military veteran, I know I am in good hands with a caring coach.

    Lori - I really appreciate your enthusiasm. Whether onsite or online I love teaching and leading people so they develop their own value in a way that helps them move forward.

About this pro

Coaching is about empowerment – it’s about YOU taking back control of your life, YOU designing a plan with passion, purpose and that aligns with your potential. I am a Board-Certified Coach with specialties in Leadership, Career and Executive Coaching. I am also a Resilience Advisor who is known as a pioneer in advancing innovative ways of coaching and certifying other life, leadership and career coaches. I have coached over 3000 professionals in varying fields and been tapped also as a speaker and trainer for areas like Personal Branding, Adversity, Leadership and Resilience. My Philosophy and Approach: • Intuitive, insightful and yet still very tactical. • I see the big picture without losing sight of the small details that are along the way. • Offering REAL feedback in REAL time, firm and truthful and yet I will communicate with a caring enough stance that it resonates with you If you believe that innovative, results-focused, vision-driven, realistic and yet empathetic support would help you and/or your organization realize your goals –– then you have found that in my approach. I enjoy the ability to use clarity, compassion and strategy to help people build effective, sustainable and resilient systems for success. I know first-hand what it is like to struggle against systemic issues or being in careers not in alignment with my skills or values. Being able to help others transform their lives, their teams, their organizations is a gift that I do not take for granted. I have been doing this work officially since 2004 and have literally been witness to people changing their lives, businesses going from the brink of failure to great growth. My purpose is to support a world that manifests success through civility, compassion, strategy and sustainability. I envision leadership being developed in a way that is smart, accountable and respectful. And so far I have been able to contribute to this vision through the many people I coach and train. This brings me great pride and a sense of knowing that I am making an impact on the word by helping others.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      It really depends on the project. Sometimes I offer hourly rates, sometimes packages. I also am willing to offer nonprofit discounts.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to open with a discovery phase to listen and learn about what the client wants and needs and how I may be able to fit those concerns with solutions I offer. Then we come up with a plan together that will offer a road-map, one that is hopeful, inspiring, realistic and in alignment with my client's values, skills, potential and objectives. My training involves traditional coaching methods as well as models I have developed, Coaching Through Acceptance©, Survive and Thrive© and if needed brand-centered sustainability© All of these are influenced by interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB). “Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), a term coined by Dr. Dan Siegel, studies the way the brain grows and is influenced by personal relationships. Conditions once thought to be permanent now have the bright potential for healing and growth. IPNB has broad applications that are useful for parenting, mental health, addictions, education, health care, business professionals, and more.” Portland State
