Is it possible to perform at our best without sacrificing ourselves?

Can we slow down to help us accelerate further while juggling the increasing and shifting demands of life and work?

How do we break through people's opinions and make a difference by going against the norm?

To answer these questions, we sought the unique expertise of a leader who has been tested in the most rugged and high-stress environments- meet Dr. Jannell MacAulay. 

Passionate and credible in the field of human performance and leadership, Dr. Jannell MacAulay is a combat veteran who served 20 years in the US Air Force as a pilot, commander, special operations consultant, and professional instructor. With her innovative leadership style, she was the first leader to introduce mindfulness as a proactive performance strategy within the US military.

She continues to consult within the DoD, DoJ, and corporate America delivering keynotes and a high-performance warrior mindset training program, called Warrior's Edge, which she developed with Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks and Dr. Michael Gervais.

She is a TEDx speaker and mother of two, who is on a mission to help individuals excel in high-stress and rugged environments, by showing them how to lean into each moment to find their best selves.
