Welcome to My World!
In 2003, I was facilitating an organizational change initiative where everyone had the great intention to make leaps toward a compelling vision. Momentum jumped forward and then, inexplicably, rolled back. Able to see the big picture and how fast things were changing technologically, ecologically and socially I knew that unless decision makers seized the opportunity for growth at a personal, leadership and company level, companies would fail to adapt.
Being brought up by a professional naturalist and wildlife photographer and world traveller makes it easy for me to see systemic inter-relationships along with what no one is paying attention to. Nature is a master of using complexity to manage resilience. Using simple principles to expand leadership and business agility, resilience and great workplaces, people can bring their whole selves to work. All powered by decision making awareness at accelerated heights!
A world traveller, adventurer, progressive thinker, and trailblazer I’m a self confessed lover of the intersection between the power of the human spirit, learning from every experience and interdisciplinary thinking.
Dawna works collaboratively with internal and external talent to leverage lasting personal-organizational-systemic transformation. Having worked with interdisciplinary teams and partnerships for over 25 years, Dawna customizes all of her work. Speeches and workshops start with the client’s stage of leadership decision-making awareness and values then stretch to realize foresight and the future of business’s purpose in the world and workplace.

A brilliant mind, a sensitive and intuitive being who sees the big picture, how everything fits together who shows individuals how they can move forward in practical heartfelt ways! You engage participation in whatever aspects of the change a person-corporation-group is ready to embrace toward self-actualization. Dr. Nelie Johnson- www.awarenesheals.ca
The greatest value Dawna has given me aside from a wealth of resources and her podcasts on Management-Issues.com is Dawna’s way of articulating the collective content in fresh, poignant, and thought-provoking way. Which for me, helps me creatively and analytically develop a more comprehensive perspective to my own tools, methods and communication. Dawna Jones is truly valuable and insightful. She helps connect the Millennial mind and Baby Boomer drive, as businesses continue to define their facility and workplace environments.
