Meet Janet Macaluso, Learning2LEAD Founder

I'm not here to sell you an idea, I am here to sell you on YOUR NEXT POTENTIAL.

Self AND Systems Potential.

I help Leaders, Teams and Change Makers build new practices and routines. My anti-hero methodology creates a space to ...

... break automatic, outdated habits

... design new patterns and new worlds

... eliminate energy-draining waste

... design transformational change

... diagnose challenges, mysteries, messes

... deliver exceptional systemic results


As a previous executive of leadership, learning, and organization design functions, I've equipped thousands of global leaders to grow their leadership, businesses, and causes.

Yet I've reinvented my traditional follow-the-guru, textbook approach and replaced it with a unique technology that combines modern science and ancient wisdom.

It's a conscious-building methodology because there's no playbook or textbook to navigate constant change and flux.

I'm keenly interested in replacing the ghost of mediocrity with a thriving future for all living, social and planetary systems.

Janet's experience includes:

▫️ Masters in Education, Harvard

▫️ Master of Science, Pepperdine

▫️ Advanced Certificate in Organization Design, USC

▫️ BRAINZ Top 500 in 2021 and 2022

▫️ Certified Professional Coach, IPEC

▫️ Certified High-Performance Coach

▫️ Certified Tiny Habits Coach

▫️ Certified Immunity2CHANGE Facilitator

▫️ Certified Professional Retirement Coach

▫️ Certified Search Inside Yourself Facilitator

▫️ Certified HeartMath Coach and Facilitator

And... 7 years studying Regenerative Business with Carol Sanford in: the Change Agent Community, Regenerative Business Development, The Regenerative Women Entrepreneurs, The Regenerative Educator, The Regenerative Business Development Community

I've invested decades learning what works

- and what doesn't - so you won't have to.

Becoming invisible

August 19, 20231 min read

Have you experienced the common TIC phenomenon?

It emerges when adults shuttle kids around, and then ... POOF!

They transform into The Invisible Chauffeur.

At home, I'D HEAR CRICKETS in response to my inquiry, "How'd your day go?"

But in the car with their friends ... That's where the magic happened!

The driver magically melts into The Invisible Chauffeur.

Like a fly on the wall, TIC hears lively tales of schoolyard battles, fleeting romances, late science projects, teacher drama... !

Playing the silent observer is the role Harry West and his Design Thinking team played while consulting with P&G.

Working as social anthropologists, the team silently observed women (yes, only women, cringe) cleaning their floors.

Harry told me that the women weren't washing floors -- they were swishing dirty water around with a mop.

Ultimately, their observations led to the innovative Swiffer Mop -- which evolved into a billion-dollar market for P&G.

But... you don't need to be TIC or mop the floor to gain deep insight!

Innovation starts with deeply caring and observing to learn your people's hopes, desires, or unmet needs.

Consider just for today, this week, or the next hour...

In alignment with Deeply Caring...

  • How might you see and listen differently?

  • To what degree are you open to learning with Beginners Mind?

Articles

Here are the articles I wrote for BRAINZ.

01

Time For A Pronoun Paradigm Shift?

During a recent large online meeting, I felt different. Like I didn’t get the memo saying: “Post pronouns beside your name.” If all those talented Harvard alumni women posted their pronouns, I should too, right? Me2.


02

Top Ways Leaders Manage Conflict And Reduce the Stress Response

Nested within a wide circle of family, colleagues, and community systems, we humans find health, happiness, and meaningful purpose. And sometimes, friction.


03

It's All In Your Head – Cultivating Conscious Conversations

When you inaccurately imagine something, “It’s all in your head.” It’s also what the car mechanic thinks when you complain about that clicking sound that mysteriously disappears during the inspection.



04

What’s Worse? Scary Movie 3 Or “We Have To Talk”?

Does “We Have to Talk” trigger an inner primal scream? Perhaps you’ve heard these ominous 4-words from...

  • The Boss: “I have some feedback”

  • A Partner: “It’s me, not you”

  • Garage Mechanic: “It’s the transmission”

  • Child's teacher: “About their behavior”

05

Do You Have A Clearing Disorder?

Have you ever complained about busy work distracting you from strategic, high-impact projects and planning? You’re not alone!




06

Silence Your Perfectionista

Did you get all that? If English is your native language, most likely you understood it, errors and all. Spelling mistakes did not materially impact the outcome.
