For Leaders, Change Makers and Practical Visionaries
seeking an intentional future... from existence to potential.
Meet Janet Macaluso, Ed.M., MSOD, CPC
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 break automatic, outdated habits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, conflicts, 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
I've invested decades learning what works
- and what doesn't - so you won't have to.
I share what I'm learning,
un-learning, and occasional invitations, free webinars, and early-bird notices.

Celebrity star JLo says her #1 beauty secret is...
A positive attitude. That's it? HA!
Not hair extensions, lotions, and potent potions? Whatever.
My #1 Wellness and Happiness secret is based on this core belief...
Life is a process of BECOMING.
And life offers an "opportunity" to develop to our Best Future Self.
Yet, as you've witnessed, not everyone accepts the offer.
Growing to our next-stage potential is process and commitment.
Here are my functional hacks that fuel my commitment to become more ...
Intermittent Fasting: On average, I stop eating after 5pm or 6pm. Then I fast for 15-16 hours until a protein breakfast late in the morning.
Yuka App: Take a picture of the QR code from any food or cosmetic item, and it rates it instantly on hazardous substances, fiber, sugar, calories ...
After seeing Active Walking on YouTube, I purchased the App. (Now, I do it independently as it's embedded in my muscle memory.) It does the job!
Slow-flow yoga with planks and squats twice a week. Strength-building is critical as we age.
Fidget: Brief bursts of movement are impressively beneficial. Nobody knows (until now) that my legs are in Tree Pose under my stand-up desk while Zooming. And I do a few jumping jacks on my mini-trampoline throughout the day.
I take 1-2 of these magnesium capsules for deep ZZZs. More HERE
I tape my mouth to sleep through my nose!! Yup, it's weird but science-backed and works for me! Hear about it HERE

Here are the recent articles I wrote for BRAINZ.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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!
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.
