Stefanie Jackson

Owner of Canvas Salon

Stefanie Jackson Bio

I subscribe to the notion that we should play to our strengths. I believe that it is only worth doing if you love it. I trust that my journey will expose me to the right people at the right time. My biggest passion is developing leaders. I believe in the importance of the impact we can have on just one person.

I am a speaker, consultant, educator, and entrepreneur. I work to build leaders and teams that consist of and employ multiple generations. Millennials and Generation Z have entered the workforce and brought with them a host of new experiences, needs, and expectations. I love to help leaders & organizations understand the changing needs and expectations new generations bring to the workforce so that they can be successful at recruiting and retaining the best team members for their company. The core of this work focuses on organizational development practices and educational initiatives implemented company wide.

All things must evolve and leadership is no exception. If our teams need something different from us then it make sense that we have to evolve to meet those needs if we hope to be successful.
I focus on inspiring, educating, and motivating teams to be more successful at recruiting, retaining, and growing their multi-generational workforce.

As much as I love education I believe experience trumps theory, which is why I can speak first hand to the use and implementation of the theories and systems I teach. I have led multiple multi-generational teams.

I thrive when i’m in the ‘work’ with people who want to grow.

I work authentically, I work passionately, and I work collaboratively.
