Meet Jess and Matt Andersen

Certified WORKING GENIUS Facilitators

For years, we have both been obsessed with the concept of TEAMS.  From sports teams growing up, to coaching, to working with a team of teachers, and a team in business or ministry, we've both been on amazing teams, as well as teams full of dysfunction.  From seasons of thriving to periods where things JUST.  SEEMED.  STUCK.

But why do some teams thrive, and others get stuck?  Even  when it seems you might have the right people "on the bus", it's easy to get caught feeling guilty, or judging others when things aren't going well.


When we first learned of the WORKING GENIUS Model, it was like a lifetime of light bulbs going off at just make sense.  This is why we're so excited to be working TOGETHER  (Yes, we're a couple...married for over 20 years now) bringing The Working Genius to business teams, church leadership teams, coaching teams...and even families.  Wherever you find a group of people working together towards a common goal, The Working Genius Model can help make sure each person is "in the right seat on the bus".


We so look forward to connecting with you to help discover your Working Genius, and helping teams move towards THRIVING.  Please be sure to click the Contact US button to send us a note or to schedule a Working Genius 1-on-1 or Team Workshop. 


P.S.  In case you're wondering...we BOTH have the geniuses of WONDER and DISCERNMENT, and frustrations in GALVANIZING and TENACITY.  You can see why we're so excited to embark on this journey TOGETHER!
