Who We Are

The short story:

  • You think (and lead) differently. So do we.
  • We are woman-owned and woman-led.
  • We are experts in remote work and virtual collaboration.
  • Our solutions put people first, will grow and evolve with you, and meet you where you are at, literally – virtually, digitally and in-person.

The long(er) story:

SJLC was founded in 2014 in San Jose, California, by Wendy Ryan. For over 25 years, Wendy successfully built teams, led organizations and coached individuals toward higher levels of performance all over the United States. In 2014, Wendy envisioned a different kind of consulting firm. One that would give back to her local community while making a global impact, and provide affordable access to world-class leadership and organizational development expertise for organizations of any size and industry in any geography. Today, SJLC is transforming forward thinking leaders and their organizations across the Bay Area and beyond.
