Jen's Core Values
Meet Jen Nguyen
I'm Jen, the founder and CEO of Evolve Coaching & Consulting. I provide leaders with a secure, non shaming, accountable container to do the important work of unlearning their social conditioning. They learn to trust their bodies, to handle the flood of emotions that otherwise inhibit their growth, and come away with a deeper sense of self and possibility than they've ever had. I see this work as an imperative part of dismantling white supremacy toward collective transformation and liberation. It is the very practice of deconditioning that is revolutionary and opens the possibility for liberation and liberatory leadership where power is redistributed and perpetual inequities can be undone.
I believe we have incredible untapped power to change the world IF we do the work to unlearn our conditioning. My own complicated relationships with power, patriarchy, and white supremacy got in my way as a leader. I embodied urgency and got rewarded for being "high capacity," but at great cost to my own health and to the humans I worked with. As the recipient of incredible coaching, I built a practice of deconditioning from my own white conditioning (which is a lifelong endeavour), and a level of joy and fulfillment was unleashed in me that I want for others. Coaching with me will help you untangle this complicated web so that you are liberated and can then contribute to the liberation of others.
As a child, I was part of the generation that was taught love
is colorblind and have spent my adult life unlearning this falsehood. In practice, this has taken on many forms including multiple degrees, certifications, fellowships, apprenticeships, and coaching (side note: I believe all coaches need coaches so that we also do deep inner work!). I am deeply committed to using my superpowers as a transformational coach to dismantle white supremacy and bring healing and liberation to leaders at all levels so they, in turn, can do the important work of leading transformation within their teams and organizations.
