Speaker on Decision Making, Tenacity, and Women’s Leadership
An accomplished business leader, proven at achieving results, and recognized facilitator, Jess brings tremendous insight, real world implications, and unconventional ideas to her programs. She has worked with and presented to tens of thousands of business owners and leaders around the world.
The route to answers begins with the acknowledgement we lead and decide without having all the answers.
In business, the unknown can be stifling. Jess Dewell, founder of Red Direction, Infusion Principle, and The Voice of Business Radio, perceptively talks about leading with incomplete information. Each choice we make impacts results. Highlighting concerns and problems through a thoughtful, realistic lens can, however, serve as the catalyst for beginning the change you want to see, and supporting transformation in progress.
Grab chaos by the hand. Lead, stick to decisions, and build business tenacity.

Harness Your Power to Lead, Assess and Navigate a Profitable Business
With business leaders being forced to quickly adapt to market changes and do more with less, it takes a lot more than gut instinct and a great idea to successfully lead a thriving business. In this session, you’ll gain key insights into how to use the powerful Act to PLAN method and create the structure, processes, and team clarity needed to build a company that lasts.
Act To PLAN is a new bold way to do business by working more with strengths and doing the work. PLAN is four frameworks: Power to Lead, Assess, and Navigate a profitable business. We cover:
- Where the power within our business is,
- What our business can tell us vs what we need to have it tell us,
- Understand how to use the information we collect, and
- Choose the direction to reach goals.
Using proven business techniques to maximize your company’s strengths, work flow, and culture.
The skills we use and develop in PLAN:
observation, listening, research, communication, integrity, problem solving, conflict resolution, negotiation, commitment, accountability, supporting others, diversity, adaptability
