Since retiring as professor she has authored five books, founded ChangeFit™ Leadership Boot Camps/ChangeFit™ Labs, has been admitted to the Speakers Hall of Fame, and one year was rated by Toastmasters as one of the top three speakers worldwide. She was the creator and host of the Emmy-nominated CBS series ‘Keep Well,’ and has appeared regularly on PBS, ABC, CNN, and NBC affiliates.
Over the past 25 years, she has inspired over 2,000 audiences around the world from Russia to Argentina to Hong Kong–with clients such as IBM, AT&T, Allstate, New York Life, Abbott, Bayer, Toyota, and Kawasaki – to adopt a ChangeFit™ disruptive leadership mindset to lead through fast change.

The Ritz-Carlton team and IBM sales used her best-selling book Plant your Feet Firmly in Mid-Air to help create their successful transformations. She is author of four other books: Dancing with Tigers, Positive Spin, Why Won’t They Listen to Me? (pack leadership), and The Four Elements of Transformation. Her forthcoming book (Wiley, 2019) highlights the leadership mindset needed to guide others through disruptive change.
A pilot and flight instructor, Janet has flown her airplane throughout South America and Africa on medical and rescue missions, and is a long time volunteer with the Flying Doctors of Mercy (ligainternational.org) helping the underserved indigenous of central México. She currently lives in southern California.
