Jean Baumann Joins Mass Ingenuity!


We want to welcome Jean Baumann to the Mass Ingenuity Team! Here’s how Jean describes herself:

“I help leaders, teams, and organizations articulate their strategic direction, build leadership capabilities, and implement change initiatives to accelerate business performance.  As an organizational development specialist, I assist others to achieve better results easier and faster by attending to both the people and process sides of managing change and improving organizational effectiveness.  Myspecialty is designing and delivering consulting services within the context of an organization’s mission, vision, and goals to address their complex needs, such as large-scale process improvement initiatives and leadership development programs.

In 1994, I founded a successful consulting firm and worked with organizations across the world after serving for several years as the market strategist at a Fortune 500 corporation for their $300M public sector division.  I have an MBA from Creighton University in Omaha, NE, a Master’s in Applied Behavioral Sciences from the Leadership Institute of Seattle, and certificates in communications, process improvement, and sustainability.

I have lived in the Pacific Northwest since 1988 when I fell in love with its yearlong natural beauty.  I am a ballroom dancer, and enjoy social dancing just as much as competing in a floor-length, bead-speckled gown.”
