- Knowing what is going on in the world around us;
- Being well-read and well-acquainted with multiple ideas that may sometimes appear to be in conflict;
- Gathering information from a variety of sources, making sense of it, and being able to share that “sense” with others for them to determine how they will, or will not, take action on ideas and information;
- Being a constant learner from multiple media;
- Providing well-thought-out ideas that provoke meaningful thinking and discussions by others;
- Supporting sound decision-making, based on decision models that include Jana’s Stanford University Press book “Moving Out of the Box”;

- Compiling chaotic thoughts and ideas into actionable Agendas and guiding documents;
- Assimilating information and decisions into actionable steps for individuals, teams, and organizations to implement and pursue.

“Jana wrote my book while I told the stories and shared my vision for what I wanted it to be for readers. Her tireless support and vision-implementation led to my achievement of the 2017 GOLD Award in the Travel Category of the North American Book Awards. Jana also helped document my architectural career in such a way that I was able to earn Fellowship status in the American Institute of Architects on the first submission. I highly recommend Jana as a ghostwriter for all of your business and personal-legacy projects.”
