Jessica R. Dreistadt, Ph.D.

Hi, I'm Jessica!

​Here's a little bit about me:

  • 20 years of leadership experience

  • 14 years of university teaching experience 

  • Author of 11 books about leadership and social change 

  • Ph.D. in organizational leadership (my dissertation was entitled Portraits of Women Leaders: Solidarity and Social Division in Progressive Social Movement Organizations)

  • Founding Director of The Fruition Coalition

  • Convener and Facilitator of Club Fruition

  • Editor and Publisher of Fruition Journal

  • Coordinator of The Fruition Academy

I'm a writer, scholar, visionary dreamer, provocateur, creative thinker, philosopher, illuminator, and transformation seducer who is insatiably curious, unapologetically optimistic, and a dyed in the organic hemp bleeding heart. I have had the privilege of working on a lot of really interesting projects in my life, and am continually seeking new opportunities to contribute toward a more compassionate, just, sustainable, harmonious, joyous, peaceful, and beautiful planet.

Here's my official bio.
