Live Better, Lead Better

Learn, Grow, Transform

Hello, I am Janine Lombardi, founder and CEO of J9 Leading Solutions, a leadership development company.  Leadership readiness can be accelerated to help leaders achieve their highest potential at work and home.


When leaders model sustainable work behaviors and care for those they serve, everything is possible.  I can show you how with a framework and tools to build a successful, integrated personal and professional life aligned with values and purpose. If you are inspired to take action, you are in the right place.

I hired Janine to assist me in facilitating an offsite meeting with my team. She did a great job of helping to develop our agenda, facilitate our meeting and deliver the results we were looking for…….she was positive, energetic and strategic.
