More about Jess Cisco:
Jess Cisco, the founder and president of ActiveLeading, LLC, has learned from a life of service. Through 20 years in the F&B industry, 11 years in higher education, and 6 years as a leadership consultant, Jess learned that he cares deeply about growth (in mind, body, and passion) and about connecting with and developing others through shared experiences.
Jess’ life goal is to help individuals realize and reach their human potential. He started ActiveLeading, speaks at conferences, and works with groups to create experiences that build self-awareness and learning opportunities for individuals and teams. Self-awareness (understanding what is important to us and how others experience us) is critical to empowerment, effectiveness, success, and happiness. Through awareness (and a willingness to learn and adapt), we have the opportunity to improve each day: to grow our mind, our body, and our passion for life.
Jess earned a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration and a MBA from Cornell University’s SC Johnson College of Business. He lives and works in Ithaca, NY, with his wife, Jennifer Gudaz, the Senior Associate Director of Athletics at Cornell University. Jess is an avid traveler. He’s explored over 40 countries and finds that travel broadens his perspective, offers ideas, and creates connections with people and their cultures.
