“The prouty i•will program is a completely different approach to leadership growth. It is an immersive, transformational experience that gives attendees confidence to accomplish and pursue new areas that they may have historically been apprehensive to try. The program allows attendees the time and space to look within themselves to understand their ‘why’ and tools to apply that to the environment they live and work in. It helped our leaders think deeply about their leadership brand and what changes they needed to make to ensure they show up authentically as a leader every day.”

“The prouty i•will program was very well done by the Prouty team and I can’t say enough good things about it. The program was very comprehensive, and I was both surprised and impressed by how the learning modules flowed and tied concepts together to help each individual in the program grow from the experience. It included quality speakers, activities to stretch your comfort zone, and a great team of impressive women who put it on. It was fun, insightful, and rewarding to be a part of the program – something I looked forward to with each event.”
Your prouty i•will Guides
prouty i•will is the realized vision of Adrienne Jordan, Kristin Jonason, and other Prouty Project team members who saw the opportunity to provide something different to women leaders seeking to be their best whole selves, not just their best selves at work.
Backed by Prouty Project’s 30+ year tenure in strategic planning and leadership development and their belief that women can be successful in multiple fields, they created prouty i•will. Adrienne and Kristin are honored to be your guides for this transformational program.
Adrienne Jordan | Senior Consultant, The Prouty Project
An abundance of purpose-filled women have led, inspired, and supported Adrienne through her journey, and she is truly grateful for each of them. They have all shaped and informed her life and 20+ year career journey with multiple organizations including General Mills, Minneapolis Public Schools and the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee.
Recognizing those women’s powerful and positive force in her life, Adrienne is a strong champion for women’s empowerment, as a mentor for young girls and women, and through boards and committees of women-focused organizations such as WomenVenture, WithAll, and Play Like a Girl.
Adrienne’s hope is every woman who experiences prouty i•will connects deeply with her own uniqueness, inspires and leads others genuinely, and stretches faithfully into her purpose.

Samantha Harris | Consultant, The Prouty Project
Samantha brings experience coaching people in confidence and mindset. Supporting others through overcoming obstacles is something she strives to do personally and professionally. She comes to Prouty with years of experience as an improviser (performer, teacher, coach, and student) and a working professional.
Samantha believes that learning and growth is never over and seeks experiences that push and stretch her to the next level. Over the years, she had women-identifying leaders who pushed her to grow beyond what she could ever imagine. By challenging her mindset, her limited beliefs, and offering her tools to overcome obstacles herself, she was able to advance her career to the next level. Samantha has applied those tools as a leader at Capella University where she was an Academic Coach and Supervisor and then again as the Manager of Patient Experience at the University of Minnesota.
Tammy Pearson | Associate Consultant, The Prouty Project
Over the last ten years, Tammy has devoted herself to the study of theatre and creative writing. She has a vast array of teaching experience that ranges from cultivating young minds to guiding collegiate level students. Her belief that every person has the potential to learn, grow, and become better, informs her every interaction, and enables her to meet people where they are at on their life’s journey. As a true “multipotentialite”, Tammy is always trying new things and adding new skills to her vast list of hobbies and talents. She has a penchant for out-of-the-box thinking and has spent years helping others find their way both personally and professionally.
Tammy believes that the experiences and learnings that each woman takes away from their time in prouty i•will can truly transform their trajectory in life and not only pave the way for their own success, but can create ripples that also positively impact the women and girls around them.
Tammy has a Master’s in Fine Arts from Hamline University.
