Client Reviews

Juanita, both the one on one or small group sessions and the facilitated discussions with leaders were incredibly valuable. Your ability to listen,

ask questions, offer advice, and translate our experiences to real learning and accountability for our leaders was truly incredible. I am often left in disbelief thinking about the transformation you were able to bring given the inherent system oppression and power dynamics that are infused in our workplace and lives. 


One of the qualities that makes your work unique is your ability to be fluid and responsive to your clients' needs and the situations you are called to address. Inherent in this is your ability to listen for what's really underneath surface level concerns. By attending to the deeper issues and avoiding seemingly easy (but ineffective) solutions, you are able to facilitate real change, both for individuals and organizations. This work is only possible because of your fundamental understanding of and ability to communicate how power works in relation to leadership, race, gender, and oppression more broadly.

I have learned and benefited more as a leader from our work with Juanita Range than any other coach, consultant, or learning opportunity in the entirety of my professional life. Her intervention and unique approach transformed our team culture, healed legacy conflicts, and built skill, trust, and cohesion. She equipped us with vital tools for living into our own mission and values as an organization. There are no words to communicate how grateful I am for the opportunity to partner with RMC!

The work we did together as an executive group at Instrument was deeply transformational to the process of work for leaders collaborating on advancing an organization forward, for myself as an executive leader and really for myself as person for how I walk through the world every day now. Juanita guided us through deeply strategic and creative (yet approachable) tools for navigating complex organizational issues and related these strategies to both complex and simple problems to make it understandable at multiple altitudes. From understanding how to name and navigate power dynamics to gaining exceptional and empathetic communication tools, I am forever a better leader because of our engagement with RMC and our organization is too.

As I prepare to leave the organization where I've worked for over twenty years, I'd like to share that one of the highlights has been working with Juanita Range. The Culture-Cultivation Program has given the staff an opportunity to live into transformational agreements, that encourage mutual respect and understanding. On a personal level, working with Juanita on a one-to-one basis has helped me to recognize that my insights and intuitions are valid and valuable. Juanita is an extraordinary group and individual facilitator and I highly recommend her to any and all organizations that wish to transform the workplace dynamic.

The RMC team is professional, kind, and caring, but does not compromise their values to please or placate their client(s). one hundred % recommend RMC's services to any organization or corporation that wants to transform the way in which their staff interacts. Their agreements are a key tool in teaching staff respect and understanding of their colleagues. I discovered too late that the gift of working with the RMC team, is the ability to access time with one or more members of the team outside group meetings. That is a rare commodity.

I find working with Juanita Range a joy. Her ability to find the underlying issues to evaluate a situation with clear eyed, empathetic understanding helps me better grapple with myriad challenges posed by complex working environments. She has helped me more clearly understand my own motivations, which provided me a measure of control over reactions not previously available. She also helps me understand how best to alter negative patterns and establish positive ones, and her presence in my life has been an unexpected blessing.

Working with Juanita was transformational both personally and professionally.  She helped me understand issues around power, race, and supervision with much more clarity.  She was both challenging and supportive as our team worked through difficult, emotional material and issues. She provided many "a-ha" moments during our time together which helped me as I learned to work with my staff differently. My eyes were opened to the experiences of women of color on our team in much deeper and more authentic ways than they had been. 


Our team has gained the ability to trust more, approach equity issues in new ways, and has grown together in ways that make our team feel more cohesive. Now that our time with Juanita has come to a close, we are equipped to continue this work on our own and we continue to improve.

My staff and I had the incredible opportunity to work with Juanita for a full year. When the project first started, we anticipated that we would learn and grow in our understanding of power dynamics, communication, and conflict transformation, which we did, but I don't think any of us could visualize at that point how truly powerful, healing, and transformative our experience working with Juanita would be. 


I have worked with a number of facilitators and consultants over the years, usually for one-time trainings or short term consultation on particular strategic projects or issues. What made our experience with Juanita unique is her personal and relational approach. Juanita has a powerful ability to draw individuals out in an empathetic and yet challenging way, mirroring back truths that need to be heard and perhaps strengths and opportunities that we might not be able or ready to see.

Juanita has an extraordinary ability to understand the dynamics in a situation or group, however deep and layered they might be, and begin to sort them out at a pace, and in an order, that creates safety for all. She taught me to accept that many emotions and feelings can be present at once, and that there isn't always urgency to find a resolution for them all at the same time. Acknowledging that the many experiences exist is as important, if not more important, than solving them. She taught me to say things out loud, with intentionality, in order to align parties and identify where we are misaligned, without fear of the misalignment. Most importantly, she taught me to be direct and kind with my expectations or experience in a situation, speaking directly to the person(s) who impacted me instead of with others. Beyond her many teachings, her presence is a gift, and her investment in an individual's growth is deep and intentional.

Range Mediation inspired deep introspection into my own experience, habits, biases, and patterned behavior within the wider organization. I was impressed with their thorough process, empathy, and true expertise every step of the way. They provided perspective and tools for every situation we brought to them from how to navigate challenging conversations to career management for folks from a wide variety of backgrounds to day-to-day operations and their unintended impacts on individuals. I have been and will continue to recommend them to businesses who need support navigating conflict (1:1 or at scale), deepening their personal understanding of equity and diversity, and changing their organization at the fundamental level.

Beda Calhoun

Group Executive Director


Two years ago, I accepted what I thought was my dream job as a nonprofit COO. I arrived to discover an organization in crisis due to rapid growth as well as strategic and cultural misalignment. Despite my best leadership efforts, I felt absolutely “stuck” on how to move the organization forward. Enter Range Mediation and Consulting (RMC). Juanita’s understanding of group dynamics as well as organizational development provided a much needed balance to addressing our issues. She determined that communication and conflict resolution were at the root of all of our challenges. Juanita proposed a plan to introduce communication norms and tools into our culture that, once understood and practiced, would allow us to have deeper conversations around power, structure, and race. As a leader, I never felt alone throughout the process. Juanita supported us through practical tools as well as challenged us on thinking that served as roadblocks to doing something different than the status quo. “Thank you” seems too small a gesture for Juanita’s work. I strongly recommend RMC to improve your organization’s culture.

I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to partner with and work with Juanita and Range Mediation as part of our organization’s journey to become a more inclusive, equitable and human-centered organization. I’ve had the opportunity to participate in numerous diversity, equity and inclusion trainings over the years - and the intensity, trust and intimacy of the Range Mediation’s process, was unlike any other I’ve experienced. As a woman of color, and also an executive, I appreciated the welcoming, open and safe space that Juanita created with each connection and engagement. The biggest impact I saw and felt from our initial work is the enhancement and evolution on communication and collaboration, especially across our executive leadership team. This propelled us forward in many ways, and truly helped to accelerate the ongoing transformation our organization is seeking.

Jessica Hartley

Vice President of Strategy


Juanita helped our executive team develop a shared language and open up conversations that were previously difficult to have. I can't thank her enough for expertly facilitating this work, and educating us all along the way.

JD Hooge

Chief Creative Officer


The time spent working with Juanita and Range Mediation has been invaluable, and something I wish everyone at Instrument could experience. Our work together has changed my perspective and approach for the better and has improved how I show up both as a leader and a human. 

Juanita does a fantastic job of defining and building on core definitions and perspectives for inclusivity and deconstructing power dynamics and teaches the tools for creating honest safe spaces to allow for hard and necessary conversations. I regularly find myself referencing back to practices learned through our work together, and have felt more empowered to have hard, productive conversations as a result of what I've learned from her.
