Jon

Meet The Coach

My Philosophy and Methodology: It all starts with one word: "Improvements." Whether it is efficiency, performance, productivity or increased capability, I know your time and money is as valuable as mine is. I make it my personal goal and reason I get up in the morning to make sure that you feel the relationship is worth 10 times what you pay me. However YOU wish to evaluate the relationship... some base it on top line revenue growth, bottom line retained earnings, market penetration, time management, better work environment and company culture, reduced personal stress, or more free time away from business... etc. As long as at the end of the day we make noticeable "Improvements" to your life... it has been a good day... a very good day!

My Approach: There are two proprietary underlying themes to my approach that I have developed over the years. First, I approach all challenges or problems as the lead architect, slowly breaking down the needs piece by piece to formulate a solution concept and objectives. Once this is achieved, designing a resolution unfolds naturally. The second part of my approach is how I work with people. Every person needs to be coached differently. Whether it is by support, collaboration or intervention, my style is tailored to the needs of each individual and their situation to achieve the desired results.

My Process: It all initiates with a phone call. We discuss your needs, challenges and goals. We then will explore the areas where I can assist you. We then together develop a step-by-step process. My engagement experience has ranged from 1 month to 3 years. But regardless of where and for how long we journey together, when the journey ends there will be a friendship that remains.
