John has very strong executive coaching and counseling skills. He is able to bring perspective that the executive doesn't always see and work with senior leaders to enhance their leadership skills. He also recognizes the strengths of a leader, and identifies ways to make those strengths more visible to others!
Annie Livingston, Leader, Global Recruiting
When I was first introduced to the idea of utilizing an executive coach, I wasn’t sure what to expect or what benefits it would offer. However, after working with John over the course of several months (and now years), I appreciate the value of coaching. John helped me to challenge my own thinking and focus on priorities. John uses thought-provoking questions in a non-threatening style and makes suggestions that I can choose to use. I have been better able to understand my personal strengths and opportunities and put together a game plan to make improvements in both my professional and personal life. John is a thoughtful and sensitive coach with a great sense of humor.
Jeff Badamo, Human Resources Business Partner at Bayer Material Science
John is a unique and talented coach. He is probably the best listener that I have ever worked with; and that is a tremendous value in our fast paced work environment. John always shows up professional, ready to contribute and without fail has something new and interesting to share. Working with John is a pleasure and his coaching clients not only get the desired business results, but often find their experience transformative and life changing. John is smart, driven and diverse while at the same time humble and down to earth. I highly recommend his work as a coach and professional. He truly believes in the work and has his clients' best interest at heart... he is a lifelong learner and inspires by example. John has a high degree of integrity and humor. You can count on him to be honest, sincere and a coach without judgment. I highly recommend working with John for those who are truly committed to making changes or reaching a goal - he is the real deal.
Brenda Vester, Vice President – Business Development at Lee, Hecht, Harrison
John worked closely with me to develop a training program for Executive Assistants that was unique and thought-provoking. He facilitated many of the meetings using creative coaching techniques to draw the strengths of the participants to the surface. He also provided one-on-one coaching to the assistants which was one of the highest rated aspects noted in the evaluations of our participants. He is energetic, compassionate and skilled in coaching not only executives but professionals in all corporate functions.
