“Working with Jon this past year, I learned not only to focus on results but also to build relationships with my team. Jon’s advice helped me to nurture a high-performance team, opening my mind with a strategic thinking process that includes stepping back from day-to-day operations and intentionally carving out time to formulate long-term goals. The subtle change created a win-win situation for me to prioritize my time on the most important things while empowering my team to develop their decision-making skills.
When it comes to leadership, Jon has a lot of insights to offer. Jon also worked with me on time management to lead meetings more effectively and on succinct business communication to be more influential. I was fortunate to have Jon as my coach. He does not just talk about being a leader; he walks the walk of a servant leader. ” – Li Cheng, Manager, Financial Reporting, Credit Union
