What our clients are saying:
John has wonderful leadership and management skills. He really understands people, and what motivates them. He has great ideas and furthermore leads the charge to see that they come full circle. A transformative individual and a visionary.
John is a transformational, intelligent thought leader. He just thinks differently from anyone I know. Somehow, he sees opportunities and angles that no one else sees and before anyone else sees them. His advice has taken our small family business to the next level and beyond. This style of coaching is amazing because I can get him anytime I need him. We do not need to have a scheduled meeting every month. He is always right in my pocket and I talk to him several times a week about just about anything. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Derrick and Jeanell Morgan
John has been helping our organization for over 10 years. His innovative ideas and ability to see beyond what is normal in our industry helps us create new events and fundraisers. With this new world of COVID-19 making things exceedingly difficult for fundraising, John helped us figure out ways to pivot and not just stay afloat, but almost thrive with virtual events. I highly recommend any organization use his services.
Paula M. Kielich

His positive energy rubs off on everyone around him and he has a way of getting the best out of teams. He is a rare find, and someone who can transform your organization.
Lars B. Eller
What I admire most about John is his leadership style. He is the kind of leader who serves -- the best kind of leader, in my opinion. John is about lifting other people up and cultivating a culture of service, leading strongly by his own example. He is about finding the strengths in others and leveraging those strengths for the greater good of any organization he's a part of, empowering everyone to feel that they have something valuable to contribute He is honest, trustworthy, and is a man who truly walks his talk. A true exemplar of exceptional leadership through service.
