For Individuals: Breakthrough Leadership Coaching

Are you the kind of leader everyone wants to follow?

The Point

“Everyone needs a coach,” Microsoft founder Bill Gates opened one of his famous TED talks with these words. Former Google chairman Eric Schmidt echoed these sentiments during an interview in which he shared that the best advice he had ever received was to hire a coach. Engaging a collaborative partner in your professional development empowers you to take your leadership to the next level, no matter where you are now.

In today’s rapidly changing marketplace, leaders often feel overwhelmed, pulled in all directions, stressed, caught in the middle and stuck. In fact, 80 percent of leaders say they would benefit from working with a coach. Yet, many leaders lack organizational support and don’t know where to turn for help.

Is this why you are here now?

Testimonials.
Ryan Sievers, CPA, Partner
Armanino LLP

Jon was a great sounding board. He listened carefully to understand the situation, asked prodding questions, and provided thoughtful insight along the way. He helped me look at situations and opportunities from all angles, point out considerations I may not have fully addressed. Jon’s “outsider’s” perspective was extremely helpful. He challenged my internal bias (whether intentional or otherwise) and made me address less comfortable issues head on. Finally, Jon is just a good guy to sit and talk with. Very personable, easy to talk to, and a very natural way of leading the conversation.

I had the opportunity to work with Jon as a coach for over two years. I can say with complete confidence that where I had begun as a leader to where am I am now has dramatically improved because of Jon. Jon helped me every step of the way to maximize my potential and grow that "leadership muscle" to help me best the best employee, father, husband I can be. I've been stretched, challenged, and motivated with such grace and respect. Thank you Jon!

West Coast Nonprofit Tax Practice Lead, Armanino LLP

Jon was a great coach during the year I was preparing to be promoted to Partner at my firm. He was able to help me strategize on effective ways to deal with a wide variety of challenges that came up during the year, including helping me reexamine unhelpful thought processes to spend my mental bandwidth in productive ways. He also did a great job keeping up with all the many players in my sphere, which made ongoing issues much faster to deal with because he always remembered who/what we had talked about last time. I felt supported and understood throughout the coaching process.

Li Cheng, CPA, CGMA, Manager of Financial Reporting

Working with Jon, 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. I was fortunate to have Jon as my coach. He does not just talk about being a leader; he walks the talk of a servant leader.

Robert Abramowitz, Partner
