Are You an Owner?

My mission in life is to bring order to chaos and clarity to confusion so that owners can effectively live their truth and thrive.  My mission statement hinges on the concept of ownership.  If you’re fully owning your choices and your life and yet you still feel like you have enough time for the things that are important to you, coaching is a great tool.

Order and Clarity Matter

The primary focus of my coaching is helping people be more productive and take action in their lives so that they feel like their time and more importantly their live’s are used effectively.  Often this starts with getting really clear about who they are, what they really want, and together, figuring out productive strategies to get there.

If your life is full of chaos, reaching your full potential achieving what you really want is going to be really difficult.  We’ll work together to bring order to that chaos so that you have more time to make progress and achieve the things you really want.

Action Matters Too

In addition to getting clear about what you want and need more of in your life the chances of it having a lasting impact are pretty low unless you do something.  Co-active coaching, the model I have trained under and am certified in, creates a unique balance between “knowledge” or “being” and “action.”  You can have the biggest epiphany about your life or obtain the most valuable knowledge, but unless you do something with it, it’s simply that.  In our work together we’ll also create ways for you to take action and break through those things have previously held you back.

Working with John has given me consistent accountability and helped me stay on track in both business and life. I always find myself looking forward to our calls as his energy and positivity are simply contagious and I end every call feeling inspired, affirmed and ready to tackle my week. John truly has a knack for asking the right questions and connecting the dots in a way that always seem to create answers I didn’t even know I had in me. I walk away from every discussion having learned something about myself, my process, and nailed down concrete goals for the upcoming week. — Anthony Ongaro

Other Areas I Help People In

In addition to personal and professional coaching I also help people in two areas I’m very passionate about.  A bulk of my professional career has focused on managing projects and facilitating meetings. This experience has given me the opportunity to hone these skills in a variety of environments.  The underlying foundation of both of these areas is finding new and creative ways to maximize your productivity.

  • Project Management
    • You have a project that you need help managing or getting back on track.
    • I’ll manage the project for you or coach you through the process of being a more effective project manager.
  • Meeting facilitation
    • You want to have better meetings that are a valuable use of time and satisfying to the attendees.
    • I’ll facilitate your meetings or teach you my proven techniques in the context of your own environment
