Dr. Jones is an AMAZING motivator and coach. He was the main speaker of our annual all staff training event and his passion, his stories and experiences kept me on the edge of my seat. I left his training feeling like I was ready to take on the world and become a better person and leader. Let me rephrase, I AM a better person and leader for attending his training. Thank you, Dr. Jones!
We are often exposed to others who profess to have the answers we need, new ideas by which to live, or even solutions to our most challenging situations. Whether in corporate retreats or organizational workshops, there are many facilitators and coaches who claim to have a new take on life. Dr. Jones is not one of those people. From his personal experiences as a young man in the MS delta and overcoming challenges in his life, you are introduced to a man who wishes to do nothing more than encourage you, listen to you, and walk alongside you as you figure out your life’s path. The way in which he intimately engages with people is disarming and reassuring because he is honest about his own struggles, but confident in the way in which he communicates how he deals with them. I am grateful for the ways in which he helped me grow and challenged me to pursue being a better human being and leader.
Dr. Jones’s presentation and coaching was uplifting, optimistic, and extremely timely considering all the challenges people have faced both personally and professionally this year. Our credit unions could not stop raving about his approach to leadership and the way he connected with them, even virtually. As you look to the future and how your teams can benefit from coaching, inspiration, and learning, I highly recommend you look at Dr. Jones as someone who can help transform your team.
Through the mentorship of Dr. Jones, he used his life experiences and lessons learned to help me with my personal and professional goals. He has the charisma to teach and develop leaders to ignite change and make an impact! His presentations were enthusiastic and always made a lasting impression. His leadership and coaching style gave me the opportunity to answer the question, "Why?" for myself, and examine the possible outcomes of my efforts."
