John offers One on One Coaching, Group Coaching and facilitates two MasterMind Groups. Find out which fits your style and budget.

John only schedules 12 hours a week. This way he can focus on your needs. The schedule fills up quickly.
Each session has a written agenda. There is room for discussion but it isn’t a  therapy session. You will discuss what you want and what you need to do to achieve your goals. You will agree on the next set of tasks to be performed before your next session. Every session is recorded and will be sent to you immediately with an after-action report and a recap of your task list.
Group coaching follows a set twelve-week plan and repeats the first week of every quarter. There is homework and at the conclusion of the course, you will have your own specific plan.
MasterMind Groups are by invitation only of clients who have proven to be high performers and are looking to take their game to the next level. The two groups are divided into East Coast and West Coast time zones and meet online the first Wednesday night of the month.
