Executive, startup and leadership team coach; over 25 years of seeing clients succeed.
Yes but you need to spend a fair amount of time in person so that you'll be effective together.
"Date" online for the co-founder but once you've found a likely partner, spend time together to make sure it's a good fit.
While at McKesson, J. Mike provided me an opportunity to do some of my best OD work to date. He was a results-oriented colleague without defining the processes to get there. I always looked forward to our meetings and found him to be a consumate professional and business partner. He provided direction, insight and the framework for the business while being an inspration to me and others. He clearly understands business, the importance of human capital and the profession of human resources.
Mike is an extraordinarily great manager; extremely helpful in aiding my efforts in a very under resourced staffing team. Mike was always willing to make time for me as a manager and was an excellent communicator. Mike possesses very strong negotiating skills and his demeanor allows him to bring calm to stressful situations, giving him the ability to resolve and come to solution easily.
J. Mike is very supportive and thoughtful manager. I learned quite a lot from him I am very impressed with how he approached HR and how it should support the goals of the company. J.Mike was instrumental in leading many strategic HR activities thats been embraced by the company. I would work with J. Mike again in a heartbeat!
Mike helped faciliate a global offsite for the top finance principals companywide. He played an instrumental role in the idea, design, and execution phases for multiple sessions. He is a great thought partner and a great collaborator.
Mike is a highly competent, focused and committed leader and a top notch strategic thinker. His calm demeanor and creativity are hallmarks of his time at Barclays. I value Mike as a client, a colleague and a friend.
J. Mike is truly a master professional when it comes to dealign with clients and exploring every possible avenue for an answer to any challenge. He sees the answers to complex problem solving issues when others cannot. You will only win when you consult him on any project and you will win BIG!
J. Mike was the first career coach I worked with. It was an excellent process. He helped me articulate the strengths I could bring to a new organization and then expertly coached me through the process strengthening and expanding my network in a meaningful way. In the end, it was an invaluable process and greatly helped me zero in on the right next career move.
J. Mike is an excellent small business coach and group facilitator. Took our practice to the next level by coaching us and guiding our communication. We wouldn't be where we are without him. -Jennifer Brokaw, MD
I had a terrific experience working with J. Mike, and I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, personable, and pleasant to work with. Highly recommended.
J Mike was the senior HR executive for a company built upon the quality of its people. During good years he managed growth predictably and reliably. During hard times he managed a rational, ethical and sensitive process of scaling back. Jmike provided steady guidance, predictable outcomes and thoughtfully facilitated group functions at all levels of the organization.
J Mike is a really cost-effective intervention with teams and individuals. I worked with him in both capacities. He is the best I've seen with pattern recognition and pragmatic interventions. He helps you see the "blind spots" and focus on change that enhances performance. His style is easy going but no nonsense. And he makes it fun.
