Here's what happens when our clients take that first step and make one phone call

John has served as my professional coach for two years.  His decades of leadership experience in healthcare have proven extremely valuable to me personally. 

He is excellent at both asking questions and probing for truth.  He is a wise and winsome advisor/advice giver.  I have grown professionally as a result of our relationship.  I am increasingly confident in my work and believe I am more effective and productive. 

John is also a great collaborator and connector.   He has introduced me to like-minded professionals in his network and I have benefited.  I am very grateful to call John a coach and friend.

M.N. - County & City Area Agency on Aging - Director / Associate Director

Each year I search for that special graduation speaker. Someone who will leave a lasting impression and speak truth that will resonate throughout our student's lives. I specifically wanted a strong, faithful man to impart Biblical wisdom and leadership skills to our students. in this difficult year. 

I found that speaker in John Gardner. Through his well prepared speech, John inspired our students to live intentionally using many Biblical principles and relatable examples. He is a motivating speaker and a great example of a strong Godly man.
