Why John?

What I Offer

With more than 40 years of experience at the highest levels of the US and international business communities, I understand how businesses run and how the behavior and performance of executives influence successful business outcomes. Having completed two of the most comprehensive, thorough and demanding coaching programs in the United States, I have learned how to apply a proven set of coaching principles to help executives make demonstrable and positive behavior changes.

As the only coach at JDR Consulting, I personally manage each aspect of every engagement, and have the flexibility to adapt my approach to suit different corporate cultures and environments.

I have been described as approachable, honest but kind, patient and respectful. I believe that my age and life experiences are assets, especially when working with senior-level executives. Few coaches offer my combination of industry experience, search background and the thoroughness and rigor of the proven Hudson state-of-the-art coaching methodology.

“John brings an exceptional blend of skills to any engagement.  The combination of many years as an executive recruiter, along with his more recent experience and training in executive coaching, provides John with a powerful tool kit that he uses effectively.  Most important, however, is that he has the ability to connect with executives and gain their confidence and trust.”
~ CEO of a multi-billion-dollar public company

“John has built great credibility with us by having conducted multiple, very successful, coaching engagements.  He may know our culture better than we do.”
