“I came to J.L. for his prescience in understanding statistical trends and projections and data-driven cultural leadership. In addition to this, I have found him to be an invaluable advisor on so much more. J.L. offers a wealth of lived experience, research, and an expansive professional network that makes him an extremely effective Executive Coach to help process and strategize the organizational challenges that require the type of expertise that J.L. offers. Being a CEO can be an isolating experience, but J.L. helps me break through my personal roadblocks, acting as a thought partner I can trust to provide honest, direct, and insightful feedback. J.L. is an invaluable Executive Coach who has brought me confidence, clarity, and the capacity to achieve so much more than I could otherwise.”

"I appreciate how J.L. worked with us when our situation was different than other models, we wanted other types of examples, or needed additional support.  We definitely saw improved outcomes and new ways of thinking."

Steve Hoffman

Executive Director, Centre College's Norton Center for the Arts


"We found the experience of working with J.L. to be both productive and challenging.  Calmly but firmly, he encouraged us to question some of our assumptions and most of our practices.  By doing so, we were able to make sales advances we had long desired.  J.L. deftly combines a thorough understanding of data with years of field experience and an awareness of best practices from across the country."

Mark Fields

“J.L. has the keen ability to navigate difficult conversations around organizational opportunities and challenges.  He was instrumental in 'moving the needle' at two organizations where I've had the pleasure of working with him.  J.L. works hard to observe your organization's business morale and work habits to ensure results.”

Andrew Truscott

Former Director of Marketing and Development, Delaware Theatre Company

"J.L. has been an invaluable member of Vocal Arts Nashville where he is board chair.  I have always been impressed with how tirelessly he works to help artists achieve their goals.  His data-driven approach to problem-solving and his depth of experience would make him an invaluable asset to any organization. Most of all it is his unflappable nature that sets him apart.  No problem is too big.  No conversation is too complicated.  Everything he does is approached with calm stability that sets everyone at ease and makes them ready to meet opportunities head-on."
