The Business DNA Process:
High Performance Leadership+Culture
Passionate, focused, excited and driven to make a difference, I have been working in human resources and the personal development field for 20 years. This work is the culmination of a lifetime studying the great minds in philosophy, psychology and business. My work uses some of the most effective systems and techniques for personal and business transformation.
In the corporate world, I lead two highly successful business turnarounds. Recognized for consistently high standards, outstanding personal and team performance, I focused progressively on business culture, creating a powerful relationship with all stakeholders.
Advanced leadership skills gained working with the Anthony Robbins Organization, Steven Covey, Ken Blanchard and many others brought a level of empowerment to staff and management which delivered an enriching experience for customer and employee alike.
A flat management model, and alignment of Vision, Mission, Purpose and Values in all facets of the organization delivered powerful stakeholder experiences and nationally recognized, award winning results.
Specialties: Confidence, Success Mindset, Sales training, marketing strategy, advanced communication skills training, business and interpersonal success strategies. I use advanced psychological and interpersonal models, both cutting edge and ancient systems which deliver massive growth in personal and business results. Public speaking, training and crisis management are also areas of significant personal experience and effectiveness.

Johnnie Marie Urban
Life Success Coach
Jack is a detailed oriented person that goes above and beyond when it comes to helping others. He has the unique ability to be able to size up a situation and make the immediate corrections so that things run smoothly. Heart centered and with the gift of conversation, Jack is a must have person in your circle of friends and coworkers.
RN Home Health at N&D Home Health
Jack is an expert on assessing employee-employer relationships and was very helpful in analyzing certain behavior patterns that were not effective in my business and life relationships. Through his coaching I was able to think outside of my position and utilize his emphasis on avoiding a reactive stance versus an analytical, proactive method of dealing with inevitable difficult work and personal relationships.

My team and I worked with Jack as a business consultant for several months. He was honest, knowledgable, and sincere. He always gave it a 120%.
He helped me understand issues with the way I was doing business and helped me make a better relationship with my team. I highly recommend Jack.
Value Creation Accounting Officer & Senior System Steward
Jack's consistently constructive and positive outlook is something I have learned I can count on from him all the time, along with knowing that he is listening very deeply. Jack listen's from a place of genuine concern for everyone's well being and full expression. His depth of knowledge on what it means to be human, and how each of us can find our way to being at peace with ourselves and in full expression of our potential, never ceases to surprise and delight me. I know that anything he hears, both stated and unstated, will be kept in strictest confidence, and used always to enable me to achieve my heart's desires. I would recommend him for serious consideration as a trusted advisor and valued ally to anyone.

I had the fortune to meet Jack when he visited England and we quickly connected and stayed in touch. Since then, I have had the opportunity to get to know him and work with him on a number of occasions.
Jack is an extremely knowledgeable bussinessman. He also knows how to use this knowledge to help others and he has a high level of people skills; combine these together and you have someone that stands out in a crowd and can help you make more of your life, in whatever area you need to improve in.
If you have the opportunity to coonect with him, take it up as I did - you'll benefit in a lot of ways.
