Jonathan coaches business leaders and leadership teams to greater effectiveness. He accomplishes this through four key strategies:
o Using a systemic lens to distinguish between and deal with the influence of organizational and team dynamics on individual performance
o Helping clients to better understand how their performance compares to the expectations of key stakeholders
o Helping clients to improve key relationships and deal more effectively with conflict
o Assisting clients to identify and overcome important blind-spots and obstacles to greater effectiveness, including (but not limited to) how to manage their emotions
Jonathan has coached a variety of executives, within for-profit and not-for-profit companies, from mid-level and C-suite executives to the chairperson of a board of directors. During his career at American Express, Jonathan led cross-functional product development teams, oversaw a four million dollar technology budget, served as a consultant with executives in Fortune 500 companies, and was the recipient of multiple awards for quality and innovation.
Jonathan has lived in the USA, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Brazil and is fluent in English, French, Spanish, German and Portuguese. This experience is not only helpful in working with multinational executives and their teams but has proven critical in identifying and working with subtle differences in individual and organizational cultures and sub-cultures.
