About John

I write stories you can read in less than five minutes, featuring diverse professionals whose tips on applying mindfulness, learning agility, and storytelling will help you love your career and enhance your quality of life.

These characters face familiar pain points: nonstop change, accelerating technological disruption, and the collective “noise” that grows louder each day. The impact, for these professionals and for many of us, has been confusion, distraction, and stress. Until, however, each of these individuals chooses to do something new: practicing mindfulness, learning agility, and storytelling habits, and growing them into strengths…strengths that respond to change rather than just react.

Strengths that you can develop as well.

Don’t settle for the confusion, distraction, and stress. You’re stronger than that, and capable of much more.

Choose to do something new. Today. Start with this blog and join our learning community to receive exclusive content each month with timely guidance on applying mindfulness, learning agility, and storytelling.


I honed my communication skills as a journalist, interviewing music and publishing executives, as well as politicians and business owners. After earning a graduate degree, I served as a non-profit leader and then worked in financial services, building my toolbox and learning about the coaching profession. I then moved into the health care and wireless industries as a full-time executive coach and talent development strategist, and have since coached hundreds of individuals at all professional levels while continuing to write a ton of content.
