A Deeper Dive was the theme of this 2019 TEDx Event at YoungCirclePark in Hollywood, FL. I shared a personal story of love and loss and how unexpected life events can inform a better awareness of the hidden and often under appreciated value of interpersonal conflict... a reality of life that we can all utilize
to enhance our most important relationships.
Leadership development through experiential-based training and coaching is a way I have served my clients for over 20 years. Check out this clip of the first 8 minutes of a full day training for Leadership Hollywood Class 42 demonstrating what it takes to establish a clear context for challenging and rewarding
leadership development. Participants had a blast!
I designed The 4D Transformative Coaching Certification Program™ as a unique on-line opportunity in the "Other Help Industry"... a way for professionals to significantly enhance their positive impact on others by utilizing 64 Core Competencies in Coaching with a focus on 16 existential distinctions along with 18 proven social science models for enhancing relationships, maximizing performance and producing results !
“I started working with Jay in early 2015 when he began training & coaching me in personal and professional leadership. Jay is honest, direct, transparent, empathic and very professional. I am a journalist and director of a not-for-profit organization for homeless people in Madrid, Spain, and have become a certified coach through Jay’s instruction and guidance. I admire Jay's values, his sense of excellence and his high level of commitment and responsibility in transforming people... It's in his DNA!”
“I have taken dozens of workshops and obtained certifications in an array of leadership areas. With the 4D TCCP experiential learning methodology, participants are empowered to discover and create their own learning. This unique approach, supported with an evidence-based, neuroscience driven learning reinforcement platform created out of Harvard (Qstream) is being used at top tier universities and is second to none. No coaching program that I know of today is using this technology. Most rely on regurgitation models in which the learning quickly erodes. 4D TCCP is designed for long term usage of what is taught, discovered and ultimately mastered.”
"Jay provided coaching to me over a period of six months. I really enjoyed working with him and made huge strides in my own professional growth. Jay helped me understand how to create more space for honesty and openness with my team as well as how to navigate conflict. Throughout our coaching sessions, Jay also taught me how I could start to coach my own direct reports, which I have found hugely valuable. My team really enjoyed learning about what I was doing in my coaching sessions and I was also able to teach them how practice more honesty and deal with conflict. I received many compliments from my direct reports as well as my boss in terms of how much I had changed for the better. I highly recommend Jay as an executive coach!.”
“Since enrolling in the TCCP in 2018 coaching has taken on a whole new meaning for me and has been placed in a completely different light. It now has a much broader and deeper meaning with a focus on people and relationships and how all of that is tied to achieving what you really want in life. As a University Professor, I think the TCCP is very well designed didactically with clear goals and valuable models. In addition, I have experienced personal coaching from Jay and I know him to be dedicated, effective, focused on detail, loving and confronting at the same time. I consistently apply the lessons from this program in my work as well as my personal life!”
“Jay’s communication leaves nothing to chance or misinterpretation. Clear and meaningful communication is part of his stock-in-trade! He has a strong capacity to make sophisticated content easier to understand through comfortably paced delivery and a style that encouraged learner engagement all along the way. His unique approach to coaching often empowers professionals to establish clear personal development plans for the first time in their career, allowing them to grow as leaders versus just better individual contributors.”
"Having known Jay for almost 25 years, I have had the unique experience of being his friend, business partner, confidant and client. Jay is one of only three people I would entrust with the lives of my family and it would be with zero hesitation. His integrity and honesty are unparalleled and his professionalism is surpassed only by his commitment to excellence in every endeavor. Jay's insights and coaching have been invaluable to me. He has challenged me to new levels of self-awareness, provided feedback to forward my progress and delivered honest, direct coaching which has resulted in an exponential leap in my results. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to get to the next level in their business and their life."
"Jay is an excellent facilitator who delivers quality information in a fun learning environment. Our Leadership Hollywood has had him facilitate the Opening Retreat a few times and always look forward to his facilitation! He is bright, kind, witty, reliable and a great hire for anyone!"
"Jay has a clear grasp of what it takes to catapult people to their highest and best. His style of mentorship / coaching / training is a valuable addition to corporate teams or executives who are looking to improve their productivity, enhance their ability to work with others, or simply see what has stopped them from achieving their goals."
“Jay’s coaching far exceeded what I expected with great content, dialogue and help related to the training and individual development. The work and activities will greatly increase my skills and abilities in the field and even at home. Overall - excellent training and support!! Jay did a super job.”
“I met Jay while attending a conference he gave in Madrid on conflict resolution and emotional intelligence. He was also my coach and teacher in his Transformative Coaching Certification Program. Jay is very professional and demonstrates tremendous commitment towards his work and every person involved in his program. He is intuitive, direct and clear as a coach. He is inspiring and empowering with people to support them in breaking through their boundaries to achieve their goals. As a teacher, he is rigorous and honest and always prepared to listen and support his students, allowing them to discover their own way towards improving their skills and reaching their highest level of achievement.”
“I hired Jay after attending his seminar in "Leadership and Communication.” Jay touched on several factors I knew would help take my career to the next level. I worked with him for several months and achieved more than expected. Jay is honest, direct, holds you accountable, knowledgable and supportive. There were times Jay "hit that button", and frustrated me, but it was at those times that I made the biggest strides. I would highly recommend Jay if you want to take your business, team or company to the next level with grand results!”
“Jay is an innovative organizational consultant who understands the needs and challenges of building a great company. I have worked with Jay since the inception of my organization in 2006. With his guided expertise we have created employee retention, a large client base, and bottom line results. If you are looking for someone to support your organization in stepping up to its next level there is none better in the business than Jay.”
