As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.
Prior to joining the John Maxwell Team, I had the privilege of serving this nation in the U.S. Marine Corps followed by a career in law enforcement where I served in various details including investigations, SWAT team leader, hostage negotiator, field training officer (FTO), patrol, and school resource officer (SRO).
During my five years as our department's first SRO, I had the privilege of coaching middle school, high school, and alternative school students. I used several outlets for this which included the facilitation of our region's only SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) chapter and through the implementation of the SCOPE/Liferide program (Schools and Cops Opting for Positive Education). At that time, I was one of only five officers in the nation certified in this program who went on to successfully implement this program. In fact, I was given my own office in the high school counseling center, assigned my own classroom space with a time slot during school hours. Ultimately, our department's goal was to rebuild relationships between law enforcement, students, parents, schools, and the social service agencies that regularly serve these families. I found significant and measurable success by empowering, inspiring, and educating students to become powerful influencers in the community on the issue of youth violence, substance abuse, and conflict resolution. I was proud to have coached our students to become Win/Win peer facilitators where they could serve as peer facilitators during conflict resolution sessions between feuding students.
In late 2014, 15 years after leaving the law enforcement profession, I started to step out to do some private coaching and consulting. I hosted several seminars and conferences. In March 2016, I took a huge leap into the world of life and leadership coaching. Oh, that moment when you recognize your purpose and the discovery of doing what you were meant to do all along. I had rediscovered coaching. There were many things I enjoyed about law enforcement, but coaching during my SRO years was what I loved the most.
I chose to specialize in leadership and mindset coaching. I chose the mindset niche because all people, all over the world, within any demographic, have to contend with their mindsets. Mindsets are inescapable. It is just a matter of whether your mindset is serving you properly and effectively in fulfilling your purpose, your dreams, and your goals. All mindsets are identifiable and can be coached if allowed.
Of all my achievements, I am most proud of and blessed by my wonderful 32-year marriage to my wife Michelle. We are the proud parents of four amazing adult children, one who recently returned from his second tour in the Middle East and is now guarding U.S. Embassies as a U.S. Marine.
My wife and I reside in San Diego, CA. We enjoy an array of beautiful relationships that have deeply enriched our lives, with people all over the country and all over the world. Bottom line, we are about connecting through relationships and adding value to people's lives. I totally love the privilege of empowering, inspiring, encouraging, and equipping people to fulfill their purpose in life, to realize their dreams, even make them come alive where they can dream once again, and achieve success in meeting their daily goals.
Since I love connecting, relationships, and adding value to the lives of others, becoming a part of The John Maxwell Team made complete sense. The relationship with The John Maxwell Team is a perfect right. John C. Maxwell, an incredible leader and thought leader on leadership, has impacted my life over the years and continues to do so to this day. As a certified coach, trainer, and speaker with The John Maxwell Team, I assure you your own life will be impacted.
