"A leader is one who knows the way,

goes the way, and shows the way."

“Inspiration shows up in so many wonderful ways. It can take the form of a movie, landscape, poem or crisis. In my case, it showed up through my Dad. While only on this earth for a short 52 years, he had a spirit about him that inspired everyone he touched. He was passionate while being compassionate. His inspiration is at the core of my work and his legacy will live in and through me forever. 


“These values and life lessons are integrated in the rewarding consulting work and results-coaching interactions I have with my executive clients.  Approaching challenges with a sense of curiosity versus judgment allows immediate growth and an introspective view on the opportunities at all of our fingertips.


“It would be my sincere pleasure to talk with you and your team members to take your performance in an exciting direction not only yielding increased revenue but real personal development that will last a lifetime.”


Strengths Overview and Experience

John excels in the application of executive coaching, leadership development, consultative sales management, team building, and multi-site business management. An expert in leadership development and change management, John has designed, delivered, and facilitated strategic planning retreats; team chartering and alignment work as well as supported mission, vision work and guided organizational change projects.

He has been fortunate to have worked with talented Fortune 500 companies around the world, and he shares current feedback on recent projects:

I have engaged John Arnold’s coaching skills several times with great success. First for myself to provide a sounding board in my then-role as Division President of a large company, then for my team, and then for some challenging individuals on my team.  Several years later, I engaged John to evaluate and coach a senior level executive who was struggling with our new ownership.

In each case John came to the assignment by asking the right—often-hard questions—and with a clear vision of the intended outcome. He went about his process with integrity, humanity, confidence, and a real focus on both the person and the company/team needs. As a result, I cannot recommend John highly enough. He is my “go-to” guy for executive coaching. You will do yourself, your company, and your team a favor by engaging John.

-Christian Fenger – EVP/COO

John did wonderful work with over 170 of our executive coaching clients over ten years and we were crushed when he left us!  He was one of our go –to coaches for senior executives, we knew we couldn’t go wrong with John.  His clients raved about his strategic approach, his creativity and his intense customer focus.”

“Mr. Arnold led us through the sessions in mature and understanding way. Adding appropriate level of flexibility, he was able to encourage us to talk about and face both strengths and areas for development. Having done the work during both sessions, we are more curious to build effective RD Team, constantly searching for best solutions. The two Team Sessions had great impact on our cooperation and established the base for communication within the team. We feel more prepared and ready for new challenges and for our first project that will be started in June this year. Once again, we would like to thank John for great work he had done for us and great time we had occasion to spend with him in Sweden and Poland.”
