I worked closely with Jon late 2019 at a FTSE100 energy company. What impressed me is Jon's indepth knowledge of what I refer to as 'the human being', which is fundamentally what coaching needs. I enjoyed many deep and broad conversations with Jon. He's a man I certainly want to keep in touch with and would enjoy working with him again. An absolute pleasure to meet. D.T
I have worked with Jon for several months now and he has helped me in a number of different ways. Initially we talked about and he helped me to focus on developing a core set of skills that were required as I embarked on a new career journey. As the relationship developed Jon also helped me to develop my confidence to explore furthering my career in performance and lifestyle coaching. This primary focussed on establishing some clear and meaningful personal goals which have enabled to focus on what is important both in the short and longer term. I have made significant progress in a short period of time and look forward to realising my personal and career goals in the future.
I was fortunate enough to have Jon as a coach during a transitionary phase of my career. Jon brought about a focus on my own goals and helped to gain and understanding what was really important to me. Jon was a great at triggering thoughtful reflection on critical issues, and supporting the journey to action.
I am new to agile and I’m taking on the role of scrum master. I have some experience of being coached - Jon’s approach to agile and coaching feels to me like he’s not reading from an agile or coaching handbook. He provides subtle and powerful challenges to my thinking. He also provides practical solutions to problems where feasible, and he has quickly understood the environment I work in. I very much appreciate his supportive but not inappropriately sympathetic approach to more emotional outbursts. Scrum Master, UK University, January 2018
Discovering Jon Sleeper's coaching sessions has made all the difference in my role as an agile coach and it's easy to see why: Jon embodies all the qualities of a great coach. In the months I've been attending his sessions, I have discovered a deeper love for my profession and my toolkit has widened. His influence on me has been transformational. Leye Adenle, Agile Coach
