John joined STS in 2005 and since that time he has helped leaders drive toward improved business results. He consults on a wide variety of topics, including business unit alignment, talent management, and organization design. With an eye toward both individual executive development and team effectiveness, he helped design STS’s approach to team coaching.
As part of his consulting practice, he is frequently asked to facilitate leadership meetings when topics are more strategic rather than focused solely on talent management or organization design.
John’s individual clients include executives and professionals (physicians, attorneys, and consultants) in for-profit, not-for-profit, and academic settings. He serves Aon, BCU, Consumers Credit Union, Endicott College, First Midwest Bank, The Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, Guidehouse, Misericordia, Northwestern University, and Summit Credit Union.
Before joining STS, John was a partner at Hewitt Associates. He was an adjunct faculty member of the Northwestern University School of Education and Social Policy, Center for Learning and Organizational Change for 14 years. He was a guest lecturer at the University of Illinois College of Law. He was a book review editor for “People and Strategy,” the journal of the Human Resources Planning Society.
John holds a B.A. in Journalism from Creighton University and an M.S.J. from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
