A management training program designed for your unique culture.

This the first time in 20 years that I’ve had 100% confidence in an external partner.
— Jim Stefanchin, Director of Learning & Talent, Panasonic North America

For managers to engage in training, it has to help them answer the real questions.


How do I balance my work with coaching others?


What to do with talented people who aren't good teammates?


How do I give real-time feedback without micromanaging?


How do I get people to take the right risks when I'm not around?


How do I balance compassion with driving results?

Jonathan is the owner of Refound and the author of Good Authority: How to Become the Leader Your Team is Waiting For. After twenty years of not being able to decide whether he was a business executive or a personal growth teacher, Jonathan stopped trying to figure it out. He's the former CEO and Chief Brand Officer of EMyth, where he led the transformation of a global coaching brand and has worked in tech, clean tech, and the nonprofit world since graduating law school in 1998. He’s madly in love with his wife, tries not to spoil his daughters, and will never give up on the New York Knicks. He lives in Ashland, Oregon, a lovely town that’s too far away from a warm ocean.
