"I have had the pleasure of getting to know and work with Jake for the past several months. Jake is amazing!  He is a treasure in your tool box and I have found him to be a great help in the journey. Jake’s ability to zero in on the real issues, to dissect and diffuse is a skill and talent I’ve not encountered in my fifty years in business.  He is intuitive, calming and action oriented.  He calls people to accountability without being demanding or tough. I highly recommend Jake for your Management team."
