Tom has studied organizations and the people they employ long enough to have a keen sense of what it takes for both to prosper. He writes and speaks about those leadership challenges and management perplexities that ultimately determine the success or failure of today’s customer sensitive workplace.
Tom brings a level of collaborative spirit to his consulting engagements that is rare among his contemporaries. He is particularly adept at unifying diverse personalities with competing priorities around a common purpose.
Clients comment that his observations are so accurate and his recommendations so helpful they wonder whether he has been quietly watching their workplace before they contacted him.
In his new book, Doers: The Vital Few Who Get Things Done, Tom shows employers how to create a workplace where Doers flourish. He also shows Doers how to seek out an organization where their eagerness to succeed is recognized and rewarded.
Calling upon three decades of experience Jones has created the Planning Wheel, which is a strategic model that provides leaders and followers with the continuity of direction and the clarity of purpose they both need in order to succeed.
Tom holds a Doctoral degree in Organization and Leadership from The University of San Francisco. He has lectured at six universities and currently teaches Principles of Management for the College of Business at California State University, Monterey Bay.
