Dr. Jones is a learning facilitator who has consulted with organizations and the people they employ long enough to have a keen sense of what it takes for both to prosper. He is particularly adept at unifying diverse personalities with competing priorities around a common purpose. Tom writes and speaks about those leadership dilemmas and management perplexities that undermine the success of a modern enterprise.
Tom brings a level of collaborative spirit to his client engagements that is rare among his contemporaries. Clients comment that his assessments 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 an environment where Doers flourish. He also shows Doers how to seek out a workplace where their eagerness to succeed is recognized and rewarded.
Calling upon three decades of hands on experience Dr. Jones has created the Planning Wheel, which is a strategic guidance tool that provides Doers and the organizations that employ them with the continuity of purpose and the clarity of direction they both need in order to succeed.
Tom holds a doctorate in Organization and Leadership from The University of San Francisco. He has lectured at six universities and currently teaches Organizational Behavior for the College of Business at California State University, Monterey Bay.
