Dr. Jones is best known for his “fresh eyes” approach to solving performance and productivity problems. After four decades as a consultant to private companies, public agencies, educational institutions, and healthcare providers, Tom has developed a clear understanding of how things get done and by whom.
Jones writes and speaks about those management perplexities and leadership dilemmas that ultimately determine the success or failure of a modern organization. He has studied organizations and the people they employ long enough to have a keen sense of what works and what doesn’t.
Observing who does the work and who takes the credit has left him with an acute awareness that success can be traced to a cadre of achievers doing the right thing the right way for the right reason — the vital few!
His most recent book, Doers: The Vital Few Who Get Things Done, addresses the challenges facing high performers in today’s stressful and demanding workplace.
Tom holds a doctorate in Organization and Leadership from The University of San Francisco. He has taught at seven universities including the College of Business at California State University, Monterey Bay where he recently provided lectures on the Principles of Management and Organizational Behavior.
