If  you are willing to put in the work, I am ready to work with you!

Everyone who works in an organization contributes positively or negatively to its culture. No one is a bystander.

Work cultures can be toxic, tolerable, or win-win. You have an opportunity to choose how you want to influence the work environment. Choose to be a part of the solution. Think win-win and put in the work!

“Edward, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that the Executive Director has been very pleased and upbeat about the work you two are doing together. She, and we, are sure you were the right person at the right time. You are doing a great service to the organization and to the clients we serve.”

About
Edward Jones

The Edward Jones is a certified life coach who specializes in healing work relationships (office politics). The term office politics triggers unpleasant memories or highlights a current situation. A lot of people can tell stories about a power-hungry boss, colleague, or subordinate who made their life miserable. These are the individuals  Edward initially thought of when starting his coaching practice. He empathized and wanted to help them navigate polluted office political waters. Then realized that he could make it so much easier for individuals to navigate by working with leaders (bosses) who could purify those waters by changing workplace culture.

He believes that office politics is necessary, but not necessarily evil.  Office politics is like money and time. It has value but is neither good nor bad. What matters is how it is used. Humans consciously choose to use it for good or evil. In some cases, they unwittingly leave it to fate.

Fate can be cruel. So rather than letting fate be the master of your organization, take control, by using office politics in a manner that best serves the organization and the people who work there.  Unchecked and unbridled office politics can be and most often is destructive.

Most people would like to be in a place where trust, integrity, comradery, and empathy abound. Those places exist. Edward Jones created it and as a certified life coach is looking to help others do the same.

 Edward helps leaders turn mediocre or downright intolerable situations into places where productive work and positive relationships flourish.

He helps bosses become servant leaders who turn toxic workspaces into win-win workplaces. Servant leaders not only have employees’ hands, but they also have their hearts. When leaders have employees’ hearts they will do more than is expected.
