Whitehead is an experienced leader, facilitator and certified coach with over 40 years of senior leadership and management experience. John K. Whitehead & Associates was formed in 2014 to provide coaching to both individuals and organizations that are interested in exploring how to improve the way they communicate and understand others.

He’s seen firsthand how it can positively impact individuals and organizations, significantly improving employee turnover and productivity.
“It’s about giving people a greater understanding of themselves,” says Whitehead. “It all starts with self-awareness. Who are you as an individual? What are your values? It starts with the ‘why’ and moves forward from there.”
Whitehead says effective leadership depends on a combination of strong relationships and the ability to convey an inspired, shared vision.
“You have to know what your own vision is first,” says Whitehead. “You have to know your own values and be able to translate that to inspire others, bring other people along. The other piece is encouraging others, giving them the opportunity to try things themselves, letting people do their thing, not always standing over their shoulder.”
