"I have been working with Jonathan for over two years. Jonathan has been a paradigm shifter for my senior management team and myself - his acute listening skills, pertinent questions, and insightful advice has been invaluable. He has helped to increase my happiness along with company efficiencies and profitability. As a senior executive, there are few discrete people I can turn to for personal or work advice. Jonathan and I have worked on life skills, work-life-balance, long-term company strategy and implementation, personal and company goals and objectives. The juxtaposition of being able to work on personal and company goals & objectives is rare enough to find, let alone finding someone who's passion, education and experience is matched by his unparalleled results. I have seen positive changes in the self confidence and problem solving skills of my senior staff. We are indebted to Jonathan and thankful for being able to find him!"

--Benjamin, CEO, San Francisco Bay Area

 

"I reached out to Jonathan as I was new to the Bay Area and was looking for insight into local business culture and networking/career positioning strategies. Jonathan encouraged me to look at my interactions with others more holistically, on both a professional and personal level. I feel like I learned so much more about myself in my sessions with Jonathan than I ever expected. He is the consummate professional, kind, thought-provoking and so generous in spirit. I looked forward to my weekly sessions with him and hope that I have the opportunity to work once more with Jonathan."

--Renee, Chief Financial Officer, San Francisco Bay Area

 

"Jonathan had a way of pulling deep, thought provoking questions out of our conversations. I would leave the session with pages of notes. He would always leave me with an intention for the week and helped me work through some challenging situations at work. I look forward to working with him again soon!"

--Darryl, Executive Vice President, Oakland, CA

 

"As an experienced coach, I took my time to choose the coach I wanted to work with and found in Jonathan the quality of presence, attention, care and stimulation I was looking for. I felt that Jonathan connected with who I truly am, and his warmth and embodied awareness made me feel supported, encouraged, appreciated such that I was able to dare to dream a bigger and bolder dream for myself. As a business owner and developer, I appreciated greatly Jonathan's confidence and interest in understanding what is important for me in my life and in my work. Jonathan embodies mindfulness so genuinely that I found myself thinking and questioning with greater clarity and depth. In addition, it was a pleasure."

--Hedy, Executive Coach & Consultant, Paris, France

 

"At the beginning of my journey with Jonathan, I had four clear objectives. Not only did Jonathan provide me with thoughtful resources, direction and coaching in each area, he guided me to achieve so much more. My perception of what is required to achieve a successful, productive, satisfying career has shifted as a result of my time working with Jonathan. It is now not rooted in simply answering those initial questions. Rather, through Jonathan’s collaborative approach, my mindset and, as a result, my confidence and belief in myself has both grown and developed. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have learned from and worked with Jonathan and would not only recommend his services but also hope to work with him again in the future."

"I highly recommend Jonathan Reynolds for executive and business coaching. Jonathan's ease of being and skillful questions invite opening to deeper undercurrents at play. His kind, intelligent curiosity and refined attention models what leaders would do well to embody and I looked forward to each session in anticipation of learning more about myself -- even the parts I've actively avoided seeing in the past. Jonathan is a wise, compassionate and deep listener. He is efficient and grounded in approach. His coaching has positively impacted my ability to see clearly and make adjustments accordingly -- leading the change necessary for continued growth and opportunity within myself as well as my business."

Providing both work- and life-coaching through asking questions I've not encountered before, as well as consistently having examples of philosophies to enable my own growth & endure through trying situations, Jonathan has made my experience with Mindful Life, Mindful Work nothing short of gratifying and fulfilling."

--Catherine, Business Development Associate, Palo Alto, CA

 

"I had the distinct pleasure to work with Jonathan on a project last year, a planned support infrastructure for the legal world. Jonathan's thoughtful and even handed suggestions helped us make conscientious decisions. He brought the diverse group together and guided us forward, helping us to see the hidden things in our grand plans. I look forward to working with him again on future projects."

"Jonathan listens deeply - you feel his groundedness right away - and he responds thoughtfully. He is able to distill a lot of information into simple and succinct insights. He is patient and compassionate: he understands that growth can be challenging, uncomfortable, even disorienting. He does not recoil from anger, frustration, disappointment. I've learned a lot, and gained a lot from our work together. I highly recommend him."

--Steven, Film Composer, Berkeley, CA

His guidance came at the right time and helped solidify confidence in myself.”
