The coaching support from Dain Johnson at Rev 0 was transformational in helping me recognize the areas to improve my professional communication and planning. Dain's coaching approach is objective and insightful, and we worked with clear attainable goals during and between coaching sessions. I highly recommend Dain as a coach.Daudi Barnes, Chief Technology Officer, Agile Space Industries
New roles mean new stresses and new problems to solve. Dain was able to rapidly get to the core of these issues with a flexible approach tailored to me -- and provide strategies I was able to use to deal with these new items. I believe my time with Dain cut years off my acclimation to my new role, and I am contributing to my company’s success at a much higher and faster rate than I would have alone.Matt Trumbo, Director of Product Management, In-Situ, Inc.
Dain continually provided thought provoking exercises and conversations which helped me refine my leadership skills. He helped me become more effective in my communication to leadership as well as those on my team, and to develop my own team while keeping my personal values and the values of the company at the forefront.Tejal Patel, IT Manager, Sovos Brands
After the very first session I knew that leadership coaching with Dain would be career changing. Instead of trying to force me into some template, he has an amazing ability to quickly, and truly, understand me (my personality, my leadership style, and my goals) and to provide me with the tools and support to become the best leader I can be. Not only do I better understand how to lead my team while navigating the tricky corporate landscape, I feel like I better understand myself.Steve Martin, Director of Software Engineering and UX, In-Situ, Inc.
Dain has excellent insight into the changing landscape of leadership. These insights are thoroughly backed by what is clearly extensive reading of primary sources, sources that he has at the ready to help enlighten others. I learned a lot about myself and a lot about what it means to be a leader. I can't recommend more highly.Myles Bostwick, Software Engineering Manager, In-Situ, Inc.
The one-on-one coaching with Dain was very beneficial for guidance and direction. The structure of the coaching was comfortable and informative. The guiding questions helped me understand my present and gave me options for my future. Dain listened intently and gave feedback, both straightforward and honest. The conclusion left me with direction and options. The information he sent me afterward is still growing my takeaways from the meeting. I would recommend Dain's coaching to anyone who is looking for guidance in what could be the “next steps” for life, career, and job performance.Chris Lemmons, Educator
I found Dain's coaching and feedback to be particularly useful during a period of time when the company (and myself) were undergoing many transitions. I learned many methods of communication for dealing with difficult situations.Anne Branson, Project Manager, Agile Space Industries
