There are so many opportunities at your fingers tips that are not obvious to us. I help my clients discover these opportunities and take action.
You have my deepest respect when you challenge yourself to grow personally and professionally. All growth is hard work that takes time and courage. However personal and professional growth are always worth the effort.
My coaching approach is to support my client to achieve a clear understanding of their current reality (personal awareness) and commit to their desired state (goals, dreams) based on what matters to the client. We will use several exercises that are very effective in helping with self
awareness and goal setting. From this point we create a structure to build a bridge from where they are to where they want to be. Our minds are target dependent so we want to keep your goals and dreams front of mind. And for those that struggle to specify a goal or clarify a dream we discuss the value of picking a target even if you are not sure. The wrong target is better than no target and adjusting targets is certainly understandable and wise when appropriate.
I am passionate about sharing what I have learned from my 40 years of business experience, life experiences and professional training. My life experiences have given me a dynamic foundation: life long entrepreneur, professional golfer, pilot, built a business from scratch and operated it for 17years before selling the business, 30 years of marriage with 3 kids and 6 grandkids. The last 15 years I have worked with business owners and their staffs in group and one on one settings. There are very few scenarios I have not seen. Along the way I have been certified in several formal coaching disciplines: professional 360 assessments, personality profiles and personal growth coaching certifications. I believe their is always a path forward.

I was stuck in a rut with my career and was not sure where to go for help. I felt defeated in my current position, held back, and even a little suppressed. That's when a friend of mine recommended that I meet with John Perles. After a few months of talking with John I had a renewed sense of not only where my career was at, but where I could take it. He was able to help me identify my strengths, weaknesses, and personality traits and was constantly there to encourage and push me to become a better version of myself. You don't need new tools; you need to know how to use YOUR tools and that's exactly what I learned from John. Since my time working with John, I have changed jobs and gotten a renewed passion for my career. I consider John a true friend and will forever be thankful to have gotten to work with him.Lantz
John Perles has worked with me for many years with my career and life. Recently, I was in the midst of a career change. My self-confidence and outlook on my life was at an all-time low. I was in the state of panic looking for a new career. John coached me through this extremely difficult time. He challenged me, helped me to realize my potential and see my strengths. He encouraged me and demanded that I did not settle. He supported me during the many ups and downs, obstacles and roadblocks and helped me realize it was up to me to find that perfect job. He gave me goals that I did not always hit, yet he continued to push me and held me accountable to continue to reach those goals. He had me make a list of all my must haves of for my new job and a list of things that were a deal breaker. Not an easy task to complete and stick to as time marched on. He challenged me to look outside my comfort zone. End result, after only 8 months I was offered a job that I am excited about and that will challenge me. A wonderful work environment with great benefits. More importantly, my view of myself is so much better. I did not compromise on what I was looking for. All of my boxes were checked and I know I am a valuable member of my new team. John continues to check in and continues to challenge me and make me accountable. I'm glad he is on my team.Julia Moore, Cave Creek, AZ
My name is Jonathan. I work in Illinois as a branch manager in the service and repair industry. I have a military background, and after leaving the military in 2013, I have been in the service industry. I began my civilian career as a service writer, after doing that, I moved to being a parts counter sales person and then to warranty administrator. That path led me to the branch manager position I currently hold. John is extremely thorough and very organized with every process he uses. He does not force his ways on you at all, he merely holds the individuals accountable. He questions and challenges leaders and other team members, while doing this still manages to create an environment that all parties involved can learn from. He does all this with out having to know anything about the industry, he understands people, business, structure and leadership. He is a great coach who will push anyone outside of their comfort zone so that individual, team or company can grow.Jonathan
Before I met John, I was working in a job with no discernible direction of where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do. He challenged me to prioritize my life and business and now I get to pursue my purpose on a daily basis. With his help, I have come to understand myself better and I have been able to address and overcome the obstacles that were dragging me down.Michael Brummer, Real Estate Developer & Business Owner, Effingham IL
I began working with John when I was a young athlete and student trying to put together long-term and short-term goals. John was able to uncover and help me explore foundations of my personality, strengths, and weaknesses, through a process of questioning and challenging me to push myself out of my comfort zone. Through his coaching, I was able to get on my life path and move forward deliberately and efficiently. The seeds and nuggets of wisdom he planted on self-awareness and a proactive thought process, impact me daily in my role as a Nurse Practitioner and in my daily life outside of work.Emily Schultz
When I came to work at my current company, I was in a bit of professional turmoil. I was unhappy with the ethics practiced at my previous job. I looked for a company with a solid reputation. I found the right one, and I took any job they were willing to give me. At the same time, this company was going through transition. They had enlisted the services of Coach John. Coach and I spoke during one of the staff meetings, and he noticed my enthusiasm for developing a marketing plan for the future of this company. With a fair amount of hesitation, I was given the opportunity to become the Marketing Manager. I began meeting with Coach weekly to help develop me professionally for the job I was in. Coach John pushes me daily to grow both professionally and personally. He has knack for developing an approach that is custom to the individuals who is mentoring. He pushes to get your personal and professional goals to directly align with your companys mission, vison, and core values. He is able to spot talent, and grow them to be better assets. Working with Coach John over the past year has been an extreme privilege, and the most valuable hands-on education I have received. I highly recommend Coach John for anyone looking to promote a positive culture change for their business.Brian
