You can read more about Dr. Jones’ background here.[box]This is what Jonathan Lieber said about being coached by Dr. Lynn K. Jones: “When my job was eliminated in mid-2008, I was not overly concerned initially. I had been through similar circumstances before, and I expected to find a new job before too long. When my period of unemployment extended well over a year, however, with every promising lead falling through, the stress and boredom began to take a heavy toll. Fortunately, I heard Dr. Lynn Jones speak at a job support group and agreed to be coached by Lynn. Dr. Jones’ coaching is based in science, not new-ageism or mysticism. It’s practical, easy to do, and frankly, it’s fun. It also works. I credit Lynn’s insight and guidance with helping me get back on the right path and allow me to be my best self through the job search process. I have no doubt her coaching greatly contributed to my ultimately landing a wonderful job and feeling like myself again. For those of you who are in need of a restoration of your spirit – recovering your mojo, as Lynn might say – I cannot recommend Dr. Jones’ coaching strongly enough. It might be the best tool you can acquire in your job-search toolkit.” ~ Jonathan Lieber[/box]
