Val Jon Farris and the Leader of One programs provided critical support as a thought partner as I built leadership depth and breadth as the Leadership Development Manager in Tucson. I would describe frustrating leadership symptoms to him and he very quickly would drill to root cause. The leadership courses he designed to address the issues I was challenged with spurred self-realization, growth, and behavior changes on the job for a multitude of leaders. Val Jon was wonderfully challenging to leaders – and they flourished under his tutelage. The years I spent working with him were productive, allowed me to improve as an L&D leader and I/O psychologist, and made a long-term impact. Intuit
