About the Author

Jon F. White Jon White began his career as an educator; not surprisingly, his subject was Communications. He moved on to build a small chain of travel agencies, later sold for ten times the initial investment. Following that, Jon spent 20 years as a successful top-level business leader in the medical device industry. Mr. White now infuses his work as an Executive Coach, Leadership Consultant, and valued Speaker with the practical knowledge he brought from each of his past experiences. Jon has worked with senior leaders throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia and has consulted for a wide range of companies, including QualComm, Jenny Craig, Disney, Black and Decker, Callaway Golf, Chrysler, Kinder Morgan, Ingram Micro, Fieldstone Communities, Quest Diagnostics, and State Street Financial, to name just a few. With a passionate interest in the behaviors necessary to provide outstanding leadership, Jon's professional journey has led him to focus on Listening because he believes it to be the skill that is fundamental to almost all other leadership attributes.
