Jevon K. Powell

Consultant Jevon PowellScontrino-Powell, Inc.

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

My company works with individuals, teams, and organizations to help them achieve positive and lasting change. In all my work I strive to:

  • Listen actively and summarize so we can hear your thoughts together.
  • Ask powerful questions that help you see things differently
  • Build your skillset so you won’t need me forever.
  • Push for results that are meaningful to you and your organization’s goals.
  • Be punctual, reliable, and easy to work with.

I have been consulting full-time since 1997, and have found that even though expertise is important, listening well and finding new perspectives provides the greatest value.
