Jevon K. Powell – Scontrino-Powell, Inc.


I help senior leaders find new ways to engage employees and teams to achieve high performance. I believe the science of psychology makes for a smarter workplace and that evidence-based managers are more effective. My commitment to you is to:

  1. Share evidence-based tools, skills, and knowledge that work.
  2. Listen carefully to understand your challenges and what you are trying to accomplish.
  3. Ask questions that help you see things from new perspectives.
  4. Push for results that are visible to you and others.
  5. Be antiracist, respectful, and inclusive in all my work and to help you do the same.

I have been consulting full-time since 1997 and look forward to the opportunity to help you, your team, and your organization reach new levels of performance.
