James “ECoach” Rodriguez defines Leadership as the difference between a being a  maker and the deal breaker.

It’s how we grow organizations. It’s how we impact lives.

But, as you also know, leadership cannot be an idea we simply talk about; leadership is the action we must live out.

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I  offer you:

  • Workshops,
  • Seminars,
  • Keynote speaking,

  • Aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods.
Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.  My goal-oriented outlook on life and my passion for helping others reach their goals led me to join the John Maxwell Team.
