John was instrumental in my career and the success of our company. John took the time to help mold and focus our value proposition and messaging that allowed us to interface with key players that invested in the company. John is a natural coach and mentor, not many people out there nicer than he is. His investment in others set's him apart. I don't know how I'm going to pay back John for all he has done, but I will enjoy my time with him trying.

I was drawn to John by the strength and power and his personality, intellect, integrity, wisdom and humor. I watched how when John spoke everyone at the table listened and these were powerful, respected and experienced CEOs, trade association executives, venture capitalists, attorneys and financial professionals. He is also a great listener and confidante. John has the amazing quality of being able to diagnose and address business, organizational and employee issues with great insight and wisdom.

John hired me to be CEO of Bacterin in August 2013 and we have had an outstanding working relationship since then. We have resolved several very difficult situations in order to turn this Company around and there is no one I would rather have at my side in a life or death situation. John has an unmatched depth of experience and network for early to mid stage business management. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with John.
Dan Goldberger, CEO
The truest test of a leader and the principles he or she promotes is...results delivered in real world situations. John's leadership model provides clarity of vision, unlocks the potential of individual and team, and delivers verifiable results. John's passion, creativity, values and experience capture the true power of a team and strikes an optimal balance of both "what" is to be accomplished and "how" it is accomplished...creating high performing and sustainable teams.

John has a great deal of experience in corporate governance activities that include board service, board consultations and expertise in day-to-day operations of the multiplicity of companies. His background in small startups and venture capital make for a perfect combination of expertise and experience. He is immensely personable and applies himself completely to his speaking and coaching roles. Finally he is inspiring, encouraging, and passionate about helping his clients. What I appreciate most about John is his ability to get to the core of a problem or project, keep everyone happy, and provide more than simply the routine results.

John Deedrick did a wonderful job of explaining and teaching about my individual MCore and Disc Profile. It gave me great insight into why I often think the way I do. As a team it was so healthy to be able to go over everyone's results together. We laughed, and we also got a deeper understanding of what makes each of us tick. Very profitable time spent as a staff! I would highly recommend this training for any and all businesses, teams, and professionals.
