Generating lasting changes in performance

Recognized as an expert in the areas of executive coaching and executive assessment, John Behr has worked with a number of Fortune 500 companies in the United States and leading companies in Europe, India, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia.

Although his coaching is founded on sound principles of leadership, his open-ended approach helps him take global leaders and other senior executives through a process of self-discovery that is more likely to result in lasting changes in performance that have a broad range of impact.

By developing a relationship of trust, John invites leaders to candidly examine their strengths and limitations, often uncovering foundational mindsets that may reduce their effectiveness or their ability to address the new types of challenges posed by organizations in transition. When appropriate, he also invites leaders to consider longer-term objectives.

His work is informed by:

  • 26 years of experience, including work with global leaders that has given him valuable insight into the differences between eastern, western, and regional leadership styles and decision-making.
  • Thousands of executive assessments, with a proven record for accuracy.
  • Comprehensive training that includes MS and PhD degrees in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from the Illinois Institute of Technology.

John is active with the American Psychological Association, the Illinois Psychological Association, and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology. He is certified in a multitude of professional assessment tools and has served on the board of examiners for the Lincoln Award for Business Excellence (Baldrige Award for Illinois). He teaches courses in business psychology and psychological tests and measurement at Northwestern University.
