Hi, I am JD Meier.
Welcome to my Coaching page.
I was Microsoft’s innovation coach, and if you’re trying to change the world, I want to help you succeed.
I can help you become a better leader through high performance and modern leadership skills including digital transformation, innovation, and sustainability:
- We will work together to identify your goals and develop an actionable plan to accelerate your progress and achieve breakthrough transformations and results.
- I’ll bring to the table over two decades of experience at Microsoft helping business and individuals realize their potential.
- I have a deep toolbox, including proven practices, methodologies, and world class frameworks that I’ve used to help individuals, teams, and leaders change the world.
High Performance & Innovation Coach
I’ve been a High Performance & Innovation coach at Microsoft where I’ve coached thousands of Microsoft employees in high performance and productivity.
I’ve been the “Head Coach” for Microsoft’s Satya Nadella’s innovation team, a CEO Whisperer to amazing business leaders in various industries, and I’ve been asked to help “transform a nation” through innovation.
I’ve been in the business of personal transformation and business transformation and have helped many people learn peak performance and how to realize their potential.
I am often asked to coach teams based on my best-selling book, Getting Results the Agile Way. And in recent years, I’ve been asked to coach teams in mindfulness and sustainable productivity.
High-Performance Coaching Services
High performance is a way to achieve better, faster, easier results, with more flow, while spending time in your strengths, living your values, and operating at a higher level.
This is how you become your greatest version of yourself.
I’ve coached many individuals, teams and leaders to achieve better results in work and life.
Innovation Coaching Services
Innovation is a skill. It’s one of the most important skills that modern organizations need to survive and thrive as our world changes faster than ever before.
When I think about innovation, I think about it at the individual, team, and organization level.
I’ve worked in automotive, banking, cities, education, health, manufacturing, media, retail, telco, sports, and more.
Strategy Sessions for CEOs, Entrepreneurs, and Leaders…
One of my favorite things to do is to change the world, and I believe that to change the world, one of my best ways to do so is to influence the CEOs that are creating the future.
If you need to change your game, change the world, or create the future, well, we can do that.
1-on-1 Strategy Session
An hour of intense insights and actions to change your game in business or in life. They aren’t for everybody (but my websites and books are).
Here are some examples of the nature of what we can explore….
- CEO Whisperer – I’ve given leaders million, multi-million-, and billion-dollar ideas.
- Strategy Session – You need to navigate the future and figure out a way forward. I have more than 100 frameworks in my toolbox.
- Breakthrough Session – You’re stuck.
- Transformation Session – You or your business needs to transform. You or your business needs to become something more. This is a Phoenix-Style transformation.
- Your Future Business – You’d be amazed at how quickly with the right mindset, skillset, and toolset, you can be your Future Business now.
I can help you figure out your future for you or your business. My super skill is extreme value creation. If you need to find your Next, that’s what I do.
I’m open to special projects. I’ve been asked to do some very special things. I was even invited to be the innovation coach for a TV show targeting 400 million viewers.
Make me an offer I can’t refuse. I’ve had amazing mentors, and I’ve mentored many people at all levels through their greatest growth.
There is something very special about how when the student is ready, the master appears.
