"One of the Best Investments You Have Ever Made!"

During my six-month coaching experience with Jamaal, I was consistently pushed out of my comfort zone, in a kind and empathetic way. I noticed that I was able to increase the credibility with myself because of the questions I was being asked. Specifically, Jamaal helped me land on a start date for my mastermind group which has allowed me to impact many participants over the years. I’m also now partnering with chambers, associations and networking groups, because I was able to take action with my first mastermind group years ago with Jamaal’s support.

Anyone working with Jamaal is in for treat! This will be one of the best investments you have ever made!

"Positively Impacted My Personal and Professional Pursuits."

As a result of working with Dr. Jamaal Johnston, I personally have taken control of my daily tasks and schedule instead of letting them take control of me, which has all in turn positively impacted my personal and professional pursuits. If you are struggling personally and/or professionally, don’t worry, Dr. Johnston and his team at LGRC will help you figure it all out.

"Unlocked a New Level of Leadership."

Through Dr. Johnston’s leadership workshops, I unlocked a new level of leadership.  These workshops equipped me with essential skills, fostered valuable networking opportunities, and ultimately fueled my success in both academics and my professional journey.  Highly recommended for anyone looking to elevate their leadership game!

"Seemingly Insurmountable Tasks Became Achievable."

The coaching I received with Dr. Johnston was second to none. During the 12 months I was in the coaching program, I obtained valuable guidance that aided me considerably in my personal and professional growth. One of the most impactful takeaways from my sessions was the significance of planning and being growth oriented. This is meaningful because with this frame of reference, seemingly insurmountable tasks become achievable. As Dr. Johnston always says, “Make sure your foundation is strong, that’s what everything else is built on.”  Dr. Johnston equips you with the tools you need to build a solid foundation for your success.
