"I am so incredibly grateful for my work with Jon, because without it I would have little to no awareness. How can I lead someone through the financial planning process and help them gain awareness if i have no awareness in myself? The beauty of becoming aware of yourself, your practice and your clients is that positive actions are a natural byproduct. I have seen first-hand on several occasions where my awareness has enable the client to find their own sense of awareness. In may case, this simple change to focus on gaining clarity has revolutionized my practice. Since working with Jon, I have had the most profitable revenue-generating months of my entire career. "

"The Universe brought me to Jon through a series of friends and connections. After taking the MindScan, a thorough evaluation allowing him to map exactly where his clients need help, he told me he had never seen a MindScan like mine before. The results were jarring, they reflected my pessimistic mindset and scorn for life. He then explained to me the concept of value and explain to me what value was, I didn't even value! I then allowed myself the freedom to awaken to my own set of values. I got rid of that toxic job I hated, I was no longer numb to the love of friends and family that adored me, and my world went from a dark grey to illustrious color. I re-connected to that creative 11-year old self (that was in shadow) and realized the value of genuine connection, friendship, relationships, life and love. I began to allow myself to live, to laugh, to learn. To record music without shame, to express myself and let others in. I took control of the wheel of my destiny to be a performer, a creative, a rock for those who feel trapped inside to rest on."

"I wanted my life to change. I would make progress professionally but wasn't consistent. The MindScan blew my mind. It was the starting point to understanding who I am. I was avoiding my emotions and who I am. Coaching has given me the confidence to be myself again. I know how to deal with anger and uncertainty now and I can let go. Through coaching, my whole approach to my work has changed. I work less and make more money. I love feeling my emotions now."

“I was fortunate to get introduced to Coach Jon by my father who worked with Jon at Triad Systems Corp. Our first activity was the MindScan. This was an “eye opener” for me and provided the impetus to want more from myself & from Coach Jon. With the full support of my organization, which is a KEY, I sought coaching to help me to propel me to a more balanced and impactful work/personal life. I'm excited about my progress since I started partnering with Coach Jon in January 2022. I have a purpose focused plan that I hold myself accountable to weekly. I’m listening more to my heart to create more life satisfaction and I'm much more present with my emotions and with others. My relationships (personally and professionally) have improved and my quality of life too. A bonus has been an improved effectiveness of my work and of our team.”

"The questions, resources, time and energy that I needed for my healing have been so powerful that I wanted to share the impact that it has had on me. I have been constantly using the tools that have helped my self-awareness since we started doing our sessions. I have the ability to remind myself that there is an enemy at play, and the shadow version of myself has all the tools that I need to accomplish this journey that I am on. I have felt empowered since our conversations, and things have really changed for the better. I got a comment recently that I "radiate this sense of confidence that is easy to trust." Also, my confidence and transparency with the people in my life have changed our conversations for the better. Thank you does not do it justice for how appreciative I have been since you taught me how to look into myself and use these tools."

"I found Jon at a time in my life when a lot of decisions needed to be made, internal fears and blocks kept coming up, and my path forward didn't always feel so clear. Each session with Jon unlocked more and more of my true potential, how I'm meant to show up in the world, how I'm meant to love, and how I'm meant to serve others. He's given me concrete tools that have helped me access a vibration of love and compassion versus disempowerment and defeat. These tools have helped me clear energetic and mental blockages, receive powerful intuitive messages, and move confidently in a chosen direction. With Jon's coaching, I am freer, lighter, more in love, more radiant, more heart-filled, and more in-tuned with who I really am and what I was born to do."

"I invested in PAC in Jan. 2019 to get my team in alignment with the culture I wanted the entire company to be inspired to follow. The team consisted of all 6 of my direct reports and we eventually took the PAC process downstream to my Sales Manger's team of 7 later that year. The PAC process was very thorough, starting with the gap analysis for each team member. By the time PAC came to Toronto for the on-site immersion, I knew what the main challenges were. We were stuck in a "What's in it for me" mindset instead of "Trusting in each other to achieve our Vision as a Team mindset." The team came away from the on-site in Feb. 2019 committed to achieve success as a team (#1 team in the company), feel cohesive as a team, learn how to deal with frustrations better (instead of blaming others) and have more fun.
Our team bought in 100%. I felt the PAC team experiences were powerful, creating a team bonding that we needed to get everyone out of their own heads and into a group mentality of how can we help each other grow. The team jelled around creating our team vision and mission. You could feel the excitement and energy rise. We came out of the on-site focused on individual action plans and stayed committed to our Team Vision and Mission with consistent weekly team huddles every Monday. I credit PAC with helping our Team achieve #1 in Epicor in 2019 and the company did notice the change in our culture. I give PAC five stars!”

"I've received coaching from Jon for over three years. When I started, I knew I had a few limiting beliefs that kept me from realizing my potential as a financial advisor. With Jon's counsel, I became aware of why I was feeling stressed and not setting higher goals. I began to implement strategies to achieve a more balanced and holistic vision of success, both personally and professionally.
The results of coaching have been stellar. I'm taking more time for myself while realizing the best financial results of my career. I achieved NYL Chairman's Council for the first time in my career in 2021 and made chairman's council again in 2022 and in 2023. And best of all, my relationships and health have improved because I've learned how to change the way I think about myself."

"Jon has coached my team through significant hurdles. I’m especially impressed with his ability to soften resistance and open minds. He has a holistic approach to work and coaching that I find refreshing and realistic. The ProAdvisorCoach 1.5-day immersion on-site was transformative for our team, leading to a deeper level of trust and to improved personal communication which continue to positively impact our team members personally and professionally. The MindScan assessment, customized action plans, and weekly huddles have kept us focused on our strengths and what matters most, in alignment with our strategic plan and core values. I recommend Jon Zieve and the ProAdvisorCoach process to any team that wants to break through resistance to change, improve focus and team alignment."
- Jill McClure, Chief Executive Officer APRO (Assoc. of Progressive Rental Organizations)
"My life has definitely changed for the better with coaching. I've made progress on every intention I set out to and challenged myself in ways I hadn’t considered. For example, I have made the massive jump of working 4 days per week instead of 5 (and sometimes 6) and the results are better! A year and a half ago, that idea would have sounded impossible. The biggest impact of coaching is with my relationship with myself. I say no to what's not in my best interests and yes to what is. I'm not as hard on myself and I let go of work when I'm off work. This allows me to be more present with others, which is much appreciated by my loved ones, friends and team at work. And Coach Jon also helped my mental approach to golf. My golf handicap went from a 18 to an 11!

“Before I started working with Coach Jon, I felt like I was on the hamster wheel every day, running as hard and fast as I could, and never able to take a breath and catch up. Despite all the hard work, effort and long hours I was putting in, my production had plateaued and I found myself unable to grow my practice and revenue. I have now been working with Coach Jon now for a little over 3 years, and in that time we are approaching 2.7 times growth, I am off the hamster wheel, and feel more efficient and focused with my time and practice. Our team vision, mission and values help us identify, focus on and stay in alignment with what's most important, and I am learning to say no to the things that don't align with our mission. This frees up time to do what I love both personally and professionally. As a team we are getting dialed in, having more fun and doing a better job taking care of our clients, which is way more than I ever envisioned was possible!”

"What I liked about working with Jon was his deep insights into what it takes for women to work, compete, and succeed professionally. Jon not only was able to identify and help me understand the issues that I was dealing with personally, but he was able to help me understand how these issues were driving my professional life. I was able to find the source of my true power and strength and be effective beyond what I thought possible."

“When I first talked to Jon, I didn't have the enthusiasm for growing my practice that I desired. My work with Jon helped me realize I was not handling conflicts as they came up and he helped me understand why. With this awareness, I was able to start reacting differently. The results have been noticeable; I feel better, have more patience and focus. I now have the enthusiasm for growing my practice that I want and the clarity for taking action that I was missing!”
— Jane S., Financial Advisor, Equitable
“As a financial advisor striving and pushing for constant growth, I knew I needed to take time to evaluate my business and have a coach keep me honest. As life got more frenzied, I was struggling to find balance and purpose. Through my coaching sessions with Jon, he helped me realize a more fulfilling and harmonious life, faster and easier. This helped me to identify my own pitfalls and to use my strengths to be more efficient. The process helped me value time to focus on myself. Jon is able to act as a filter, directing and guiding ideas to create a more productive business. I really look forward to our calls, knowing that I am learning more about myself and growing into a better advisor as well as creating a brighter future for my business.”

"Working with Jon has allowed me to recognize when I'm over-reacting to stress and to trust my intuition for self-care. This has allowed me to feel more authentic and confident, which in turn has made me more productive at work and more content in my personal life."
