Solutions To Solve Real problems
I have over 25 years’ executive leadership experience.
“Jesse is a phenomenal forward-thinking leader, coach, and mentor. He has challenged me to uplevel my goals, take baby steps towards accomplishing each one of them and visualize the manifestation, and release any fear. As a result, I have completed my Masters of Business Administration degree, started a new job, and launched my own organizing business. I will never forget him saying: “Can you see yourself making this amount each month from your business?” While I’m not quite at that amount, I know it’s within reach and will happen! He embodies optimism, servant leadership, and creative coaching methodologies. If you are ready to change your life then seek out his expertise and prepare for the growth and transformation"
Jesse has worked with Midland University's MBA program for several years, helping to train professionals in the application of Operational Excellence. These students have gone on to have amazing results implementing the concepts learned in the classroom. Jesse is a highly regarded educator, coach, and friend of the MBA program!
“Jesse is the ideal transformational leader. He leads continuous improvement initiatives by “seeking to understand”. He fosters an environment in which your team leaves every interaction looking to better understand your business and guides the team to begin forming strong opinions about what better can look like.”
Every year the Pottawattamie Conservation team plans for future programs, projects and events. This year we took on a different twist and decided we would incorporate some team building with our annual strategic planning session. Jesse DePriest was awesome, he not only helped us come closer together as a team but used that team development to guide our future direction and planning efforts. Jesse has a great personality that resonated with our team and his knowledge of team dynamics and organizational planning is outstanding.
“When I approached Jesse about helping my team perform more effective problem solving, he provided exemplary training and coaching. More importantly, though, he helped participants recognize the importance of understanding our organization, its people, and its goals. With his help, we were able to improve our problem solving methods, but we also began to instill a problem solving culture in the organization.”
Jesse has been a fantastic source of encouragement as we began our lean journey at Cardinal Construction. He was able to provide practical ways for us to implement lean tools specific to our business, as well as support me through the trials and tribulations that inevitably come with leading any new change. Jesse is full of insight and asked great questions that helped guide me along our path of continuous improvement.
Jesse has great depth of knowledge of continuous improvement and leadership. More importantly, he brings his servant leader heart to every interaction. His real-world experiences, ability to share those experiences in ways that help others learn, and his deep respect for people, make him one of our most requested facilitators.
“Jesse worked with our team as a subject matter expert for lean education and training. Jesse is dependable, has attention to detail, and holds a high standard to his work. He is also a strong communicator, and can articulate difficult topics and concepts.”
“I worked with Jesse to help finetune a Lean Maturity Model for my organization as I am working to help my company move to a lean culture & mindset. Jesse provided very valuable input/suggestions that helped me create a maturity model I could pitch to my leadership and am now starting to pilot at my organization. Jesse has provided valuable input in many other situations and I’ve attended many of his training sessions he’s held. These have all been invaluable and provided a lot of benefit to me and my team.”
Jesse came to our organization to present an introduction to LEAN to a group of people that had very little understanding of what it meant. Not only was the workshop very informative, but Jesse was also very engaging and made the process enjoyable. The initial session prompted a lot of interest and was a great kick starter to the momentum of our LEAN journey. I would highly recommend working with Jesse!
