In January 2003, he took a course in Executive Coaching taught by a Boeing executive coach. Extensive practice in coaching methods and study of consulting theory followed. He attended professional coaching conferences. John began offering coaching services to entrepreneurs struggling to improve their organization and grow their ventures.
Kate (Kathleen) Packard suggested the name Be Cause as in to “be cause” in a matter. “Being cause” or “to be cause” is to create, to drive the action and to be responsible for results. John and Kate have done extensive personal and professional development programs since the mid-1980s. Other graduate courses, taught by working organizational psychology professionals in facilitation were taken. In the summer of 2005, John completed his Master of Science degree in management with his thesis on a social change project using community outreach to promote distance education. John was convinced that high-touch coaching, facilitation and consulting skills could be used to assist business owners located in rural areas via the then growing technology of online screen sharing, audio and video communications.
John believes in ongoing professional training. He is a professional member of the Institute of Management Consultants. He is a past board member and membership chairman of the Oregon IMC chapter. John has achieved Toastmasters International’s highest award “Distinguished Toastmaster.” He is currently Public Relations Officer for Oregon & SW Washington and vice president education of the Early Words Toastmaster club in Longview.
