About T.J. Jones


TJ is a leadership crusader, author, speaker, team-builder, and coach. He has spent twenty-five years first as a teacher and coach, then twenty years as a corporate sales executive and head of training and development. He has developed his leadership and self-development expertise in the trenches. He hasn’t just studied positive influence and performance improvement but he’s lived it by hiring, training, and coaching thousands of people to greater success and fulfillment. He brings an everyman’s real world experience and positive spirit to his work.

TJ believes that caring is the heart of leadership. Caring is the answer to what we need–a new path with heart leading the way for the head. Therefore, he crusades for more caring and positive influence in individuals, teams and organizations, because, all great leaders and world-shaking movements have been inspired by deep caring and intention. And so it should be for each of us in life and at work.

TJ is a caring warrior, which means he dares to care and chooses to stand up and do something about it. His mission is to awaken, influence, and inspire a world with more caring warriors with a fighting spirit to make things better. True leaders hold themselves accountable for caring and they expect it from others. Caring is the answer.

He speaks, teaches, and coaches in a fun and highly interactive way with the intention of stirring both feeling and positive change. TJ released his book The Caring Warrior: Awaken Your Power To Lead, Influence, and Inspire in November of 2016.

TJ is a husband and father of four children. When he’s not crusading for more caring, he coaches his sons in baseball and lives an active life with his family.

Join TJ and take up the sword for better results and fulfillment in your life and in your work.

“TJ is an incredible leader and coach. He has a natural intuition about people and the ‘street smarts’ needed in business. He has the ability to inspire in the most difficult business cultures.”
–SM, Senior Sales Leader, Healthcare
