A Commitment to Lifelong Learning

Jesus is nearing completion of his Advanced Certified Personal and Executive Coach (ACPEC) certification from the College of Executive Coaching. This requires 128 hours of curriculum and post-graduate level professional coach training from an ICF-Accredited program. The certification includes intensive coursework in conflict management, team development, change management, and diversity and inclusion. Very few professional coaches receive this level of accreditation. Jesus is committed to ongoing professional growth and lifelong learning.

“What is our true character and calling? This is the time to show who we really are with our people, our businesses, our families and our communities. How much are we willing to give? How often are we acting on the situation vs. reacting?”

Crafting a legacy together with giving back are both strong drivers in his life, Jesus does pro-bono work in Monterrey for Hombre Renovado, a rehabilitation center for minors.

A restless world traveler, Jesus has visited more than 62 countries, having worked in more than 30. He is an expert in group dynamics and holds a firm conviction that groups can change the world. When he isn’t traveling the world helping others accomplish their goals, Jesus enjoys watching movies, reading and trekking.
