Bell Leadership Institute Introduces Leadership Trainer And Coach Jon S. Player

Chapel Hill, NC – May 17, 2017Bell Leadership Institute, a recognized leader in leadership training and executive development, is pleased to introduce Jon S. Player, J.D., M.S.P.H. as the newest leadership trainer and coach on its expanding team. Jon is a natural presenter who sharpened his skills before judges and juries and brings his varied experiences to delivering Dr. Gerald D. Bell’s mission to create world-class leaders.

Prior to joining Bell Leadership Institute, Jon practiced law as a civil litigator in North Carolina for nine years. Clients sought his counsel on the most complex cases as well as for his measured approach to dispute resolution. His work as a trial attorney provides him a unique perspective for training leaders, especially in companies who are undergoing dramatic change. Jon takes an investigative approach to identify and analyze issues that hinder growth, breaking down complex situations into essential, manageable elements while looking for specific and targeted solutions.

Before practicing law, Jon managed large-scale University research studies investigating the role of genetics in cancer development. He also lived in Guatemala volunteering for Mercy Ships, a medical organization that provides medical, optical and dental treatments for indigenous populations.

Jon received his BS (Biology) and master’s degree (Environmental Health) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where his research was published in peer review journals: Breast Cancer Research, Carcinogenesis, and Cancer Causes and Control. He received his law degree from the University of Richmond in Virginia. While there, he assumed the role of Editor in Chief of the Richmond Journal of Law and Technology, as well as helped the University to start the Institute for Actual Innocence, which focuses on the exoneration of wrongly convicted prisoners in Virginia.

“I’ve seen firsthand how leadership can make a profound difference in how organizations react to problems and opportunities. Dr. Bell’s lifelong work on leadership has helped countless people become more effective, build organizations, and lives. It’s an honor that Dr. Bell asked me to join Bell Leadership and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him to carry those lessons forward.”

Jon is ready to hit the ground running with leading onsite training sessions including Bell’s cornerstone AchieversTM program. For booking availability and fees, please contact Amy Hagen with Bell Leadership at (919) 967-7904.
