What people are saying about Jay Powers
Nolen Moore, Human Resources Manager, Baker Hughes, a GE company
I worked with Jay at Eaton in Shawnee, OK--one of the most demanding, yet rewarding, Eaton plants an HR Professional can work. Having worked HR off and on for over 25 years I can honestly say I have never seen a better Employee Relations expert or Managerial Coach than Jay Powers. He has the uncanny knack of getting at the heart of an issue quickly while nearly simultaneously rendering perfect on-the-spot coaching that not only solves the issue, but motivates everyone around him. And all this with an unconditional positive regard toward all that is uplifting and simply amazing to witness! Hard working, relishes 360-degree criticism, intelligent, a great teammate, and politically acute … Jay Powers can do it all.

One of the things I admire the most about Jay is his way with people. In our profession you have to be straightforward with all stakeholders, but at the same time you want to enhance relationships. This can be difficult when delivering unwelcomed news (i.e. correcting performance issues, managing up, etc). Handling these types of conversations in a manner that improves relationships is just one of the many talents that he has perfected into an art.

Over the past few months, Jay has coached me in having several crucial conversations with people both in personal and professional life. His tips and techniques have helped me gage situations and people and have conversations that have yielded positive results. Above all, Jay is a wonderful human being who I am comfortable confiding in without fear of being judged. Thank you for being there for me whenever I needed you…
