It’s simple, I provide my team a strong vision, their resources and tools while allowing them to be innovative and accountable. In return, they are high performers unsatisfied with the status quo taking ownership in driving results. Together we learn, celebrate, fail and grow!
My blood is 91% creativity and 9%, well… other blood stuff. My mind is a constant creator of improvement whether it be a product, a process or conceptual idea. This has been instrumental in finding lean solutions through organizational development and refining processes. A curse for me as I can’t shut it off, but companies I have worked with have improved bottom lines, increasing profit margins, expanding product offerings and eliminating inefficiencies.
Most known for finally creating a book dudes will read about parenthood, I am the co-author of the book “From Dude to Dad.” Delving into two of my life’s passions, I wrote the book “InCorporate Poetry” which is a nice blend of training concepts through poetry. One of my favorite books I’ve written is my own poetry capturing some of my life’s experiences in “Skyler Wolf Jones The Man Behind the Pen.”
There is no venue too big or too small. I love sharing and presenting on a variety of topics such as Leadership, Parenting and Learning and Development. My style is energetic and has been proven to be inspiring. People must be engaged and they will not be engaged without energy, knowledge, humor and awareness. I have been fortunate to impact thousands of individuals through speaking engagements.
First and foremost I am a family man who lives by the slogan “Make Today Awesome”. I have been blessed with 3 amazing boys and fortunate enough to marry my best friend. My goal in life is to have as many experiences as possible, spending less time accumulating stuff and more time engaged in what life has to offer. My family and I love to travel and when we aren’t outdoors in the mountains you can bet we are at a nice sandy beach running around in the sand and splashing in the ocean.SEE MORE
I have spent over a decade studying and getting hands-on experience in the areas of learning and development, business consulting, managing and organizing projects and the creative processes of building engaging content. My track record has demonstrated and proven I know how to generate results in these areas and I have a ranking of 99+ endorsements in my top 5 skills on LinkedIn.
Creating fresh content is where I am a powerhouse. My creativity is endless and I have a knack for taking complex processes and products and simplifying them into perfect consumable content pieces. Someone once told me I could find the angle in a perfect circle that would connect with an audience and drive them to take action. Whether I am leading a team or doing a solo mission, the content I create be it video, web, print or more is awesome and you will love it.View More
Because my background isn’t comprised of a formal education I am extremely passionate about taking advantage of and creating opportunities for solid learning experiences that fosters the development of individuals, teams and companies. There is no graduation to the evolution of knowledge, only checkpoints. This makes it critical to constantly be creating learning programs that will advance the current workforce’s capabilities to perform confidently and quickly while companies pivot to survive, thrive and lead in their markets.View More
Too much time is wasted on evaluating project management and program management tools. The tools are useful sure, but if they are too complex, take too much time to update, or simply aren’t convenient they won’t give you the data you are looking for or help drive projects to completion on time and on budget. My goal is to always alleviate those who are fulfilling the work by asking them for the smallest amount of time as possible in providing predictable and precise updates and let them focus on what they do best while I manage the project scope – hence the project manager or program manager. It’s not the tool driving projects forward, it is the details within the workflow.View More

“Skyler’s leadership is second to none. He gives his teams direction and complete autonomy to get things moving forward into completion. He takes time to discuss the reasons behind decisions so work isn’t do-as-I-say, but rather learn-and-do. He attracts great talent into his organization and allows growth and opportunity through delegation and ownership. He consistently challenges the status quo and looks for opportunities to improve his team and organization. Skyler has been and is a great leader and would recommend him if you are wanting a dynamite team in your organization.”
“Skyler completely overhauled our training department exactly how we imagined! Couldn't be happier with the timeline, scope, and delivery.”
“Skyler is a fun, detail-oriented trainer and training builder who is very good at what he does. He devotes time to making sure he knows everyone he is working with personally and works hard to make everyone feel comfortable and happy. His focus is creating training that empowers learners so they can perform their job to the best of their abilities. He is a positive influence in the workplace. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Skyler for any job, especially those where he will be interacting directly with a large number of employees.”
"Skyler has the unique and intuitive ability to quickly recognize organizational and training needs. While working remotely, he developed curriculum that built up both our frontline and management's needed core competencies. He is a joy to work with and an individual you would still enjoy spending time with at the end of the day!"
“Skyler is a highly-motivated and outstanding business development professional. His negotiation and strategic selling skills are impressive and his team-player mentality assures a "win win" for all. He keeps the company's best interests at the forefront while simultaneously championing what is right for the customer. He has the breadth to see a strategic opportunity and still execute a tactical workplan. Furthermore, Skyler is terrific with challenging assignments, tight deadlines and works well under adverse conditions. But most importantly he's pleasant to be around and takes great pride in making a difference in an organization or endeavor. I highly recommend Skyler for any company or assignment that can best leverage his skills.”
"Being able to produce content for other companies can be extremely difficult. Skyler makes it look effortless. He has a way with words and can share a vision that inspires the group to form around and work toward being successful together."
