John Little

I'm an ICF-certified coach with strong professional experience in process improvement, software development, ministry, and education. 

Investing In People

For 30+ years I've worked to help others thrive: teaching in Guatemala, leading software development teams at global financial organizations, mentoring volunteers, as well as coaching leaders in business, non-profits, and ministry. 

My focus has always been investing in people.

Throughout a diverse career I've continued to mentor, teach, and lead individuals as well as teams.

 A Diverse Career

During my 25 years in technology I led process improvement initiatives at a global bank as a vice president in their Internet Banking Group, co-founded a short-lived startup, and before that, led teams responsible for creating and maintaining an international, after-hours, electronic exchange for trading futures and options.

My early career focused on education. After graduating with a Music Ed. degree I joined the faculty of the Inter-American School in Guatemala to teach Music, Math, and Bible. Returning to The States, I went on to staff a resource center for elementary students at a school for the hearing impaired in central NY State, and eventually moved to Long Island, NY to get a Masters in Computer Science from Stony Brook University.

I've had the privilege to work with and for a diverse set of people, in multiple professional disciplines, across a broad spectrum of organizations. So I understand and am able to help leaders and managers in business and corporate settings as well as education and ministry.

On a Personal Note

I grew up on a dirt road in the northeastern hills of Pennsylvania and now hail from Long Island, NY. I serve on the board of Long Island's local ICF chapter and volunteer primarily through my local church.  I play and listen to guitar (Clapton-Keaggy-Segovia), bike in the woods, and prefer to fish from the surf. The person who has been most influential in my life is Diane, my wife of 30+ years.


 
As John’s coach mentor, I have appreciated most his helping people in complex circumstances to break things down into manageable solutions. One of his greatest strengths is his ability to focus on expanding the opportunities of those he is coaching.
