Jason Spears – Albany Business Coach
Some of the most influential people in my life have been coaches. That connection with a coach can be so powerful. Especially with the kind of coach that can see the potential in you, that believes in you, whose sole motivation is seeing you become the best version of yourself.
I’ve been so fortunate to have those kinds of coaches in my life. Their example continues to fuel me and I strive to be that coach for others, everyday.
One of the greatest privileges in my life is to help people fulfill their dreams and visions of why they started in the first place. Joining people on their journey and witnessing them grow and develop into everything they were meant to become.
I’ve lead and helped turn around struggling departments and organizations for over 20 years. As a coach and consultant, I’ve advised business leaders, worked closely with them as they overcame obstacles, and counseled them on leadership strategies. I’ve provided leadership training through state government programs and to leaders in the not-for-profit and medical industries. While I didn’t do it for awards or recognition, I’ve been fortunate to be a top 40 under 40 award winner.
I’ve had people come to me during some of their darkest, most anxious moments. They continue to put their trust in me because they know I’ll give them my undivided attention. They know I care deeply about them and their business. They know that the outcome is as important to me as it is to them.
My coaching philosophy has always been about helping leaders and businesses transform. You could say I thrive on transformation. I’ve always been at my best when I feel the deck is stacked against me and I feel my calling is to be there for others when they feel the deck is stacked against them. It’s when some of the most creative solutions present themselves, and the most amazing transformations occur.
The greatest compliment I’ve had from a client? “Jason genuinely cares about me as a person and our success as an organization.”
My best piece of business advice? Never stop learning and growing as a leader!
You teach what you know, but you impart who you are.
Albany Business Coach
I have worked with different coaches over the past 15 years, many of whom have had their own agenda. This hasn’t necessarily taken my
business to the places I’ve wanted it to go.
Jason has taken the time to listen to my big picture needs, but has
also been willing to stop and talk about the immediate day to day
issues that arise. I like that we have forged a clear pathway forward.
It’s methodical, as the big picture has been broken down into manageable and meaningful steps.
It’s also been fun. We always manage
to have a laugh and break the seriousness of dealing with big issues.
The journey has been inspiring.
Coaching with Jason has been a most beneficial experience. Every minute has been productive. Having Jason listen to my concerns and guide me in the action plan is moving our organization forward, increasing our productivity, and giving us confidence that our organization is going in the right direction.Sandy Bamford

We have been in a coaching relationship with Jason and Rhapsody for over a year, and it has greatly benefitted us personally as well as our organization. It has helped us see things from a different perspective and it has given us inspiration and hope for future growth and development.
Jason was very helpful in helping us clarify our vision and finding ways to improve our systems. His professionalism coupled with his positive and encouraging personality makes him perfect for this type of job.
I highly recommend him!Kjell Johansson
