Inspired by the Uncarved Block of Taoist philosophy, Jeremy Solomons & Associates (JSA) helps current and future leaders to realize the incredible potential that is within each of them by connecting with their inner strengths, talents, values and goals and engaging and communicating effectively with the expanding, complex world around them.
Founded in Washington, DC in 1991 and now headquartered in Austin, Texas, JSA is one of the one per cent of independent entrepreneurial organizations that has survived and thrived for over 20 years.
The secret of our success is simple – The Four C’s:
We pride ourselves on doing the right thing in the right way at the right time every time and we see every initial client contact as the start of a committed working relationship over the long haul. JSA is ready to help whenever needed in whatever way possible.
Jeremy and every one of his trusted, hand-picked associates have extensive experience in the broad, real world of business, non-profits, government and academia and we bring a pragmatic expertise to everything we do.
We do not have “off-the-shelf” solutions as we do not have “off-the-shelf” clients. Through detailed needs assessment and painstaking research, we ensure that we satisfy the unique and complex needs of each client in the most timely and cost-effective way.
We respect our current and potential clients’ busy schedules by only communicating as necessary in a timely, proactive and efficient way.
