I was introduced to Gordon O. Yonel in 2004 by a mutual friend. We had lunch a struck up a personal relationship, drawn by common business interests, not to mention we were both immigrants. I had come from the UK in 1989. Gordon is the epitome of listening. You know the old adage that God gave me two ears and one pair of lips so I may hear more and speak less! His adept talent for listening, with a few very probing and thought-provoking questions is nothing short of genius. Concise, to the point and no nonsense style breeds confidence in being open, frank and trusting of Gordon’s method. With many years of experience leading teams in the software industry all too often at the top you are expected to have the answers. Confidently I can say today working alongside Gordon on business challenges it is as if I have a hidden “Co-CEO” behind me to navigate the decision cycle. Gordon O. Yonel is a special human being for a host of reasons: e.g., his work with the Hospice house, his commitment to making others around him better, personal integrity and for those of us lucky enough to engage his talents in a professional capacity. His enthusiasm to listen, analyze and coach in a manner that makes it crystal clear, a clarity no matter what the challenge presents. Gordon, as my mother would say, is like an old pair of slipper:, well tried, comfortable to be with and fits well no matter what the situation! Gordon’s business acumen is unrivaled. His ability to decipher the key elements and coach you through a thorough step-by-step plan outlined in simplicity is simply extraordinary!
