About “BizCoach” Jason Rosado
As the head of Distinctive Coaching, Jason Rosado provides business coaching, keynote speeches and seminars to help service-based small business owners, consultants and health practitioners to create growth and success for themselves and their companies.
Jason has more than 20 years of training, management and entrepreneurial experience in a variety of business-to-business and business-to-consumer environments ranging from centralized development of operations and customer service to nation-wide sales training tours for new product rollouts. In recent years, he has had a relationship with Microsoft, acting as a product trainer and supporting all levels of retail sales professionals on how to effectively present and sell Microsoft hardware and software products.
Jason served as the head of training for Citizens Conferencing, a leading audio/video/web conferencing company servicing clients across all industries, including many Fortune 500 companies, prior to its purchase by Premiere Global Services. In this role, he developed, implemented and managed numerous training programs and initiatives including sales staff new hire orientation and development, organizational strategies and customer service programs for over 100 local employees and a remote sales force, culminating in assisting the organizational transition into the new company.
His collaborative coaching and training styles developed from combining his passion for helping people to fulfill their potential with his ability to have them learn and internalize information in a way that they can take action and apply it to their own experiences, situations and goals. In earlier training and management posts in the financial services and restaurant industries, his philosophy of developing employees in areas that are beneficial to both the companies’ business goals and the individuals’ career aspirations led to happier, more productive and accomplished employees, lower employee turnover and increased business growth. Jason’s current clients benefit by building better vision, strategies and motivation; greatly improving business skills and effectiveness; and sharply increasing their leadership, networking, marketing and sales abilities.
Jason holds a B.A. in Communication with concentrations in Social Psychology, Leadership & Group Dynamics, Public Speaking, Organizational Communication, Adult Learning and Motivation from the University of Illinois. Before his collegiate studies, Jason learned and practiced his leadership and service abilities while earning the rank of Eagle Scout and working as a musical instrument instructor and ensemble director for Boy Scout Troop #63 in River Forest, IL.
After his corporate career, Jason further studied and honed his coaching skills and graduated from the Core Essentials Program at Coach U. He currently serves on the Marketing Communications Committee and on the Board of Directors for the Oak Park – River Forest Chamber of Commerce and is the President of the Oak Park/Forest Park LeTip Chapter of LeTip International.
While Jason is actively involved in his community, serving these business organizations through leadership roles and volunteer activities, he also enjoys networking and runs formal business groups such as the Chicago Business Development Forum and the Oak Park Area Small Business Owners as well as mixing in more recreational activities like traveling, playing volleyball and tennis, and cycling. Jason grew up in Oak Park, IL. He and his wife currently live in the area and are very happy to have just had their first child, Nathan, in September, 2011.
