Transparency – “I can deal with gray. I just cannot live in it.” I have learned that this Value should always be balanced with Confidentiality.
Accountability – Do what you say you are going to do.
Respect – Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Humor – Always be able to smile and laugh at yourself, the situation, and for no reason.
MY GIFTSWant to figure out your Spiritual Gifts?
Leadership – Management is “how” to climb the ladder. Leadership is knowing which wall the ladder should be leaning against. The Greek word for the spiritual gift of leadership is proistemi. This word means to lead, to assist, to protect and to care for others.
Administration – The Greek word for the spiritual gift of administration is Kubernesis. This is a unique term that refers to a shipmaster or captain. The literal meaning is “to steer,” or “to rule or govern.” It carries the idea of someone who guides and directs a group of people toward a goal or destination. .
Teaching – The Greek word for those with the spiritual gift of teaching is didaskalos. From the root of this word we get our English word, “didactic.” The word didasko means to teach, instruct, instill doctrine, explain, and expound. .
Wisdom – The gift of wisdom allows people to understand deeper meaning and apply knowledge, beliefs, and experience to every day situations. Those gifted with wisdom often understand root causes of disagreements, conflict, and barriers to growth and development. People with wisdom help others understand and clarify options to make good decisions..
Experienced Project Manager
Jonathan created a software program for our logistics company 20 years ago. This software is the platform for the daily operations and is integral to our operation. He was easy to work with and very receptive to suggestions. I would hire him again with no hesitation.

Jonathan is one of the most intelligent, well-versed, helpful and efficient people that I have worked with. He is an asset to any organization and will advance every community of which he is apart.
If cat-herding were an olympic sport, Jonathan would be a gold medalist. I worked with him closely for 12+ months on a major technology rollout at a government agency. He was a fantastic change agent. Within a few weeks he established a strong personal rapport with all the key stakeholders. He listened to all sides, saw the hidden agendas, and approached every interaction with patience and thoughtfulness. Firm yet compassionate, he kept the project goals firmly in site and delivered a successful rollout ahead of schedule.
Jonathan is persuasive, persistent, and organized. He helped launch our internal social media platform on time.
Johnathan was been great to work with and very knowledgeable.
Jonathan is thorough, knowlegable and extremely helpful in ensursing a smooth and seamless process when workiing through deals and tranactions. I would recommend him as a business associate and a service provider.
Jonathan regularly organizes and hosts networking meetings and events so that people with similar business and personal interests may come together to share their expertise. Besides being a generous guy, he is passionate about his work and helping others, including charitable organizations. I look forward to working with Jonathan to sell real property in estates I am administering.
I’ve worked with Jonathan in the past, as we shadow-partnered on some work together. The combination of his creativity and his connections allowed some opportunities to successfully manifest, which I don’t believe would have otherwise.
It was a pleasure to work with him, and I’d do so again.
Jonathan is very knowledgeable about the process of identifying and acquiring good investment properties. He is also well connected in the area of financing your investment endeavors.
Jonathan is very detailed oriented. He is efficient and understands the in’s and out’s of project management.
Jonathan Mickles keeps the project moving forward, plain and simple. He is an unstoppable force that puts the right amount of pressure on a project: just enough so it keeps advancing but not too much so that people don’t feel pressured.
He keeps the team together and focused and makes sure everyone has the information they need. Over the years he has built up an impressive arsenal of resources and when you are stuck he has no problem sharing his resources.
His interpersonal skills are among the best I have ever seen, managing different personalities and working through any differences team members might have.
I greatly appreciate his efforts, his guidance and his calm demeanor.
