Barry-Wehmiller CEO Bob Chapman met Steve Jones, former head football coach at Kimberly High School, several years ago through a mutual friend.

Coach Jones said something to Bob that made a lasting impression: “When people truly care for one another, it’s amazing how hard they will work for each other.”

When Coach Jones stepped down in 2021, his career at Kimberly High School included five WIAA state championships, 10 conference championships, a 70-game winning streak that set a state record and an overall 129-9 record. He was the 2016 and 2017 Associated Press state coach of the year and the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association/Green Bay Packers coach of the year from 2015 to 2017.

But Coach Jones’ desire to spread the principles of caring leadership extends much further than his team. He developed and taught classes on leadership at Kimberly High School, touching the lives of many future leaders.

In fact, that's why Coach Jones stepped off the football field, to try to help leaders everywhere up their game.

In 2021, Coach Jones and Lucas Jadin, a professional mindset coach, co-authored the Amazon best-seller,The Twin Thieves: How Great Leaders Build Great Teams. Together, they formed Jadin Jones, a company that seeks to inspire and coach world-class business leaders, educators, and elite athletes to thrive in competitive environments, to empower themselves and others and compassionately create cultures of strength, unity, and resiliency.

On this podcast, first released in 2019, Coach Jones talks about his efforts on and off the football field to bring caring leadership principles to upcoming generations. Leaders in business should listen closely.
