As a performance coach, I believe everyone is a performer and I am committed to getting the psychological skills of peak performance and mental toughness into the hands of performers of all ages and all stages. I specialize in coaching performing artists, but I have also worked with athletes, business leaders, public speakers, physicians, and attorneys.
“After taking your workshop and practicing the techniques you taught, my anxieties about performing were replaced with confidence, and I felt like I could meet the challenge. Thank you, Dr. Skidmore."

"My work with Jon has changed the course of my career. Before knowing him, I had lost the joy of performing and had no clue as to how to focus my mental, spiritual, and physical energies on stage and in the studio. But thanks to him, I have learned how to forget about myself and execute the task at hand with clarity and conviction.And most importantly with joy."
