Jorge M. Gama, LPC-S provides a strong program for LPC-Associates including individual coaching sessions, group sessions, business/entrepreneur-focused groups, ethics reviews, and educational reading. Jorge employed hard work and focused intensity to build a strong background in the DFW area, where he has been involved in growing a mobile crisis team to work with chronically suicidal and homicidal caseloads. He established a Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Program for a hospital, treating patients recovering from past traumas, substance abuse, failure to launch, and chronic mental illness. Jorge has advanced trainings in Crisis Incident Stress Management, REBT Choice Theory and Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

As a supervisor, his goal is to encourage and push his supervises to complete their supervision competently in the minimum time required so they can move to their next level fully licensed and be exceptionally qualified.

Jorge is currently not accepting any LPC-Associates for supervision.

In his book, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, John Maxwell describes The Law of the Lid and how “leadership ability is the lid that determines a person’s level of effectiveness”. In short, if the leader does not continually develop and improve skills to lead his or her team in a healthy way, the team, business, program, and profits will plateau.

How can a leader improve these skills? Master groups, seminars, self-improvement books, a business coach that wants a year long commitment? Are these processes the most effective for today’s leader?
