About Jonathan Bollag


Jonathan Bollag, president and owner, has immersed himself in the study of career and life coaching. He excels at translating an individual’s specific interests, preferences, and needs into a rich and fulfilling work and personal life, and in providing direction for those seeking a new professional career. His fields of study have included clinical psychology, business management, and executive coaching.

While attending Lewis and Clark College, Jonathan was influenced by a psychological laboratory class based on B.F. Skinner’s theory of behavior reinforcement — that when behavior is reinforced, it tends to continue and repeat. This theory laid the foundation for his approach to personal development: that in taking positive steps for yourself and your career, you will be rewarded with more positive opportunities.

Additionally, Jonathan is a CPP Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and CPP Strong Interest Inventory® Certified Practitioner Administrator. CPP is the only publisher of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and Strong Interest Inventory®, and its certification programs are highly regarded as the best preparatory programs in the field today.
