Hi, I’m Dr Joseph Reed. I provide training and other individual and organizational effectiveness services to corporations and institutions and the people who work within them. Thanks for checking out my site.


I’ve been involved in the field of Learning and Development for over twenty-five years. I’ve had direct managerial experience as a Marine Corps Officer, University Administrator, and Manager of Training & Development within a financial services corporation.

I’ve also had experience as a graduate faculty member within the Management & Information Sciences Department at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. I taught a number of graduate classes, including Management Theory, Organizational Behavior and Strategic Management within the University’s MBA Program.

My educational experiences include a Ph.D. from Temple University in Organizational Psychology and a Master’s Degree from  Glassboro State College, where I was trained as a counselor. I’ve also been designated an MBTI® Master Practitioner by Consulting Psychologist Press. I led the MBTI® Certification Course for Practioners for a number of years.

I’m currently the CEO of J.R. Training, Inc., a Training and Organizational Development Consulting Firm.


My expertise spans several competencies including:

  • Management
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Influence
  •  MBTI®
  • Productivity
  • Critical Thinking
  • Interpersonal Skills

I have extensive experience designing and leading training seminars. I spend on average 140 days every year working with groups – either leading seminars or in other types of speaking engagements.

I’ve been on faculty with the American Management Association (AMA) since 1991. Within AMA, I’ve authored a variety of public seminars including:

  • Mastering Organizational Politics, Influence and Alliances
  • The Executive Effectiveness Course
  • Performance Management: From Hiring to Firing
  • Management Skills for The Experienced Manager

I’ve also been on faculty with the Project Management Institute (PMI) for over 16 years. One of my designs – Influencing Without Authority – has been running continuously within PMI Seminar Worlds for the last fifteen years.

Over the last twenty-five years I’ve had the opportunity to work directly with clients across a wide range of industries, including Pharmaceutical, Financial, Professional Services and Manufacturing. If you’d like examples, please take a look at this Partial Client List.


I do work around the world, but I live in the Philadelphia area. Yes. I am an Eagles fan.

I’ve been married for thirty-four years (my wife – lovingly I hope – says it seems like a hundred and thirty-four). We have three children, who I am extremely proud of – Chris, Sean and Kellsey. We also have a wonderful Daughter-In-Law Lindsay and two unbelievable grandchildren, Carter and Avery. Our Goldendoodle Gracie rounds out our family.
