"I can always count on Jonathan to cut through the clutter and noise of an issue to clearly articulate the larger patterns. His gift is to listen to the details of a topic or challenge and not respond to the details. Rather, challenge everyone to up their game to think about what is really at play. Not only does he make the insights clear, but also actionable. You can find people that can give you input on a topic. It is much harder to find someone who can help you make some sense of it."Dan Lovy, Executive Co-Director, HealthGrid Alliance
