Our History and Work
JLH Associates was started in 1992 by Karen Gaskins Jones and has since become known for its leadership training. She remains our main consultant as well as our engagement leader at our headquarters in Upper Marlboro, MD, and has written several books and articles on leadership. Jones has made our organization a collaborating partner with nonprofits like CompassPoint and TransitionGuides (now with Raffa P.C.) to help clients of all kinds manage their workforce better.

The environment we create and leave is supportive, encouraging, and perfect for learning how to impart positive change. No matter how different their personalities and work styles, the people who participate in our programs overwhelmingly agree that they are:
