About Dr. Jackson

Dr. Jesse W. Jackson III is an internationally recognized school executive coach and advisor who specializes in at-risk student achievement and in changing organizational culture.

Dr. Jackson has been in private practice since 1998 and is currently one of the most requested staff-development trainers in the United States on the topics of negative student behavior, staff problems, and decisive workplace leadership. His organization has trained thousands of professional staff members, parents, and students worldwide. As a keynote speaker, seminar leader, coach, and professional counselor, Dr. Jackson addresses more than 300,000 people each year.

He has written seventy books, several of which have become international bestsellers, including The Best Man; Daddy Issues: Why Fathers Are Important; College or Prison: The Male Crisis of the 21st Century; “Don’t Kick Them Out!”; Suspension Is not an Option! Closing the Poverty Gap!; How to Help and Teach Students Who Experience Trauma; How to Prevent Educator Burnout; and Success or Failure: Leaders Are the Difference.

Dr. Jackson has visited and trained staff at more than 1,300 schools throughout the United States, establishing a reputation as a difference-making game-changer for the organizations he has worked with. Schools that partner with Dr. Jackson commonly see lower suspension rates, higher graduation rates, improved standardized test scores, better student–teacher relationships, and more productive staff performance.

During the covid-19 pandemic and school crisis, Dr. Jackson has become one of the most trusted sources for school leadership by developing the Covid-19 School Re-Entry Process Training Program, which more than 200 schools and districts have used to provide an emotionally safe blueprint for returning staff and students.

Dr. Jackson continues to travel weekly throughout the United States, providing students with hope and options, giving parents confidence and teachers clarity, and offering school leaders an irrefutable blueprint for school success. Recently, Dr. Jackson has developed the Culture Awareness Institute to provide guidance for teachers and staff to address the issue of race in their school.

Dr. Jackson’s goal is to guide and support one hundred thousand school leaders in school culture, workplace issues, student discipline, and trauma resolution for students.
