John Zimmerman is a Learning Manager with the Agent Development Center at State Farm Insurance. He progressed from being a trainer, to writing and managing training programs, to consulting on other departments’ training programs, to leading teams (both small and large) in the training and development function. His favorite part of all his roles has been coaching others and watching them reach their potential. John and his wife Meighan live in Chandler, Arizona with their three great kids, Natasha, Trent, and Chase. When they are not involved with loads of kid and community activities (which is rare), they like eating out and relaxing in front of the TV. Someday they would love to return to the California coast, where they grew up.
