Over his career, Jeff has helped leaders, executives, and their teams in multiple industries take control over their future by actively engaging in what he has termed the three core conversations: Grounding in Reality, Envisioning Possibility, and Prioritizing Action. He has learned that it is only by establishing alignment both within and across organizational units around the decisions that emerge from these conversations can an organization truly move forward to create sustainable change.
As a coach, he strongly believes in the inherent wisdom and significant potential in people. They are the masters of their solutions; as such, he has learned to guide them safely through their zones of discomfort and toward shifts in thinking and behavior that lead to greater congruence between their overarching purpose and near-term priorities, ultimately leading to enhanced levels of engagement, learning, and performance.
