Leadership &
Team Coaching

You can't handle everything yourself.

Believe me, I’ve tried.

The one-person army approach doesn’t work.

You’ll find yourself emotionally tired, overwhelmed and distracted because “everything” is important and when you try to focus on everything, you really focus on nothing.

Don’t go it alone.

The smartest and most effective people and teams have somebody to challenge their thinking, hold them accountable and push them to do better by being better–and being better together.

Let’s schedule a free consult today to see how we can BOTH help you achieve your goals.

You’re the new leader of a team and know that tapping into your team’s potential is the missing ingredient to producing real results, but you don’t know where to start, right?

 

It’s time to get clear on how to lead with clarity and confidence and unlock the true potential of your team.

I can show you how!

Want to hear a typical conversation I have? I’ll take that as a “yes.”

Them: “So Jeff, what is it you do?”

Me: “Let me ask you this. Are you part of a team at your workplace, like a marketing team, a project team, or an executive team?”

Them: “Yes.”

Me: “Is it really a team, or would you consider it to be more of a group?”

Them: “What’s the difference?”

Me: “Exactly.”

 

The fact is, teams and groups are not the same, yet collective capacity is how work gets done. Business is about relationships and those relationships are clustered through work groups and teams.

A Simple 3-Step Process

Clarify

Let’s understand what “success” looks like for you, your team, and your company.

Coach

No more “teambuilding” offsites that don’t work. I help you make real-time corrections that create real-time improvements.

Carry Forward

My goal is to equip you and your team with the tools you need to self-coach and self-sustain indefinitely.

MEET JEFF

Not to sound arrogant, but let’s face it. Can you think of somebody more qualified to help you tackle tough challenges, think more effectively and navigate the challenges associated with leadership and teamwork than a former Navy SEAL?

Today's Landscape

“The importance of work teams appears to be gaining in strength as jobs get bigger, organizational structures get more complex, and more and more companies become multinational in scope. In today’s corporate environment, it appears the team – not the individual – holds the key to business success.”

– The Korn/Ferry Institute

But Here’s The Problem…

There’s no pipeline to inform employees as to what strong teams should look like. 

Ninety-nine percent of the time an employee’s definition of a team and his or her understanding of how teams work is learned through second-hand experience such as a manager, a supervisor, a colleague–all of whom may know how teams should work. But then again, maybe not. 

Team performance shouldn’t be haphazard.

Team performance drives business performance.

It’s easy to assemble a group.

It’s not easy to turn that group into a team.

Groups don’t become teams by chance.

They become teams through intention and deliberate effort.

Many teams fail because...

Employees aren’t prepared to transition from individual contributor to team member.

My Approach

Teams don’t operate by themselves but rather with and across other teams. I take a systems approach to team development by considering the internal and external systems, dynamics, and context that influence and shape the team (and alternatively, how the team influences and shapes them).

 

Training and Certifications

Aside from the whole “SEAL thing,” I hold a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from THE Ohio State University (not to be confused with Ohio State University, of course) and a Master’s of Science in Organizational Leadership from Norwich University. I also hold certificates in:

  • Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance, George Mason University
  • International Coaching Federation (ACC)
  • EQi 2.0
  • Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory
  • Adaptability Metric (co-founded)

Experience

I’ve worked across numerous industries, such as:

  • Telecommunications
  • Finance
  • Oil & Gas
  • Healthcare
  • Startups
  • Tech
  • Agriculture
  • Consumer Products

Across them all, there was one challenge that remained constant:

How individual contributors can work together toward a common goal.

Let me show you how.
