We learn best when we close our mouth and open our ears and eyes. Listening is hard work! It is part of being self-aware, others-aware and LEARNING.
While undergoing some significant structural changes, we discovered that our exec team needed better ways to communicate with each other; in particular skills related to listening and empathy. Jeff confronted areas of weakness with forthrightness, kindness and clarity. He brought accountability to the process with follow up and reminders. The outcomes are benefiting each person for themselves and for their organizational role.CEO/Partner, Righteous Clothing
Jeff displays the rare gift of understanding the complexity and demands of organizations without losing sight of their most critical resource - - people. Whether team-building with staff, assisting leaders to develop a business model from emerging concepts, or connecting the right people at the right time, he identifies solutions before most people see the problem. Jeff's integrity is above reproach and his wise counsel is indispensable.Executive Director, Responder Life
Our nonprofit was facing critical challenges with our growth, measuring success and sustainability. We were blessed with a cohort instructed by Jeff. It was clear from day one that not only is Jeff a man of knowledge, conviction and measure, his students also held him in high regard. As a result of this project, our organization went on to accomplish its mission tenfold and we remain grateful.Self-Care Advocate and Author
