Why I Coach
I Build Confident Leaders through my values-based approach−through a message that honors who you are.
There is level of validation and respect that is missing in the lives of many leaders today; at least in how they feel about themselves. The result of this values-based process is confidence−in who they are and in the acceptance that they can do something about where they are.
I focus on leaders because I have special passion for those who give of themselves to care for others through a personal accountability of leadership, management, coaching, mentoring, etc. Leaders deserve special attention. They need special, specific support. They deserve attention for who they are.

“I may have written something to you like this before, but I am being led to do it again. Many people can go a lifetime without ever making a major impact in another person’s life. You should feel proud and accomplished for having so many stories to share on how you impacted so many people’s lives. Since I am not authorized to speak for everyone I can only speak for myself here. The time you spent/invested with me during one of the low’s in my professional career helped slingshot me to great accomplishments. Understanding who I am, what strengths I bring and how to use those strengths to drive an organization have proven to be priceless. And these lessons learned did not stop at work, but transformed my life.
So who should be thanking who? Jeff, partnering with you has been one of the greatest highlights in my life. You helped me bring organization to a mind that was full of unstructured thoughts and ideas. You helped me see myself from a different angle. You brought me out from behind the rock in the stream where I was stuck for years. Today I stand here with pride in my accomplishments. I’m amazed at the things I have done that would have fallen so far outside my comfort zone.
Thank you, thank you, thank you…” –Robert, Illinois – 2016
