I would follow Jeff Boss right to the top of any ski slope even though I have never skied before! He is a true motivator and leader of character! Jeff's coaching applies across a wide array of professions so I benefit daily from his advice and appreciate his unique wisdom and experience.
I very much enjoyed your presentation at the PGA Show and have reflected often on several things you spoke about. Thank you for putting together such an effective, and personal, presentation.
Wow what a great podcast by Athlete Network Influencer Jeff Boss. Jeff takes his 13 years as a NAVY SEAL and cross pollinates it to business. Episode 2 is a must listen to. Jeff talks about his journey to become a SEAL, the challenges of Hell Week, what it's like to jump without your parachute opening, and what it was like to get shot, TWICE!!!! Do yourself a favor and listen to this great Podcast.
Thank you Jeff for your talk and the workshop during Pennsylvania’s 2016 Public Health Preparedness Summit. Your message of survival, overcoming setbacks that could delay success, was inspiring and profound. The details of your experiences and lessons learned cut across the many disciplines in the room. Your message isn’t just for returning soldiers of war, but for the businessmen and women, First Responders, Public Health, emergency management and citizens of the world. Thank you for your service and your insight on how to succeed and grow regardless of the past and any obstacles that lay before us.
I have had plenty of coaches in my life but Jeff is the first one who balances asking questions with simply telling you the truth. Sometimes you need to find your way and sometimes you need a kick in the arse; Jeff can do both. His active listening and empathy never come across as contrived or conflicted. I have reached new heights in my life, personally and professionally, I like to think a good part of that success is due to Jeff Boss.
Jeff challenges you to answer tough questions”. This self-reflection has been an important exercise to guide me towards a path, which represents the values I would like to display as a manager. It has been great working with Jeff and I would recommend him as a personal development coach and mentor.
We train EntreWarriors in Istanbul, Turkey through our very unique Girişim Savaşçısı Program. Jeff is one of our outstanding mentors. He has a very deep philosophy gained in many years by being a SEAL and he transfers this great knowledge on managing the struggle in a very simple and a smooth way with our attendees.
Jeff is a Leader! He may say that he learned so much more about leadership in the Navy SEAL Team (and that may be true) but he is a true embodiment of the saying "Leaders are not made. They are born." Listen to this man and you'll be better off for it!
It’s leaders like yourself who always help to drive out the hindrance of any complacency that sneaks in so quietly. I truly appreciate you sharing your wealth of knowledge.
Jeff is a true professional and deeply cares about having a positive impact on his client base. As a former Navy Seal Jeff has specialized knowledge that make him uniquely qualified to coach high performance behavior. In today’s uncertain economic climate, the ability to adapt and embrace change helps to maintain a competitive advantage – and adaptability is something that Jeff teaches quite well. Probably one of the most important attributes that Jeff brings to the table is the experience that he gained while serving our country. He overcame some extraordinarily difficult circumstances that make him well suited to coach high performance into all levels of an organization. Most importantly Jeff has the interpersonal skills that you look for in a leader. They can’t be taught, and are something that come along once or twice in one’s career. Jeff is truly “one of a kind” and I highly recommend him to any organization looking to develop their decision makers into more impactful leaders.
Focused, driven and compassionate are words that come to mind when I think about Jeff Boss, I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff for a number of months in a co-operative coaching/consulting relationship. Above all, I am most impressed with Jeff’s insights and interpretation of chaos (unplanned change) in the workplace. His tools for supporting you to act on what you can adapt and change have enhanced my perspectives on workplace challenges and opportunities. And, Jeff’s determined support of serving others to serve at their highest potential is truly heartfelt. Jeff is an accomplished author, amazing coach and truly valued leader. Jeff comes with my highest recommendation as your mentor and coach.
Selecting the right business coach can be a daunting task to say the least. The key attributes I was looking for in my selection process were primarily built around establishing: trust, relevance and direct impact. After a one hour consultation with Jeff, it was very clear that all three boxes were checked. Jeff brings a unique approach to business coaching that ties back into his time as an elite operator in the NSWDG. Weekly learnings/teachings are further supplemented by his regular articles found in reputable sources such as Forbes and Entrepreneur. By using very simplistic, but powerful methods to both clear obstacles and overcome business challenges, Jeff has assisted both me and my team in making immediate long term course corrections.”
The learning’s that Jeff shares from his SEAL days are lessons that are easily transferable to business and to life in general. We immediately implemented After Action Reviews (AARs) into our business process and a “Better not Best” attitude into our team culture. His humble and human style makes him approachable and engaging, he literally had us hanging on every word. I would strongly recommend Jeff Boss to any organization that is looking for an inspiring leader to motivate a team and give no-nonsense direction on how to develop quickly.
"It is humbling to have an individual with your resume present to our team. Thank you for taking the time to learn our business and demonstrate how your experiences can be applied to our organization. As you know, we have incorporated some of your communication strategies effective immediately. Specifically, the after action reviews that are critical for continuous improvement. We no longer settle for being the best – that is a destination. We aim to get better – that is our journey!"
"The wisdom of this "special ops" warrior is a must read. Regardless of your profession, Jeff Boss captures his life lessons from the most elite military training and combat experiences to inform character development and action in our everyday lives."
"Jeff, thank you on behalf of ResMed for engaging with all levels of sales and leadership, and for the unbelievably inspirational story you shared with our entire Americas Leadership teams. You taught us the importance of adaptability, to shoot, move and communicate, and by the way everyone is using after action reviews now! Your teaching on egoless leadership is quite certainly backed by your own very humble approach. No one left your talks without being motivated to do more both personally and professionally, you’re an inspiration and an amazing leader. I can’t thank you enough for your time and dedication to our teams."
The creating team clarity webinar was more than I expected. My intent for intending was to understand what it takes to provide clarity in order to produce an effective team. Jeff provides the essential fundamentals in order for leaders begin the next steps to improve team performance. This is not a boring “classroom webinar”. Jeff is engaging, thought provoking, with a nice touch of added humor. Jeff provides free tools that will start you on the path to start you on the path to improve your team hurdles.
To be force a multiplier in any organization, one must synthesize the unforgiving inputs of chaos. Jeff Boss provides the framework (blueprint) to achieve excellence and bestows the tools to identify, adapt and repurpose under any circumstances (uncertainty).
Navigating Chaos is one of the best leadership books you are ever going to read. Told with wit, charm, and intelligence - it is a must for every businessperson serious about success. Mix Sun Tzu’s The Art Of War with Covey’s The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People and you only begin to scratch the surface of Boss’s engaging and exceedingly well-written Navigating Chaos. Boss went to hell and back to procure the leadership insights contained within Navigating Chaos. What he delivers is beyond anything you will read this year!
A more credible authority than a Navy SEAL on navigating crisis simply does not exist. Jeff Boss does a masterful job defining how experiences and character shape performance in any challenging situation. You have to be the decision maker and challenge yourself to improve. Start by reading this book!
"Jeff Boss is a shining example of the power of quiet leadership. The perseverance, humility, and team-first attitude that allowed him to excel as a Navy SEAL are directly applicable to all leaders."
Jeff Boss' "Navigating Chaos" is a gift to anyone striving to unlock their full potential. Through his compelling and introspective personal narrative, coupled with 13 years of hard earned experience, Jeff show us that being elite is a choice, not at all G-d given, and is driven by daily habits, passion in the face of adversity, and a deep sense of purpose that can be harnessed by anyone to achieve the nearly impossible.
Authors write about heroes like Jeff and yet, in this book, we get it straight from the source. His parallels to the business world are eye opening. If you have a desire to be the best at what you do, if you are a leader in any capacity, the learnings in this book are not only an honor and privilege to know, they are game changing.
In the field of medicine there are striking analogies to the battlefield. There is a background of intensive training, a required focus replete with adrenalin rushes, peaks and troughs of triumph and failure, and challenges and obstacles that demand the greatest need for keen intelligence and technology to fight and or prevent disease. Leaders must exhibit skills of adaptability, tenacity, stamina and physical, emotional, mental and spiritual fitness with resilience and courage--yes, courage! Opening the door to an exam room, or operating theatre, the physician/ surgeon doesn't always know what she or he might be facing. The "bad guys" can be elusive and strike no less vigorously than a devastating terror attack at any time! Jeff Boss's book " Navigating Chaos" is acutely applicable to doctors and surgeons as they learn to navigate the new and ever changing rules on the health care landscape.
