Leadership & Team Coaching

You can't handle everything yourself. 

Believe me, I've tried.

You'll find yourself emotionally tired, overwhelmed and distracted because "everything" is important, and when you try to focus on everything, you don't focus on anything.

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 consult today to see how we can BOTH help you and your team achieve strategic goals.

LET'S SEE IF THERE'S A FIT

Do You Get The Most Out Of Your Team?

Or, are you still trying to figure it out?

Did You Know...

Have you set the right conditions?

There's an art and science to a successful team launch. Let me show you how.

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

"I have never met a coach as extraordinarily gifted as Jeff. Seeing his ability to massively motivate, inspire and improve the focus of both individuals and teams is simply fascinating to me. Jeff is a brilliant communicator with a wicked sense of humour, who easily creates a safe environment to help people and teams to develop self awareness, disrupt complacency and become better versions of themselves.

Personally, I have been captivated by his magnetic skills, in teaching me how to find clarity in my goals, how to better align focus with my purpose and how to make more effective decisions. The knock on effects of these improvements have produced incredible results and cannot be understated in both my business and personal life. Without doubt I would recommend Jeff as a coach, a motivational speaker and an inspiring writer. And I’d consider it a true pleasure to work closely with him again."

Darcey Croft
CEO and Founder of Barenaturals

"I recently started my journey as an entrepreneur and ran into some obstacles I didn't anticipate. Realizing I needed some outside help to overcome those Jeff was the person I reached out to. The articles he has written for Forbes and Entrepreneur have provided great insight to me in the past and I wanted a coach who had proven methodologies which were tested in the real world. His time in the Navy SEALs gives him a unique perspective to develop strategies which can overcome challenges, develop the mindset to succeed, problem solving and tools needed to achieve more than what you think you can. Jeff applies the principles he has learned to the challenges many business professionals face and they are extremely effective. Each of his coaching sessions begins with determining the objective I want to achieve and he stays laser focused to help me reach the goals I've set out for myself. With his help I was able to overcome my challenges in a short amount of time and the return to my business he provided is incalculable. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to take their performance to the next level. "

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.”

Here you go:

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 point 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.

The Human Imperative Is The Business Imperative

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 or left to "hope."

Team performance drives business performance.

 

"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."

Rediscover

Let's quantify and qualify progress and equip you and your team with the tools you need to self-coach and self-sustain.

"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."

FACTS

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.

"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."

Brent Hess
Senior Vice President

"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."

Rob Keller
Former Director, Time Warner

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.
