The best part about making a concerted effort to be a CC produced tangible results. Whether it was a quick note from my boss saying ‘You did a great job explaining that’ or after working through issues and solving a work problem with a client/co-worker and looking back through emails and seeing a positive difference with how I interacted with the other people involved compared to how I interacted before the workshop. More opportunities have been made available to me to be included in other projects that interest me which has been the most exciting aspect.

I’m sure most people prefer a healthy learning environment and I hope everyone could have a Jef in their life that would help them navigate life lessons better. The world would be better.



“Last year my (13 yo) daughter was asking me to get her therapy for feeling easily embarrassed and awkward at school. [Jef’s training] turned out to be better than therapy and a game changer for her.  She started 8th grade at a new school this year and has already made tons of friends!  I am sooo grateful for Jef helping teach my kids valuable life skills at a super critical point in their development.”

My experience with you and my friend was not just helpful, but sustaining during a crazy time in my life. It is too easy to focus on the tasks at hand, and ignore the person in front of me. 
One of the values of spending time with you is that you teach in such a way that the concepts are easy to grasp, and yet require some work to change ourselves to align with those principles. It makes goal setting easier.  Thank you for developing this.


Many members of our group were shy and hesitant. They worried that they would stand out in a way that highlighted their shortcomings. Within minutes our entire group was deeply engaged in the powerful insights he shared. He connected our large (300+ people) in a way that had them mesmerized, and gave them practice in the concepts he introduced.

When we finished, everyone who participated felt empowered to not only communicate more effectively, but was able to look at themselves with an objectivity that naturally leads to growth. I can’t recommend (Jef) highly enough! After learning with him your group will be better skilled and more connected to each other in a unifying and astounding way. If you are considering bringing Jef in, you are fortunate to have that option and you definitely should take advantage of it. He is worth every penny!!


Your Humor At Work

Charge your battery and theirs with your sense of humor!

Having a good sense of humor is MORE than just laughing at or telling a joke, it’s the ability to get others to laugh. Humor can advance your career, increase sales and productivity, strengthen relationships, increase overall health, and attract friends and clients.

Those who ineffectively use humor can end up hurting themselves.  Humor can help or hurt you socially & financially – not to mention what it can do to your confidence!   

Gain confidence!
Socially and financially through the effective use of humor.  

Inclusion & Diversity

Don’t just add a seat at the table – add value.

Inclusion means exploring outside of your comfortable circle of influence. For some, that means listening to someone other than themselves!

There’s more than just adding a seat at the table to “include”.  AND – it’s more than just asking for their opinion or ideas.  It’s supporting and empowering others to contribute to the success of the whole.  It’s making your partner look good.  When a voice is heard, it inspires more in others.

Using the “Yes And” Principles to collaborate…  and OPTIMIZE our differences.


“Ideas ahead of the competition!”™

No matter where you sit in the hierarchy of the company, you are guaranteed to encounter the need for forward thinking.
