Cultivating Wisdom

Jeff inspires both individuals and organization to move beyond their set limits to seek adversity and gain resilience while fostering wisdom.

Optimism in the
Face of Adversity

Organization must provide a positive optimism vision for their organization. Adversity is not not time to worry, it’s a time to learn for the future!

Learning Innovation

Move beyond thinking about technology and move to innovation. Innovation is a catalyst for optimistic change in our organizations.

Human Intelligence
and AI

Explore what we, humans, believe is the best option of the future. Artificial intelligence, in its many forms, will shape our future but what is our role in this shaping?

Building Resiliency

Resilience is KEY to surviving a turbulent environment. Growth is a natural outcome of resilience, but must be trained, learned and developed in both individuals and organizations.

Workforce of the Future

A global knowledge workforce changes the requirements of workers and the needs of the organization. Shaping the role of this next wave of workers is critical to our competitive market advantage.
