About Jeff

Coach Consultant Speaker

I am motivated to elevate leaders and empower others to reach their potential. As a coach, consultant and speaker I partner with leaders and organizations to improve their level of effectiveness, efficiency and excellence.

The world we live in is filled with both rapid change and tremendous opportunities. As a coach I assist others in navigating the change and creating a path that will lead them towards the fulfillment of their specific objectives.

My extensive corporate and ministry background has made me uniquely qualified to assist others in reaching their goals.

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance from Bowling Green State University and was subsequently employed by IBM as a marketing representative.  Following IBM, I worked for National City Bank in Toledo, Ohio, as a Trust Administrator/Officer and became head of the Corporate Trust Department.

As president of JSS Consulting Inc., I help today’s leaders transition into a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment. After 18 years of working with pastors and leaders I have developed keen insight in the areas of strategic planning, leadership development, systems implementation, and enhancing staff productivity.

I also serve as Lead Pastor of Strong Tower Ministries in Fredericksburg, Virginia. It is a vibrant and diverse congregation of nearly 2000. In addition, I serve as Director of Cornerstone Global Network under the leadership of Bishop Michael Pitts. It is a network of over 60 churches throughout the United States, Mexico, and the U.K.

I believe that the power of partnership makes the impossible possible. My coaching is designed to support you in discovering the solutions that will unlock the success that is awaiting you.

I have been married to my college sweetheart Nicola since July 11, 1992 and we are the proud parents of Lauren, Kristin, and Jeffrey.

I also hold certifications for the following:

  • Hudson Institute of Coaching
  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator
  • The DiSC Personality Assessment

Counseling How Coaching can benefit you…

My Coaching Approach
It is a client driven process that focuses on creating an ideal outcome through identifying solutions that will enable the person to move forward. It assists the person in locating the challenges that prevent them in the process. It also crafts strategies to address these challenges and achieve personal success. I recognize that each client is different and every scenario is unique. Therefore I do not offer a canned approach or a cookie cutter method. I strive to be sensitive to the individuality of each client. All conversations are held in strictest of confidence.

The Ideal Client
I work with individuals who aspire to grow and are committed to taking ownership for their development. I love to partner with clients that are willing to invest the time and energy into a process that enables them to raise their level of leadership and tap into unrealized potential. If you are ready to roll up your sleeves and work towards a brighter future you are possibly a candidate for my services.
