The Adventure of Change
Jeff’s classic presentation stands the test of time because “change is the only constant.” As a mountaineer, Jeff recounts his 30+ years of expedition experience with vivid and exhilirating graphics, and offers his wisdom and levity on staying calm, centered, and directed while facing the most extreme adversity.
Leading From the Inside Out
Using the ancient symbols of the Native Medicine wheel, the Tibetan Wheel of Life, the mythological labyrinth, and the archetype of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, Jeff illustrates how the greatest leaders are motivated by passion, purpose, planet, and people.
