As an adaptability coach, I take proven strategies and behaviors from 13 years in special operations and business consulting and apply them to your career and company. My coaching uses simple, reliable, daily behaviors that lead to measurable performance improvement and sustained excellence.

The Adaptability Coach

Success has never been more fleeting than in the competitive environment of today. The increased speed of technology and geographic dispersion create new leadership demands and unforeseen challenges that widen the gap for individuals and organizations to stay relevant. Adaptability coaching helps you navigate change so you can drive a greater impact, be more effective and create greater value for yourself, your team and your company. In many organizations, an employee receives a promotion to the next level without ever having received the “memo” on how to manage, how to direct, or how to lead. So what happens is people rely upon the same skills and know-how that earned them that promotion because that’s what they know best, but it’s not necessarily the right tool for the job. What results is a sub-optimal company culture due to: • Micro-managers • Disconcerted directors at a leadership chokepoint • Executive leaders not leading. Changing how you change is a competitive advantage in both business and life, as your willingness to adapt today will determine your relevance—or obsolescence— tomorrow. As an adaptability coach, I bring my current experience in business consulting as well as the lessons learned from 13 years in military special operations, where decision-making, teamwork, communication and leadership under duress were the expectations, to individuals, team, and organizations to help them become better.
Jeff Boss, The Adaptability Coach


The learning’s that Jeff shares from his SEAL days are lessons that are easily transferable to business and to life in general.  We immediately implemented After Action Reviews (AARs) into our business process and a “Better not Best” attitude into our team culture.

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.

Having the daunting responsibility of raising a boy to manhood as a sole custodial female parent since my son was a year and a half old taught me the importance of placing my son around role models whose daily and instinctive actions would inspire and mold my son. Jeff Boss is one of these individuals.

I have known Jeff for over (20) years and since he was young, everyone who came in contact with him knew he would be a leader in whatever field he chose. Fortunately for all of us, he chose the military and he did not disappoint.  (more…)
