Personalized decision coaching to help grow the leaders you need from within your organization

Hi! I'm Jack.

Sitting at the cross-section of problem- solving and human development, decision-making is critical to personal success. But it’s often misunderstood, creating anxiety and contributing to performance issues.

Having conducted thousands of executive interviews as a risk management expert, I found many leaders struggled with making important decisions because they were never given the training or tools for making decisions confidently and at the speed their job requires.

I haven’t just seen this issue. I’ve lived through it.

Early in my career, I was presented with a situation that could have had severe consequences for my client, as well as the firm. It was a critical decision, and I soon realized it was mine alone, as the executives around me struggled with making the final decision.

This revelation shook me to the core, and I felt anxiety wash over me. In that moment, I saw how critical the decision-making process was to my personal and organizational success.

This catalyst has since become The Decision Switch™—a proven methodology and tools that transform how leaders make confident decisions, at the speed their role requires.
