Leadership Development

Find out why Chevron, the Gap, General Dynamics, and others have Jeff Evans traveling the globe to speak on leadership and transformational change.

Change, leadership, and inspiration. Most people think that you have to be born to lead. The truth is, everyone is born to lead. This secret is in knowing how to tap that part of yourself on command, in any situation. Look for your audience to leave with these things:

  • At least one "ahha" that will be useful from the moment they walk out of the room.
  • An eye-opening adventure that explains many things about relationships - both work and personal - that may have seemed to be complete mysteries before.
  • Simple methods of leadership that apply at the top of the largest corporations as well as in a team in the smallest.


Jeff's message is to leaders in all walks of life. Disconnecting leadership from positional authority, he instead talks about leading as a passion –as inspiration – that actually creates our personal authority to lead. More than anything else leadership is about who we are and how others experience us. Each of has the innate capability to lead through the heart as well as the head. His work will amuse, enthuse, and inspire you to find your highest path.
