How I Became A Life Coach
I am a trainer, coach, psychotherapist and writer. For more than 25 years I have advised people on how to improve their working relationships and enhance the quality of their lives. I’ve provided professional training on improving relationships, conflict management and related topics. I write a lot of books that contain essential ‘how to’ information for solving relationship problems. My books are clearly written, highly readable, and filled with credible information and guidance.
My lessons will give you new insights into those ‘impossible’ situations that cause so much anguish, stress and ther. I am a Solution Focused therapist offering brief and often single-session therapy. I have built a reputation for engaging workshops on Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Single Session Therapy, and have recently started to put my courses online.
I’m a Certified Coach
“Never before has leading with Authenticity, Integrity, and Respect been more important to our companies, our communities, and our culture”
- Jeff Deckman
“As the CEO of a small business, I realized the importance of getting of early stage management counseling and leadership development if I wanted to grow. Jeffrey’s professionalism, strategic thinking and experience helped me unleash hidden capabilities already in my company and help me accelerate our growth.”
You cannot find anyone better person to help you than Jeff Deckman. His practical business advice and leadership development skills are outstanding. Over many years, Jeff is the only adviser that I have felt comfortable recommending.
Jeff is a natural facilitator and transformational leadership coach. With his insightfulness, guidance and encouragement, he was able to build a rapport with me that quickly turned into a trusted relationship. He taught me how to manage a difficult situation and led me to work toward a common goal, where we achieved a successful outcome for all. I admire Jeff and highly recommend him as a coach and mentor.”
Having worked with Jeff on projects for over 10 years there are two things that are critical to know. First, ANYTIME I have a vital business issue that requires I resolve complex or competing dynamics amongst key individuals or teams, I immediately call Jeff! Second, and I state this from many practical experiences working side-by-side, Jeff will ensure your people work more effectively together, achieving outcomes that they may not have thought were possible while also being mindful of C-Suite necessities – such as the impact on your bottom line.
I have worked with Jeff for over 20 years. He is one of the best strategic thinkers I have ever known. His ability to pinpoint the core issues, work viable and robust solutions around them and communicate effectively to all the stakeholders is invaluable to leaders challenged to succeed in today’s high stakes environments.
I have worked with Jeff on many occasions – and have always been impressed by his ability to quickly understand people. I have witnessed him use this skill, combined with his keen talent for organizational design and strategic thinking, to not only transform organizations but the people in them to maximize performance, morale and profits.
