About Jeff

I help sales and business executives become the best version of themselves at work and at home.

WHAT I DO: I help high performing professionals scale their business, work fewer hours (with better results) and tap into 30+ years of business wisdom earned from my time in the trenches. I also help teams to be more effective and perform better.

WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT: I have spent over 2,965 hours coaching business professionals, helping them achieve their goals, work more effectively and scale their business as a result.

I’m a certified Gallup Strengths Coach and certified Human Capital Coach.

WHAT OTHERS SAY: "As a small business manager Jeff has really helped me focus on what my plan for the future is and held me accountable to the goals that I have for my organization and employees." - Eric Almquist, Branch Manager, Benchmark Mortgage

"I was working an average of 60 hours a week. Since I began coaching I am currently at 45-50 hours a week. I am able to achieve more in less time." - Jack Emkes, SVP Membership Engagement Retail & Mortgage, Collin Community Credit Union. See Interview with Jack

“Teams led by Mr. Garrett have always performed within the top tier of the organization. This is an individual who leads by example and practices what he preaches." -Ernest Warren, SVP Chief Lending Officer at Credit Union of America

"The one thing we look for in a business coach, besides talent, is someone who is absolutely convinced of what he teaches. We found this in Jeff - talent and a passion for his conviction that decisions based on an understanding our strengths. We invited Jeff in to help our leadership team take the next step in our leadership development efforts. We left the session with a solid action plan." - Cathie Zentner, Regnum Christi Territorial Commission

"Jeff was professional and polished from beginning to end. He listened to and helped clarify expectations for the Gallup StrengthsFinder workshop, sent our team preparatory materials that were helpful, conducted the session with aplomb, and followed up with further resources to help us make the most of the workshop. His insights and comments helped our team to coalesce and work together more effectively for our mission." - Fr. Daniel Brandenburg, RC Education
