Jeff Salz is an advocate of NOT taking the safe, secure and conservative path. With a PhD in cultural anthropology, a Masters in experiential education and 10 years as a highly regarded university professor, Jeff presents a unique perspective on taking risks. For the last 15 years, he has been safely guiding organizations through the turbulent seas of change and facilitating enhanced teamwork in organizations by helping them build 'cultures of authenticity'.

  • Foster innovation by becoming fearless in the face of failure
  • Empower your team by setting a goal higher than Everest

Client Testimonials:
"All agreed that yours was a non-traditional approach that really worked. They appreciated the opportunity for introspection, the thought provoking insight and the critical element of fun. Even weeks later I have seen and heard how you reached their hearts, minds and souls."
-- Stacy Hanley, Senior Project Manager, Motorola Worldwide Human Resources Conference

"Thank you again for the magnificent program that you ran for our group out here in France. The effect on our group was resoundingly positive. In fact my job of running division meetings has been increasingly difficult since that day as you have set the standard for what people want to accomplish out of a group activity. Your energetic delivery of teamwork activities and themes was able to break down our hierarchies so we could truly focus. It has been a remarkable success in allowing our group to become more cohesive.

Participant comments included:
  • In my years with the firm, it rates as the most productive Division Meeting I have participated in. I have also heard similar response from the troops.
  • Leadership, tackling change, balance of life. I don't think I could find anything that could be more meaningful.
  • I've taken part in many "team-building" exercises during my time at Andersen Consulting. This is the first one that I really enjoyed AND found useful and relevant. Well done!
By the end of the day I ended up with a smile I could not control. It was more than great!"
-- Mark Suster, Manager, Andersen Consulting, European Technology Park
