WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Testimonials about Moore Leadership

"Jeff redefined competition for our program by helping us evaluate how we practice and engage our opponents.  He assisted us in discovering the strengths and weaknesses of our staff and student-athletes and gave us tools to improve our performance on the court.  One area that separated Jeff from other consultants is his consistent check-ins with the coaches and players.  He has challenged me in several areas, making me a better coach, and our team a better program."

Chris Willis
Head Volleyball Coach Davidson College

"Jeff Moore is just what our team has needed to continue our competitive development. Immediately after Jeff's initial visit we had a very successful tour to Argentina that challenged us to live, play and grow far outside of our comfort zone. During this trip we realized that the Strive Together Spirit Jeff challenged us to embrace was the cornerstone we could rely on in the most challenging circumstances. We grew closer as a team and our play improved significantly. Jeff's high level coaching experience gives practical credence to his teaching. I have also enjoyed and been impressed with Jeff's follow up communication and urging to continue to practice the different techniques he introduced us to."

Mike Noonan
Clemson Men's Soccer, 2016 National Coach of the Year

"In October I listened to Jeff Moore speak for the first time. I have never heard anyone articulate principles I believe in the way he did that day. Jeff understands the value of competition, defining it in clear and inspiring language within the context of the Latin origin, ‘to strive together.' He explains how competition can be a critical for platform for development when people are driven by a purpose that transcends winning. Listening to him was an education, confirming what I have always dedicated my life to and introducing me to excellent ideas for improving the way I do things now."

Anson Dorrance
22 time National Champion Coach for the University of North Carolina, 1991 World Champion Coach for the USA

"I have become a better coach since working with Jeff. He has equipped me and my staff with valuable tools to focus on with our team leaders. He put forth intense effort to see what our team needed and did a great job tailoring his work around that. What I appreciate most is his following up. He never fails to communicate and holds me accountable despite my busy schedule!"

Genny Volpe
Head Coach Rice Volleyball

"We have benefited greatly from our Athletic Department’s consulting agreement with Jeff Moore. He has become a wonderful mentor to me as well as the other coaches and administrators at Davidson. Jeff presented to our team, observed practices, and met with team leaders 1 on 1. Jeff’s focus is cultivating a strong sense of Self and Team. He challenges athletes to move out of their comfort zones to tackle difficult problems head on and to proactively communicate with teammates and coaches.  Our athletes took his Striver Quotient Assessment and we used principles drawn from it to select captains."

Matt Spear
Head Men’s Soccer Coach, Davidson College

"Jeff's model for cultivating competitive leaders works!  I not only took the Striver Quotient Assessment myself, but also brought Jeff in to work with my entire executive team.  Through his coaching process we have strengthened our competitive drive to make our company better and stronger.  Thanks to Jeff, my team has a better understanding of how they operate individually, with their fellow executives and with their team. His work offers invaluable one-on-one coaching. I would absolutely recommend this program for any CEO and company wanting to compete in their market and c-suite."

Phil Wilson
General Manager, Lower Colorado River Authority

"Jeff Moore’s extensive experience building champions is motivating and inspiring. His insight and advice on Striving Together is applicable to any organization and has deeply resonated with my clients, partners and providers."

David Burgeson
Strategic Partner Manager, Microcorp

"Our improbable run to an NCAA Championship this year started with a visit from Jeff. He challenged our athletes not to be satisfied with simply "working hard" and to immerse themselves in the process of getting better by pushing each other relentlessly every day in practice. And over time he helped me understand how to cultivate buy-in to this in my own voice."

Geoff McDonald
Vanderbilt

"Jeff’s assessment for our team using the Strivership Quotient and his follow up via individual meetings has really changed the tone of our practices this year.  The team is always looking for ways to compete with one another and taking to heart the ability to push one another every chance they get.  We are excited to see how this shift into a constant competitive mode will positively impact our team in the Spring!"

Hillary Fratzke
William & Mary Lacrosse

"Jeff spoke to MBC and did a FANTASTIC job on the subjects of leadership and culture. I found the talk to be very timely, passionate, entertaining, and hope filling. I was even more impressed when my members came up to me afterward wondering "where did you find this guy" and some going so far as to say it was the best talk they had heard in a long time. Hire Jeff if your group wants to learn a thing or two about great leadership and culture."

Lamar Romero
Own Local, Vice President Strategy and Development

"I'm not dealing with the huge expense of replacing people and productivity is way up. I used the SQ Assessment to hire for my sales staff. The assessment was accurate and helped us identify the right individuals to join our team."

Juan Martinez
Yellow Cheetah, LLC

"Many, many members sought me out to say how much they enjoyed and were inspired by what you had to say. You touched our lives in a meaningful way! Thank you so much for your very thought provoking presentation. We deeply appreciate your willingness to share your time with us."

Louise Brown
Cameron University, UT Lamp

"Jeff Moore’s striver quotient model is an effective way of developing better competitors through purpose driven execution. Jeff analysis and ability to communicate this model has already transformed our players and the way they compete on a daily basis. Since his speech and analysis with our team we have had 2 players win their first ever national championship. Jeff has been instrumental in helping our players get out of their comfort zone and compete for a purpose.
"

Brian Kalbas
Women's Tennis Coach, University of North Carolina

"I found Jeff Moore’s perspective on leadership disturbing.  Before hearing Jeff, I thought winning was everything.  That if you could be an A+ student, a winner, results focused that you would be well on the road to success.  Jeff's presentation disrupted  all that causing a complete paradigm shift that is taking me from be a sometimes winner to a forever champion."

Darrick W. Eugene
Attorney

"Jeff Moore blew my mind, he opened my eyes to a completely different way to lead and motivate. I cannot recommend him enough."

Elaine Garza
CEO, Giant Noise

"I was blown away by Jeff's presentation. If you are looking for a "top 10 list" or a compelling mission statement to magically improve yourself, your team and your business, Jeff is not your guy. If, however, you want ideas to help your organization create and reinforce winning daily habits and strength through competition, you need to know him.

Drawing on his many years of success as a coach in the ultra-competitive world of college sports, Jeff helps executives build sustainable, process-driven teams. He proved many times building championship collegiate teams, that winning players often come from "off the radar" of the experts and winning teams buy in to their system every single day!"

Cuatro Groos
Health Insurance and Employee Benefits Specialists

"My team's time with Jeff can only be described as a motivating and inspiring weekend with a master coach. We are responding well to his point that competing at the highest possible level will require us to become comfortable with the uncomfortable, the unknown and the insecure - a life changing and empowering message."

Paul Wardlaw
Brown University

"Jeff Moore’s extensive experience building champions is motivating and inspiring. His insight and advice on Striving Together is applicable to any organization and has deeply resonated with my clients, partners and providers."

David Burgeson

"Jeff offers unique insight on how to find the right people as well as how to motivate them. My most important takeaways:

  1. Purpose drives process, which drives results.
  2. The best performers aren't goal driven, they're purpose driven.

I've seen the impact of this message on all of us who heard the speech. The excitement and enthusiasm it has generated is incredible."

Leo Welder
Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer, Zilker Ventures, LLC

"Jeff's story of youthful enthusiasm, opportunity, disappointment, enlightenment, commitment, team work, and ultimately success that had the room transfixed! I received great feedback after he spoke. I would recommend Jeff as a speaker for any organization that is interested in transformation and growth to build a culture of winning."

Michael Wyszkowski
Sr. Manager, Global Customer Reporting Solutions, Dell Inc.

"Coach Moore's material should empower growth-minded leaders to find the best people to drive their company to the top. As our culture evolves to more collaborative work environments, companies need to ensure they are carefully choosing winners that can perform individually and in complex teams. The coach's approach will help companies find these valuable people."

Mark Hood
Vice President at Telecom Recovery

"The Striver Quotient is an essential tool for any organization in the 21st century. Jeff Moore challenges leaders to think differently about fit and talent when building a high performing team. Jeff envisions "competition" as the highest form of collaboration, enabling teams to strive together to continually respond to change in our transformative world.

"

Dr. Brett Jacobsen
Head of School, Mt. Vernon Presbyterian Atlanta, Georgia

Elaine Garza
CEO, Giant Noise

"Jeff Moore is changing the landscape regarding what it takes to perform at an optimal level.  He has spent his adult life teaching and coaching people how to compete.  Jeff has developed a system that truly emphasizes the process of what it takes to become your very best. He is a brilliant mind who has packaged his concepts to help coaches and business leaders improve and grow. I am certain that you will think and prepare differently once you work with Jeff."

Michael Center
University of Texas Men's Tennis Coach

Chris Willis
Head Volleyball Coach Davidson College

"Jeff Moore recently spoke to our Rotary Club about his observations regarding the concept of “winning” .  His insights about the entire idea of what it means to “win” or achieve something and how some groups stop at the goal line and others see the goal line as a marker toward greater collaboration and achievement definitely shifted my thinking.  His style is lively, warm, insightful and non- threatening – what a great natural speaker!"

Laraine Lasdon
Laraine Lasdon and Associates, Inc.

"Jeff's provocative presentation to our faculty and coaches got the year off to a great start. His emphasis on the difference between "strivers" and "arrivers" is exactly on point, and his encouragement to tread into less comfortable territory for greater growth and development is what we need to emphasize in order to stay focused on the big picture."

Byron C. Hulsey
Head of School, Randolph School

"Our students were motivated and energized by your message. One student told me that he had goose bumps the entire time you were talking. Another said, you could just see everyone leaning forward in their seats, their whole attention was on the speaker."

Dr. Diane Kneeland
Senior Program Director, College of Natural Science, University of Texas

"Jeff's recent talk about the SQ, and about the chasm between "strivers" and "arrivers" in many organizations, was fascinating and illuminating. His talk resonated powerfully with students in my Management class. His passionate message has sparked lively conversation and reflection among my students, none of whom want to be 'arrivers.' Organizations across the spectrum can benefit from taking seriously how and why people are motivated (or not) to do what they do! Jeff's model and message can set any organization on track to make this happen."

Andrew Jones, Ph.D.
Dept. of Management Texas State University & SHIFT Workforce

" I don't remember a presentation so well received! I think you really hit the mark. You put a whole new spin on leadership and what it means to motivate. "

Bill Gordon

"Jeff did a great job of inspiring our faculty and staff with his presentation on Arrivers vs. Strivers at our opening in-service. I was thoroughly impressed with his ability to delineate between the most important skills that our students will need to be successful in the 21st century workplace. His presentation challenged our community to take a close look at how we prepare our students to be successful in a very competitive global society. I would recommend Jeff for any group that is interested in developing purpose driven people. "

"Extremely inspiring and applicable to anything you want to do in life!

Very empowering. Pleasant to listen to!

The presentation was a strong motivator. A lot of good ideas were given along with truths about how the future could be. Anecdotal stories were helpful in setting the presentation in reality.

So motivational. Get him for the athletic teams!

Loved it! Very enjoyable and informative.

This was great. Very interesting and motivating.

A very good speaker!"

"Coach Moore's talk gave me goosebumps! His presentation was inspiring and instilled a sense of nostalgia for me. Having been a former Division I athlete I knew the truth in what he spoke. He really understands the art of motivation and its common thread between sport and profession."

Alex Hall
Health IT Student, University of Texas

"Kudos to Jeff and this intelligent approach to identifying great people! Building a team without it increases risk without reward. I used to simply focus on IQ & EQ qualities during the hiring process. Whether or not the people were going to have ‘what it takes' always seemed to be a roll of the dice. Striver Quotient (SQ) is the single most important indice to measure. It makes the difference between good and great! "

Rayner Smith
Glide Design

"Jeff Moore inspired our players to dig deep and find another level as competitors.  His program honed our players' self awareness and their desire to find a way to compete in every situation.  I highly recommend working with Jeff if you want to increase the winning environment at practice and improve your players' ability to constantly strive.  His work is especially critical for female student athletes."

Keely McDonald
Women's Lacrosse Coach, Brown University

"Jeff inspires teachers to create a powerful learning environment by focusing on problem solving and perseverance. This was the message our teachers heard and it supports what they hope to create in the classrooman environment of learning for the sake of learning. Jeff also helped our parents understand the value of development for growth, over recognition for achievement. Thank you for coming to Randolph Jeff!"

Polly Robb
Middle School Director, Randolph School

"Jeff hit a home run with his presentation at our Bazaarvoice Quarterly Business Review in New York. Words used by our staff to describe him: 'inspirational,' 'motivating,' 'insightful,' 'different,' 'provoking,' and 'authentic!' "

Tony Capasso
Region VP of Sales Brands for Bazaarvoice

"Jeff's powerful message inspired the leadership of our organization to take a step back and re-evaluate our operations. Jeff pushed us to question our past beliefs and helped us to identify strengths that we didn't even know existed. Applying Jeff's principles has helped us work more effectively as a team and raise the standards by which we hold ourselves accountable. Our organization has made more progress in the last two months than it had in the past two years!"

James G. Kaighin, Jr.
CFPFinancial Advisor, Choice Investments 2010 President of the Young Men's Business League

"The work Jeff has done with our department has been instrumental in the development of our student-athletes and our coaching staff. Jeff brings years of championship experience at the highest level and combines it with a business ideology that truly makes his product special. I look forward to my own continued professional growth as an administrator and coach through our work together. I highly recommend his services to individuals and departments attempting to gain a competitive edge."

Anson Dorrance

"Thank you for bringing Mr. Moore to speak to us. It was an experience I never had during my undergraduate years.  

Jeffs talk titled Strivers vs. Arrivers was one of my highlights of this program. He was very engaging and had us hooked on to his words from the moment he began speaking.

A job in the HIT field will be the realest encounter with the real world I have and these simple but powerful messages will help serve as my motivation to succeed.  Thank you for having this speaker!

I especially loved how Jeff was able to adequately explain what competing means. His definition of compete and the mindset that definition creates is one that I believe we all need to adopt as individuals if we are aiming to be extraordinary.

I have no doubt that our entire class and all who would hear Jeff speak in the future would also be challenged to persevere, thrive in an Uncomfort Zone!

My personal favorite quote was Competition is not comfortable...thrive in the Uncomfort Zone. It was good to have my eyes opened as to how I can truly achieve success.

Jeff was able to understand the challenges that my generation faces and how to respond to the challenge.  Having Jeff speak in class was a very positive experience.

Mr. Moore offered interesting insight and had great speaking presence. He had thought provoking concepts that make a lot of sense in the business world.

You could tell from Jeffs voice that he really had a passion for motivating people to do their very best if life. The part I especially appreciated was where he discussed being driven by a purpose that transcends winning. It was very uplifting and a nice wake-up call that we need to be go-getters in this changing world - especially in today's job market."

"Jeff Moore towers above the crowded field of leadership coaches. Good coaches tell you what to do; great coaches like Jeff teach you about what you can become. Even more importantly, he helps you lead your team to unlock their inner ‘striver.’ Jeff’s ‘Striver Quotient’ is one of the few original leadership concepts that I’ve seen in years, and it goes way beyond personality-based coaching methods. Many people can give you advice; few will change your professional life. I can say without a doubt that Jeff made me a better executive, and my company is grateful for it."

John Miri
LCRA Chief Administrative Officer

"Jeff really connected with us. He illustrated his points with amusing and sometimes poignant stories. I am truly impressed by both the range and depth of his experience and skill as a speaker, trainer, mentor, and business coach. Jeff's business understanding and insight is remarkable. He will help any team, leader, or company be better."

Robert (Bob) Roe
Co-Founder and Managing Director, Acuity CxO

"I was amazed and inspired by Jeff's presentation to the Metropolitan Breakfast Club. He talked about the valuable lessons he learned in mid career which enabled him to transform his philosophy and make his teams more competitive.

The most interesting part of Jeff's talk was how he applied lessons from athletics to the world of business. Jeff really brought these lessons home in a more motivational and poignant way than I have ever heard it stated before. I would recommend Jeff as an exciting and electrifying speaker and teacher for any organization."

Jeffrey J. Barnett
Attorney at Law and Marathon Coach

"Maximizing enterprise value requires leaders who transcend traditional management norms. Finding these leaders demands a new and revolutionary approach to assessing a propensity to succeed. I have found that the Striver Quotient fills this need by finding people whose focus is taking the enterprise as a whole to a new level through collaboration and teamwork. With the help of the Striver Quotient, I have identified valuable talent in people where I never before knew it existed. These people put team before self and as a result, not only does the enterprise excel, but each team member enjoys the personal, professional and economic satisfaction that comes from winning. This becomes a contagious, self-fulfilling prophecy that makes others with striver qualities want to join the team. Using the Striver Quotient has been an eye-opening experience for me."

Jon McCain
Athletics Director, St. Stephens Episcopal School

Roberto Aspillaga
Tennis Coach

"Jeff, I was delighted to have the privilege of meeting and hearing you speak at the Torch Leadership Institute last week. Your record achieved while coaching the University of Texas Tennis Team over a span of 23 years is nothing short of spectacular.

Your presentation covered the significant differences in students and your selection process and, I can tell you, it is already helping me in my selection process as I hire new consultants for my firm.  The process you used was a great revelation to me and you are making a difference.  Great job, excellent presentation and results speak much louder than words!  Keep doing what you are doing!"

Jack Walker
Vice President - MEDITECH Practice

"Jeff Moore knows independent schools, competition and success. Our faculty, and our families, loved his message of effort and achievement in our modern climate. Jeffs background as an independent school student, faculty child, and faculty member gives his message instant credibility. We all want a school full of strivers and Jeffs challenge is helping us achieve that goal. "
