    Build Teams that Thrive When Challenges Arise

Take On Challenges as a Team

At Jeff’s engaging speaking and coaching sessions, you’ll get honest laughs, vulnerable stories and inspired wisdom. Your team will learn his keys to performing in high-pressure situations — and start putting them into practice.

As a former NFL quarterback and 25-year veteran helping teams focus on relationships, teamwork and growth, Jeff will help you and your team “huddle up” and learn how to beat the blitzes you are facing today and anticipate the ones you’ll face tomorrow – so you can play offense, instead of defense.

Watch the video (at right) for what you can expect from a “huddle up” with Jeff.

You and your team will take this inspiration to the “field,” with a better understanding of each other’s strengths. You will learn how to invest in your relationships and culture over the long term. And, you’ll leave with a plan to bring these strategies into your everyday life.

In the video above, Jeff unpacks the leadership concept of “LIFT Leadership,” a mindset that helps you to be a transformational leader, and to raise up others who are transformational team members.

Team Building Requires Great Coaching

When you lead a business, you lead a team. And every team leader has experienced a blitz – sudden troubles, complicated problems, even urgent crises.

Do you and your team have an opportunity mindset and positive plan for facing blitzes? NFL teams, great leaders and innovative businesses do. It is a mindset that produces a plan which unleashes a radical model of leadership and teamwork that:

  • Anticipates and seizes challenges as opportunities
  • Refuses to give in to excuse-making and finger-pointing
  • Breaks down silos of isolation and inefficiencies

Imagine the progress, productivity and profits you can achieve because you built a strong and high-achieving team.

This can be your team.

Jeff Kemp is a long-time friend, former quarterback, and teammate with the Seattle Seahawks. Many of the stories Jeff writes about I witnessed and remember vividly! Some painful, others joyful, but all of them instructive and profitable if you can face the blitz!

"Jeff Kemp was a great quarterback and a wonderful student. He was as prepared as any quarterback I have coached to handle the blitz as well as other difficult situations on the field. Now he has taken the lessons he learned on the field and applied them to life. This book is a must-read for all of us. Tests and trials are a part of the human condition; no one is immune to the challenges of facing adversity. My hope is that, by reading this book, we all may be better equipped to deal with tough situations and emerge stronger and wiser from the experience.”

Jeff is a man of deep faith, love, and leadership. I have tremendous admiration for Jeff and his approach to living a complete and healthy life. He’s as prepared to face the blitz as well as anyone I know–and I’m not talking about just when he was an NFL quarterback. Read, learn, and apply. Valuable lessons for life’s greatest challenges.

Facing the Blitz is not for spectators. It’s for any of us on the field of reality, in the game of life. We want purpose from our pain, gain from our loss, and miracles from our mess. We want to face reality, grow relationships, and win as a team. Jesus told us we’d face troubles, and He showed us the way. This book shines the light on the way of hope and growth, and will make a positive impact on other people.
