Welcome to Game Changers with Jeff Newkirk, where we speak with people who have done something to make this world a better place. It’s simple: inspire, educate, and let’s change this world!

On today’s episode, Jeff welcomes returning guest Terry Weaver. To switch things up a bit, today, Terry will be conducting the interview so we can get to know more about Jeff. To begin, he shares that they have been working together as accountability partners since the beginning of this year when Jeff was at one of the toughest points of his life. Jeff has a Master of Business Administration and a Doctorate whose dissertation focused on studying management principles. He has over 30 years of experience running massive companies, made it to the VP of a major healthcare company, and has also been an athlete.

Kicking off his story, Jeff shares that he grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. His father was a disciplinarian who was also very loving and compassionate and served as Jeff’s mentor from an early age. His high school football coach was another major influence on him during his adolescence. He shares the story of losing his two best friends in a car accident at 13 years old and how that experience affected his life. He learned that the experience will always stick with him, so the most important thing is learning how to deal with it.

Having spent so much time in the corporate environment, Jeff now has a strong passion for leadership. Leading and management, he explains, are not synonymous terms. Some of the best leaders Jeff has seen have been in non-management positions but have impacted a group of people toward positive progress in different ways. This kind of leadership is something we need more than ever right now in every facet of our lives. His call to action for listeners is to get involved and be vocal in any way they can. Then, he unpacks the idea that sometimes it’s okay to offend other people to make progress. He offers the best example of good corporate leadership he saw in his career, which taught him the importance of communication.

The conversation shifts to discussing the next step in Jeff’s career in a business startup. Although his corporate career allowed him financial freedom, it wasn’t until he had the chance to mentor someone else that he fulfilled his “why.” Now, Jeff’s career is centered around helping others succeed. Before wrapping up, hear about what keeps Jeff going every morning. He truly believes that the best is yet to come for us if we genuinely believe that is the case. Finally, he shares his Christian faith's significance in finding accountability.
