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 go change this world!
In today’s episode, listeners better understand Game Changers’ host, Jeff Newkirk, who is interviewed by returning guest Stacy Harris. Jeff shares that he is celebrating 35 years with his wife, Diane, and has three children. Stacy finds that Jeff is good at celebrating the success of others, which means he is not often talking about his success. He began his business in 2019 after many years in the corporate world. He was the CFO of financial management and the primary caregiver for his aging father. After Jeff’s father passed away, he and his family moved from Illinois to Texas, and he started his business. He shares his continuous love of working with people, helping them grow their businesses, and watching their communication and leadership skills evolve.
Then, Jeff shares the three elements that make up his favorite client-consultant relationship. This client must seek assistance, be receptive to ideas, and display an alignment of values and beliefs. This client could be a new business or someone who has been in business for a long time but is ready to reach the next level in their career. As a Don Maxwell Certified Coach and Consultant, what makes Jeff so passionate about leadership is the lack of leadership displayed in our country. Many factors and characteristics come into play in a strong leader. Jeff explains that being a good, strong, and effective leader begins with having a good value structure, knowing the difference between right and wrong, and prioritizing serving over being served. Jeff’s advice for listeners is to surround yourself with people who make you feel better and challenge you to be the best possible version of yourself.
Jeff shares that when he closes each podcast with “Today was a great day, and tomorrow will be even better”, he truly believes it, but it is up to us to make that happen. His professional goals for the coming years include continuing his business and helping people. Jeff lights up at the idea of being able to help others realize their full potential. Jeff is involved with several local non-profits outside his clientele, including Hands of Justice, the Dispute Resolution Center, and the Kiwanis Club. Before wrapping up, Jeff identifies faith's role in his life. Every morning, he starts his day off on the right foot by writing down the top three things he is grateful for. He also pays special attention to making sure his daily decisions are based on his core values, of which faith is one. Finally, he shares what he hopes his legacy will be and the overall impact he hopes the podcast has on the world.
