Practical Skills

+ Radical Self Inquiry

+ Shared Experiences

= Enhanced Leadership + Greater Resilience

This formula is behind all that we do. We’ve designed our offerings to reboot your leadership whether you’re a CEO, founder, c-suite or employee.

We believe that in work is the possibility of the full realization of human potential. Work does not have to destroy us. Work can be the way we achieve our fullest self.

Why Reboot

Reboot is first and foremost a coaching company. We aim to increase the impact of the work by reaching more people.

For it’s really about the work. It’s about making the work more accessible with the launch of a podcast where we can speak with people who might not otherwise be able to be coached. Or by the increase in the frequency and effectiveness of one- and multi-day workshops, discussions, and what we refer to as bootcamps. And through the development of tools and services, like our Peer Groups, that ultimately allow each of our would-be clients to help themselves and each other.

As I often say, there aren’t enough elders, mentors, therapists and coaches in the world to meet the collective need. We have to help ourselves. And, in the end, this is really what Reboot is all about it.

It’s not Jerry 3.0. It’s not a “coaching company.” It’s a platform where we’ll use the existential challenges that arise from our work lives to move more fully into our adult human selves and, thereby, somewhat and some times ease the pain of the vagaries of everyday life.

Our intent, this happy band of open-hearted warriors I’ve collected around me, is to abide by what we teach our clients: to create the company that we want to work for.

We come together not for conventional notions of success but to attempt, as David Whyte says in Crossing the Unknown Sea, “Good work, done well for the right reasons.”

As I often say, there aren’t enough elders, mentors, therapists and coaches in the world to meet the collective need. We have to help ourselves. And, in the end, this is really what Reboot is all about it.

The company we want to work for has values built around transparency and authenticity, around owning our own shadows and cutting the monsters in our heads down to size. It means “full-catastrophe living” as John Kabat-Zinn calls it–that is, mindfully living with the ups and downs of life. It means our full selves showing up at the office. It means, each of us holding the responsibility for creating an environment in which we not only have fun but experiment and try different things. It means holding each other accountable for creating a company whose work, values, and view of itself is dedicated to the proposition that implicit in work is the possibility of the full realization of human potential. Work does not have to destroy us. Work can be the way in which we achieve our fullest self.

If we can embody those values, we’ll show our clients how to do the same. To strive for anything less would be inauthentic.

I often speak of my dedication to the proposition that work should be non-violent to the self, non-violent to the community, and non-violent to the planet. I didn’t want to create Reboot to merely teach that. I wanted to create something that lives that. And, in doing so, live the teachings.

I owe it to my teachers, to the elders and mentors, the allies who have entered, re-entered, or exited my life to live this out. I owe it to my children to test more fully that proposition for I want them to come into their adult lives knowing this is possible.
