About The Concept Coach
Who's behind the curtain?
Jeffrey Tobin is the Founder of The Concept Coach, an executive coaching company that works primarily with inspired executives and entrepreneurs. He is considered by many to be a “compass” for people who want to discover their biggest futures. His proprietary tools and unique educational processes provide the necessary structure to foster both personal and business growth.
He began working with executives as a nationally recognized writer, speaker and consultant in 1981. Today, people are attracted to Jeffrey because he speaks from experience. He is not only a speaker, teacher and personal coach, but unlike many other speakers, Jeffrey has lived right where his followers live, for over three decades as an entrepreneur. He bought or established four separate businesses including office products retail, office furniture design, sales and installation, a copier sales and service company, and two franchises for Verizon Wireless. Jeffrey doesn’t just talk a good game, he lives in the real business world and he brings his unique perspectives to his audience and to his clients. He recently sold the lot in order to speak full time.
Jeffrey’s myriad of programs and workshop materials provide not only individual breakout sessions, but also offer a continuous, quarterly learning curriculum, networking opportunities, and executive peer groups as well as personal coaching. Most specifically, Jeffrey has developed totally new concepts that enable organizations to overcome the stymied traditional means of attempting to build employee engagement. He helps participants target a new, greater goal. Then, leaders can help to bond themselves – and the entire organization – to the company in a way which reduces turnover and increases engagement. It’s really quite fascinating. And fun!
Best of all, his gifts for story and metaphor not only enchant his audiences, but they also provide his listeners with simple methods that can be implemented back at the office without books, binders or notes. Participants are inspired, and in a sense – trained – to make transformational change almost immediately.
Jeffrey’s real joy is helping people make progress toward both their business and personal goals. His trademarked The Omega Question™ helps individuals discover their deepest and most meaningful goals. All of his other tools, workbooks and learning sessions flow from that initial concept.
Jeffrey has been a regular teacher at the University of Pittsburgh Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence, The ExecuStar academy, and has a blog of hundreds of short essays, soon to be in print. He loves to ride his motorcycle, he taught himself to ride the unicycle, and is otherwise fairly clumsy around the house. Don’t ask. His wife doesn’t understand it either.
Jeffrey is a graduate of Valley Forge Military Academy in Wayne, PA, Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA, and while he has no plans to go into the ministry, he recently received his Master of Theological Studies from the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
