Thank you for your interest. I work with leaders who are committed to their own growth and to their people. They care deeply for the humans they lead and make an impact that includes but outlasts KPI's.
With over 20 years in the leadership domain, I've succeeded and failed. I understand the weight of tough decisions and the strain of high-stress environments. My unique blend of education and experience have equipped me to serve you well.
My leadership framework was shaped by my Army service. That can sound like "rigid hierarchy," but I watched the Army shift from a top-down process to an agile, bottom-up one. I learned countless lessons in empowerment, decentralized operations, risk management, culture, and teamwork.
After graduating West Point with a psychology degree, I completed Ranger School, where I later instructed. I led in combat in both Afghanistan and Iraq. In Iraq, we engaged in high-stakes negotiation and change management as we built relationships with tribal leaders and re-established governance, law enforcement, and basic services for the people of Eastern Ramadi.
After the Army, I worked on projects on decision-making, ethics, culture, and professional identity. I began teaching seminars and coaching hundreds of leaders using personality assessments. I used my GI Bill to obtain a Masters degree in Counseling at a seminary. And I started my own business.
My core identity is follower of Jesus - I'm amazed at God's love for me! I'm blessed with an amazing wife and three wonderful children. I grew up near Boston and we still root for their teams.
I've served executives, senior military leaders, not-for-profit boards, emerging leaders, and leader teams in industries like logistics, software, finance, police, construction, medicine and engineering. They would say I met them where they were in their leader journey and became an ally, sounding board, and truth-teller.
What's on your mind? Let's set up a call.

Jamey was a great coach during a very difficult time I faced with a direct report. My company secured him to help see if we could work through differences. Through initial Zoom meetings and eventually an in-person two-day session (between the 3 of us), we were able to create a new path forward with shared understanding. He continued to encourage me and was open and honest with feedback. His experience with Hogan Assessments was also very important to us getting back on track and we now have an open relationship that allows us to dialogue early on areas that would have produced tension prior to his interventions. I am truly grateful for his help during this extremely challenging time in my career. And, I suspect, my direct report is grateful that it worked!Michelle
If you've landed here and are reading this review, then it's probably safe to say that you're in the market for a coach. If you're looking for someone who will answer all your questions, lead you where you want to go, and just generally figure it all out for you and present you the answers all tied-up with a nice neat bow, then I have to tell you: You are not looking for a coach and especially not one as ridiculously good as Jamey. IF, on the other hand, you're ready to WORK and you want someone who will see past the walls you've built to avoid dealing with the issues that are holding you back from being the leader you want to be, someone who will steadfastly hold up a mirror to help you see and understand your thought processes and behaviors, who wont back down as you flinch from the unvarnished view of your own sometimes painful imperfections while also not judging you, then Jamey is your guy. Only in a very small handful of leaders whom Ive had the immense privilege of working with in the past have I ever seen this combination of intense compassion and almost ruthless incisiveness. The really crazy part though is that Jamey will not give you The Answers. In fact, he most likely will not answer any of your questions (prepare yourself for that). But somehow he finds a way to reframe your questions, turn them this way and that, shine the light here, then a bit over there until, if you're working at it, you'll have these exquisitely painful yet transformative epiphanies that will turn your world upside down in the best way possible. I could go on and on about how much Jamey's coaching has helped me transform my life in all areas (leadership isn't something we leave at the office), but the best way to understand it is to experience it for yourself. Run, don't walk.Deena C
Our experience with Outsider Consulting was transformative for our business. The data, insights, experience and coaching that Jamey injected into our team was instrumental in helping our growing business navigate challenges when it mattered most. Outsider's unique approach impacted more than just senior management/ leadership. Jamey reached into the ranks of our organization and equipped everyone with practical tools and insight - aligning our team from top to bottom in the most healthy way. Beyond that, Jamey offered insights into our strengths, motivators and blind spots at an individual level that shaped our leadership and company culture indefinitely. The change was visible overnight. The value to our business continues to show itself and provide a return on a daily basis. Outsider shaped how our company approaches everything from client relationships to internal decisions. For a growing business like ours, Outsider is an invaluable and trusted partner.Brad Clark
Outsider Consulting's focus on quantitative and qualitative data and coaching enabled us to transform and grow our new and existing leaders during a time of high-growth and transformation. Over the last few years, I have seen this work out time and time again as they help individuals and teams develop and thrive. This investment and partnership continues and I can't imagine us stopping anytime soon. I can't say in the space allowed how strongly I recommend this company and team.Michael Ross
Jamey has an uncanny ability to distill difficult and complex problems down to something that can be effectively tackled. His tone, demeanor, expertise, and genuine interest in and empathy for his clients makes him the most impactful consultant/coach I have ever worked with. I cannot recommend strongly enough that you work with Jamey if given the opportunity. You and your organization will only be better off for it.George Hamilton
Throughout my 12 years in financial services, I have worked with other executive coaches and while each has had their own merits: no one has the had impact on me personally and professionally that Jamey has. First he truly cares: completely. As such, he becomes invested with you in your development and toward your goal attainment. Second he is an expert on helping you better understand yourself and through this insight understand how you impact others. Jamey has led me to a deep understanding of different drivers I have. While I cant change them all, this awareness has helped me drive greater results and build deeper relationships than I was able to before we began this work. Jamey is also an expert in leadership at many levels. He helped me take this new level of awareness I have gained and put in place actionable real world processes to drive results. Jamey was integral in the fact that we maintained our performance throughout COVID and a VUCA environment which was incredibly stressful while recreating the entire business model.Mike McGurk
Jamey's personal integrity and full-on dediction to excellence in everything he does is apparent in his coaching. He met me where I was and invited me to vulnerability and truth through being authentic and honest, himself; and it's this blend of grace and truth that helped me grow in my work with Jamey. He encouraged me to live beyond who I thought I was, helped me view myself more accurately, and even coached me to become much more comfortable with the person I am in our sessions, alongside honest accountability and carefully asked, thoughtful questions. I appreciate and highly recommend Jamey!Geri DiBona
My coaching experience with Jamey was unique, tailored, and extremely productive. His guidance and coaching allowed me to make great leaps in understanding myself, to better understand and lead others. He helped me develop the tools I required to be better a manager and mentor to my staff, especially as I transitioned into a new, elevated, and much more demanding position. The work was mine, but the guidance was all him. Simply, I am better for my time with Jamey and have a stronger clearer path to success.Ross
Jamey engaged with our large leadership team to help us break down barriers and get to know each other in a way that helped us work better as a team. He uses great tools and assessments to support his engagements. His one-on-one coaching following our group offsite was instrumental in helping us reinforce the concepts we learned as a group. Jamey strikes a balance between empathy and going straight to the heart of an issue. I would highly recommend engaging him for a group or for one-on-one coaching.Molly Smith
Jamey is an insightful and thoughtful coach who uses data tools like leadership assessment with his year of experience to help you propel forward as a leader. I am better, more self aware, and more effective as a leader today because of my work with Jamey. His use of questions and demeanor in which he probes the depth of the issue creates a safe place to be vulnerable and open. Thats where the growth happens! Im so thankful for him.Judy Bethge
I was lucky enough several years to work with a team who used Jamey for professional development. During that time, I began working with Jamey and saw my focus and productivity rise tremendously. When I was hired to lead a team, I brought Jamey on to help develop those staff members as had done for me in the past. He has a way of reaching people and holding them accountable in a non-threatening way. He helps me and my team leverage our strengths and overcome our weaknesses through honest feedback and cooperative goal setting. His presence in my life is largely responsible for my professional promotion as well as my personal growth. He makes me a better professional, a better person and a better parent. I would highly recommend Jamey as a coach for anyone serious about becoming the best version of themselves!Laura King
