coaching, training & keynotes


I believe too much time and money is wasted on ideas that don’t work. The world, driven by continuously improving technology, is changing too fast for us to reliably predict what will work. Today’s leaders must inspire and collaborate, not micromanage, to drive agility and innovation in their orgs.

Humility and learning are in short supply. To improve that, I teach executives and teams — through remote advising & coaching, workshops, keynotes, & books — to focus on their customers, learn from mistakes and create an agile culture that continuously improves their products and services and the way they work.

I am the co-author of Sense and Respond, Lean UX and Lean vs Agile vs Design Thinking. My most recent book is called Forever Employable: How to stop looking for work and let your next job find you.

“Jeff Gothelf is a true agility expert: a great teacher, storyteller and consultant. He worked with our entire top and middle management to evolve agility thinking in our organization. He provided the ground for improved cross-functional collaboration and outcome orientation.”

Nicole Gerhardt, Chief Human Resources Officer, Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG



“The engagement with Jeff was a valuable lens on the transformational journey that product teams have to undertake. Roadmaps, OKR setting through the organisation, failing fast, and value of retrospectives are all lessons we need to incorporate on a daily basis. Jeff is a pleasure to listen to and his words of advice reverberate days after the workshop. I would definitely do this again.”
