Why they're a Crisis Leader:


In the years that I’ve known him, it would be a rare day indeed for Jeff Moster to be out-hustled or indecisive about something.

His leadership qualities are evident in everything he does, whether playing sports, mastering his career, or devoting energy to his family and friends.

Jeff's crisis leadership was baked-in at an early age. For example, experiencing the unexpected loss of a parent at a young age activated Jeff’s enduring resilience and personal leadership, which he has relied on throughout his life.

He personifies my favorite Russian proverb:

"The same hammer that shatters the glass forges the steel."

As you will see, overcoming significant professional challenges also demanded more from Jeff’s resilient personal leadership. At a time when others in his position simply walked away, Jeff’s strong character and purpose prompted him also to lead those around him who were desperately looking for direction.

Though he would like to defy the label of crisis leader, Jeff embodies everything we look for in a leader in times of turmoil: resolve, decisiveness, and courage.
