My Bio!

Jeff Willie is in huge demand as a seminar leader. His participants give him the highest marks as he delivers research based, common sense, practical, and proven strategies that are guaranteed to enhance your teaching techniques and improve your students’ performance.

Leadership Philosophy

Whether you are the leader in your home, your school, your church, or your place of business, leadership is service to mankind, service to calling larger than the person, a service willing to sacrifice your needs for the needs of others. Leadership/professionals accept responsibility for their actions and make no excuses for irresponsibility. Leadership seeks and obtains personal and professional knowledge and skills and continues to enhance their skills in their particular field of study. Leadership cannot add value to others unless they are willing to add value to themselves. Leaders are (1) people focused (2) visionaries (3) fosters a growth mindset environment (4) encourages and rewards risk taking (5) respect and develop a productive relationship with team.

Life and Death are in Your Words

In life, you don’t get what you want, you get what you expect. The key word is “Expectations”. You word choice (verbals), your nonverbals (body language) determines your expectations. What do want out of life, do you want to leave a legacy that you are proud of, a...

How Poverty Produced a Platform

Raising oneself up from extreme poverty is a major challenge for anyone to conquer, but it was Jeff Willie’s revelation at age 19 that would forever change his life. The current Allen, TX resident was born in 1957 as the 10th of 12 children in the East Texas town of...

"I highly recommend this..."

I attended “Lead Like Jesus” workshop facilitated by Professor Jeff Willie. I learned new practical concepts on leadership which has helped me be a better Shepherd Leader of God’s flock. I highly recommend this “Lead Like Jesus” workshop for anyone who’s leading whether it is leading a family, church, school, or an organization. Whomever you are leading the skills are practical and applicable to the success of your operation.

"...you are such a blessing to leaders of all kinds..."

Just a few words of thanks for the outstanding training session that you performed at the Mt. Olive Church of Plano on November 15th, 2017 by Professor Jeff Willie. Our people were so delighted and encouraged from the training. You were able to keep the leaders engaged even on a Wednesday night. I hope you understand that you are such a blessing to leaders of all kinds, especially the body of Christ.

"We were blessed..."

We were blessed to have Bro. Jeff Willie come down and share with local pastors and church leaders in our area back in October 2017. The teaching was practical, powerful and very effective. All of the pastors and leaders were truly blessed and helped by this insightful teaching.  I personally remember leaving the seminar feeling empowered and ready to more effectively carry out my assignment from God. We are already looking forward to his return to our area in the future.

"An eye opener for me..."

I recently attended a Leadership Conference “Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership”

presented by Jeff Willie. An eye opener for me was a simple statement: “Organizations are not limited by its opportunities; organizations are limited by its leaders.” Thank you, Jeff, for making this class assessable in East Texas. I look forward to attending more of your professional development workshops.

"Mr. Willie, you were such an excellent presenter"

The Lead Like Jesus Workshop was absolutely, powerful and transformational.  It provided me an opportunity to grow and learn about myself as a leader.  I left the workshop inspired.  I would highly recommend anyone in a leadership role to attend this workshop.  It gives you so much information about yourself and how to deal with others. Mr. Willie, you were such an excellent presenter.  You kept us involved and there was never a dull moment.  Keep impacting leaders around the country.

"This course has truly increased value to my life"

The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership are inspiring, uplifting, motivating, and challenged me to lead more with a spirit of excellence.  A strong successful leader has influence and power which add value to an organization as well as individuals.   This course has truly increased value to my life.

"It boosted my confidence..."

Upon completion of the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, I can identify the various types of Leadership characteristics that surrounds me.   It boosted my confidence and developed in me a more positive outlook and attitude.

"I am very thankful..."

Dear Professor Jeff,

I am very thankful for the blessing to have you as my leadership coach. You help me to gain new perspective in my leadership development and improve in my work relationships. Last time, after I shared some of the challenges I was facing in my work, you helped me find the words to put things in context and asked questions that led me to reconsider my approach and find strategies to adapt to the context of my situation in a more knowledgeable way. This conversation made me see another area of growth that I needed to work on: communication. I started reading one of the two books you recommended me (“Everyone communicates, few connect’ of John C Maxwell) and it’s been helpful. I am learning to be a servant leader, and add value to people I interact with one day at a time, one step at a time.

"Few people can energize a group..."

Brought Jeff Willie to speak at our annual in-service day to nearly 500 employees. Few people can energize a group of that size and average age of 58 years old! Jeff put energy into the crowd and not only gave them things to think about, but hope for their future. Those 500 employees will go forward and impact the lives of nearly 20,000 student bus riders this Monday morning!  We are off to a great start for the school year ahead and thrilled to have chosen him for this annual day long training event we hold. Highly recommended for your event!

"with 90 at-risk males ..."

I would like to extend a “hearty” thank you to Mr. Jeff Willie for his service and continual willingness to share his expertise and experience with the leaders of tomorrow! I sponsor a very unique class of high school young men and we recently were graced by Mr. Willie’s presence.  During his visit to our campus, he spoke with 90 at-risk males on the topics of leadership, resiliency and strong character.  He did what most speakers have a hard time doing with a young audience; he made the topics relevant and engaging to the students.  He used something as common knowing blood types, to help these young men focus on the mindset they MUST keep throughout all adversity….”BE POSITIVE”.

"You are not a mistake. You are meant to be here. You are a gift."

Good morning Professor Jeff

I’m Ezra Hernandez, Director of Communications for A+ Charter Schools, and one of the photographers at our A+ & Inspired Vision graduation ceremonies. Firstly, let me say just how much I appreciate your being our commencement speaker this year. I have sat through many a commencement speeches for dozens and dozens of other schools (including my own graduations), couldn’t tell you what any of them were even slightly about… but yours is one I’ll be able to quote for years:

 “You are not a mistake. You are meant to be here. You are a gift.”

Your understanding of what our students, and our families, need to hear, over and over, until they believe it, and then a few times more for the times they forget, was delivered in speech-perfection. Your entire speech was phenomenal, and I thank you greatly for sharing it with our scholars.
