I’ve personally participated in and benefitted tremendously from Jeff’s work in both my personal relationships and business success.

Jeff’s approach and tools have been incredibly meaningful and even transformational for me. A HUGE and heartfelt thank you to Jeff for sharing his work with me as a friend, collaborator and coach. I have not yet adequately conveyed just how important this work has been to my own personal and professional life. I’ve had the opportunity to share in his experiences over the past 18 years. I’ve observed the evolution of Jeff’s teaching, tools, and his intangible magnetic gifts that he shares with others on a daily basis.

The Good Life Index has --on a monthly and yearly basis-- been an invaluable tool for me to aim at and remember what is most important to me, and an essential guide when making life decisions large and small about how to spend my time or what direction to take. I frequently and eagerly look forward to hearing Jeff’s Story Of the Week on Fridays. I also have been learning how to frame and reflect on my own story of the week. The greatest gift I’ve received from this practice is the awareness that how I narrate my own life has a profound effect on my attitude and level of happiness. Life is full of challenges (and opportunities!) and having the ability to create a positive inner dialogue is a greatest blessing. It is a skill that I will always strive to develop further. Thank you Jeff for sharing your work, your stories, and your gifts with me!

DREAMSCHEMING

Many foundations, universities, government agencies, social enterprises and individual philanthropists have underwritten Jeff’s time to work with people they have identified as important to them.

We see our work as helping people get clear about what energizes them the most, what matters most, how they want to grow/change and what they want to accomplish. We help them to think BIGGER but then also be very realistic and practical about setting an objective for the next three months regarding what they can make happen in a short period of time. We share very specific tools to help people not just come up with some abstract vision but with a real plan of action and some tools to build positive momentum in their life. We usually say that whatever difference we might be able to make for a person, we can make in three or perhaps four sessions.

Are You A Good Fit?

Someone wrote us recently and said “based on my work with you, I would say that if a person is asking any of the following five questions, you might be the perfect source of coaching assistance for them:

“Are you at a moment of transition (relationship? Job? Other?)”

“Would you like to get clearer about what you want to do next?”

“Are you trying to decide if it is time to look for another job?”

♦ “Are you feeling stuck?”

♦ “Would you like to go beyond just finding a job to making your life truly extraordinary, even if you do not yet have much money?”

Testimonials

I know a master when I see one.

When I met Jeff Bercuvitz, I knew I could learn something profound. Jeff is not merely a coach, but an example and teacher of living to the fullest, in personal life and work. Jeff has a deep and broad knowledge and experience of all facets of non-profit management and he is tapped into a fundamental energy Source that he manifests through everything he does. He helped me tap into this Source, also.

While previous coaches encouraged me to get clear on a personal mission statement, Jeff went further and taught me how to develop and utilize specific, quantifiable tools that helped me get concrete about what activities I want to spend my time doing and what meaning and experiences in my life I want to create. After Jeff taught me the basic method of his frames and guided me a few times through the process of making decisions using them, I now use them on my own on a daily basis. Following his suggestion, I have also adopted the practice of recording three things for which I am grateful every day.

Working with Jeff helped me realize that I wasn’t really enjoying my job and inspired me to negotiate a new employment agreement that I enjoy much more and in which my talents are unleashed to achieve optimal social impact. My new role has freed my energy to pursue other projects, which I am much more excited about.

Not only do I feel better about every aspect of life, but my numerical measurements show that I am spending more time doing what I love. With prophetic clarity, Jeff put forward a vision of the person I could become that was more ambitious and bold than my own sense of possibility. I finish this period of work with him with stronger confidence in my ability to create the life I truly want.

Jeff has taught me how to be self-nurturing, courageous, and how to honor my creativity in times of transition and uncertainty

I celebrate Jeff for his unwavering commitment to each and every one of us in our ALIGN journey.  I will always be grateful to him for 'showing up,' and teaching me how to 'show up.' Thank you, Jeff!

A door has opened for me.

The past month under your teaching has been a really powerful experience for me. I feel more clarity in my life than I ever felt. The answers are still elusive, but I know the questions.

I want to say that you really are an inspiring soul.

You are one of less than a handful of people I have met in all of the interactions and personal audiences I have had with a variety of stellar folks, that I have sincerely been inspired and energized by.  It is so easy to be jaded, intimidated and therefore negative about all that is challenging about progressive and justice work. To be positive and more importantly to be able to have the gift to instill that positivity, energy, passion & guts into others, is truly fabulous. Thank you for what you do.  And how you do it. Thank you for the incredible change you create, through getting others to get excited about what they do. As a community organizer, activist and socially conscious person, it is refreshing to have someone like you sharing this world.
