HCI Webinar: Developing Technical Experts to become Vulnerable and Successful Organizational Leaders

In this HCI Webinar, Dr. Westover talks with Jeff Harmon about developing technical experts to become vulnerable and successful organizational leaders.

Jeff Harmon ( has over 20 years of experience building relationships to equip and mobilize leaders to achieve their most important goals. He has built his life and career based on two principles: how you lead matters and it’s not about me. Eleven years ago, Jeff was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve condition. The reality is that some who are diagnosed with this condition die. He knows more than almost anyone he has ever met the value of every day. Upon diagnosis, Jeff looked at his mortality in the face and then got the news that he is one of the fortunate ones and the disease will likely not take Jeff’s life. He has a much longer lease on life and lives with the regular reminder of impermanence.

Jeff uses every precious moment of life to fulfill his mission to set leaders ablaze with the mission God has for their lives and fill the giant leadership void that exists in the world. Loving, supporting and challenging them every step of the way. Jeff’s relationship with God is at the center of his life and this forms the values, principles and perspectives on everything he does.

Jeff’s ability to access the strengths and talents of individuals and teams and distill the most complicated, overwhelming concepts into real, actionable steps has enabled him to help leaders to execute plans that produce results while also developing their capacity to lead. Over Jeff’s career, he has either led or facilitated the delivery of over 200,000 hours of strategy in the financial services, information technology, pharmaceutical and non-profit industries.

Jeff is the founder and head coach of Brilliance Within Coaching and Consulting. His client list includes GE, Novartis, BDO, PMI, SHRM, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Fairfax County Government, Alpha Kappa Psi, Morris County Chamber of Commerce and many other companies and associations.

Jeff is author of The Anatomy of a Principled Leader, Become a Better Leader 10 Minutes at a Time, the forthcoming book, The Impact-Driven Leader and has been featured in Inc. and Business News Daily magazines. Jeff resides in northern New Jersey, is husband to Sandy, dad to Maddie and Gloria, pastor in the New Apostolic Church and supporter of several organizations who give vulnerable children the opportunity to flourish.
