Jeff Boss      

Former Navy SEAL and Author of "Navigating Chaos"

Jeff Boss enlisted in the Navy after college with a single goal in mind: to become the best in the world at his profession. He enlisted in the Navy in 2000, completed the infamous Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL training in Coronado, CA and reported to east-coast based SEAL Team Four, where he deployed to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

While at SEAL Team Four, Jeff was selected to try out for the Navy’s premier counterterrorism unit: Naval Special Warfare Development Group. It was at DEVGRU where Jeff participated in the most significant Special Operations missions in the history of the U.S. Military, as well as got shot seven times on two different deployments, survived four parachute malfunctions, and attended more funerals than some people can even count. It was these unique experiences that not only shaped his leadership but also compelled him to share his lessons in his first book "Navigating Chaos: How To Find Certainty In Uncertain Situations" and his second book "Managing The Mental Game: How To Think More Effectively, Navigate Uncertainty, And Build Mental Fortitude."

Across 13 years of service at the highest level, Jeff completed eight combat deployments earning him four bronze stars with valor, two purple hearts, six combat action ribbons, and two presidential unit citations, among others.

Jeff left the military in 2013 to apply his knowledge and experiences in the private sector. As a speaker, leadership and team coach, Jeff applies what he learned from the pinnacle of special operations to corporations who are tired of dealing with their own “chaos” and want a tried and tested solution that works.

Jeff is a weekly contributor to Forbes and Entrepreneur on the topics of leadership, adaptability, and elite teams. He holds a Bachelor’s in Spanish, a Master’s of Science in Organizational Leadership, is co-founder of The Adaptability Metric which is a proprietary tool which measures individual disposition toward change, a founding team member of the non-profit SEAL Future Fund, is certified in administering the Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory and EQ-i 2.0 assessments, and serves as a cultural advisor to multiple tech startups.

Jeff currently resides in Washington DC where his only real battle is traffic..
