Meet Jeff

Speaker… Accelerator… Relationship Builder… Master Storyteller… Chief Inquisitor… Motivator… Story Debunker… Facilitator of Truth

Beginning as a successful lawyer, Jeff first modeled courageous change when he left the corporate law firm where he was a partner to take the leap into entrepreneurship by creating his own law firm.  After building and growing that firm into a northeast Ohio success story (on a foundation of a clear why and a different way of a law firm adding value to its client), Jeff did what few dare to even consider: he left that which he knew and which was successful to go in search of his true calling. For Jeff, getting by or merely succeeding without loving what he does was not acceptable.

Like many entrepreneurs, Jeff’s journey had many twists, turns and yes, stumbles, which Jeff openly shares and speaks on as part of his authentic story telling – the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly. After several years of trying to “fit in” to the traditional corporate and business world, Jeff once again leapt into his life when he founded Think Again!, which has now evolved into The Nischwitz Group. As one colleague said of Jeff, “Jeff is a rare individual with high standards for the organizations and people he works with. If he does not feel the fit, he has the courage to makes changes designed to move him to his true calling and to fan his passions.

The one foundation of everything that Jeff has done the past 15 plus years is what he considers the secret sauce for business and life – the magic of relationships. We all know that relationships drive results, and Jeff has been helping businesses, teams, and people build extraordinary relationships with prospects, clients, team members, and themselves. After launching a Relationship Revolution with strategies and approaches for building genuine and mutually beneficial relationships, Jeff’s personal transformation has led him, his clients, and thousands to a new way of being, leading, and living in the 21st Century.

Often challenging, Jeff Nischwitz is a master inquisitor with the rare ability to ask questions that go beyond the heart of the matter, into the soul of a person and even an organization. So skilled and intuitive are Jeff’s questions, that his seemingly innocent inquiry, “Do you mind if I ask you a question?”, often comes with a warning: Be careful before you say yes, because you may learn, experience, or uncover something that you were not expecting … and perhaps something that you had never seen or known before. This is just one of the many gifts that Jeff brings to the people and organizations that are ready for transformational change.

“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask. … For once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”  ~ Albert Einstein

“VIP was looking to make a radical change in our management approach. We knew we needed assistance but were not looking for a traditional “team building” retreat.

A true paradigm shift occurred during our meeting and there is no better outcome that I could ask for.”  ~ Bethany Friedlander, Chief Operating Officer, VIP Restoration
