Forging Leaders

forging leaders is a leadership development firm

I HELP CLIENTS BECOME MORE INTENTIONAL, EFFECTIVE LEADERS.

A lot of people think that leadership is something you are either born with or not. That’s not true. Leadership is a learnable skill, like playing guitar, or open-water swimming. And just like anybody can learn to play La Bamba, or swim from Alcatraz, anybody can learn to become a remarkable leader if they’re willing to do the work.

I give each client the clarity, strategy, and accountability they need to become a better leader in their business and their life. If you could use some of that, Forging Leaders might be right for you.

FORGING LEADERS WAS FORMED IN 2009 IN RESPONSE TO MY OWN DESIRE TO BECOME A BETTER LEADER AND HELP OTHERS DO THE SAME.

My guiding principle is that “Everything is a leadership issue.”

This idea drives the work we do and how we live our lives. I know that if somebody is frustrated, discouraged, stressed out, or unfulfilled, it’s on them to make the necessary changes to start seeing different results. Nobody else is going to swoop in and save you; but you can save yourself. However, it can often be really tough to see what changes you should make; or that change is even possible. That’s where I come in. I am a student of leadership, and I have distance from your situation. I have an objective perspective, and am not afraid to tell you the truth.

I’ve also studied psychology, social economics, behavioral economics, and communication. I know how to help you get clarity around what you want and what you need to do in order to get it. I also know how to hold you accountable in a way that will help you break through the walls that have held you back until now.

I can:

  • help people build stronger relationships.
  • help people change long-held habits.
  • help people change their lives.

There is nothing more satisfying than watching someone finally overcome a struggle that has kept them stuck, maybe for years. I also love helping clients figure out solutions to really difficult problems, especially people problems.

I’ve been involved in wrestling or mixed martial arts in some capacity since I was in high school. In fact, I went to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo on a full-ride wrestling scholarship. That’s where I met my wife; we got married in 2001. No kids yet, but ask me again in a year.

I’m fascinated by human psychology. I love studying how people make decisions, and why some people are able to overcome all odds and find success while others get distracted or discouraged and settle for something less. A big part of my work as a coach is applying what I’ve learned in my study of behavioral economics, social economics, and psychology. Some of my favorite books on these topics are Decisive, by the Heath brothers, Drive, by Dan Pink, and The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield.

I grew up without a dad in the house. My mom raised me and my younger brother mostly on her own. When I was 11, she enrolled me in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. I got matched up with a Big Brother named Jonathan. Jonathan made a big impact on me, so about ten years ago, I decided to become a Big Brother for some other kid. That kid, Jeremy, is now 19 years and is going away to college this year.

Last year, I swam Alcatraz to raise money for an organization called Shoulder To Shoulder. They provide male mentors to fatherless inner-city kids in the Sacramento area. In April of 2015, I went through the training to become a mentor myself. So, now I have a Shoulder To Shoulder mentee. His name is Jonathan. Full-circle.

I believe that our purpose in life is tied to our biggest personal struggle. So for me, growing up without a dad or a male role model, that struggle was leadership. I see the work I’m doing through Forging Leaders as a way to redeem all of the tough things I went through and all the failures I had while I was finding my way.

I believe that my purpose in life is to show others that fear doesn’t have to hold them back from the life they want.

If you could use a coach to help you become a more intentional leader and live a more remarkable life, don’t hesitate to reach out.

I’M JEREMIAH MILLER.

I’ve been a leadership coach since 2009. In March of 2010, I took the leap and quit my job to do this full time.

I love the work. If I had enough money that I didn’t have to work another day in my life, I would still do this.
