"When things are challenging and we’re out of balance, we’re in danger.                                  Not so much from the circumstances, but from our own thoughts."                                                                                                                                                   -Jay Coughlan

Jay Coughlan can help you unlock your potential in a way no other executive coach can.



Jay's authenticity and CEO experience will help you maximize your potential in business and in life.

Ask yourself: What do you want to change? What do you want out of your life? Why don’t you have it now?


Jay is a walking, talking paradox. He is as intense an individual as I’ve ever met, yet compassionate. He is achievement-driven, yet forgiving. He is a polished professional, yet still has the spirit of a street-wise working man. He’s able to put all of this together with a speaking and coaching style that makes everyone in the room want to reach all of their life goals — yet do it while caring for people and never missing what is most important in life. When you sit in the audience, Jay looks straight into your eyes and speaks to your heart, mind, and gut.

Over the better part of two decades, I’ve known Jay as a gifted and loved CEO, incandescent speaker, and a savvy business coach. He’s equal parts Jack Welch, your favorite pastor and Cool Hand Luke. Jay has guided me through a difficult transition in my business with steady pluck, while constantly reminding me the importance of spiritual grounding and balance. His personal story from the depths of despair to Fortune 500 boardrooms not only inspires us but reminds us that no matter what seemingly unforgivably misstep we’ve made in our lives, it can make you stronger.
