Through years of training and fighting alongside some of the toughest and disciplined warriors of today and seeing their commitment to one another, combined with great leadership, a team can accomplish anything and everything, no matter what adversity lies ahead. Joe loves to see people overcome and succeed at the impossible which is only possible by great leadership and team cohesiveness at every level. That is what makes the Navy SEALs one of the best fighting force in the world today.

CoverDown Consulting channels Joe’s experience in the Navy Seals to take your team to the next level of success in all areas of your life. These character traits are not isolated to just one area but will have rippling effects across your team’s entire life and relationships inside and out of the realm of work. Joe has held multiple leadership positions throughout his career, from training, to combat, too advising senior officers in key positions of command. His vast knowledge, expertise and experience in leadership and team building combined with a no-nonsense approach to teaching and facilitation makes him most qualified to help your team reach peak performance.

Joe has performed and lived by one of the SEAL’s most cornerstone sayings for his entire career and carries that same belief where ever he goes, “You must earn your Trident every day” or translated would mean “You must earn your spot on the Team everyday”

Joe enjoys outdoor activities with family and friends, and is an active Christian serving others wherever and whenever he can. He’s been happily married to his wife Nancy for 30 years and has two daughters.
