My name is Jamey Gadoury, and I'm passionate about helping leaders and organizations succeed. As an organizational consultant, I've worked with corporate executives, senior military leaders, law enforcement officers, small business owners, emerging leaders, and entire business units. I've spent the last 20 years studying, practicing, and teaching leadership, and have learned from my successes AND failures. In 2014, I established the sole proprietorship that would become Outsider Consulting, and have since served clients in the Boston, Chicago, and Dallas areas.
My understanding of leadership and organizations has been significantly shaped by my experiences in the Army. Some may hear "rigid hierarchy," but the Army provided me many lessons in empowerment, decentralized operations, ad hoc teams, adaptation, and teamwork. I graduated from West Point and the US Army Ranger School (where I later instructed)- two world-renowned leadership institutions. As an Army officer, I learned from leaders and soldiers of all ranks and ages. I led in combat in both Afghanistan and Iraq. In Ar Ramadi, Iraq, I commanded a rifle company as our task force broke the back of the Al-Qaeda backed insurgency. We then built relationships with tribal leaders and re-established governance, law enforcement, and basic services for the people of Ramadi.
After completing my Army service, I began my career as a leadership consultant and learned much with the Praevius Group. While there, I supported the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic, helping them train and develop numerous tiers of leadership in ethical decision-making and professional identity. I also developed teams at the United States Army Corps of Engineers, serving leaders at all levels of the organization.
My core identity is as a follower of Jesus, and I'm amazed at God's love for me. I'm blessed with an amazing wife, Amy, and we have three bright, energetic children. I'm a native of Boston - we root for all their sports teams! It's been a while, but I love to scuba dive and snowboard. I'm a lifelong learner and am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Counseling.
