A Note from Jason:

“Climbing the highest mountains in the world I learned how teams either come together, or fall apart, during adversity. As a musician, I toured the world and learned that all voices have value if you listen. While studying psychology, I learned all of us have Human Experiences beyond the workplace, and some of it is not pretty. As a Fortune 100 executive, I learned that strategy, process, technology, and shared expectations are essential to aligning people and creating company success. And as an entrepreneur, I learned that balancing personal routines and passion with people and their individual purpose is the single most powerful driver to collective success. My business, my passion, and my experiences have led me to my purpose: I help business leaders pull the thread that inspires their team and invigorates their culture to achieve breakthrough results.”

Jason is a graduate of Western Michigan University, with a degree in Behavioral Psychology and holds an MBA in Strategi Planning from Davenport University.

  • The Heart of Leadership – Accidental Cultures strip organizations of their potential. Create flourishing engagement by aligning purpose, connectedness, and strategy.

  • Mountain Mover – Success is defined by the realization of value, not a deliverable. Like climbing a summit, “Return Home Safely” is the only goal. (You’ll have to hear the story!)

  • Unleash Your P.O.W.E.R. (Personally Optimized Work & Energy Routine) – Amplify Human Potential, empower people naturally, and equip the organization to be its best.

  • Get a Seat at the Table – Success tactics to get your voice heard by emphasizing alignment, framing support data, and effectively influencing decision-makers.

  • The Rise of Strategic HR – Move from compliance and policy to a strategic business driver. Engage the workforce to build a Performance Culture and “Walk Through Walls”.

  • The “Art & Science” of Workspace – Using scientifically-backed data to determine on-site, hybrid, and virtual work, improve productivity, engage people, and deliver ROI.


"If you want a seat at the table, stop asking for it. Be strategic, deliver ROI and claim your position of influence."
