“Jason is a dynamic speaker that has a true understanding of what drives employee engagement. Relationships are at the center of everything we do as leaders. Jason will challenge conventional management strategies and will get your team to think differently about how they approach work. Work is no longer a contract, it’s all about the relationship.”

S.W., Sr. Director PayPal Customer Service

“Jason did an excellent job and was just the right person for what we needed. He really got through to our people and everyone walked away with thing(s) of value. We have plans to continue leadership development throughout the year to build from what Jason started.

Jason did a great job of getting people to think deeper about why people are not engaged and the importance of the relationship building piece of it through the exercises he had us do. I think there were some pretty hard hitting ‘a ha’ moments. I really don’t think he needs to improve on anything. He did great!”

K.N., Human Resources Manager, Wegner CPAs
