Jason Lauritsen is transforming management. As a keynote speaker, trainer, and author, he liberates managers from outdated and inhumane practices to cultivate human potential at work and improve people’s lives.

Jason’s advice and teachings are informed by decades of experience as an entrepreneur, corporate executive, and employee engagement researcher. His insights have been described as a “secret weapon” by leaders who strive to create a more engaging and human work experience for their people.

He’s known for his authentic and vulnerable storytelling that challenges you to see things differently. It’s nearly impossible to come away from an interaction with Jason without having your perspective on management changed.

His passion for fixing management likely started with his very first (and very awkward) supervisory job on a corn detasseling crew when he was twelve years old. From there, his relentless curiosity about human behavior and a series of terrible job experiences over the following decades galvanized his commitment to find a better way.

His experience ranges from startup CEO to Fortune 1000 executive. He also spent several years leading the Best Places to Work program for an HR technology company, where he gained deep insight into some of the best workplaces in the world.

“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.”

“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!”
