After seeing Jason speak I had to share him with my organization.

After seeing Jason speak I had to share him with my organization. Both his workshop and keynote on engagement received some of the highest feedback scores I’ve seen. One participant wrote, ’Wonderful presentation and relevant content. I left feeling empowered. And filled with creative ideas‘. As a speaker Jason has it all: credibility, creativity and great content!

Felica Hazuka One Source, The Background Check Company
We are energized from our experience!

One Source has no intention of resting on our laurels. We want to keep growing and in order to do that effectively our team members have to grow continuously. We met our last set of 5 year goals and in planning the next 5 wanted to objectively reflect on what we could be doing better? Differently? Knowing we want to be the best in our industry, we decided to start by evaluating how we could become the best place to work. Working with Jason allowed us a no-nonsense view to hone in our strengths and opportunities, gave us fresh perspective and added guidance to help affirm the path to ensure we meet our next set of goals. We are energized from our experience!

Your guidance was practical and worthwhile.

Jason, we had another great response to the training. We are on our second round of One-on-one’s with our Department Heads and they are proving to be very beneficial. I know many of our Department Heads have been having one-on-one’s with their staff. Effective communication is always a work in progress, as you know, but the feedback I have received is that your guidance was practical and worthwhile.
