INFLUENCE + IMPACT
i²: Eye Squared
Jason mission is to help you intentionally increase your influence and have a more significant impact in the lives of those around you.
It was the first part of my second year as principal of the middle school and I found myself hiding in a portable classroom, lights out, during the middle of a regular school day.
I realized that I was leading through my title & not using the principles and practices of developing influence.
I vowed right then and there to make it my mission to learn, practice and teach the principles of influence and I want to help you!
7 Practices that make me different
I listen very carefully to understand your desires and customize my content to make sure that it fits your audience. With four components of influence and over 35 tools, I'm sure we can provide top value to your audience.
I believe that we (the people) are the greatest common factor in all challenges. Therefore, I focus my speaking and training on the development of the person: building a great sense of integrity, working on relationships, communication, emotional intelligence, and adding value to others.
I use my 15 years of educational background in schools to keep my sessions engaging and interactive for all participants.
The concepts and principles that I teach can be applied immediately - and I never leave an event without committing people to apply them in a personal way.
I am passionate, hard-working and an eternal optimist, meaning that I will always be 100% prepared for your event, that I will bring passion, and that I have the firm belief that everyone can grow, learn and achieve their dreams.
Investing in the tools and strategies that I teach results in a stronger team, a more positive culture, better employee retention, and a significant increase in productivity.
I love to have a great time and bring fun and humor to all that I do.
