influence + impact 

=i²: Eye Squared

Jason Hunt's mission is to help you intentionally increase your influence and have a more significant impact in the lives of those around you. 
leadership, frustration, growth

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 challenges.  I use my experience and the resources from the number one leadership development organization in the world to put together plans to help you solve your challenges. 

I believe that we (the people) are the greatest common factor in all challenges.  Therefore, I focus my 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 the trainings engaging and interactive for all participants.

The concepts and principles that I teach can be applied immediately - and I never leave a meeting 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 be 100% prepared for the trainings, that I will bring passion to you/your team and that I have the firm belief that everyone can grow, learn and achieve their dreams. 

Investing in my leadership training results in a stronger team, a more positive culture of belief in each other, 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.
