EVENT ORGANIZERS SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE
IT’S ABOUT MUCH MORE THAN MENTAL HEALTH
LESSONS I’VE LEARNED FROM MY WIFE’S SUICIDE
BETTER MENTAL HEALTH IN MANUFACTURING
Stop telling yourself you don’t have time to deal with your employees’ mental health because you have a business to run. If you believe that, you are selling yourself, your employees and your organization short. The leadership and culture which creates a safe place for people to talk about their mental health issues is the same leadership and culture which creates better business performance. Teams who are honest and care personally about each other outperform their competition. Human connection creates better business outcomes.
Jason is a survivor of his wife’s tragic battle with bipolar disorder, eventual suicide and his decade-long battle with alcohol. He’s learned that sharing the real version of our stories is one of the most powerful ways we can connect with people. He teaches that you can’t outrun grief, no matter how hard you might try. Jason’s mission in life is to inspire people to understand that sharing who we really are is our gift. When we do, we create a safe place for other people to be who they really are. When two authentic people connect with each other the possibilities for creation are limitless.
Manufacturing is tough and requires tough people to make it a success. It’s an intense, physical, 24/7 environment where one mistake can shut down your customers or worse, cause injury or death. Mental health is not talked about openly or often enough. You can change that – today. Your employees face the same challenges and struggles as anyone else and it’s incumbent on you, as a leader, to change the conversation. You’ll be rewarded with healthier, more loyal employees and in the end, better business performance. Better mental health is better business.
YOUR GREATEST STRUGGLE IS YOUR GREATEST POTENTIAL CONTRIBUTION
VULNERABILITY AS A POWERFUL BUSINESS ADVANTAGE
DEEP CONFIDENCE FOR HIGH-PERFORMING LEADERS
Every one us has made mistakes that we’re deathly afraid of other people finding out. We feel guilt or shame about the parts of our lives where we feel like we’re failing or not measuring up. Guess what? Everyone else feels the same way and we’re all waiting for someone to go first. Imagine if the source of your greatest struggle is actually the source of your greatest potential contribution to this world. You can not only liberate yourself but you can give other people the greatest gift of all – the gift of your authentic self. Jason will show you how to go first.
The most effective leaders care for their people as human beings before employees or roles. When you do you will form a team out of a collection of individuals. When people know you care about them and their families as much as the work they do, they will strive to perform at their best. When they feel comfortable to talk to you about their lives, they will feel comfortable to talk to you about their tasks. Create an environment of 100% accountability and 100% honesty and your team will produce results that are 100% exceptional.
Deep confidence is developed by consciously practicing self-awareness, self-mastery and living a life of service. It manifests itself in a feeling of lightheartedness for the game of life. Confidence is one of the most influential motivators and regulators in your every day life. Becoming deeply-confident will free you to grow personally and professionally. Jason teaches the strategies and tools to fearlessly assess who we are, move forward confidently and deploy all our capabilities in the service of others. Become the leader you were meant to be by being the person you truly are.
