Strategy & Leadership Alignment

I design and facilitate meetings and retreats that resolve conflicts, generate a clear vision, define common goals, brainstorm possibilities, and create action plans to resolve issues. The conversations bring leaders together to clarify what they are committed to as a team, and result in a group inspired, dedicated, and prepared to achieve a common vision.

With backgrounds in both business and psychology, and 10+ years of experience in training and facilitation, I use a wide variety of facilitation techniques to generate a dialogue that moves the team forward through challenging issues.

Whether it’s developing the vision and mission, creating consensus on the strategy, or making key decisions, I design and facilitate executive retreats and meetings that will generate momentum to achieve the organization’s goals. The shared understanding created at the executive level will create the foundation so that all the organization’s resources can be directed to achieve the most important business goals.

    “Jason struck a healthy balance helping our executive team stay focused on the key issues while also fostering creativity and exploration where needed. The strategic frameworks he introduced helped us gain perspective, address our priorities, and align behind a common vision. The result was an energizing and very productive executive retreat.”


    –Michael Leppitsch, CEO, PowerCatalyst

    “Prior to our retreat, I did not know the best strategy to continue the growth of our company. When I asked Jason to facilitate our leadership retreat, I really didn’t understand the value that he would create for us. His facilitation helped us better understand our business strategy, agree on the systems and structures that we needed to put in place, and create a road map for our next steps. As a result, the leadership team is aligned, energized, and more on track than ever before.”

    –Garrison Cohen, VP, Authentic World Media.

    “As CEO of a company with very specific business challenges, I was astounded with how quickly and intuitively Jason honed in on our greatest opportunity for growth and expansion. Jason facilitated an effective process, provided direction, and helped us manage misalignment and unspoken conflict. He is truly an expert in both people skills and business know-how.”

    –Bryan Bayer, CEO, AMP
