Jason W. Womack, MEd, MA sees the world differently. He doesn’t deny there are 24 hours in the day, but he defies low expectations for what can be accomplished in that time.

Jason is, above all, a teacher, but his teaching takes many forms: international speaker, productivity coach, Get Momentum program founder, and author of the business development books: Your Best Just Got Better: Work Smarter, Think Bigger, Make More, (Wiley, 2012) and The Promise Doctrine: A System for Consistently Delivering on Your Promises (2010). Jason shows that working longer hours doesn’t have to be your only choice to increase your productivity and performance. He teaches practical solutions to everyday workflow that will free you up to focus on your bigger leadership goals and projects. He provides practical methods to maximize tools, systems, and processes to achieve quality work/life balance. He has worked with leaders and executives for over 16 years in the business, military and higher education sectors. His focus on creating ideas that matter and implementing solutions are changing the way leaders impact productivity and create environments where sustainable productivity is the norm.

Goman SeminarCollaboration has become an essential ingredient for organizational survival and success. But “silo mentality” and knowledge hoarding behaviors are wasting this kind of collective brainpower. Today’s organizations exist in an increasingly complex and ever-shifting ocean of change. As a result, leaders need to rely more than ever on the intelligence and resourcefulness of their staff. And it’s not just corporate profits that suffer when collaboration is low: the workforce loses something too. Individuals lose the opportunity to work in the kind of inclusive environment that energizes teams, releases creativity and makes working together both productive and joyful.

As more and more organizations move toward a collaborative culture, a new leadership model is emerging – one that replaces command and control with trust and inclusion. The leader’s new role is to encourage team members to see themselves as valued contributors, to help them build their knowledge base and expand their personal networks, and to motivate them to offer their ideas and perspectives in service of a common goal. Collaborative leaders understand how to create an environment in which people choose to participate and contribute. Inspiring, interactive and energizing, this session will give you the insight and skills to build collaborative relationships within your team and throughout the organization.

– Communication from “lean” to “rich”

Dr. Austins New Book:

Unquestioned Brilliance

Unquestioned Brilliance: All leaders must walk a fine line between creating focus and questioning conventional wisdom, between confidence in their ability and unrealistic overconfidence, and between the demands of fast action and a clear-eyed assessment of the situation. Unquestioned brilliance gets in the way of this balance. It is a fundamental leadership trap.
