Based on his book, The Culturetopia Effect, Jason Young offers a dramatically different approach to creating and sustaining a high performance workplace. His solution is simple, create an organizational culture where employees feel valued and are equipped to do their best work. The goal is to create an environment where continuous learning and development produces high performance and high fulfillment all in the same space. This will result in the desired performance outcomes in communication, collaboration, productivity, profitability, while building trust and respect through positive employee advancement initiatives. The key is to intentionally identify and develop the essential factors that impact performance for any organization: customer focus, leadership “best practices”, employee support and engagement, team productivity and personal accountability. These are elements that truly define organizational culture and that have the greatest impact on results. You will learn the importance of values alignment, relational coordination, appreciating differences, how to use conflict to build relationships and how to personally take ownership of your career. The Culturetopia Effect is a fast paced, fun experience that will challenge participants to take their business to the next level. Jason will provide practical, easy to implement guidance to the key determinants that make a healthy, productive and profitable culture for any group, team or organization.

Featured Speaker:


As a senior level manager at Southwest Airlines, Jason learned the value of a successful workplace culture. During his 10-years with Southwest he was a key driver in developing the company’s innovative training programs for its successful leadership and customer service culture that have become renowned in the business world today. Jason left the airline to launch his own firm focusing on training and development services specializing in leadership, customer service, communication and team productivity. Today, as President of LeadSmart, Inc., Jason shares his vision in developing successful corporate cultures with forward-thinking companies, including IHOP, Coca Cola, Baylor Heart Hospital, Tyson Foods and Starbucks to name a few.
