Jason Lauritsen Biography

Jason Lauritsen is transforming management. As a keynote speaker, trainer, and author, he liberates managers from outdated and inhumane practices to cultivate human potential at work and improve people’s lives.

Lauritsen’s advice and teachings are informed by decades of experience as an entrepreneur, corporate executive, and employee engagement researcher. His insights have been described as a “secret weapon” by leaders who strive to create a more engaging and human work experience for their people.

He’s known for his authentic and vulnerable storytelling that challenges you to see things differently. It’s nearly impossible to come away from an interaction with Lauritsen without having your perspective on management changed.

His passion for fixing management likely started with his very first (and very awkward) supervisory job on a corn detasseling crew when he was twelve years old. From there, his relentless curiosity about human behavior and a series of terrible job experiences over the following decades galvanized his commitment to find a better way.

His experience ranges from startup CEO to Fortune 1000 executive. He also spent several years leading the Best Places to Work program for an HR technology company, where he gained deep insight into some of the best workplaces in the world.

Lauritsen is the author of two books, Unlocking High Performance: How to use performance management to engage and empower employees to reach their full potential and Social Gravity: Harnessing the Natural Laws of Relationships

Speaking Topics
  • Leading through Compassion in the Future of Work

    The future of work arrived ahead of schedule in 2020. Amidst the disruption of a global pandemic, it was revealed that the old way of working is no longer relevant. Our imperative was to quickly reinvent when, where, and how work happens. We are never going back to the old way. This new landscape of work requires managers and leaders to be more engaged with their people than ever before. Today and in the future, the managers who can best support employee well-being will be those who thrive.

    At the heart of well-being is ensuring your people feel cared about as a person–not just for their work output. This can feel uncomfortable and isn’t a natural skill for most of us. Plus, it’s not something found in most management training programs. But it can be learned, and it starts with developing compassion. When managers bring compassion to their jobs, they develop a deeper understanding of what their people truly need to offer their full potential at work.

  • The Relationship Comes First: Discovering the True Path to Employee Engagement

    Work has been defined in many ways over the years: a contract, a transaction, a value exchange between a worker and their employer. Many organizations even refer to employees as “Human Capital” and treat them like assets to be managed and optimized. Is it any wonder that employee engagement continues to drop as employees dream of finding a better place to work? It turns out that we don’t like to be treated like an investment to be maximized.

    If we hope to get the best of our people, it starts with understanding what work is for employees–a relationship. Research has shown that employees crave the same things from work that they do from any important relationships in their lives: appreciation, acceptance, communication, commitment, and support. In this session, we will explore how managers and leaders can invite employees to be their best at work by making work feel more like a healthy relationship.

  • Unlocking High Performance: How to Engage and Empower Employees to Reach Their Full Potential

    Can you engage employees and maximize performance at the same time? Isn’t having fun at work counter-productive? Why do I need to recognize employees for simply doing their job? If you wrestle with these questions, you aren’t alone. You’re struggling with the disconnect between an outdated model of management and a new world of work. The time for top down, compliance-based management is over. To attract, retain and unleash great talent for your organization, a new approach is required.

    In this powerful keynote, you will learn how successful organizations are unleashing the full potential of their employees by creating a more “human-friendly” work experience. Jason will reveal how you can more effectively manage performance by making work feel more like a healthy relationship than an unpleasant obligation. You’ll leave the experience inspired, informed and equipped with a new approach for unlocking higher performance that employees will love.

  • Being the Best: The Surprising Secret to Building a Best Place to Work

    Becoming a “Best Place to Work” is at the top of many organization’s priority lists. To attract and keep the best talent requires fostering an engaging culture where people want to work. But, building an extraordinary workplace is easier said than done. In fact, it’s hard to even know where to start.

    This dynamic session will reveal research-based insights into the what, why and how of building and sustaining a “Best Place to Work” for your employees. And (spoiler alert) it’s not about installing ping pong tables or sleep pods.

  • Hacking Work: Big Change Starts with Thinking Small

    Driving innovation can feel overwhelming. Just the idea of innovation is intimidating—as if the big breakthrough is somehow always just beyond our reach. This is fueled by some common misunderstandings about how innovation works. The truth: innovation isn’t about big changes. And it doesn’t even require a big budget, a big title, or any permission. The changes that matter don’t happen overnight, they are the result of a lot of small, meaningful changes over time. Computer programmers and hackers have known this for years and we’ve reaped the technological rewards.

    Applying insights from the computer hacking culture, Jason will teach you a simple but incredibly powerful process for hacking your management and work processes to fuel greater engagement and performance. This will help you and your team to innovate and make progress in your work, one small change at a time. Regardless of your title or experience, you can make big things happen through a series of smart, small changes (or hacks).
