Jason A. Hunt  

Author & Leadership Trainer

Jason A Hunt is a dynamic, engaging, and passionate author, speaker, and trainer. During his second year as a principal of a large middle school, Hunt found himself hiding in a portable classroom because he didn't think he could do his "dream job." After realizing that leadership has less to do with processes and much to do with people, Hunt turned around the toxic culture of the school in just over two years by developing personal influence with his staff.

Hunt's messages focus on helping leaders lead through influence rather than title. Being an introvert himself, he has an interesting viewpoint and many unique tools that can help anyone navigate the complicated world of relationships, resulting in less turnover, a stronger organizational culture, and more job satisfaction.

Hunt's first major leadership role was to run a branch of 100 church members in outer Siberia when he was only 19. Since then, he continues to be involved in many leadership positions. He is the founder and CEO of Eye Squared Leadership and he has had the pleasure of working with over 23,000 people in organizations large and small.

Hunt speaks to audiences in many industries, from manufacturing to finance, to project managers, to social services, and he does so over 100 times per year. He is the current president of the National Speakers Association of Minnesota and he was just awarded the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), a distinction that only 17% of professional speakers worldwide hold.

Hunt has a degree in leadership from the University of Minnesota. He is also certified by the John Maxwell Leadership Institute. In 2019 Hunt published his first book, The Other Side. In 2022, he published four more books as a series entitled The Uncommon Leadership series.

Overworked? Stressed out? Too much on your plate? Well, these could be symptoms that you're taking on responsibilities that are not actually yours. Leaders learn how to delegate well and they know how to keep those delegated responsibilities on the backs of their employees. In this message, learn how to effectively empower others, how to create critical thinkers, and how to develop the next bench of leaders all the while earning you more time to focus on the most important things. It's time to mind your monkeys!

Own Your Momentum: Mastering the daily to personal growth

Life can be disappointing - not getting that promotion, KPI's not being met, a dysfunctional team, the business not growing, or maybe you're stuck in a mid-life crisis. Most of us set goals, desiring to get the better things in life, but that actually doesn't work. Success is not based on goals that are met and then forgotten. It is based on your daily habits and actions. In this deeply personal message, learn how to own the momentum of your life and find out what is really possible with you, your team, and your organization.
