Jason Young has been called a “rare breed” when it comes to developing leaders and customer service initiatives. As a former senior-level manager at Southwest Airlines, Young learned the value of a successful workplace culture. During his 10-years with the airline consistently rated No. 1 in customer service and employee satisfaction, he was a key driver in creating and developing the company’s innovative training programs for its successful leadership and customer service culture that have become renowned in the business world today.
Driven by the need to extend his unique insight in leadership development to others outside Southwest, Young separated from the pack in 1998, when he left the airline to launch his own consulting practice to focus on corporate training and development services provider specializing in leadership, customer service and team building. Today, as president of LeadSmart, Inc., Young shares his vision in developing successful corporate cultures and workplace environments with forward-thinking companies, including Starbucks, Radio Shack, Coca Cola and Tyson Foods, to name just a few. He has even returned to his old turf – Southwest Airlines – to extend his knowledge as a corporate training consultant in leadership development area once again. He has even captured his philosophy of creating high performance cultures in his recent books, "Servicetopia" and "The Culturetopia Effect."
Capturing the innovative strategies and tactics he created at Southwest Airlines, Young offers insights and practical information that can be implemented immediately. His keynote presentations and training programs are in demand for audiences of all types – from senior level executives to front line employees. Young’s messages reach to the core of every audience member with his unique style and engaging presentation skills. Participants are treated to a compelling experience that will change the way they view themselves, their customers and the company for which they work.
Culturetopia - The Ultimate High-Performance Workplace
Based on his experience as an insider at famed Southwest Airlines and consultant to dozens of other Fortune 500 companies, Jason Young offers a dramatically different approach to creating and sustaining a high-performance workplace. His solution for companies is to create an organizational culture where employees can do their best work and one that will produce the desired performance outcomes in productivity, profitability, employee retention, and customer satisfaction. The key is intentionally identifying and developing the essential factors that impact performance for any organization: leadership principles, management practices, team alignment, and employee behavior. These are the elements that truly define organizational culture and that have the greatest impact on results.
Servicetopia – The Ultimate Customer Service Experience
In this presentation, Jason Young explains how a company can deliver a transformational service experience — Servicetopia — with each and every customer encounter. What is Servicetopia? Imagine an environment where all employees are aligned with the mission and vision of the company and they go to work committed to providing exceptional service to every customer, both internal and external. Purpose. Passion. Professional. Process. Pizazz. These are the hallmarks of Servicetopia, the behaviors required for delivering exceptional customer service, every day. In this presentation, Jason Young shares how a company can deliver on Servicetopia, where high levels of customer satisfaction and retention are sustained; and where employees derive personal and professional satisfaction from delivering great service and the customer is the beneficiary.
