Jonathan Raymond

Speech Topics

Gone are the days when people came to work for paychecks and promotions. The most talented employees are looking for leaders who engage with them personally. In this daylong experiential workshop, Jonathan will introduce the core concepts of Good Authority: How to Become the Leader Your Team is Waiting For and give you audience actionable takeaways on how to show up in real-time with your employees in a way that’s vulnerable transparent, and results-oriented at the same time.



Unconscious Bias can be a barrier to accomplishing your mission. Understanding how the brain categorizes and digests information – in a way that can result in bad judgments and business decisions – is central to leverage diversity. Insights from this workshop will enable your team to integrate diverse knowledge, experience, and perspectives, and optimize its potential.



Why do top-down culture change projects fail, even though they’re led by smart and well-intentioned leaders? Jonathan will walk your audience through the limits of traditional approaches to culture change and offer a new perspective for holding each person on the team accountable for their part in the culture change project.


The most frustrating thing for employees is to not know where they stand with their boss. With very little training available, most managers give feedback too late and without the context people need to own change for themselves. In this keynote presentation or half-day workshop, we’ll focus on developing your accountability skills — using the Accountability Dial to role-play what great feedback looks like in real-time.
