About Me

 

My name is Jason Meucci and I believe in you. I also believe in the power of possibilities. So, I love helping people discover belief in their potential, meaning in their work and purpose in their lives.  My Masters in Organizational Leadership (Gonzaga University), with a concentration in Change, has been a personally transformative experience as I pursue my dream to work in people, culture and leadership development. 

Why do I think of this as my life’s work? Because my mission as a servant leader is to be a catalyst and evangelist for cultures that enable employees to leave work every day and head out into the world feeling better, not broken. 

This website provides an overview of my academic journey, professional experience and personal passions—which, yes, includes believing in the potential of others and doing whatever I can to serve them as they pursue their own possibilities. 

My Personal Vision

To equip the next generation of leaders to build workplace cultures that are people-first, purpose-focused and possibilities-driven. By providing connection, belonging and meaning in everyone’s everyday work, we can move people beyond success to significance—empowering them to be their best selves and enabling them to go out into the world feeling better, not broken.
