Jonathan in Action:
The Power of Uncertainty: Turning Fear & Doubt Into Fuel for Brilliance.
Leadership isn’t about what happens when everything is going right, it’s about what happens when we and those we lead are called on to act in the face of great uncertainty, change and adversity. How we handle those moments, the messages we send, the culture we enable and the tools we embrace determine whether any window of uncertainty and vulnerability will end in disruption and destruction or growth and innovation.
Jonathan Fields has literally “written the book” on cultivating the mindset and leadership skills that turn uncertainty, exposure and vulnerability into possibility, purpose and potential. In this story-meets-science presentation, drawing upon his award-winning book, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel for Brilliance (#1 Personal Development book of the year by 800-CEO-READ), Fields offers powerful strategies and “human technologies” designed to help transform uncertainty and disruption into possibility, innovation and growth.
UNBUSY: The Power of Intention in an Autopilot World
We live in a world where pace without purpose has taken over our lives. Every day is spent breathlessly and mindlessly reacting to a series of tasks, agendas and stories on a near autopilot basis. Forget getting ahead, we’re just doing everything we can not to fall too far behind. At work, in relationships, with our health and our lives. And, it’s killing us.
This moving keynote presentation, drawing from Jonathan’s bestselling book, How to Live a Good Life, is your intervention. It is an inciting incident that calls us to break out of the autopilot, reactive busyness matrix and reconnect with intention, agency and mindful action. It reveals the deeper “invisible pathology” that drives reactive busyness, exposes the true impact, then offers a set of real-world, practical steps to reclaim a fierce sense of agency, purpose and focus in all that we do.
The 5 Be’s: Hidden Drivers that Fuel Purpose and Possibility
What are the hidden drivers that exist across nearly every successful person? Not just in business, but in relationships, health, spirituality, and life? Jonathan Fields has been on a quest spanning more than a decade to learn at the feet of many of the world’s “embodied masters.” This, in fact, has become his mission, and sharing what he’s learned has become his vocation. In this powerful story-meet-science presentation, he draws from the lessons of his studies and travels and his most recent book, How to Live a Good Life, to share five common patterns that serve as powerful unlock keys for purpose and possibility in all parts of life.
The Innovation Biome™
Innovation is an ecosystem or “biome. Like any natural biome, it can never fully thrive unless three critical elements are not just present, but embodied: Ideation Methodology, Innovation Culture and Individual Optimization. The first has been getting a lot of attention. The second is given lip-service, but rarely cultivated. The third isn’t even on most company’s radars. Without all three, innovation cannot sustain beyond a momentary flicker that is quickly snuffer out. When all elements are embraced, though, the Innovation Biome™ becomes complete and genius begins to blossom on an entirely different level.

“If you are thinking of hiring Jonathan as a speaker, I have just two words for you. DO IT. Jonathan spoke at our FreedymFest event. And even though the multi-day event had almost 30 speakers, his session was, by far, given the highest rating. It wasn’t even close. In fact, 2 years later, I still get emails from attendees saying how Jonathan’s talk changed their lives. And it’s not just the “content”… it’s the WAY he delivers it. His passion. His humor. And his ability to speak with authority, and yet, with such humility is quite rare.” – Ryan Lee, FREEDYM
“In six years of producing the World Domination Summit (WDS), Jonathan Fields is the only speaker to address our entire community twice. He first served as our closing keynote speaker during year one, and last year we were thrilled when he accepted an invitation to return as the opening keynote speaker. In other years he has also led Academies (half-day workshops) that quickly became the highest attended throughout the history of the event. Jonathan has a genuinely unique way of communicating with groups of people from a stage that make them feel as if they were talking one-on-one. If you get the chance to bring him to your event, don’t hesitate!” – Chris Guillebeau, Word Domination Summit
“Jonathan was granted one of the four coveted speaking slots at the Invitational Consumer Health Summit, a private gathering attended by leading founders and personalities. He used the occasion to debut new marketing theory which held the room spellbound, and also prompted fundamental alterations to many of the attending businesses in the days following. With hindsight of several years, Jonathan’s presentation has proved both memorable and prophetic.” – Michael Fishman, Consumer Health Summit
“Thanks to you for a fantastic presentation. It was informative, inspiring and entertaining. The perfect kick off for our career development event. And thank you for being so accessible and flexible along the way. The simulcast was important to reach all of our staff and you pulled it off beautifully.” -Barbara Fitzsimmons, Razorfish
“This guy came in as a favor, at the last minute, and still knocked it out of the park! Jonathan knows how to connect and engage with an audience, and better yet, inspire them to action. Nobody left the room when Jonathan spoke; he drew them in immediately with great storytelling and his passion for the topic” – Terry Starbucker, SOBEvents co-founder “Our attendees loved him; he got great speaker reviews and positive feedback…
“Jonathan Fields spoke to a room of mostly accountants. His experience and charismatic personality kept the audience interested. He talk was relevant and compelling. I would love to hear him speak again.” -Kerri Stern, Hospitality and Technical Professionals Meeting April 2011
“I was blown away by the conference as a whole, but still feeling a little bit lost by the end of it all. Jonathan came in with not only a soothing presence that was measured and gentle, but also he provided concrete strategies for how to cope with the future. He gave reasons and explanations, and referred to research, but without getting overly technical or obscure. All of this was delivered smoothly and coherently to a tired audience, and yet I believe most were tuned-in and attentive. I’ve also had a good experience in follow up, where I was able to tweet Jonathan to ask about a meditation app that he described during his talk, and he took the time to answer my tweet and direct me to the correct item. He walks the talk. I was glad to hear what he had to say, and feel extremely fortunate to have been present. – Jackie Shelley · FrontRow Antics
