If you’re looking to create not just an event, but an experience people won’t be able to stop talking about, look no further.
A New York City dad, husband, and former SEC and mega-firm lawyer turned award-winning author, serial entrepreneur and expert in applied personal development and human potential, Jonathan has founded a number of transformational wellness-companies, taught everything from yoga and mindfulness to entrepreneurship and innovation, and led workshops, events and retreats around the world for thousands.
His newest book, How to Live a Good Life: Soulful Stories, Surprising Science and Practical Wisdom, was a USA Today bestseller, and serves as an operating manual for a life well-lived. His prior book, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel For Brilliance, was named #1 Personal Development Book of the year by 800-CEO-READ.
In addition, Jonathan currently leads mission-driven media and education venture, Good Life Project®, and is the executive producer and host of the Good Life Project podcast, an audio juggernaut that is consistently ranked as one of the top podcasts in the world with more than 1,000,000 downloads/month and large global audience. The Wall Street Journal recently hailed it one of the best self-development podcasts, and The Guardian featured it in their Top-25 Episodes of the Year line-up.
On the education side, Fields and his Good Life Project team produce events, trainings and retreats with the mission of empowering conscious business and better lives, and run a renowned annual adult summer camp, hosting more than 400 people at a 130-acre sleep-away camp, where attendees from around the world live, learn, play and connect for 3 ½ transformational days.
Jonathan has been featured widely in the media, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, FastCompany, Inc., Entrepreneur, USA Today, People, O Magazine, Vogue, Elle, Yoga Journal, SELF, Allure and thousands of other places that sound cool, but don’t impress his daughter all that much.
Jonathan in Action:
EXQUISITE ATTENTION: The Hidden Leadership, Sales and Innovation Super-Skill
We’re told that great leadership, creativity and sales are about grit, intelligence, skill and communication. Those things matter, but they’re also all perpetually constrained by a hidden “X-Factor” that, once learned and harnessed, unlocks a wellspring of potential and becomes a powerful catalyst for growth in nearly every area of business and life.
What is it? Exquisite Attention, the ability to cultivate an on-demand, hyper-focused, deeply generative and generous state of awareness, then cast it toward a person, team or population in an authentic way. Think of it as a zone of attention so captivating and empowering, so “exquisite,” that it unlocks not only your own potential, but also inspires those who come under its spell to create, follow and partner on an entirely different level.
As a leader, it inspires trust, loyalty and empowers possibility, creativity and action. As a sales executive, it cultivates the confidence, rapport and openness needed to move people to committed action. As an innovator or creative professional, it unlocks a wellspring of purer, more meaningful input into your process, allowing for next-level solutions and innovations. As a founder or entrepreneur, whose job it is to lead, innovate, set the visions and sell it, it is a powerful tool for growth on every level
When you learn to cultivate Exquisite Attention, you gain the capacity to lead, create and sell, to inspire others to undertake things they never thought possible and create jaw-dropping outcomes that would have otherwise seemed impossible.
In this story-meets science, deep-dive into the world of the Attention Alchemist, award-winning author and founder, Jonathan Fields, reveals a powerful, step-by-step framework to cultivate Exquisite Attention. You’ll learn:
- The 1 Meta-Skill that lays the foundation for Exquisite Attention
- The 5 Critical Lenses that fan the flames of Exquisite Attention, and
- The 3 Observation Hacks that turbo-charge Exquisite Attention.
Warning Label: Users of Exquisite Attention may also experience deeper, more loving personal relationships, richer interactions with everyone they meet, more opportunity in all parts of live, abundant creativity and breakthrough ideas, and a persistent appreciation of everyone and everything around them. Use with caution if you seek to live in a stifled, hermetic, curmudgeonly state.
PRIMED FOR GROWTH: Turning Disruptive Change Into Fuel For Possibility.
Disruption is the new black. The pace of change is quickening. Rapidly-shifting, high-stakes uncertainty has become the norm, and it’s never going away. And, that’s not a bad thing….IF…you know how to harness the power of change, rather than get pummeled by it.
There is no such thing as disruptive change without possibility. Problem is, while this very environment is a goldmine for innovation, evolution and growth, it also holds equal potential to tear apart people and culture. On a personal level, our brains are wired to melt-down in the face of high-stakes disruptive change. Unequipped with the skills needed to transform this experience into positive fuel for growth, we feel only pain and run from it, rather that embrace and even seek it in the name progress.
What if you could change this wiring? What if you could equip yourself with a simple, yet powerful mindset, workflow and environment shifts that would empower you to not only survive, but thrive in the face of disruptive change and even harness it for creation and growth?
Jonathan Fields literally “wrote the book” on this process — UNCERTAINTY: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel For Brilliance. 800-CEO-READ hailed it as the #1 Personal Development book of the year. In this powerful, interactive presentation, participants will learn to reframe change, uncertainty and disruption as fuel of growth, innovation and possibility, then cultivate the core mindset skills and shifts in environment needed to flourish in the face of change.
BUILT TO LIVE: Don’t Just Build a Living, Build a Life!
Something odd happens when we reach adulthood. We shift from building an extraordinary life to doing whatever is needed to earn a living. All too often this leaves us, years down the road, profoundly unfulfilled on both fronts.
Whether you’re a leader, founder, entrepreneur, employee, professional or creative, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can re-craft your living and life to deliver not just revenue, accomplishment and income (though, of course these matter), but also purpose, meaning, peace-of-mind, possibility and potential.
In this engaging presentation, How to Live a Good Life author, Jonathan Fields, offers a simple, yet powerful, science-based approach to “filling your Good Life Buckets” to becoming more mindful, present and intentional in your life and reconnect with meaning, joy, people and purpose. He teaches you how to not just build a living, but a life.

What event organizers say:
“We were so pleased when you agreed to speak to our associates, but it wasn’t until we heard your presentation that we realized how fortunate we were to have you kick off our 2017 Strategy Session. We wanted this session to set the tone for the year, re-charging and inspiring our managers, and challenging them to work in new, creative ways – and you delivered and then some! Feedback from attendees has been incredibly positive, with comments not only about how valuable your advice was, but also that your tips seemed practical and actionable. Thank you for taking the time to understand our goals for this session and crafting a presentation that so perfectly achieved our desired results. We hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.” – Ronald A. Redmon, Jr., Capital One
“Jonathan came to Charlotte and filled the hearts and minds of our community with perspective-shifting, soul-searching wisdom and insights. The room teemed with hundreds of eager souls (you should have seen our wait list), all there to hear him speak. And each and every one of them went along for the exhilarating ride, because they knew they were in the hands of a master—someone who delivers deep value while being at once authentic, vulnerable, disarming, engaging, challenging, and damn hilarious. Let me put it this way…and I mean this literally: lives were changed that morning.” – Matt Olin, Host, CreativeMornings/Charlotte
“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
“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
