Name: Jason Martin
Where were you born and raised?
Born and raised in Ontario Canada
What’s a short story around the biggest transition you’ve faced in life?
Learning that my first child was autistic completely changed my image of what it was going to be like to be a parent. I learned to advocate for my son and to see the world through a very different set of perceptions. I also learned how to deal with well-intentioned, but misinformed “experts” which taught me to trust my own compass. All in all the experience has expanded my empathy and my ability to put myself in someone else’s shoes without judging how well they fit.
What’s the once piece of advice you’d give a younger you?
Turn up the volume on what makes you unique.
Your Personal Why?
To provide productively provocative insights that increase our top performer’s capacity for contribution and compassion.
How does your Why drive you to be a part of the THF Ecosystem?
I love working with elite performers who don’t settle and are willing to do the hard introspective work to be better tomorrow than they are today.
Military Connection or Why do you respect Special Operators?
I have tremendous admiration for the dedication it takes to reach these elite levels, and I resonate with people who can best support the system by working slightly outside of it.
Favorite THF Value, and why?
Make it 10x better. I’m a maximizer which means I like to blow stuff up and put it back together better, faster, stronger, and more efficient. If you want the same, only better, call someone else.
