Praise for Jason Barger

In the midst of obstacles, delays, and cancellations in business, the way your people respond to challenges will determine your level of success. I hope you’ll join his movement.”
– HOWARD BEHAR, former President, Starbucks International
“Jason is a remarkable speaker with a tremendous amount of energy and dedication to both doing good in the world and helping others become successful. He ï¬nds creative ways to engage everyone around him into working to their ultimate potential. I loved watching him captivate our students with positive reinforcement, humanity, humility, and passion.”
– KAREN RAMOS, Education Abroad Program Manager, University of Cincinnati
“Jason's message was extremely well-received by our students, staff, faculty, and corporate partners who were also present at the event. Jason spoke as the keynote to one of our annual signature events for our students. He tailored his speech to address the theme of our event and was a pleasure to work with.”
– CHRISTIAN BARTELS, Associate Director for Student Life, University of Minnesota
“In the same way Mark Twain considered himself a ‘prodigious noticer,’ Jason Barger takes the obvious things that surround us when we travel through airports and uses them to illustrate profound life truths. Step Back from the Baggage Claim is a delightful little book that will cause you to think thoughts you probably should have been thinking already! Jason does a great job showing us how to ‘travel through life gracefully."
– CHRIS BRADY, New York Times Best-Selling Co-Author of Launching a Leadership Revolution
“To Step Back from the Baggage Claim means to exit the rat race, if only for a moment. The disciplined practice creates the space, a kind of opening that allows us to observe our blind spots, home to our hidden assumptions and taken for granted presuppositions. In the act of ‘stepping back’ we make room for new ways of being and thinking, allowing our best selves and our best leadership to emerge. Jason's presentation to our staff was a hit. He has the genuine ability to be present with others in the moment. Because he 'shows up' 100%, the audience is fully engaged as well. His relatedness as a person embodies the basis of a culture of effective communication.”
- DR. WILEY “CHIP” SOUBA, Dean, Dartmouth Medical School
“Step Back from the Baggage Claim is a must read for anyone interested in excelling at international business. Too often your managers are looking for an elegant solution or for the ‘silver bullet’ to doing business effectively. However, Jason’s book covers the key soft aspects to gaining cooperation in a cross-cultural and cross-national business world. I recommend this book for anyone interested in international business education.”
– P. ROBERTO GARCIA, Ph.D, Professor of International Business and Co-Director of the Supply Chain and Global Management Academy, Indiana University, Kelley School of Business
“Jason’s workshop was the favorite in our professional development series for our staff! We all are still discussing ways we can ‘step back’ in life and in business.”
– VANESSA KUMAR, Weber Associates, Columbus, Ohio
“Barger’s visit to JupiterFIRST Church was a sweeping success. He is a gifted speaker and his message about serving the world is refreshing and transforming. He embodies the wisdom of ‘dropping our swords to pick up our paint brushes’. Great stuff!"
– DR. BARRY JOHNSON, JupiterFIRST Church, Jupiter, Florida
“With changes in the economy and the market, so many people are scrambling to re-invent their brands/businesses. Barger’s advice to ‘let everything grow out of an authentic purpose’...was great advice!”
– A. FOSS, from the ‘Accidental Creative’ discussion on fostering a creative process
“Jason arrived at our church a stranger, and left as a friend and co-traveler on the journey! He effortlessly connected with people at every age and stage of life with his warm personality and relevant message. He taught, led workshops, and preached in worship--all with the same posture of genuine interest in the lives of other people. In short, Jason enriched and strengthened our faith community. As one of our congregants reported to me in an email, ‘I loved hearing Jason Barger on Sunday...thanks for bringing him to WCC! His message was especially appropriate for Type A's (myself included in that group) that sometimes forget to Step Back, Be Available, or Travel Gracefully. I am embarrassed to admit that I frequently fail to do all three, and the airport is a great metaphor for life in that regard.’ I recommend Jason Barger to any church or organization that wants to take a "step back" from their own baggage...and claim a new angle of vision on mission."
– REV. DR. JOHN F. ROSS, Wayzata Community Church, Wayzata, MN
