Did you know it can cost between
Of an employee’s salary to replace that employee?
And this cost rises exponentially the more senior the employees are.
I’m not built on years of management experience.
I’m not a human resource professional.
I’m a leadership practitioner.
I believe in lifelong learning and have a passion for leadership.
Since a young age I have been in environments that required bringing people together. Inspiring and empowering all around to reach a common goal. For some reason, I always gravitated and found myself in these leadership roles.
Although most of my formal leadership training and experience came through being an officer in the Army, I have learned equally as much through other life experiences such as working on a farm as a 15-year-old and working at a fast-food restaurant as I finished high-school. In fact, being a father and a spouse has taught me so much more about leadership than I could have ever imagined. My two wonderful children teach me something new everyday about how to show up, how to care, and how to lead.

What People Are Saying About Impact Leadership
Phil set the tone for our 2 day retreat. His relatable style and depth of lived experienced resonated with the group as was obvious from the numerous call backs to his key points throughout the rest of the retreat. I highly recommend working with Phil Jewell as a high-impact collaborator for your next offsite or retreat.
I was fortunate to be a part of Phil’s workshop around becoming a Purpose Driven Organization, and it was a truly transformative day. He delivered engaging content with interactive activities, providing a fresh perspective that challenged conventional thinking. The workshop was not only insightful but also deeply motivating, leaving us inspired to apply the knowledge in our roles and organization. As an executive leader, I highly recommend Phil for a dynamic and impactful learning experience. His openness and knowledge leads to an unforgettable journey toward growth.
Thank you for the great team session; it absolutely met my expectations. I think you did a great job of holding space with the content and following the group discussion, taking time to unpack the material as it was landing with the team. You stayed in the space of “non-expert” while also demonstrating that you have learned experience as a leader and shared this through story telling vice PowerPoint slides. This was something that resonated with everyone – your real-life experience and what you took from those to enhance your growth as a leader. The reflection exercises were meaningful and tied to this notion of individuals making up a collective, where everyone has a role to play in workplace culture. I feel like this session was a step up from foundational and took as to the next level. THANK YOU!!
After having heard Phil speak myself, I was so impacted by his message that I invited him to speak to the whole leadership team here at Steel Auto Group. He did not disappoint. His messages and storytelling captivated the team; his points resonating clearly with everyone. We were fortunate enough to have some open discussion afterwards, where Phil shared some more of his lessons and beliefs; all of this led to some very thought provoking and honest reflections that will help us grow as a team and navigate the challenges ahead of us. I would highly recommend Phil as a speaker. He is honest, vulnerable, and ‘real/unique’ – he has lived the leadership experiences and not just read about them!

I have been fortunate to hear Phil deliver his keynote speech on two separate occasions; once when I was a leader amongst other leaders, and then subsequently when I invited him to speak to my own team. Both times I left feeling inspired, motivated and engaged to tackle the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Phil is an excellent storyteller, and does a great job at making an emotional connection with his audience. He’s principles and points are highly relevant to any leader and any team, irrelevant of the profession, and there is not doubt that anyone who hears Phil speak will leave inspired and motivated to be the best version of themselves.

His powerful storytelling captivated the audience and I have never seen every single person in the room be as silent and engaged as when Phil was speaking.

His principles are universally relevant to the newest leader as they are to the most seasoned leader, and he will certainly challenge you to think and see leadership through a different lens.
