“Julie is more than a presenter; she is a connector.”

— GAYE ANNE MCDONALD, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, MAINE ADMINISTRATORS OF SERVICES FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES

We live in a time when the mental health of our people is needing more attention and support than ever. Current research shows that over half of employees struggle with anxiety and/or depression. What’s the most stressful part of their jobs? 75% of the participants in a recent study answered that it’s interacting with their immediate boss.

With a world-wide pandemic and increased divisiveness in our society at large, our people are suffering from the effects of isolation. Isolation is the mistress of poor mental health; how do we help our people heal from its effects? By doing exactly the opposite of isolation.

We make connection a top priority in our organizations. We become the kind of leaders our people want to follow anywhere. There has never been a more important time to grow into the kind of leader people know they can count on. People need authentic leaders who can shape a work culture that fosters authenticity, trust, and connection.

Julie Lee will empower your audience with the tools necessary to bring humanity into leadership and to become the kind of leader we all want to follow.

"The Connected Leader"

How to insure your people feel seen, appreciated, and trusted.


The idea that prestige is what people want most from a job is outdated. The priority has become what they need, which is a positive work culture where they feel seen, appreciated, and trusted. How do we become the kind of leader that can foster this kind of authenticity? Targeting specific skills that foster connection. Creating trust by modeling how to be a genuine team player. Understanding what matters most to our people. The result? We expect innovative ideas and top performance to be at an all-time high as our people thrive in a workplace where they know they belong.

“If you have the chance to work with Julie Lee; I would highly recommend you jump on that chance. We invited Julie to be a part of our annual conference and by all accounts she was spectacular. Her message of empathy and creating connections resonated with our members. Julie has a unique ability to weave the story of tragedy into triumph and connects brilliantly with her audience. We followed up conference by asking Julie to moderate our Board of Directors Retreat which offered our board a unique opportunity to work with Julie in a more intimate way. Again, everybody loved her messaging and connected with Julie. I would highly recommend you consider working with Julie Lee—you will be glad you did!”


-LeeAnn Powell, Executive Director, Utah Recreation & Parks Association


Julie presented for the local IIA (Institute of Internal Auditors) chapter—and it was fantastic. We were looking for a speaker on emotional intelligence, one that would be relevant and insightful. Her presentation fit the bill perfectly. She prepared with little notice and, best of all, tailored the presentation to the niche-group. For me personally, it was a game changing presentation.


-Steve Sokol, Audit Director at Intermountain Healthcare


I wish all trainings could be like Julie's! During these crazy times, she shared this crucial message in an honest way that has left me reflecting even several days later. Julie is 100% genuine, and isn't afraid to be open with her audience as she speaks. Julie would be a standout speaker at any training, conference, or other event! Just listen to her and I think you'll agree!


-KC Lindelof SOX, Internal Controls Senior Accountant at Qualtrics


Julie did a great job presenting to the Salt Lake City Chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors. She was able to relate her content to the group and keep everyone engaged, even in the virtual environment


-Ryan Treglown, Internal Auditor at WCF Insurance


Julie presented at an IIA Chapter training and she delivered a clear message supported by personal stories that were relatable and helped drive her points. There were several key takeaways that I have already been able to implement in my personal and professional relationships. The training was great and I would recommend Julie as a speaker for future events.


-Melissa Currier, CIA, CAMS, Internal Audit Manager at Western Union


I have had the opportunity to work with Julie as she has piloted the I See You program in a couple of our schools this year. Julie is engaging, real, uplifting and practical. Her modules she is using for the adults in our buildings are thoughtful, engaging
