After being diagnosed with Crohn's disease and arthritis at a young age, Jason Reid launched Sick with Success® and his career as a professional coach, speaker, and author specializing in the area of chronic illness and employee engagement.
Jason overcame the challenges of Crohn's disease and arthritis to become the head of news and information at a national television network, where he won international awards and dramatically increased employee productivity.
His ability to engage employees with chronic illness motivated him to create Sick with Success®, a company that helps ambitious people with chronic health conditions and the organizations that employ them.
With more than a third of the workforce diagnosed with at least one chronic disease, Jason regularly engages business audiences looking to improve productivity and diversity while simultaneously reducing disability costs. His paradigm-changing book, Thriving in the Age of Chronic Illness, tackles the rapidly evolving nature of employee health problems from the point of view of both the worker and the employer.
Jason's real-world experiences as a manager challenged by illness gives him a unique perspective on how chronic illness affects organizations and their people. He has a B.A. in journalism, is a professionally trained coach, and holds a certificate in organizational leadership from Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California.
Jason writes regularly at his popular blog SickWithSuccess.com. You can follow Jason at facebook.com/sickwithsuccess and on Twitter @sick_w_success.
