Better Leadership, Better Results: Become a Better Leader, Innovate Better, Make Greater Impact
Develop the mindset, skillset, and toolset to inspire, influence, and lead people and teams more effectively.
Whether you’re leading a team, steering a business, or championing a cause, master leadership to scale your influence and impact.
Hi, I’m JD Meier. I Help Leaders Change the World.
With 25 years of Microsoft experience leading innovation and driving global change, I bring a wealth of experience to empower you to change your game and rise to your potential.
I’ve held leadership roles including head coach for Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s innovation team, director of innovation and sustainability, and director of digital business transformation.
I’ve learned a lot over my years at Microsoft on building world class products, building high performance innovation teams, and scaling impact around the world.
As a strategist, advisor, transformation leader, innovator, and high-performance coach, I’m on a mission to inspire individuals, teams, and leaders to build a better world through better innovation.
Change the World Your Way
To change the world, the best way is to change yourself first.
All things are created twice, first in the mind, then in the world. Your business is a reflection of you.
Inner world, outer results.
Changing the world comes down to changing your world and scaling your ideas through influence and impact.
I’ll help you realize your potential and grow skills so you can scale your influence and impact.
Dream Big, Start Small
Around here, we dream big and make it happen.
Dreaming big is a skill.
As Albert Einstein put it, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
To dream big, you have to practice imagination. And imagination is one of the most powerful tools you have to change anything in business or life.
I’ll teach you how to use your imagination to dream big and make things happen.
Do Sustainability Better: “Good for People, Good for the Planet”
Every business has to reimagine itself to be Good for People, Good for the Planet.
I use “Good for People, Good for the Planet” as a simple mantra to inspire people to build a better world for the greater good.
The last decade was about “utility computing” and the cloud.
The next decade is building better businesses that are Good for People, Good for the Planet.
Learn from the frameworks that have successfully guided large-scale sustainability initiatives.
I’ll share with you stories, strategies, and skills to inspire innovative scenarios for sustainability.
Learn World-Class Frameworks to Change the World
I have a large library of mental models and frameworks I’ve created and curated over more than 20 years at Microsoft and beyond.
Frameworks can help you think better, make better decisions and take better actions, individually or as a team.
I have a long history of creating world-class frameworks at Microsoft to empower individuals, teams, and leaders to achieve extraordinary results.
I’ll share my frameworks with you.
Master Innovation the Agile Way
As Steve Jobs put it, “The only way to win is to innovate.”
This is a guiding principle in today’s fast-paced world.
I created an Agile Innovation framework called the Book of Dreams to scale innovation on Satya Nadella’s innovation team.
It created a movement at Microsoft and became a catalyst for innovation around the world.
I’ll teach you my Agile Innovation framework so you can innovate like a pro in any domain.
Build High Performance Innovation Teams
Innovation is a team sport.
As Phil Jackson put it, “The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
You can play the game of innovation better if you know how to build better teams.
I’ve led remote teams around the world at Microsoft for more than 20 years.
This forced me to learn how to lead remote innovation, build better team collaboration, and how to scale leadership with skill.
I’ll teach you what I know.
Build Products that Change the World
Build and launch products that don’t just enter the market but dominate it.
Steve Jobs wisely pointed out, “The market rewards execution, not ideas.”
Revolutionize your product development and master execution excellence.
In today’s competitive landscape, the ability to execute effectively is what sets successful products apart.
As a Program Manager at Microsoft, I’ve mastered the art of turning visionary ideas into reality.
You can ship like a master Microsoft program manager and change the world.
From Employee to Entrepreneur
Individuals across various roles are recognizing the value of entrepreneurial skills for future-proofing their careers.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai asked employees to be “more entrepreneurial.”
What this simply means is learn the market, take more risks, be proactive in coming up with new ideas and solutions, and be more resourceful.
Whether you aspire to be an entrepreneur, refine your entrepreneurial skills, or nurture your inner-entrepreneur, I’m here to help you hone and harness the true potential of entrepreneurship.
