"Olympic loser." How often do you think of a high performance, world-class athlete as a loser? With a "win-at-all-cost" mentality, Jason Dorland's Olympic loss became devastating, disabling him for years as he struggled with identity and despair. Today, after a significant shift in consciousness, Jason coaches a team-culture built around compassion, empathy and love-for self, for one another, and for their competitors. He inspires many who need to perform at a high level without losing their humanity or their spirit.
Jason Dorland is an author, Olympian, coach, entrepreneur and storyteller who has dedicated his life to the pursuit of excellence for himself and those he supports. He is a graduate of The Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, taught high school for 15 years and is the co-founder of Left Coast Naturals-an organic and natural food manufacturer and distributor in Vancouver. During his 10 years of coaching high-school rowing, Jason's crews won 12 International Championship events, set a Canadian course record time and won back-to-back events with the same four athletes-a feat never before achieved at a National Championship. When Jason is now sharing his experiences and life-lessons through his keynotes and workshops, he consults as a high-performance coach for athletes, artists and executives while promoting his recent book: SIX DAYS AWAY.
