The Justin Watt Story


In the summer of 2006, Justin Watt was in the fight of his life. Then the unthinkable happened - some of his closest coworkers betrayed the team and covered it up. In a twisted response, others said nothing, and Justin had to make a choice that would alter his own life and many others.

Justin and Jamey Gadoury have presented his dynamic story to hundreds of leaders throughout the country, using video, facilitation, and Q&A. They believe this story will have a powerful impact on your team and are ready to customize it for your objectives.

We believe that powerful stories are one of the most effective tools for adults to reflect, grow, and take inspired action. Some stories captivate our emotions and cognitions because of incredible intensity from life-or-death implications, heavy moral weight, and sheer grittiness. They raise endless questions of “what would I have done - could I have done?” They serve as powerful reference points as we consider our own journeys, growth, and decisions.

Justin’s story is an exemplar of these. It centers around a dilemma that most of us will never face, yet simultaneously represents all our dilemmas. And his environment was so extreme that it gives us fresh eyes for our own environments.

How might Justin’s story help your organization?
