About Jamie

Speaker, Leadership Trainer, Grapho-therapist. Referred to by some as the “personality x-ray machine,” Jamie Mason Cohen is a certified grapho-therapist and leadership strategist whose TEDx talk on how to spot a leader through their handwriting has been viewed more than 1.6 million times.

His unique and unusual ability to analyze people’s handwriting in less than 60 seconds has been called “impressive and a bit frightening” by Forbes, and as showcasing “the power of a superhero” by TEDx. His gift allows him to help spot a person’s strengths and provide instant insights into their blind spots in ways they may not be aware of themselves.

Jamie uses your audience’s handwriting traits as a personalized framework to help each person gain instant insights into their strengths and weaknesses.

He combines this approach with practical leadership strategies your organization can implement, backed by The Leadership Circle’s world-renowned 10+ year data study of 50,000 leaders on what makes leaders great. Your organization will see tangible, positive results, with audience members lining up to speak with Jamie after the emotionally-moving experience, inspired to apply what they’ve learned.

"This is really a sincere testimonial. I’ve seen and worked with a lot of speakers over the years and I don’t think any speaker will come to your meeting more prepared, more researched and deliver the best message you have ever heard in a long time.”

Keevin Loucks
Regional Vice-President of Group Business, Sun Life

“I believe that culture change only occurs through real dialogue about what's working, what's not working and why. Highly conscious and competent leaders co-create the right kind of environment to facilitate an elevated level of personal and collective discovery."
