This past week, I had the privilege of being invited to the Flourishing Leadership Institute’s “LEAF” workshop. LEAF is a new approach used by change agents (coaches, speakers, trainers, facilitators, consultants, and leaders) to lead groups of all sizes to shape their future or solve specific problems better, faster and more naturally than thought possible with other methods. I was there to premiere a video I shot and edited about Jesse Harless. Jesse is using the LEAF method to help people who are recovering from addiction – and his results are getting glowing reviews. This video is the media marketing he needed to move his program to a national scale.
My producing partner, Caroline Comport and I, drove to Dover, New Hampshire to shoot a session Jesse was holding for six guys living in a sober house. They’re working to stay clean before returning home. We shot the session and then interviewed Jesse extensively about his past addiction, his recovery, and his mission moving forward. The result was the video above, along with an hour-long video showing Jesse actually conducting his workshop with the guys at Bonfire Recovery. That video can be seen on Jesse’s website.
Jesse is the new face of recovery. He’s gonna be everywhere! So glad I was a stop in his incredible journey.
