About J. Scot Heathman
J. Scot Heathman’s life is marked by a desire to shoot for the skies. Throughout his career, Scot learned the importance of relatability and resiliency, and became a respected servant leader. In 2019, however, that resiliency would be tested beyond anything he had ever experienced. He was in a car accident and after an MRI of his head, doctors discovered that he had a brain tumor. This experience taught him how impactful his own lessons could be in inspiring others, and prompted a unique opportunity to elevate others. 
Today, Scot inspires CEO’s to front-line leaders to ‘command with courage’ so they can lead more effectively, drive a culture of innovation, and build a bigger bottom line. His Commander Level coaching programs inspire his clients to lead with relatability and respect, and embrace their vulnerability for positive change. Scot has Master's degrees in Organizational Leadership, Operational Planning & Strategy, and National Security & Strategic Studies, and is certified in Emotional Intelligence, designed to take leadership performance to the highest altitudes.  He’s also the author of the upcoming book “Command With Courage” about resilience and elevating beyond adversity.
