Tell Me What To Say S. 2 Ep. 12: Founder of SYP Partners - Keith Yamashita
Keith Yamashita is a dad. Husband. Systems thinker. Entrepreneur. Public speaker. Stroke sufferer. Photographer. Designer. Author. A passionate participant in making a more equitable, inclusive, creative world.
Collaborating with CEOs and leadership teams in moments of transformation to build great companies and organizations, he’s had the great privilege to work alongside leaders at Apple, IBM, Starbucks, AARP, Weight Watchers and Nike among many others.
In 2018, Keith suffered a stroke, launching him on a journey towards his own healing and an exploration of human suffering, vulnerability, and what it really takes to overcome adversity—and find renewal. The ingredients required to renew oneself—from the inside out, from the spiritual and sublime to the pragmatic everydayness of discovering and nurturing resilience—inspire and fascinate him. He is currently writing a book on this topic: A Human, Being.
In 2020, in response to the global pandemic, the decimation of the economy, and the deep racial reckoning of the nation, Keith launched a series of gatherings called This Human Moment. The aim of this effort is to help people sit with darkness, delve into grief, and choose to find renewal and a collective imagination about what could be on the other side.
