Hi, I'm AJ Sarcione
My company is called Get Your Shine and with my Imagination Method™ I help you spark a willingness to wonder. CEOs, leaders, HR & internal communications use the tool to build plans and tactics that drive great engagement, by helping their organizations turn negative 'What Ifs' into what's possible.
If you’re interested in learning more, I’m always open to a quick chat to see what spark I can help you create.

Anyone who has gone through a major business transformation knows the importance MOJO plays. Having been through a few big ones myself, I’ve learned that it’s the moments when leaders create a spark that fuels this internal magic.
When I was a communications executive at Yahoo, we were going through a major multi-billon dollar change that would result in Yahoo being sold. I noticed the smiles on people’s faces that were usually so bright had started to fade.
I found an opportunity.
I built a global internal marketing organization from the ground up, which helped our CEO inspire employees as Yahoo was bought by Verizon, ultimately to be combined with our long time competitor, AOL. Given the success we had, a new job was created for me, “head of MOJO and employee experience," and I spent the next year flying around the world meeting and motivating employees with our new CEO’s vision. In both roles, I leveraged imagination to design programs and tools that helped our employees shine.
During this time, I witnessed that people who imagined what was possible appeared happier and moved forward more easily.
So I started my company, Get Your Shine, to spark organization’s positive curiosity with the Imagination Method™.
