8 Reasons to Hire John Hawkins



A recent study came back with some astonishing results showing the crisis of leadership in today’s companies.

  • Over 60% of today’s leaders experience burnout.
  • 10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring every day.
  • 67% of Millennials are looking for a new job.
  • 84% of organizations anticipate a shortfall of leaders in the next 5 years.
  • Only 18% of organizations say their leaders are “very effective” at meeting business goals.
  • Only 19% of organizations say they are “very effective” at developing leaders

We all know the value of great leaders, and how they are absolutely critical to meeting goals and objectives.  A new development approach is needed to help leaders master the skills and mind-sets needed to succeed AND THRIVE in today’s new world.

John helps Leaders increase productivity and morale, by building Credibility, Capability and Influence! 

Think about it…There have been so many changes in the last 10 years.  Organizations are flatter, more global, and striving to run leaner. Leaders at all levels are being asked to do more with less resources while dealing with the “new normal” of rapid, ongoing change in their people, products, processes and technology. The employees are an incredible mix of Boomers, Gen Xers, Gen Ys, and now Gen Zs.  Let’s not forget the rising number of contract, part-time, and remote employees all working together with vastly different experience and expectations.

What’s the new environment REALLY look like?

The most successful Leaders must rely on strong influencing and communication skills and the ability to navigate a complex network of resources to get the desired results.

The time is ripe for companies to deepen their commitment to Leaders with multifaceted development programs that enable participants to learn new concepts and mind-sets and then put them to work in a real-world practical setting. With stronger Leader development programs in place, companies can improve productivity and morale in the ranks, thereby increasing retention of top talent and enriching the overall leadership pipeline.

So how can companies help their Leaders master the right leadership knowledge, mindset, and behaviors in order to produce the desired results?
