Building Leaders in Business and Life
Book John For Your Event8 Reasons to Hire John

So you’ve set up a Leadership Event or Training Program for your company…THAT’S GREAT!

Everyone piles into a large room or conference center. The speaker of the hour takes the stage and begins talking, everyone is listening intently a fresh cup of coffee in their hands. But then the person keeps on talking, and talking, and TALKING until finally eyes glaze over and employees nod their heads in rote obedience to the words they are hearing.

They’re still getting something out of it right?

Not really… what they’re really thinking about is the leftover Chinese food they’ve got waiting at home, the kid’s soccer game this next Saturday, the fight they got into with their spouse before they left for work, and the 300 emails that have stacked up in their inbox since the speaker started droning on and on.

It’s time to shake things up a bit!!!

What I’m going to do is take a laser-focused approach with your employees. I take the time to get to know your company, what you do well, and where you can improve, before I ever walk on the stage, or into your building. Then I get OFF the stage as fast as I can (it drives my sound guys nuts). We move past the facade of politeness between complete strangers and get people talking. We ask hard-hitting questions about the motivations, fears, and desires each of us have. It’s going to get REAL.

…And you’re going to get results!!!

It’s time to shake off the mantle of mediocrity and accelerate leadership influence, empower team performance, and boost company commitment.
