“Lankford in his book makes it clear, Leadership is the answer, but unfortunately so many of us just do it wrong. John guides you, directs you and asks the tough questions in this incredible call to action book on Leadership. His experience along with outstanding empirical data makes you think on how your organization “does leadership”. He challenges you to make leadership purposeful and not accidental. I have read hundreds of leadership books, this one strikes at the core and gives tangible methods to create a leadership model that will take your organization to the next level. It is a must read for anyone looking to break out of the pack.” -Dave Nemmers- President, Midstate Security Company

We Achieved Our Ultimate Goal in Our First Two-day Strategic Planning Session
"I was a bit skeptical that we could accomplish our ultimate goal in our first two-day strategic planning session, but we did. We have set the course to success, and demonstrated we have the commitment to stay the course. I am excited for the next steps and particularly encouraged by the enthusiasm of our executive team."
Our Executive Team Is More Excited About Our Business Than We Have Been In Ten Years!
"In just two days of strategic planning our executive team has become more excited about our business than we have been in the last ten years. I am very encouraged about our future. Pulling it off will be great fun and the process will unite us in a common purpose. I have a lot of confidence in John"
The Importance of Execution, Focus and Accountability
"Going into the workshop, I didn’t know if the content would relate to a non-profit healthcare organization. It did, and I plan on following up on some items that will help in the hospital’s operations and our ability to execute more effectively. The workshop reinforced things that leaders have heard before, but drove home the basics and importance of execution, focus and accountability"
A Systemic Culture Change System
"I believe in a systems approach to improvement. I was introduced to the Joseph M. Juran (Quality Trilogy) early in my career in management, and I worked with an organization that used it. It worked. John's executive seminar takes this to another level. By tying together quality (customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and business results) with metrics management, constructive steps can be taken to remove dead wood, recognize and reward top performers, and execute a process to eliminate 'busy' and 'good' workers with 'focused' and 'excellent' performers. This systemic cultural change allows a company to align the organization effectively."
Brings Home the Importance Focus and Execution in Meeting Strategic Objectives
"John’s Execution Workshop reinforces the importance of focus and execution in meeting strategic objectives. It is too easy to get caught up in the 'business' of the everyday and lose sight of that truth. A strategic plan is just a piece of paper without alignment of all involved, accountability and a shared commitment to execute the plan. John covers these topics with a directness that hits home and a sense of humor that allows us to look at ourselves with honesty"
