Descriere

For the last 20+ years, I have read plenty of books on leadership, supervision and management. There are some real good ones out there! With that being said, often, when reading a book, it was filled with theory and inspirational stories and I would ask myself, "How do I apply this fluff to the real world?" This book has been intended to be easy reading and organized with short bursts of information which are straightforward and very simple things to do. Because they rest in human nature, they have stood the test of time and will work with all generations in the workplace. The methods and concepts I present have been successful for the thousands of leaders I have had the privilege of working with in all sectors of business.

Despre autor

John Graci, Keynote speaker, Author and Director of Leadership Training When you combine the charisma, passion and energy John Graci brings to a room, with a wonderful sense of humor spawned from his days as a major market radio announcer, you have the necessary ingredients for an entertaining keynote speaker. John has been delighting audiences from Fortune 500 companies to small business owners for the past 11 years with his practical approach to motivation. He's performed at locations ranging from the Mirage in Las Vegas to overnight company retreats located in International Falls, MN! John addresses thousands of men and women each year on the subject of professional development. He brings real life examples to his audiences. He has the unique ability to tactfully help leaders understand how they might be practicing management without a license. His distinctive approach to everyday situations involving employee/boss relationships will have audience members wondering why they have been doing things the hard way all of these years. John's ability to rapidly produce these "Ah Ha" Moments will instantly create an environment where your leaders will be open to change, thus more receptive to taking on the skills they need to be effective in their position. The popularity of his keynote presentation, Motivating Employees Using Common Sense, motivated John to publish his first book in the fall of 2009, "The Buck Stops With You." The book will focus on teaching supervision/management from an in-the-trenches perspective. Actual techniques you can use, no theory! When recently asked if the tone of the book will differ at all from his no-nonsense approach presentation style, John simply said, "I will give you the same sage advice your grandmother would have given you, however, I will keep my teeth in!" John leads a team of highly skilled leadership consultants that work with over 5,000 students each year. He has extensive experience in banking; call center, warehouse and factory environments. John received his bachelor's degree in Speech Communication from the University of Wisconsin River Falls before working with Space Center, Inc., KLBB Radio, US Bank, State Farm and Employers Association, Inc.

LAST THOUGHTS

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

With admiration and respect, for Ross Reishus (12/23/1938–9/21/2017), my friend and mentor. His ability to weave a story and command an audience inspired and paved the way for me to continue his passion for real-life, common-sense management training and speaking. Without his support and encouragement, I would not have had the courage to excel as a leader.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Leaders aren’t born . . . they are made. When a baby is born, people do not say, A leader is born! They say, It’s a girl! or It’s a boy!

I have been called the Professor of Common Sense for a reason. I firmly believe that my frank talk and unvarnished truth-telling leads to greater profits. I give leaders permission to focus on maximizing their team’s performance, without the academic wackiness and theories.

A business opens its doors to provide a product or service that meets a demand at a profit. Yet, you sit through some seminars and training classes these days and presenters discuss the importance of gaining a deeper understanding of each other. Sounds like they are running a day-care center. What’s interesting is, often the word profit is never spoken, or if it is, it may come across as a dirty word.

Leadership is an intervention. If a leader sees something he likes or dislikes, he must say something to truly be a leader! Being unclear with people on how they are doing is being unkind to people. If you are not coaching when you see unproductive behavior and performance, you are allowing these behaviors to attack your bottom line. Leaders have an obligation to help underachievers meet expectations and become profitable on behalf of the people who are profitable.

As a battled-scarred veteran, who is real and delivers advice from bloodied-nose experience and not ivory-tower theory, I pour myself into every presentation or training session. I give everything I have because I know an engaged mind is a learning mind. I enjoy teaching. I enjoy seeing the light bulb go off above someone’s head! I enjoy persuading people to do things differently in order to make their lives easier.

As a frequently requested presenter and trainer for 20+ years, I have been speaking to audiences ranging from entry-level team members to all
