A People First Certified Company

Mr. Jack Lannom
Lannom Worldwide
Dear Jack,

On behalf of All Purpose Partners® at MiTek, words alone cannot adequately express our deep gratitude for the incredible leadership training that has placed our company, now a People First® Certified company, on a path to achieve whatever goals we decide to set for ourselves, both personally and professionally. When we first discussed doing this two years ago, I knew my desire was for MiTek to be a values-based company with a clear, unified mission and vision. I just didn’t know how to get there.

Then Dick Marriott, president of our largest business unit, MiTek USA, Inc , invited you for a session at his annual sales symposium. Your offer to take our company through the People First Certification process was nothing short of amazing. We weren’t very deep into it before it became obvious that People First was to be the framework for our new culture at MiTek.

The book, the process, Dan Philips and the incredible People First leadership manual has provided us with a new “language” with which we now EFFECTIVELY communicate with each other at MiTek. The journey has begun …

We realize there is work yet to be done. We are up to the task. Our path is set and we are excited about advancing toward the peak, our vision … “To live and work in celebration … for MiTek to be in every structure worldwide.”

This program (I hate to even call it that) provides us a distinct competitive advantage. I could not more highly recommend People First to any organization seeking truth, excellence and wisdom in all areas of their business.

Thank you, Jack, and my very best wishes to the entire Lannom Worldwide team!

Sincerely,
Tom

RE: People First Strategic Leadership Training

Dear Jack,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at Lannom Worldwide for all of your hard work, attention to detail, fabulous training and exceptional support! Words can hardly describe the tremendous relationships that we have formed with each other and with your team. The training is deeply personal, highly engaging, uniquely relevant, and exceptionally delivered. The Wheel of Trust, Pyramid of People Power and the development of personal core values, personal mission and personal vision are some of the most powerful tools that I have ever encountered in my career…and best of all, I learned it at MiTek!

The most impactful aspect of this training is that it is deeply personal…”You can’t impart what you do not possess!”

From a personal perspective, Passing on a Legacy was perhaps the single most important contemplative moment that I had during the past several weeks. Considering the imprint that one’s life will leave on this world is a very difficult question that most never dare to ask. I learned that it is about setting the course through the values-based living. Life is all about relationships. The foundation of relationships is trust. It took me several weeks to develop my personal mission statement because the question of legacy is serious business!

Thank you for being part of my personal growth and our professional development here at MiTek! Class is over, but the real work of transforming ourselves and our organization has just begun! It is a process and a lifelong journey. We are not only People First Certified; we are now the “blue” tile on the grey wall!

I Am Proud of You!
I Believe in You!
I Need You!
Thank You!
YES!

Make it a People First Day!
