CEO’s of People First Certified Companies
I want to thank you for leading our company to the next level of productivity and high customer satisfaction. This is the only leadership training that I’ve attended where the participants were actually able to start applying concepts and strategies right after the very first class. It is truly transforming WCI and its Purpose Partners!
The AAIM Leadership Conference was nothing short of AMAZING! Truly, it was one of the best events in my entire professional career! The feedback from everyone was “off-the-charts” positive – I have never seen anything like it! And, the “buzz” created from that day is still present today – it is palpable! All of our people are still getting calls and emails from last week! In addition, we literally “lit-up” the social media universe for two days! And, how do you know when you hit a home run? When you hear that your competitors are talking about your event! WOW!
You and Coach Fisher were a dynamic 1-2 punch! Both of you talked about TRUST. Both of you were passionate! But YOU were captivating!! I watched and listened to the crowd – they were ALL IN from the beginning! Everyone has been talking about the hotel staff you brought up on stage….about Phil breaking the board….and your positive energy! People wrote on the evaluations “I can listen to Jack all day!”, “Jack Lannom was Amazing!!!”, “Jack Lannom – great lesson in humility – all should hear it!” I am still putting together the conference summary, so I will be sure to send you the comments. HERE IS THE BEST PART….we have had many, many comments that May 9th was the best one-day conference they had ever been to!!!!
People First gives your heart and mind a path to make change easier and leadership natural. Jack Lannom artfully combined his unique expertise as a business consultant, martial arts master, and accelerated learning facilitator into an engaging story that can benefit literally anyone who works with people.
The People First Program is not the ‘flavor of the month.’ These are concepts we plan to embrace throughout this organization for years to come. This will become part of our culture. Many of these principles are already embedded in my DNA, but there are some that I will need to work on. You can rest assured that I will make this a priority, and if I fall out of line I will empower the associates around me to remind me as often as necessary.
Mark Miller, Vice President of Training for Chick-fil-A, recently asked a group. 'Who are those men and women who had a profound impact on your life? Who helped shape you? Who marked you?' I’ve asked myself those questions, and Jack Lannom is on my short list.
We have seen immediate results in personnel and for myself it was a big wake-up call on how to operate my own business. I thought I had the answers but People First truly enlightened me to a much better way to conduct business and to truly put People First. Thank you, Jack, for a life change.
Your program strengthened management’s communication tools, strategic planning knowledge, team building, and helped us to believe in our ability to achieve lofty goals. We accomplished a great deal and we had fun doing so. Thank you for helping me create an environment where the pursuit of excellence is part of the culture.
I think the best words of support come directly from that tough field. Here are some of their personal responses: 1) I still am energized from the presentation by Jack. It is great to visit with many of my managers who talk about his being a vital part of our best meeting ever. 2) Great presentation at a time when our company needs it. 3) Great meeting. Ever since, I’ve been pointing to the future and doubting my limitations. 4) Everyone (the world) should have an opportunity to learn your outlook on life. Perhaps changes will happen sooner. 5) Thanks, Jack for a great uplifting presentation. Our sales team loved the 5 key points ending with yes! 6) Very energizing. And it hit home. I’m looking forward to part two…and the book. 7) Your seminar—forward, backwards or sideways—was wonderful. Jack, you hooked me. (This next one is very short..but it’s from one of our ‘difficult to move’ division presidents … when I saw this response I wanted to frame it.) 8) Great, exciting, a rewarding experience. 9) Leaving a legacy in our personal and business affairs is so important, yet so simple. Your presentation – displayed with great passion – was the key for us to hear this message. (Here’s another short but revealing message to Jack) 10) Thank you and God Bless you. (And the last one to share from the field …) 11) The compelling, haunting message, which emerges again and again, is that – I am the captain of my ship – I set the course- I alone am responsible for the missing – and I can do it. Thanks. Now, Jimmy Rogers will share one more response with you … I – too – am still using, and applying techniques and lessons learned from my new coach, Jack Lannom. But here is a response that represents all of us in the Florida Group – It’s a quote that is printed on the back of Jack’s brochure: ‘We had the fortune to have Jack Lannom kick off our statewide management meeting.’ In less than two hours, I was in front of my team – attempting to break a board with my bare hand – and because Jack Lannom said I could do it. His dynamic, inspirational message filled us with positive energy (chi). And his core messages were repeated by my management team throughout the conference. Would I recommend him to other companies? Without reservation.
Congratulations on your book, and thanks for your interest and praise for our company.
